We have just returned from two lovely nights staying in Shepherds Rest which is the first of the 4 huts as you enter the retreat. You can tell a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into not only the huts, but the landscaping around them too.
The huts are really cosy and cute, and are a great small space to stay in. The internal layout is superb and works really well with everything you could need with a fabulous little kitchen and a great bathroom, we absolutely loved it!
Obviously with it being December we didn't make the most of the outside space as it was a bit 'fresh' outside temperature wise. (Still beautiful though) However I think in the warmer months this would have been a great extension to the experience as the decking, fire pit and BBQ area overlooking the pond looked great.
Location wise the retreat is great as it's only 5 minutes out of Crewkerne by car, 30 mins from some of the best coastline in the UK, and set in a really peaceful and panoramic part of the countryside. Overall highly recommended!
