Jake’s Cabin is tucked away in one of the most magical secluded locations in Somerset. Waking to birdsong and with views of undulating hillside and meadows, it provides closeness to nature that melts away the strains of busy lives.
Built from local cedar and larch and using only eco friendly and re-cycled materials, this beautifully crafted retreat can be found in a sunny clearing, and protected from the elements by the old oak and hazelnut trees that cast dappled light over its living roof.

The space
Based on our much-loved Gabriel’s Wagon, Jake’s Cabin has more space and an internal door leading to the bathroom that hosts a warm yellow roll top bath with an external door for a bath with a view;
It has a luxuriously comfy day-bed with a v sprung mattress and silky soft bamboo bed linen;
floor to ceiling windows running along its length and sky lights, so that whether from the bath, bed or from the soft sinking cushions of the old Ercol sofa, you can enjoy the views, catch the sunlight and watch the stars..
Jake’s Cabin has running hot and cold water and electricity and is properly equipped with kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery, a baby belling hob and oven, Belfast sink and fridge. The wood-burning stove keeps the cabin in constant warmth, thanks also to its high spec draft proof insulation.

Guest access
The verandah offers a covered area to sit on the beautiful French wrought iron bench for outdoor breakfasts and suppers or to just enjoy the view and its own private garden. Here you can use the fire-pit and fire wok for outdoor cooking.
If you wish for a high look out, or to just sit amongst the tree canopy, at your own risk (!) you can use the ladder to enjoy the living roof of 98% woodland flowers, planted to blur the boundaries of this little cabin with its surroundings and to help whoever is staying to connect with the landscape too.
Even in rain there is something to enjoy watching as the rainwater runs off the woodland roof and down a chain into a water bowl creating a beautiful natural water feature.

Other things to note
Do bring waterproofs and wellies for wet weather, boots for walking and a torch for arrival on dark nights. We provide all basics such as loo paper, washing up liquid, tea towels, bin bags etc; as well as some store cupboard essentials, such as tea, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil and vinegar.

A famous footpath up Creech Hill to the site of a Romano-Celtic temple is just nearby with fields offering fossil finding and ancient woodland to explore. In Jake's Cabin, walks are mapped out for you to enjoy to the local Saxon town of Bruton along drovers lanes to visit Houser & Wirth’s Somerset gallery. For foodies, this town is a delight, with Houser& Wirth’s Roths Bar, At the Chapel and Matts Kitchen to choose from. You can also walk to Cole Manor tea rooms, set on the gentle River Brue, or for a longer walk, make your way along the river at Spargrove, to sit beside the log fire in the 3 Horseshoes pub in Batcombe. A half hour car journey will bring your to the spectacular Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip hills and in the opposite direction, Stourhead, with peaceful lake-side walks, and stunning gardens.
In the summer, there is Glastonbury Festival, just 5 miles away, and the Bath & west showground offering a constant programme of interest from the Royal Bath & West agricultural show, to Antiques and Collectors shows and the famous Sunday Flea Market. (Please check dates)

For a taste of Somerset town life, we are within easy reach of Glastonbury with its quaint shops and impressive Abbey ruins; Wells and its breathtakingly beautiful Cathedral and Frome’s Catherine Hill, fun to visit with quirky buzzy bohemian vintage shops, fantastic cafes and an Artisan Market every last Sunday of the month – all within 10 miles radius. For city life, the magnificent Georgian City of Bath is within 20 miles
