The Shepherds hut is situated in its own woodland and is off grid. You will be able to take in the beautiful night sky and fall asleep to the tranquil sound of the stream trickling by and our owls twit twooing after a day of walking the coast line and visiting the RSPB at Arne . It has its own small log/coal burner to make it nice and cosy and there is a lovely comfy double bed to relax on. You will also hear the night time noises of our woodland friends -the foxes barking and the deer rutting.

The space
There is no wifi or electricity at the shepherds hut. This is your time away from your devices. The lighting is by lanterns powered by battery. So bring a good torch and some easy to slip on foot wear e.g. flip flops. If the weather forecast is inclement then waterproof foot gear is a good idea eg wellies. Come as if you are camping bringing your bedding (pillows, duvets & bottom sheet or sleeping bag) and wash things including towel. If you are cycling or coming by train or if you would just like us to provide you with bedding then we can happily do this for a small charge. There is a shower and loo in the downstairs of our house with independent access . This is about 100 yards away from the hut through a gate. We very much appreciate it if you can leave the hut as you find it by sweeping it out, clearing the ash from the fire and depositing your rubbish in the appropriately labelled bins by the shower room.

We supply the first bucket of coal and kindling for you free of charge if you require any further buckets then there is a small charge of £5.

Guest access
The Shepherds hut is located in the woodland. You have access to the downstairs loo and shower in our family home and woodland walks.

Other things to note
Our family home is 100 yards from the Shepherds Hut and we make every effort to allow you peace and conduct family life, so there will be the occasional woof from our lovely dog when they are alarmed by badgers, foxes or deer who are busy at night. Our woods are also home to owls. We write this as often people believe mistakenly that the countryside is silent.

If you are holidaying with friends then you might also be interested in our listing "Purbeck Woodland apartment" which sleeps 5 at the main house. We hope that you appreciate that we have to operate a no dogs and no smoking policy for the safety of our farm woodland and livestock.
