Our latest guests thoroughly enjoyed a couple of visits to Barrington Court NT and when it comes to the gardens they couldn't have picked a better time to enjoy the fruits of the gardeners labours when everything is looking at it's most bountiful and floriferous! And of course I encouraged them to call in at the Barrington Pottery for hopefully a bit of souvenir shopping!
This is what greets you on arrival 😃 We're having the most amazing run of dry, sunny weather at the moment and looking at the forecast for the next couple of weeks, it looks like it's going to continue. Perfect for a stay in a shepherds hut
For all you fire enthusiasts, these supplies should satisfy your inner pyrotechnic - logs for the wood fired hot tub and firepit, kindling, firelighters, tea lights and BBQ coals - plenty to keep you entertained 🔥🍔🌲🕯️
New feature..... an infinity pool 😍 No, not really.... just overfilled the hot tub and I can't tell you how extremely tempted I was to jump in it today. It's super, duper hot here in Stocklinch today 🌞
The 50th anniversary of the moon landing has got me enthused about all things space so with the help of a nifty star gazing app - SkyView - you too can look up at the night sky from the comfort of the hot tub and know what you're looking at 😉. And with the beautiful clear skies we're getting at the moment you can easily see the International Space Station overhead. Wonder what might happen up there in the next 50 years.....
Rain has stopped play! Tonight we were meant to be going to an outdoor theatre for some alfresco entertainnent in the sunshine, sipping some fizz and nibbling on a picnic but this temporary blip in the weather has put paid to that! However I've discovered that Barrington Court NT @nationaltrust, a very pleasant wander over the hill, have got outdoor theatre company, @thethreeinchfools Three Inch Fools, coming next month to perform their alternative version of Much A Do About
Summer at the Stocklinch Shepherd's Hut! We're having the most amazing run of weather at the moment - absolutely perfect for glamping! Looking forward to welcoming you here for your Summer 2019 glamping holiday
This is just a small selection of the wonderful independent shops we have in our thriving local market town of Ilminster. Boutique, niche, sustainable, award winning, local food and drink, interiors and antiques, haute couture, gifts and flowers and plenty of coffee stops - there's definitely something for everyone!
This is not Tour de France terrain (thankfully!) but with the NCN Route 33 and South Somerset Cycle Route literally passing the door of the hut you could have a Tour de South Somerset instead.
