A pub set in glorious isolation with view of Glastonbury Tor and music on Fridays

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 and Hockney prints. Actually a converted dairy farm (this is Somerset after all), accommodation comes in the guise of 3 rooms above the pub. The modestly-sized rooms are artfully decorated with paisley-style wallpaper and music and film themed pictures and posters – the best room is the one with the reclaimed vintage telephone doors and copper bath, while another offers unencumbered views of Glastonbury Tor from 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 continental breakfast served in your room.

Whilst here it’d be remiss not to sample the pub’s awesome food – perhaps a bowl of Sheppey fish stew out on the waterside terrace – and if you’re staying on a Friday, expect to hear some top draw live music. A fun weekend bolthole if ever there was one.
