Unique Eco Hot Tub!

Exclusively handmade, the hot tub is perfect to share a wood-fired al fresco bathing experience, for a soak or to just unwind, whatever the weather. The stove gets the tub up to your preferred temperature quickly, whilst you pour out the fizz and chill, watching the sun go down and the stars come out (logs for hot tub use are inclusive of 1 bag per night booked).

Roasting Marshmallows

Enjoy the outdoors for much longer around the fire pit or cook up a meal, whilst telling stories and keeping toasty warm. Fire is a natural gathering point, and the fire pit is no exception in allowing you to find your inner ways.

Location, location, location

Len's Hut is located in a pretty special spot - surrounded by gorgeous green hayfields and just below one of the highest points on the Mendip Hills, facing south with stunning views across the unique landscape of the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury Tor and the distant Quantock Hills. You'll experience glorious isolation whilst being near your car if required, up to 100 metres from the former farmhouse and farm buildings.

Comfort, comfort, comfort

Your shepherd's hut retreat is fully en-suite with flushing toilet, double glazed and fully insulated, with a wood-burning stove plus an energy efficient electric radiator, and heated towel rail. So whatever the weather you are guaranteed to be warm and snug. A good night's sleep is also assured with a generously proportioned double bed, Tempur memory mattress, and luxurious duvet with fine Egyptian cotton sheets.

Len's hut also benefits from modern technology including a DAB radio, Bose Bluetooth speaker, Wi-Fi, TV, DVD player and mood lighting and full mains electricity.

What is there to do?

Local attractions include Wells (England's smallest cathedral city), Glastonbury (England's hippiest town), Wookey Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge, plus some great walking and cycling country with a wealth of quirky pubs and eateries. Maesbury Castle is only a short walk away.
