COVID 19 - All facilities-exclusive use for guests
Traditionally constructed Shepherds Hut in the heart of Dorset in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Set in its own small meadow with far reaching country views.
The Shepherds hut is on its own with no other guests and has the exclusive use of a modern kitchen, shower and toilet. BBQ and free fuel available.
Ideally located for exploring the beautiful Dorset villages, towns and countryside as well as for walking and cycling.

The space
Peace and tranquillity in the heart of 'Thomas Hardy' country. Traditional shepherds hut accommodation made to an old traditional design, yet equipped with mod cons, including electricity with USB chargers. A real wood burner is provided (along with free logs) which makes for a very cosy atmosphere when nights are a bit chilly, especially in the early spring and late autumn.
The kitchen is situated in a separate garden room and equipped with a fridge, with separate freezer compartment, a microwave, electric cooker, toaster, kettle etc. Although the accommodation is self catering some breakfast essentials are provided including tea and coffee, cereal, eggs, bread. butter spread and jam.
Hand and bath towels provided. Bed linen is provided.
There is just one Shepherds Hut at the site situated on its own, in a small meadow. The Kitchen+shower and WC facilities are for the sole use of the occupants and are not shared. From the photographs you will see that it is within very close proximity to the Shepherds Hut.

Guest access
The shepherds hut is situated in its own small meadow which is part of five acres of land which includes the property of the host. Guest are free to walk around the five acre grounds (excluding owners private garden).

Other things to note
We are open between Easter and the end of October.

Outside of Easter and peak summer periods, midweek breaks of more than 3 days are available at attractive pricing as is a stay for a full week. Please enquire.

As we are in the middle of the countryside there is no wifi or broadband connection. However, we are able to receive a 4G signal, so if you have a mobile or tablet, subject to who your service provider is, you should be able to get a signal, but obviously we cannot guarantee this. Perhaps just get away from it all and switch off devices and enjoy the peace of the countryside! Listen to the skylarks instead! We have a family of great spotted woodpeckers that regularly feed, green woodpeckers, bats in the wood shed and buzzards.
