Steam and Stars

Steam and Stars

Samford Brett, Taunton, Somerset, TA4 4LH

Steam & Stars is the home of Willow, a luxury shepherd’s hut and Hazel, a charming vintage caravan. They sit in beautiful countryside with stunning Quantock Hills and West Somerset Railway views. Being close to the Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve area on a clear night, the sky is magnificent!

Whether you are wrapped in a blanket around a fire pit or soaking in Willow’s wood-fired hot tub, Steam & Stars is a perfect place to stargaze from all year round.


Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks. If you visit and find that the location is not dark sky friendly please let us know!
