General

  • Relax and unwind in style
  • Uninterrupted views over the stunning rolling hills of Dorset
  • Be cosy with the log burning stove and wake up to a beautiful sunrise

The shepherd's hut is set in an 11-acre field with uninterrupted views over the rolling hills of the Dorset countryside.

Judy and Ray run Wynards Farm with the help of their daughter Annabel and her partner Lee. Guests will be greeted warmly by the attentive family and shown to their hut. They also offer maps and literature and they will reveal the local secrets of routes and nearby attractions.

Most guests enjoy the privacy of having their own space so you can be left to your own devices and just leave the key in the door when you leave. Although there is usually someone around if needed. Sometimes the family can offer lifts to the pub or beach if needed.

The shepherd's hut is set in Wynards Farm, a smallholding which also offers a breakfast hamper tailored to your taste and budget with locally sourced foods and homemade marmalade and jams (charges apply). Breakfast can be delivered to the hut or you can have it in the main house.

There is parking close by to the shepherd's hut although you can park outside to unload. There is space for storing bikes, laundry facilities and you are free to walk around the garden. They are footpaths and bridle paths that leave straight from the property.

Fabulous shepherd's hut with everything you could possibly need. 09/09/2016

    We had a wonderful time at Wynard's Farm. The hut was perfect, we loved the fact that the toilet and shower were right next door. The interior is immaculate, comfy bed...nice little kitchen and a beautiful setting. The fire pit is great....really warming. The yurt is quite close by....probably good for 2 couples or a small family to rent together. All in all a great short break at a really good price.
