Impressive Environmentally Friendly Sites

***Any day arrival - Min 2 nights stay***


Sitting at the top of a 65-acre nature reserve in Dorset, with views over the gently rolling landscape, Angels Hut exudes a sense of calm and tranquillity. The hut is furnished with all the amenities you need for a romantic break including an enclosed garden and hand-made wood-burning hot-tub - the perfect place to soak up the wild sounds and scents, and the glorious views over the valley.


The owners are currently in the midst of a rewilding project to help restore the farmland to its former natural splendour. Prepare yourself for an eco-friendly escape amongst the flourishing fauna, with a lovely mix of livestock and native wildlife. Guests are invited to enjoy this tranquil paradise at their own pleasure while also being respectful to the landscape. Please be careful not to leave any waste behind, which could influence the project.  

 

The stylish hut, designed and built by owner Jonathan, incorporates traditional designs to create a spacious and functional interior with a lovely mix of contemporary features and retro charm. Inside find everything you need for a self-catering escape including a wood-burning stove with cooking facilities, a comfy bed, and a hot gas shower in the adjoining bathroom. 

 

Spend your days sitting between the meadow and the trees relaxing with a good book or take a stroll to one of the local vineyards across the valley. In the evenings, huddle around the large outdoor fire, toasting marshmallows in the pristine country air, watching the moon and stars twinkle overhead. The romantic site is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and offers all the calmness and serenity you could ever wish to find.

 

Guests can also treat themselves to delicious home-cooked stews, which are available on request. Speak to the lovely owners on arrival to arrange an evening meal.

Right behind the hut is a separate cabin with a smart composting loo, hot and cold running water, washbasin and shower. Towels and locally made toiletries are provided.

 

Outside, there is a fire-pit and seating, plus a glorious wood-burning hot-tub to enjoy the magical setting.

The raised decked area is a great spot for relaxing and making the most of the sweeping views across the leafy grounds. Sit back and watch the world go by, which around here simply means an assortment of birds and bees fluttering past with the occasional whistling cry of a buzzard in the sky.

 

New this year is a fabulous wood-fired hot tub, designed and built by Jonathan, which offers a relaxed 2 person occupancy or a cosy fit for 4. Not too far away a designated fire-pit is perfect for some magical moments sat amongst the starry sky and dancing flames of the fire.

 

The Shepherd's Hut is tucked away in a private spot by a small wooded area, well away from other dwellings. The 65 Acre Farm is a family run business with animal welfare and sustainability at its core.

 

The Local Area:

Dorset offers a whole range of lovely country walks and beautiful cycle routes. Head up to Bulbarrow Hill for some magical views across as many as seven different counties on a clear day.

For the nearest town, head down to the historical market town of Shaftesbury, home to cobbled streets and the renowned Gold Hill (made famous by the "Hovis" advert).
