At the heart of each hut, a wood burning Devon forge baker stove provides warmth and a cosy environment in which to relax. Each hut has a stylish “English” interior with Farrow & Ball painted woodwork, William Morris printed roman blinds and Sanderson plaid cushion covers. A day bed adorned with locally produced sheepskin throws and a generous supply of cushions creates a comfortable space for lounging and relaxing. We offer a complimentary newspaper of your choice each morning. Each hut has a small but fully-equipped kitchen including a solid oak worktop, a Shaw mini butler sink and a Neff 2-ring hob. Below is a cupboard allowing for storage as well as an integrated fridge. The wood burner provides a small oven in which to heat a lasagne, casserole or bake potatoes. A kadai fire bowl with BBQ grill outside provides further cooking opportunities. Locally sourced charcoal is available to buy. We provide all your cutlery, crockery, bin bags and washing utensils. We also supply condiments and sauces. We provide a breakfast hamper sourced from our local farm shop when you arrive and can provide further meals to be delivered or to await your arrival if you wish. Delicious organic eggs are sourced from a small farm in our village. Our huts are only a 10 minute pleasant walk through our fields to our local inn The Rising Sun in the pretty Quantock village of West Bagborough. Be sure to book for a fantastic evening meal or Sunday lunch.More

Thanks Jack. Glad you had a good stay and yes you were right the wood being slightly damp probably didnt help you to get the water really hot. We've since built little wood sheds by each hut so the wood is much drier in any...More

What Matt (the owner) is doing here is amazing, the location on the hill is beyond words, it truly is, so tranquil and a pleasure to the eyes. We spent many an evening soaking it up alongside a warm glowing fire in the pit. It...More
