Shepherd’s Hut, Dorset

Shepherd’s Hut is set on a working dairy farm a mile south-west from Winterborne Whitechurch, Dorset.

What was once a brick and flint period barn has been converted into an attractive holiday cottage, combining the original countryside character with modern decor.

The property has an upside-down layout; upstairs is a gorgeous open plan living area which, being elevated, enjoys a lovely view through the floor to ceiling windows. Exposed beams of timber span the room and create a homely sensation along with a working woodburning stove and plush seating.

In the daytime, light floods in and makes for a unique place to relax. All three of the ground-floor bedrooms are tastefully furnished, spacious, and cosy.
An ensuite bathroom is included in the king-size double.

Shepherd’s Hut is nearby to the Jurassic Coast, providing an awe-inspiring backdrop to your strolls by the sea with a four-legged friend. Blandford Forum is closer yet and the Georgian market town is well worth a visit. Bounemouth is easily reached by car and is full of dog-friendly places to eat, drink, and play.

A stay in Shepherd’s Hut will have you flocking back in no time.
