Our newly refurbished shepherds hut is situated in our 4 acre meadow shared with our small herd of sheep in the beautiful North Dorset countryside. The village of Fontmell Magna is in a conservation area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Hut faces over the lake with glorious, uninterrupted views over the Fontmell Downs.
The Hut is quaint but offers a luxurious glamping opportunity with all the mod cons.
Suitable for 2 adults and suitable all year round.

The space
The hut has just been renovated to provide a sumptuous glamping experience with a king size bed, an Emma mattress and Egyptian cotton sheets and big comfy cushions. Glamping never felt so good!

The hut is complete with a kitchen area with a kettle, fridge-freezer, gas hob and an indoor dining area that looks out towards that incredible view. In true luxury glamping style, a fully fitted shower room is attached with a sink and flushable toilet!

Our shepherds hut breaks are perfect all year round with instant heating and air-conditioning.

Outside features a raised decking area with outdoor table and chairs to enjoy your BBQ cooked breakfast. In the evenings cosy up under the blankets in front of the wood burner, toast some marshmallows, grill some steak and enjoy your favourite tipple under the Dorset stars.

Guest access
Guest are free to use the space immediately around the hut and freely use the field, however please take care as livestock are often grazing. Please be responsible for ensuring that the gate is closed at all times.

Other things to note
The shower room is located at the rear of the hut, which requires you to walk out of the hut down and around the back of the hut. There is sensor lighting underneath the hut to illuminate the way in the dark.
