Glamping in Dorset

Dorset Forest Garden Shepherd’s huts

Based in the middle of beautiful Thomas Hardy country, the stunning far-reaching views from the huts are similar to the views Hardy would have been inspired by whilst writing his novels back in the 19th century. Back then farmers would have stayed in shepherd’s huts intended as a home away from home on the hills grazed by their sheep. They were cosy, warm and equipped so the shepherd could cook and sleep in relative comfort.
We love huts! They are so full of character, evoking the time from whence they came. Their curved roofs mimic the beautiful rolling countryside around us, but today ours are more about glamping than lambing!Part of our philosophy is to live lightly upon the planet, so there is no mains electricity, just traditional hurricane lamps, and cooking is by wood fire!However Dorset Forest Garden Shepherd’s Huts do have many nods to the 21st century when it comes to luxuries. You sleep under a king size feather duvet on a sprung mattress, and there’s no need to go outside at night as your private ensuite has drinkable water, flushing loo and a hot shower!The huts are well equipped and include some essential goodies.
