Old Orchard Shepherds Hut

It’s BIG! You think shepherd hut and you might think ‘cosy’….small, bed folded into wall, outside loo! Not this one! Our beautiful brand new shepherd hut includes a king size bed, a dining area, fully fitted kitchen and a luxury ensuite shower room – with a loo!!



And we’ve gone further! We’ve built a bespoke outside lounge with a shepherd hut roof and reclaimed materials throughout, so if it’s raining or you want to enjoy the sunset with glass in hand you can relax in comfort overlooking our old cider apple orchard. Or you could enjoy the same view from your very own electrically heated cedar clad hot tub – perfect!

  • We had the most wonderful stay at the end of our honeymoon. Kate and Mark are the most thoughtful hosts with the kindest gestures. The house itself is beautifully decorated and clean with a beautiful outside area. There are plenty of lovely areas to explore locally. We hope to return soon.
  • This place is a hidden gem! It was absolutely amazing. The hosts are very welcoming and accommodating, there is a good list of things to do and the scenery is beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for more, it is very peaceful and secluded. Will definitely be booking to come back here again
  • Wow! We have been to a few places which we thought were good but the hosts here have thought of everything. We had a really relaxing time and all the extra touches were just most appreciated. Kate & Mark have thought things through well and we didn't want for anything. A truly amazing stay and we will definitely return. Thanks.
  • Mark and Kate are very welcoming and the accommodation is excellent. Clean and well maintained with all the facilities that you need plus the addition of a hot tub for those lazy evenings if staying in. Local area has lots of interesting places to visit from Glastonbury to Lyme Regis and West Bay quite a short drive away with many country pubs in between. Mark and Kate are also happy to share their local knowledge of the area if you're looking for something different. The best recommendation I can give is that we will definitely be making a return visit.
