Frequenty Asked Questions

Is there internet access?
Wi-Fi is not available from the Shepherd Hut - but that is the point. Switch off them gadgets and do something else for a while. If you need a Wi-Fi session then wander down the drive to be closer to the main property and you will be able to pickup a couple of SSIDs

Give us a really good reason and we may....only may.... provide the password to you!!

What are the possible bedroom configurations?
There is just one room in the Shepherds Hut which is multi-functional. There is a full sized (4'6") double bed with quality mattress and bedding to make you very comfortable and two types of quilt are available depending on the outside temperature - either a summer 10 tog or a winter 13.5 tog.

What is the Breakfast like?
Fresh, local produce. Normally eggs from our own chickens. A wide choice to suit meat lovers or vegetarians alike.

You can order a bacon, sausage or egg bap (or any combination) for your breakfast hamper which will be delivered at a time of your choice between 07:30am and 10:00am

Breakfast is available for self-catering guests with an extra charge.

Is the property and location family friendly?
The Shepherds hut is really for romantic getaways rather than a family get together - but if you wanted to come as a family and pitch a tend outside you would be more than welcome. There is a pond in the vicinity of the hut so little one's would need to be supervised at all times to be safe and secure. 

Is my car going to be safely parked?
There is off road parking for one vehicles dedicated to the hut. The area is particularly safe as far as reported crime is concerned. There is also ample external lighting for the night wanderers and an LED torch is also provided.

What about pets?
Pets are not allowed in the hut (except assistance dogs by arrangement) mainly because many dog breeds love to chase hens and ducks and we have many of those free ranging on the smallholding.

What about smoking?
There is no smoking allowed within the hut or anywhere except by the seating near the pond. Please use the pot of soil under the table at this location for the disposal of cigarette butts.

What payment methods are there?
The following methods of payment are accepted. Cash, BACS (details will be provided) , Cheque (which you will need to allow time to clear).

We will only return a deposit if the booked week/days are able to be re-let - and we promise to always be as fair as possible in this respect. You are therefore advised to take out your own travel insurance to cover you in case you are unable to make your holiday booking for any reason outside of your control.

Shopping for food and eating out?
Castle Cary has a great delicatessens shop, art and craft and local small shops including a Co-operative.Thai restaurant, Chinese, Indian, fish 'n' chips, Kabab/Pizza takeaways all provide a quick fix on "non-cooking" nights!!  Tescos will deliver to the address of the main property but if you prefer a trip to the supermarket then we have Morrisons @ Wincanton, and all the main one's in Yeovil. There are some excellent local pubs serving good food and good beer. If you like cider then "Thatchers Gold" is the product of choice!
