Perfect for either a romantic break or just a well-needed escape from the bustle of daily life, The Shepherds Hut Retreat offers 4 beautifully styled accommodations for adults only. Set amongst the trees on the water's edge each luxury hut has its own private decking, fire pit and use of the Woodland Sauna where guests have the chance to relax, regenerate and revitalise in a most beautiful setting.

Inside the spacious Shepherds Huts; a beautiful bathroom with fully equipped kitchen along with comfy double bed and TV with DVD player.

The Woodland Sauna compromises of a physiotherm infrared sauna which has greater health benefits than a regular sauna, as it heats the body and not the air temperature. After a sauna session, guests can use the outdoor shower facilities.

Looking out guests will catch glimpses of ducks paddling on the pond, buzzards circling Castle Hill and deer grazing in the field.

The location is on the borders of Somerset, Dorset and Devon and easily accessible by road and rail. The Shepherds Hut Retreat is a great base to explore all the South West and especially the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

These accommodations are available all year round for weekend/mid-week or full week stays with a changeover day of Friday. Other changeover days - Monday / Tuesday and Saturday with a minimum stay of 2 nights. Prices start at £495 per week, weekend nights from around £100 per night, and mid-week nights from around £80 a night. One hour sauna for 2 adults will cost £10.

No all male groups.

Absolutely amazing little retreat, it's was extremely clean and well kept. The situation of the hut is in such a beautiful spot, so peaceful, my only regret was we didn't stay long enough. Definitely one of my best experiences of glamping. Already looking to book again.
