Barkhill Shepherd's Huts: Complimentary bottle of wine

General

  • Adults-only shepherd's hut site in the Blackmore Vale
  • A 15-minute drive to Hambledon Hill; 25 minutes to Shaftesbury
  • Firepit and gas or charcoal barbecue provided; walk to a village pub

What a spot Barkhill Shepherd’s Huts has, in four acres of paddock and surrounded by open Dorset farmland. That’s not to mention the far-reaching views towards Hambledon Hill, Compton Abbas and King Alfred's Tower.

This shepherd’s hut site has a seating area in the adjoining paddock, which is just the place to catch sunset. Inside the hut, there’s a logburner to keep the place toasty and a handy ensuite shower, toilet and basin. Kitchen facilities are also internal and they include a small gas hob, fridge and a cluster of kitchen utensils.

The outside space is pretty ace too. You’ll be set to soak up plenty of fresh country air around the open firepit, gas or charcoal barbecue and firewood facilities provided. There’s a seating area by the firepit and barbecue so you can get settled for any alfresco meals.

If you feel like eating out instead, just roll on over to Sturminster Newton (five minutes’ drive), which has a few pubs and eateries. The village of Okeford Fitzpaine also has a pub, which is just half an hour’s walk away.
