Mabel and Sam sit comfortably in the meadow, each sleep two, let together. Restored to their former glory the huts have been transformed with vintage quilts, enamel signs and wood burning stoves. Both huts have verandas where you can raise your binoculars before the sun sets to watch the buzzards soaring and tune into the sound of Scrumpy Jack the donkey and his friends munching buttercups and daisies.

The space
Sit on the recycled veranda bedstead and raise your binoculars before the sun sets to watch the buzzards soaring then snuggle up by the Caledonian Dumpy and immerse yourself in the stories of a Shepherds life.

Make your way out to the composting loo and freecycled shower by Bluebell, the Morris Minor Pick Up. Fire up the recycled washing machine drum and sizzle your sausages by the light of the silvery moon...

Tip toe across the stepping stones to the Tuck Shop if you are feeling peckish and weigh out a quarter of Rhubarb and Custard! Inside the Glamping kitchen, open up the cupboards and you will find all the essentials (plates, cups, pans etc) for cooking and dining as well as a fridge, freezer and cooker.

Guest access
Guests will have access to all facilities as a group/family. You will only be sharing with the horses, donkey and chickens!

Other things to note
Dogs are extra, at £25 per stay. Please let us know in advance, and please be aware that we have on site chickens (fenced off), donkey, horses, dogs and a cat! Our only rule is no dogs on the furniture, and please bring your own bowls and bedding etc.

We have been living at The Old Forge for 28 years! Over this time the place has been lovingly restored to it's former splendour as a former Wheelwrights and Forge. We are both passionate collectors of all things vintage and retro, vintage cars, tractors, Shepherds huts, and a Gypsy caravan are all part of our collection! Our four children all follow in this family tradition! We have two beautiful Arab horses (mother & daughter) and a famous donkey, Scrumpy Jack! Also our two labradoodles Pudding & Pie, westie Bonnie and not forgetting the free strutting hens that provide our scrumptious eggs! We love gardening, cooking, walking & riding and pottering around the Dorset lanes in our 1934 Lagonda.
