Dither in Dorset
Our Shepherds Huts are in the village of Marnhull, which is located in the Blackmore Vale in North Dorset. There are two pubs, The Crown Inn and The Blackmore Vale Inn, both of which are approximately a 20 minute walk away. There is Robin Hill Village Shop with Post Office and Hawtree & Sons Spar.
Our local Udder Farm Shop is only a few minutes drive and has a selection of local food and a welcoming cafe. Dike & Son in Stalbridge is our nearest supermarket selling a selection of local produce and a huge variety of Gin!
A public footpath crosses our field and the River Stour is nearby, perfect for picnics! Duncliffe Hill & Woods can be seen from the Hut. Many walks and cycle paths can be accessed from the hut to entice you to explore the beautiful countryside here in Dorset.
Travelling further afield we are situated near the picturesque towns of Shaftesbury and Sherborne and only an hours drive from the Jurassic Coast and Sandbanks.
If you cross the nearby border into Wiltshire, Stourhead House & Gardens and Longleat are worth visiting. Frome in Somerset is also a favourite especially for Catherine Hill and the Artisan Market. Bath and Bradford on Avon are also beautiful places to visit within an hours drive.
But to truly switch off, just relax in the Huts and enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding area.
