Set on a raised grassy area in a former farmyard, Mowbarton Shepherd's Hut shares space with the vineyard store which houses the tractor and other equipment, sited on hard standing tucked away behind the Hut. The Hut has its own secluded paved terrace which looks south over grass, trees and the Somerset Levels. This space has all recently been extensively re-planted and re-seeded and is flourishing with wild flowers and shrubs.
