The second shepherd's hut, just behind, features a large walk in shower, wood burner, toilet and sink with washing up facilities.

Enjoy picnics from the outdoor bench, and make use of the fire pit whilst watching the sunset, enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

Nestled in the beautiful Frome Valley, the surrounding region is filled with stunning walks and trails, and on your return stop off at a local pub for a pint and some grub.

There's also a good selection of shops including a well-stocked local village store for grabbing the essentials, along with a convenient train station for access to Weymouth, Yeovil or Bath.

Head to the excitement of Dorchester, where you can wander the traditional high street and pop in and out of well-established retailers and coffee shops or explore the local attractions such as the Dinosaur Museum or Dorset County Museum featuring a fantastic display of Roman artefacts all found locally.

When you fancy a beach day, head to expanses of Chesil Beach, regarded as one of the most remarkable beaches in the country.

The Jurassic coast road will provide you with some fantastic views.

Weymouth beach is a sandy, family friendly, beach with plenty to entertain the whole family.

Head further afield and explore Bridport and West Bay, the home of Broadchurch.
