Beautiful Shepherd’s Hut on the edge of Exmoor with its own private garden and traditional wood fired hot tub.

Recently built from scratch by the owner, this unique shepherd’s hut is the perfect hideaway to explore the beautiful Somerset countryside. Elmhut is nestled in a quiet corner of a small village with views of the hills, steam railway and the sea.

Based in a quiet village 3 miles from the Somerset coast, it is the ideal base to explore the numerous local footpaths and the popular Steam Coast Trail that can take you all the way to Watchet, Dunster or the local West Somerset Railway station. We are located on the edge of Exmoor and only 5 minutes away from the nearest beach. We are also surrounded by lots of beautiful, quaint villages where you can browse the shops or tuck into a cream tea (cream first of course!).

A lot of thought has gone into the design and building of the hut to ensure it is practical but also cosy and retains all the comforts of home and more. It has a very comfortable king size bed, snug seating area, separate bathroom and powerful shower, and a neat but fully equipped kitchen.

Elmhut is situated in its own private garden, where you can enjoy the traditional woodfired hot tub, firepit/BBQ, listen to the birds and take in the views of the beautiful Somerset countryside. On rainy days, there’s also underfloor heating throughout, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, and a cosy corner to read a book.

With easy access to the coastal town of Minehead, many local beaches and everything Exmoor has to offer, it is in the perfect spot!
