The cottage has two twin bedrooms and one double (with an ensuite) as well as a family bathroom, which makes it suitable for six people. The cottage also has a first floor, open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburning stove.

Close to the Jurassic Coast and set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, ShepherdÂ’s Hut is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of the country.


A beautiful Dorset Holiday Base
We travelled as a group of 4 adults and 2 young children (plus dog). Shepherds Hut is a beautiful conversion and the pictures dont do it justice. We have stayed at other similar properties in the past and this is definately up there with the best of them. Just looking at the guest book entries over the past 5 years shows 99.9% of guests LOVE it. The property is brilliantly equipped, we didnt find the electric heaters an issue (as implied in an earlier review) and its rural location suited us for the peace and quiet. It was strangley therapeutic watching the sheep from the upstairs feature window and there were plenty of walks around the wider farm grounds for the dog and kids. Yes there was the occasional "fruity" smell outside depending on the direction of the wind and we quickly learnt not to open the kitchen window for flies (who seemed to take shelter in that particular window frame) but it is a working farm!! Wifi and phone reception is very poor but again we took this as the price of having such a beautiful and peaceful location. It was a great base for our day trips. Monkey World, Weymouth, Poole, Swanage and Corfe Castle within an easy 20 minute drive. Before travelling i was slightly nervous that there were no recent reviews, and with a couple of the previous reviews, but i neednt have worried. Would thoroughly recommend.

There was a wow factor from the moment you walk up the stairs and see what a fantastic view there is of the countryside. We loved the fact that we were in the middle of a busy working farm, and often woke up in the morning with sheep surrounding our garden. We all loved chilling out in the beautiful garden that was very pet friendly and secure. We've already booked to stay there this Christmas. We highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

This was a first class holiday cottage in a brilliant location and the accommodation was superb. We couldn't fault it and would like to return. Many thanks.

We had a wonderful week in a glorious setting. Very high standard of accommodation with attention to detail exceptional. We would certainly highly recommend this cosy, warm converted barn to anyone and everyone. We have stayed at various cottages in the UK but this is top of the list. We will certainly return.
Mr Holley

A stunning barn which was extremely clean with a beautiful garden. There were lots of cutlery & kitchen utensils, towels etc. Our dogs loved being able to go for walks straight out the front door & the garden was so well fenced that there was no danger of them getting out. Definitely recommend & will be back again as soon as we can get some more leave.
