Hut-next-the-Sea is a beautiful shepherd’s hut nestled in a corner of the Blue Skies Campsite at Wells. It has a cosy wood burner, deliciously comfy bed, en suite shower & WC and kitchenette, all with vintage -style touches. The hut is an ideal romantic getaway and has its own drive, private parking and a pretty garden.
The rural location gives you a wonderful sense of space. Birds and butterflies thrive in the wooded dell, including the resident cuckoo.
Sitting at the table inside, you’ll see the trees silhouetted against the sunset as you eat an evening meal. In the sunny garden you can spread the day’s newspapers out on the picnic bench, topping up coffee from the cafetiere. Deck chairs are provided for basking in the sun.
From the plants in the garden to the stylish crockery, everything is designed to create a pretty environment for you to relax in, with nearly every comfort you'd expect in a normal self-catering property (NB limited cooking facilities, no central heating).
Sleeping: The bed is deliciously comfortable and inviting. Pocket sprung double bed with Cath Kidston duvet cover and hotel-quality sheets and pillows. Storage for your clothes include baskets under the bed, a bespoke ottoman, lots of hooks and hangers.

A 12v charger with various adapters is provided so you can power your mobile etc. There is mains water, but when the campsite is full, the water pressure can run low during busy periods, affecting the consistency of the hot water supply.
Additional wood, gas canisters and charcoal are for sale on-site or in nearby shops.
