Skimbleshanks The Railway Hut

Skimbleshanks is a self-contained shepherd’s hut for two, based next to Dunster Railway Station.

It has a luxurious double bed, en-suite shower room, kitchenette and log burner. Outside facilities include designated parking, outdoor seating, bbq and fire pit.

Uniquely situated next to the West Somerset Railway at Dunster Station, you have an enviable view of the steam trains as they pull into the station. In the other direction, uninterrupted views across the fields to Dunster Castle and Conygar Tower.

You have sole access to the shepherd’s hut and the grounds immediately surrounding it. You also have shared access to some other parts of our garden.

Please be advised that steam trains are NOT quiet. Trains usually run between April and January, calling at the station twice an hour and they sound the whistle every time. The daily timetable usually operates between approx. 9am and 6pm. Whilst we love the trains and many other people do, if this is not up your street then, please consider this before booking.
