Glamping Somerset

Looking for a countryside getaway with a difference? Glamping in Somerset could be the perfect escape!

This small county in the south of England is all too often overlooked, but it has so much to offer. Think idyllic rolling countryside, picturesque villages, and epic views – often all to yourself.

Glamping is the perfect way to immerse yourself in all the natural beauty this lovely corner of England has to offer. So, I’ve teamed up with Unique hideaways to showcase some of their most amazing glamping properties in Somerset.

There are lots of beautiful spots to explore while you’re glamping in Somerset. The rolling countryside of the Quantock Hills AONB, the limestone slopes of the Mendip Hills, and the rugged coastline – as well as charming historic towns like Wells and Glastonbury. Don’t miss a trip to Cheddar Gorge – with its staggering views, exciting network of caves, and – of course – numerous cheese shops!

Whatever you get up to, you’ll want some gorgeous accommodation to unwind in. And that’s where Unique hideaways come in!

They have an amazing collection of unique accommodations and glamping spots across the UK – all of them carefully handpicked with and vetted. So you know all these properties are going to be the best of the best…

Shepherd’s huts are one of the most popular glamping options, and when you catch a glimpse of the Lamb’s Tale Shepherd’s Hut in Somerset it’s easy to see why.

This is a gorgeous, hand-crafted hut that really takes glamping to a whole new level. Think king-sized bed with memory foam mattress, beautiful cream-painted wooden furnishings, and a hardwood floor.

Keep things cosy with a log burner, a heated towel rail, AND underfloor heating. There’s even WiFi and a flat-screen TV – not something you can expect to see in most glamping huts.

Oh – and like all the shepherd’s huts in this post, Lamb’s Tale has its very own private hot tub. Turn on the bubbles, pour yourself a glass of something sparkly, and get ready to unwind!

You’ll find the Lamb’s Tale and Duck’s Puddle (up next) shepherd’s huts on the same working farm. So groups can travel together, but still enjoy a bit of privacy.

Again, you can expect a seriously stunning home-from-home retreat. And again, there’s a king-sized bed, cosy log-burner, underfloor heating, heated towel rails, WiFi, and a TV and DVD player.

Thow open the huge double doors in the morning for an almost-alfresco breakfast, revelling in the splendour of the surrounding countryside. Speaking of al-fresco dining, there’s also a BBQ and firepit in your private garden area – as well as a little patio with table and chairs.

And to top it all off – your own private hot tub, perfect for starry nights in the Quantock Hills!
