A homely shepherd's hut at a stoneground flour mill, a stone’s throw from Shaftesbury famed for Gold Hill and that 70s Hovis ad. Overlooking an idyllic millpond, it's a beautiful spot to get comfy by the fire and wile away the time. You might glimpse the kingfisher, a sudden flash of glistening blue or sitting quietly on low-hanging branches. Beyond the hut, enjoy walks over Fontmell Down, follow secluded lanes & ancient tracks, explore prehistoric sites & timeless villages or head to the coast.

The shepherds hut was warm and cozy and beautifully decorated. It’s in a lovely rural location with a delicious breakfast included but be prepared to have a short grassy walk to loo and hot shower

A great little space that was perfect for a sunny day/evening. Nice and secluded and very cosy. Breakfast was a real highlight: all lovely produce - much of it homemade. Croissants were brilliant!
