We are Matt and Fiona Day and we fell in love with this part of the world back in 1997 when we discovered Somerset on a cycling holiday in the Quantock Hills. And it was on this holiday that the idea of running our own tourism business was first dreamt up. We finally made the move in 2000 and have been living in Somerset ever since. However, it was not until we moved to Stocklinch in 2012 with our 2 boys that the opportunity to start our own tourism business became possible and even then it took us 5 years to get the Stocklinch Shepherd's Hut finally open for business!
But thanks to Matt's brother, Jim, carpenter extraordinaire & perfectionist, our hut is very unique - bespoke and hand built with meticulous attention to detail. It has a calm, relaxing feel, and is a great space to chill out in and we are very pleased to be able to share this with you. With some very clever design, in a space measuring just 7' by 15' there is somewhere to sleep, eat, cook and wash - amazing!
One of the very first things we did when we moved into The Old Post Office was to plant hundreds of trees in our field so you'll find the hut in a very private spot tucked away in about a third of an acre of orchard, surrounded by willows and other native trees & hedging. However we were careful not to plant anything that would get in the way of the wonderful uninterrupted views across the fields looking towards the Blackdown, Brendon and Quantock Hills with distant glimpses of Exmoor.
We aim to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay and we are only to happy to help if there is something you would like us to organise for you beforehand or during your visit to make your time here even better!
