Remember when we went glamping in a shepherd's hut in the middle of a llama field… in December… in the coldest UK winter for 20 odd years? It was a decision that had my coworkers and family completely baffled but nearly 2 years on, and it’s still one of the most memorable getaways we have ever had. The pipes froze so we had no hot water, we had to use a storm kettle to heat the water, llamas spat and farted at us, there was no electricity and we spent 3 days sliding in the mud. Doesn’t sound like bliss but it was cozy, quiet and an unbelievably fun weekend. If you are tempted to join the madness (perhaps in summer, like a normal person), check out The Shepherd’s Hut Retreat in South Somerset. I loved the look of it so much that I have bookmarked the site for our next trip to the UK.
