Two luxury shepherd’s huts with wood fired hot tub nestled amongst orchard trees in the beautiful Porlock Vale.  Also *NEW* in 2023 – a Yurt which sleeps 2 people!

Nestled in an orchard on a working Exmoor farm in the beautiful Porlock Vale lies Orchard Escapes Exmoor. Set on the National Trust’s 12,000-acre Holnicote Estate, Orchard Escapes Exmoor offers you a true glamping experience – a chance to immerse yourself the delights of nature, toast marshmallows on an open fire, dine alfresco, soak in a wood fired hot tub yet have the luxury of a comfortable bed & a private heated shower room.
