    “Quiet peaceful location.”

    Perfect base to go off exploring Dorset wildlife. Hut is well presented, with all components to a high standard. It is quirky & we enjoyed that. Thoughtful touches by owners eg: tea/coffee & condiments, with small amount of local provisions to buy.

The property

Spindleberry Hut is a lovely Shepherds hut located on the outskirts of the sleepy village of Piddletrenthide, Dorset, not far from Dorchester.

This charming home invites a couple looking for their next romantic getaway to the heart of rural Dorset, boasting off-road parking, a welcoming, studio-style living area, and a magnificent, countryside setting situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Park up, unpack your things, and settle into your gorgeous new home.

Prepare a special dinner for two in the well-appointed kitchenette, then relax with your meal at the dining room table or even outside on the deck as you take in your serene new surroundings.

Before treating yourself to a restorative shower or a soak in the outdoor Bath and a well-earned rest in the lovely king-sized bed , enjoy a glass of your favourite vintage as you can toast your holiday.

If you can manage to drag yourself away from your tranquil new lodgings, venture outside to discover what your local area has to offer.

Make your way to Cerne Abbas where you can fill up on all the supplies you need at the ‘Cerne Abbas Stores’.

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.

Book a stay at Spindleberry Hut for the ultimate romantic getaway to Dorset.

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.

Please note - Check in and check out days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday only.
