The Full Story

About Us...

Hi, we are Camilla & Leon and we live on a serene and secluded smallholding slap bang in the middle of the beautiful Somerset Levels.

 

Having taken a blind leap of faith and given up life as we knew it (mainly indoors, mainly muck-free), we moved here in 2016 with a view to producing as much of our own food as we could. We wanted to raise our own animals for meat, to ensure that we could give them the best possible life, and to make sure that their final journey was as stress-free as we could make it. Keeping hens and ducks for eggs was a given, as was the hope that if we found somewhere with an orchard, we could continue to make our own cider.

We discovered Marsh Farm and moved in with absolutely no smallholding experience whatsoever - we hadn’t even kept a chicken between us. Within nine months we had somehow accumulated hens, duck, sheep, pigs and two of our neighbour's cattle. After a fun few years we decided to get rid of our small herd of Devon Ruby cows and free up the land for our next adventure - luxury Somerset glamping! 

This year we are delighted to see our dream realised with the opening of our first shepherd hut offering a sustainable and eco-friendly glamping experience in Somerset, and the perfect romantic escape. 

We still feel incredibly lucky to have found the Farm - it truly is a secluded, peaceful oasis in an often overly hectic, busy world, and we feel even luckier to be able to share a slice of it with our guests. Our shepherd hut is set in our furthest field, offering solitude and privacy, but within walking distance of the local pub, farm shop and cafe. It offers everything you could want from an off-grid luxury experience from an en suite flushing loo to king size bed. 

We now produce our own native breed lamb, hogget, mutton and pork, our own eggs, jams, pickles, preserves and orchard apple juice, all of which goes into our hampers or may be available as extras on site.

Oh, and we no longer make our own cider. Why? Because we discovered hedgerow wine instead! 

So if you’re looking to explore the South West or simply kick back and unwind with nature, then our shepherd hut holiday could be the perfect rural escape you’ve been looking for! 

We look forward to welcoming you to Marsh Farm.
