Kingsized Bed

All our huts have a kingsized bed – important for a good night’s sleep! In the Novelist there is oodles of space allowing the bed to face onto the bath and the views beyond leaving room either side of the bed with star-gazing roof-light set in the ceiling

Asset 266


As you may expect all bed linen and towels are provided.

Asset 305

TV and WiFi

Whereas our other huts are about getting away from connectivity this hut has both WiFi and TV. Whether you are on vacation or workation this hut offers flexibility. There is a comfortable chesterfield to chill out on in the evening.

If you wish to remain disconnected, when switched off the TV blends into the background as a mirror!

hot tub icon

Wood-fired Hot Tub

All our huts have their own private hot tubs included in the price.
The hot tub is very private positioned right beside the Novelist’s deck so you can step down into the hot tub. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a starry night! If we know your arrival time we will try our best to get it warming before you arrival

Outdoor Shower

If a shower is more your thing there is an outdoor rainfall shower on the deck. It is very private – but with fantastic views!

Asset 260

Arrival Hampers

Visit our hamper page – any hampers ordered before your arrival will be waiting for you.

Asset 278


In the hut is a drinks menu containing drinks from our local breweries and distilleries. We can bring orders to your hut during your stay. This includes our own hut special cocktails and own labelled wines!

Asset 308

Expansive views

We are fortunate to enjoy stunning views down a long valley all the way to Eggardon Iron Age fort. With not so much as a hamlet visible this makes for some wonderful scenery. As in the Astronomer, above the bed is a panoramic star gazing window so the views are also upwards!

Asset 294


We are surrounded by a fabulous network of footpaths and bridleways – we supply a walking map. For chill out days there is a range of books and games to enjoy beside the woodburner. Private outdoor seating area on a wooden deck supported by traditional staddle stones, with a fire pit and a store of wood for your use during your stay.
A locally made wood-burning stove with a stock of kiln dried wood and firelighters for chilly mornings.

Available to Book from July

The Novelist is  a very special double hut comprising a bedroom hut complete with copper roll-top bath, plus a larger hut with kitchen, living space and TV.  This will be more spacious, suitable for longer stays, workations and vacations!

Built to suit our very specific location it is designed to make the most of our expansive views, and based around a spacious wooden deck making it very private and relaxing.  

The 2 shepherd’s huts are joined in a T through a glass walk way.  From the luxury copper bath made by William Holland of Dorchester  in the bedroom hut, you can soak in the best of our views – the window has been specially lowered to allow our guests to do this.  In the living hut you can fling open the French doors and enjoy the best of the views from the sofa, or – at night – the mirror on the wall becomes a TV!

The gorgeously styled interior is very spacious for a romantic getaway for two – and with wi-fi connection it allows for the laptop to come too.  Like the Astronomer hut, there is a panoramic window over the bed for star gazing.  There is an outside shower and wood fired hot tub
