Both of our huts sit nestled within beautiful Dorset farmland, offering a peaceful and tranquil escape.

The two huts are spaced approximately 25 metres apart and are separated by wattle screening which is decorated with solar lighting and seasonal planting. You are then left with your own private outdoor space in front of the hut to relax in the sunshine, cook on the barbeque, and chat around the campfire, all whilst taking in the far reaching views.

We provide firewood for the open firepit, and a gas or charcoal BBQ is also available to meet your alfresco dining needs.

There’s seating available to you as well so you can while away your evenings with a good book or just spend some quality time together by the campfire.

Inside the huts the double bed is freshly made up with cotton sheets, pillows and a duvet with extra blankets provided if need be. The little log burner will keep you warm before having a warm shower where towels, shampoo, shower gel, and hand wash are all provided.

Kitchen facilities include a small gas hob, fridge, sink, and  must-have kitchen utensils, and crockery, with all guests treated to ground coffee, tea, herbal tea, a pint of milk, and a bottle of wine to enjoy during your stay.

To keep you entertained whilst inside, we also supply a radio, Bluetooth speaker, and a box of games  and a pair of binoculars so you can keep an eye on the local wildlife, including hares, deer, hedgehogs, owls, bats, kestrels, and sparrow hawks.
