Willow Weaving

I know what you’re thinking.......is there no end to Mrs (and Mr) Day’s industriousness! It may well be Mothers Day but we’ve been hard at it making this willow screen to preserve your modesty when trotting to and from the hot tub. And the groundsman can effortlessly move it to one side to get in with mower to keep things looking spic and span for you - genius 😉. #willowweaving #willow #mothersday2019 #willowhurdle#hottub #shepherdshut #shepherdshutglamping #luxuryshepherdshut#somersetshepherdshut #motheringsunday2019 #woodlandcraft#hedgerowcrafts #getoutdoors

Quick Dip

Perfect weather for a quick dip in the tub - lovely! #woodfiredhottub#hottub #springbreak2019 #lunchbreak #thisisthelife #getoutdoors#timeout #somerset #stocklinchshepherdshut #justbeing #wellness

Last Orders

5th/6th/7th April is your last chance for a weekend stay until the very end of June and for all you live music lovers it couldn’t be better as we are within staggering distance of Stocklinch Ales where blues band Mule will be performing on the Friday night and Amanda, local caterer extraordinaire will be serving home made steak pie with braised cabbage. And with the hot tub to laze in the morning after the night before it couldn’t get more perfect! Book now to avoid disappointment! #stocklinchales #fridaynightout #livemusic #weekendaway #hottub#woodfiredhottub #shepherdshut #luxuryshepherdshut#somersetshepherdshut #somerset #microbrewery #steakpie #beer

Lady Luck

Our mid week escapees have lucked out big time with the weather and given they reluctantly had to postpone because of Storm Gareth they deserve it! #birdsong #beesbuzzing #springbreak2019 #midweekbreak#midweekescape #springsunshine #luxuryshepherdshut #shepherdshut#hottub #springtime #backtonature #justbeing #recuperation

Wash Day

Is this a very sad reflection of how boring I am.....? I can’t tell you how much pleasure I get from being able to hang the hut bedding out to dry in the sunshine! Perfect weather for it 😁. #springsunshine #blueskies#springbreak2019 #cleansheets #shepherdshut #getaway#luxuryglamping #visitsomerset #discoversouthsomerset #sunnymonday#freshsheets #getoutdoors #freshair #behindthescenes #washday#luxuryshepherdshut

Spring Sunshine

Defo a ‘doors wide open’ kind of day today -absolutely gorgeous down here in Somerset and this gloriousness is set to last for at least the next week. Who hoo! 😎😁☀️🌞🌅. #visitsomerset #discoversomerset#swisbest #somersetlife #luxuryglamping #somersetshepherdshut#shepherdshut #weekendaway #couplesescape #getaway #timeout#justbeing #timetogether

Tearoom Circuit

The Pottery Kitchen is on the Stocklinch Shepherds Hut Tea Room circuit and only requires you to take a leisurely and extremely pleasant stroll over the hill for a well deserved slice of cake - perfect.

Time Out

Practising what I preach, we’re just back from a delicious child free night away staying at the most wonderful Pardlestone Farm in the Somerset Quantock Hills (we didn’t even leave the county!). The Quantocks is where our love affair with Somerset began 22 years ago and it still delivers with great walks, glorious scenery and outstanding hospitality! Tip top meal at The Hood Arms and super tasty treats at The Foxy Bean at Adscombe. We still love discovering Somerset - it never ceases to amaze us! Now we’re back feeling refreshed and recharged getting things ready here for this weekend’s guests 😊. #somerset #pardlestonefarm#thehoodarms #thefoxybeansatadscombe #quantocks #walkingsomerset#som

Positive Feedback

Lovely comments from this weekend’s guests - highlights include star gazing from the hot tub, bird spotting at the feeder, sighting a deer, reading the books in the hut, eating my misshapen biscuits (!) and sinking into the feather pillows! 😍 #stargazing #woodfiredhottub #birdspotting#lazysunday #duvetday #somersetwildlife #shepherdshutsomerset#somerset #luxuryglamping #wellnessbreak #justbeing

Cider Country

Just back from a mega 10K yomp to Burrow Hill and back (D of E training regime for son No.1!) which I highly recommend. Sneaked round the back of Barrington Court NT, across the fields, up through endless cider orchards, short climb to the top of this mystical little hill and we were rewarded with the most enormous views of Somerset - fab! Time it right and you could do a spot of cider tasting and shopping at Somerset Cider Brandy, picnic lunch at the top of the hill and then weave your way home - perfect way to spend the day! south somerset cider

Happy Anniversary!

More wedding anniversary celebrations this weekend at the Stocklinch Shepherds Hut. Huge congratulations to T&A on their 6th anniversary which is apparently iron or candy....I know what I’d prefer!

Chicken Run!

Popped in to see Nina down at Lawns Cottage today and picked up some more of these cracking eggs courtesy of her "ladies" for tonights guests! They really are delicious and I'm sure that's down to the paradise Nina has created making for extremely happy hens - it's just like the final scenes of Chicken Run - one of my fav films! Thank you to Nina and her girls! Enjoy!

Springtime in Stocklinch

Springtime in Somerset! Here are 9 reasons to book your springbreak here at the Stocklinch Shepherds Hut but there are plenty more!

Spring Is In The Air!

Very welcome signs of spring! #springsunshine #springbreak #springtime #spring2019 #visitsomerset #somerset #stocklinchshepherdshut #bees #blossom #plumblossom #honey #honeybees #shepherdshut @ Stocklinch Shepherd's Hut

Hunting for Treasure

I'm embarrassed to have to admit that this weekend's guests now know more about my local town than I do thanks to the @treasuretrailsuk route they took around Ilminster. They said it was a good one so I'm going to have to give it a go! #treasuretrails #ilminster #somerset #weekendaway#timetogether #luxuryglamping #somersetshepherdshut

Last Call for Four Men on the Job

Kev, the brewer, will be appearing with his band, Four Men on The Job, for its final performance at Stocklinch Ales - it will be a night to remember!!! Doors open 7 pm till 11 pm. There will be food available with roast pork, stuffing and apple sauce. Sounding like the perfect combo for a great night.

Goldilocks Zone

Whilst the hut boasts a compact kitchen that will more than meet your self-catering needs, cooking on holiday isn't everyone's idea of a relaxing break. So luckily we have not 1 but 2 dining options both within the "goldilocks" zone. The Barrington Boar and The Duke of York #thesheptonduke are just the right walking distance to help build up your appetite and to aid your digestion on the road home. And with the days getting longer you'll manage to get over the hill in the daylight for your pre-dinner G & T - perfect! Don't forget to book your table! #thebarringtonboar #thesheptonduke #walktothepub #localpub#barringtonpottery #somerset #somersetpub #somersetfoodanddrink#villagepub #weekendawa

Somerset People

This is a short film featuring people who live and work on the Somerset levels made by a local celebrity family, The Temperley's, talented in film, fashion, photography and cider! From the highwire walkers to the anarchist and non fossil fuel communities via cider makers and migrant workers. This is so worth watching whether you already live here or if you are needing a bit of persuading to come and discover Somerset. Book a stay here in Stocklinch to meet our village locals and not-so-locals who saw the light and decided to settle here! Click on this link to watch - enjoy! Somerset People

Duvet Days

With weather like this, it's best just to stick to drinking coffee and eating biscuits! Blue skies should be back soon ☀️🌞😀. #coffeeandbiscuits #rainydays #duvetdays #stormyweather #cosystay #cosyshepherdshut #radio #chess #bbcradio #somersetliving #somersetlife

Pedal Power

For those of you on 2 wheels rather than 4 we are an easy cycle from Crewkerne station. Your route brings you past the totally on trend @thefeedstation for a handy and extremely satisfying pitstop 🍵🍰🍽️. Once refuelled your journey continues on passing through Somerset cider apple orchards along narrow country lanes finishing with a delicious descent into Stocklinch. I'm very happy to help with your shopping or you can nip over the hill to Angie's Village Shop and Tea Room to stock up on lots of tasty treats! And if after all that you've got any energy left there's plenty of pedalling adventures to be had from the hut or alternatively you could ease your aching muscles wallowing in the hot
