    “Such a lovely peaceful place to stay small but everthing you could need.”

    The outdoor fully functional bath tub was excellent a lovely hot soak whilst star gazing.

The property

Hurdlemakers Hut is a charming traditional style Shepherds hut situated on a working farm located close to Dorchester on the fringes of the charming village of Piddletrenthide. This beautiful Shepherd's hut invites a couple looking for their next romantic getaway to the heart of rural Dorset. It boasts onsite parking all set within a gorgeous, countryside setting and located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Inside, make yourself at home in your new dwelling by preparing a delicious lunch for two in the well-appointed kitchenette, before enjoying your meal at the dining table or outside on the balcony as you take in your wonderful new surroundings. Raise a glass of your preferred beverage, as you toast your holiday before you retire for a revitalising shower or a soak in the Outdoor Bathtub, before retiring to the plush king-sized bed for a well-earned rest. If you can manage to drag yourself away from your homely base, head outside and discover what your local surroundings have to offer. While visiting Cerne Abbas, explore the mysterious Cerne Giant, a National Trust landmark. There are plenty of spectacular walks direct from your doorstep, and the Dorset Gap is just one of the must-see places on your list. The County town of Dorchester is just 6 miles away, with many shops, cafes and the Dorset Museum. If the coast is what you are seeking, then just 30 minutes drive away is the Jurassic Coast with Weymouth's sandy beaches, and just a little further is the Isle of Purbeck with its breathtaking coastline.

Remember to stop by the famous Durdle Door or visit Lulworth Cove. A visit to the World Heritage Jurassic coast where you can explore Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove is a must.

About the location


Dorchester 8 miles.

The pretty West Dorset village of Piddletrenthide can be found in the quaintly named Piddle Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only 8 miles from Dorchester, situated off the main road on a private track. The village is surrounded by glorious countryside, with direct access to public footpaths abounding in superb walks. Interestingly the young Thomas Hardy, as an architect's assistant, worked on the parish church. A great base for touring, there is much to see and do within a short drive of this picturesque area, including the world-famous Cerne Abbas giant, where you can find the nearest shop for the essentials, whilst the bustling market town of Dorchester, with its array of interesting shops, pubs, restaurants and museums is well worth a visit. Within easy reach is the family friendly seaside resort of Weymouth and the Jurassic coast, and also dramatic Portland, venue for the 2012 Olympic sailing events. With Bournemouth and Poole only 40 minutes away, this is altogether a super holiday destination at any time of the year.
