Gorgeous New Forest Glamping with Breakfast hamper included. This impeccable Shepherd’s Hut sits within the owner's beautiful garden, where summer flowers are grown for arrangements. Within walking distance is a thatched pub and a farm shop selling picnic treats and local produce as well as offering bicycle hire if you want to make the most of this glorious countryside. All perfectly perched at the edge of the New Forest.
Dolly is a quality hand-crafted Hut and equally lovingly furnished, making this a truly quality glamping break in the New Forest. Martine's hospitality cannot go without a mention either - prepare to be spoiled a little - A Continental breakfast basket will be brought down to "Dolly" containing freshly baked pastries (croissants and pain au chocolat), yoghurts, fresh seasonal fruit and choice of cereals, including orange juice. Also available is a freshly baked baguette with bacon.

The hut's fresh decor with vintage radio, wicker chairs and a mini Welsh Dresser create a Doll’s-house charm, rather like an extremely well-appointed Wendy House!
However, practicalities have not been sacrificed for looks. A king-size bed, quality mattress and fresh linens assure a comfortable night’s sleep, and an immaculate integral en-suite means no grass-hopping to use the shower or loo! As expected, fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries are also provided.
There is a kettle and provisions for tea and coffee making, as well as a fridge in a mini kitchen unit for snacks and drinks to stay fresh. The Hut also has Wifi.
Dolly is tucked away in a mini-plot surrounded by a picket fence, rose arch and cherry tree (which was in full blossom the day we visited - stunning). Drinks and snacks can be enjoyed on the private patio right outside the Hut.
For special surprises and occasions, Champagne, flowers, chocolates, bouquets, floral arrangements, balloons and messages can be arranged directly with Martine.
Hampshire: Ringwood has a Wednesday market and a wonderful range of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Fordingbridge is also 3 miles away with the famous and recently refurbished George Inn right on the river – the food is well recommended. Further afield are Bournemouth (with evening candle-lit gardens), Southbourne, Mudeford with beaches (perfect for walkers and cyclists), and Poole, Christchurch and Salisbury.
The New Forest is right on the doorstep, with fantastic cycling, walks and picnic spots. 'New Forest Water Park' has paddle-boarding and kayaking or just enjoy the view from its lakeside Club House over a drink and lunch. The New Forest Wildlife Park at Ashurst has deer, otters and a magical butterfly enclosure! Burly is a quaint little town with tearooms and quirky gift shops, pubs, a cider farm and if you want to step back in time there are pony and carriage rides.
