The Artisan has been positioned to enjoy the breathtaking views across traditional countryside right in the heart of West Dorsetwhilst having complete peace and privacy. Like the traditional huts it still has a small woodburner inside, however you’ll also find a few luxuries that would not have been enjoyed by the shepherds of yesteryear. It is beautifully decorated with some lovingly restored furniture and vintage fittings. You snuggle up in a proper king size sprung bed with a feather duvet and pillows.  There’s fresh running water, a hot shower and a flushing toilet all in the shepherd’s hut.  For cooking, the hut contains all the kitchen utensils and necessities – including marshmallows to toast over your fire pit or in the communal BBQ hut. The Shepherd’s huts are well insulated making them a wonderful way to do outdoor living all year round and have everything you need for an idyllic stay.

You can spend your days exploring the countryside, heading to the seaside on the Jurassic coast, or take time cooking on an open campfire and allowing time to drift by under a shady tree.  Beaminster (just 2 miles from the hut) has a restaurant in the Sunday Times top 100.

If the weather’s not so sunny you can retreat to our BBQ hut – eating around the BBQ whilst soaking up the view. Or you can chill out in your shepherd’s hut with a lit woodburner and a brew. This makes for a quiet and relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

NOTE: Hot tub is an additional charge.

About Dorset Forest Garden

Beautifully finished shepherd’s hut in a 1½-acre forest garden, each with their own private hot tub and quiet, secluded space

Far from the Madding Crowd - Dorset Forest Garden Glamping offers characterful vintage shepherd's hut glamping.  Set amongst fruit trees in a food forest, Dorset Forest Garden is in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the heart of rural West Dorset. Both huts have their own private hot tub.

Located close to the Jurassic coast, the two huts have stunning views across Hardy's countryside.

Inside each hut, there is a kingsize bed with sprung mattress and feather duvet, a private ensuite with flushing loo and a hot shower. The Shepherd's Huts also contain a wood burner to keep the hut cosy (complete with a supply of wood), china and cutlery, plus a range of camp cooking equipment for cooking outside or in the BBQ hut. Bed linen for two, washing up liquid and starter essentials for the kitchen including coffee, tea, sugar, and marshmallows for toasting are provided.

For cooking - in front of each shepherd's hut is a fire pit with all the equipment you need to cook a good meal. As well as this, there is a BBQ hut in the forest garden to make cooking fun whatever the weather.  A fridge freezer and electrical points are also available in the BBQ hut.
