In a nutshell…

This is a really unique shepherd’s hut being built to suit our very specific location.  

Designed to make the most of our expansive views, and based around a spacious wooden deck making it very private and relaxing.  

The Novelist is a double shepherd’s hut 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.

  • There is LED lighting and mains sockets in the Novelist.  A candle lantern is also supplied.

  • Luxurious kingsize bed with star-gazing roof-light set in the ceiling, with bed linen and fluffy towels provided.
  • We are surrounded by a fabulous network of footpaths and bridleways – we supply a walking map.

  • 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.
