Day 9 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to the Esme's Escape in Somerset.

First Impression:

The hut faces away from the owner’s own property and has a garden and lovely outdoor space. The interior is beautifully done and well thought out.

Great to meet Karen and Simon after working with them since 2018. They have created something unique here. 

The Accommodation:

On entering the hut, the double bed fills one end of the room and is surrounded by black and white photographs, showing snapshots from the land girl era.

A useful fold out table and chairs is a great place to eat breakfast or to plan your day, whilst the kitchenette offers basic but useful facilities to cook up a simple meal.

The hut comes with its own en-suite shower room which is ideal for couples looking for a romantic break.

Outside the WWII theme continues with Esme's bloomers hanging on the line! Here you can relax in the warmth of the wood burning hot tub which takes a maximum of 2 hours to heat, giving you time to enjoy cooking and eating a pizza using the pizza oven.

Afterwards you can snuggle up in the supplied robes, around the firepit and toast some tasty marshmallows. 

Cosy and welcoming interior

Food and Drink:

The owners leave you tea, coffee, sugar and marshmallows and you can request a delicious large and locally produced breakfast hamper for an extra cost.

In the village there is a Michelin guide pub - The White Horse - that people come from miles around to visit, so it is definitely worth pre-booking for this, with Sunday lunch being really popular! 

Relax in the hot tub

Jess' top tip:

You can travel to the gorgeous Jurassic coast beaches from here or why not bring your bikes and cycle to the cycle themed cafe - The Feed Station - and beyond.

Alternatively pop on your hiking books and climb St Michael's Hill. This truly is a great base to explore this region.
