Secreted away in rural isolation at the heart of the magical Somerset Levels, you wouldn’t give this distinctly unprepossessing roadside pub a second glance. But step inside, and any preconceptions are immediately dispelled – The Sheppey is fun and funky, from the cool-as-a-cucumber bar to the retro furnishings.

Actually a converted dairy farm (this is Somerset after all), accommodation comes in the guise of three rooms above the pub. The modestly-sized spaces are artfully decorated with paisley-style wallpaper plus music and film-themed pictures and posters – the best room is the one with the reclaimed vintage telephone doors and copper bath, while another boasts a balcony perched above the river, albeit with drinkers supping away below. Bathrooms, meanwhile, come with freestanding tubs and jumbo-sized rain showers, plus organic toiletries and fresh flowers thrown in for good measure. Included is a breakfast consisting of organic local cereals, yoghurt and fruits served in your room.

While here, it’d be remiss not to sample the pub’s awesome food. The menu is suitably eclectic – they don't do boring here at The Sheppey – with everything from Sri Lankan curry and beer-battered jackfruit, to a cracking Sunday roast. What's more, there's a fine selection of local Somerset craft beers on offer, like the Amber Ale from the Gert Lush microbrewery just down the road. It's the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of The Sheppey's signature fish stew – snag a spot on the riverside terrace to complete the experience. 

Given the proximity to Glastonbury, it'll come as no surprise that The Sheppey has a bumper calendar of live music and DJ nights. The first Friday of every month is Soul Shack, so polish your kicks and bring your talc for spins on the dancefloor. If the soothing sounds of nature is more your music, there's a cluster of tranquil nature reserves in easy reach – Westhay Moor, Avalon Marshes and RSPB Ham Wall to name a few. The iconic Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Well are also about 15 minutes away by car.
