trendy new restaurants opening up all over the place, fantastic markets and beautiful parks we are spoiled for things to do. Every now and again though it all gets a bit too much and some time out of town can do us all a world of good. Fancy a break that's slightly different from the rest?
Head to the Shepherds Huts Retreat in Somerset. Two and a half hours drive from London and you'll find your own little hut waiting for you. Inside you'll find a cosy setup with a double bed, kitchen, bathroom, games and DVDs. Outside there's a lovely lake with ducks a plenty and your very own little garden with BBQ and a fire pit. You won't want for anything and the complementary marshmallows for toasting on the fire are the icing on the cake.
From Shepherds Huts you're perfectly placed to get down to the stunning Dorset coast. We ate fresh seafood at the world-famous Hive Cafe in Burton Bradstock, walked the coastal path 8 miles from Bridport to Charmouth and treated ourselves to clotted cream ice creams in Lyme Regis.
So, if you feel like you need some clean country air and downtime, get yourselves down to Shepherds Huts. I couldn't recommend them enough.
