“A little piece of heaven away from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Len’s hut is a little piece of heaven. It feels completely isolated from the mad (real) world of rushing about, deadlines, pressures and tasks, but comes with the added bonus of a luxurious set up. The bed is incredibly comfortable, you don’t need to leave the hut to use a bathroom, there is hot and cold running water, a decent shower and loo, the kitchen is well equipped – on our first visit we cooked full meals in here, using the oven and hob. There’s even wi-fi, a TV and DVD player and DAB radio, so you can choose to keep up with civilisation as much as you want to. There is a log burner for when it’s chilly outside, which will keep you warm and toasty (there’s a radiator too if you don’t enjoy such romanticisms, but we do!) Now there’s also a fire pit outside, which is where we cooked every night of our second visit, drank heavenly local cider and toasted marshmallows. When we came home we managed to source our own, similar, trough to try to recapture this in our own garden!

In fact, Len’s hut isn’t isolated at all, it’s a brief walk from the very friendly owners’ farmhouse, they’re approachable if you need anything but otherwise you might only see them occasionally to say hello, you’ll certainly be left to enjoy the peace and quiet of the hut. It’s also a walk away from some lovely places to eat and a short drive from a whole heap of Somerset towns and villages to explore, like Cheddar, Frome and Wells, or drive down to the coast or over to Bath.

I should really have reviewed Len’s hut after our first visit in May 2014, I was remiss in not doing so, life speeds along quickly once you leave Len and re-enter the real world, but we’ve been again in August 2015 and hope to go back again in 2015 to try the hot tub that Phil and Amanda are adding to the hut. If you want a break from rushing about and a bolt hole in the middle of beautiful countryside, just for two, I highly recommend trying Len’s hut.

“Tranquil retreat”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Silent get-away especially suited for good weather to take advantage of the outdoor fire space. The hut itself is beautifully presented with attention to detail, and allows for some self-catering.
The surrounding area is calming, with far stretching views of countryside. It does require a car for reaching surrounding areas, but there is some space for parking behind the hut.

“Peaceful, Serene and Every Little Thing Thought Of...A Truly Magical Experience”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Len's Hut was everything I had hoped for and so much, much more. I took a very deep breath on arrival, slept like a baby and have returned home after two nights away feeling like I've had a much longer holiday. This kind of total relaxation is a rare find.
Phil endlessly patient with my changing travel arrangements when booking, and everything I needed to find the hut and plan for my trip was quickly provided.
Phil and Amanda have thought of absolutely everything you could need - squirrelled away in drawers and cupboards, this was half the delight, opening a drawer to another little surprise. The welcoming card and little treats to enjoy were a very lovely touch.
There was a selection of DVDs, in a case, but most of the time I wanted to enjoy the sound of nature and birdsong surrounding me. You can cook a good breakfast on the stove, there is a little fridge to keep your milk and cider cool, and plenty of good places to eat nearby. Hartly's Kitchen is less than 2 miles away and does a great breakfast. A truly magical experience I hope to repeat again soon.

“just perfect”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I booked Len's Hut as a suprise weekend away for my husband, I initially saw an advertisement for Len's in the Times and fell in love with the idea. Well I wasn't disappointed, it was perfect. Amanda and Phil have thought of everything, so much has been packed into such a compact space, had so much fun finding things. Really didn't want to go out, my husband is always up first usually between 5 and 6 am, not here, he was so relaxed and cosy he slept in, even with the whistling kettle! The wood burning stove is amazing, we were so cosy, great shower and having a loo en suite bliss. Produced super meals on the baby belling, just have to buy only what you need for that day as fridge is small but had taken a cool box for the cider! Really recommend, glamping in style.

“A real Somerset GEM”
Reviewed 20 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

After spending the day in bath we finally arrived at our accommodation for the next two nights. The hut was everything we were hoping as we'd planned to have food and relax with the log fire burning. The hut is just so quaint and well located with stunning views and complete silence not a noise in sight. The hut is very well designed and the space used very effectively, with traditional features of the hut coupled with all the mod con''s to make the stay perfect. We really couldn't fault the stay in any way shape or form and will certainly return at some point in the future. The owners also recommended 'The Mendip Inn' which we ate at the one night which I have to say was one of the best Lamb meals I've ever had.

Overall the accommodation is a must visit and all contact with the owners was very a pleasant experience. Highly recommended if your looking for a peace free relaxing quaint break in the countryside.
