Paddock View Shepherd’s Hut is set within the grounds of our natural small holding, a unique and beautiful semi-rural location near Alderholt, Dorset where we grow fresh vegetables. It is the perfect place to escape into nature, a peaceful retreat where you can sit on the veranda and watch the sun go down enjoying your favourite tipple.
Paddock View is warm and cosy in the winter, cool and airy in the summer with the luxury of a built-in shower room. Its porch area provides a great place to relax in the summer heat.
As well as a double bed, there is a small dining table with two chairs, a kitchen area with an electric hob, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and sink as well as all the utensils, cutlery crockery, glasses, and pans that you will need.
Your well-behaved dog and/or horse are welcome to enjoy the experience with you. There is a paddock available for your horse to graze and plenty of riding from the field.
The barns are right on the border with Hampshire and near the New Forest, ideal for boxing out for probably the best open riding spaces in the UK.
Meet Amos the ram, Jet the horse as well as Syke the dog, a Husky with stunning blue eyes. You could also see a couple of geese wandering around with sheep and goats nearby. Kitty cat lives in the barns and often stops by to say hello.
Available for short breaks, weekly retreats or longer stays.
Paddock View sleeps two adults but friends or family can bring their own tents and camp in the paddock for a small charge. Please enquire. Separate shower and toilet facility available.
Guests can drive into the yard and park next to Paddock View. Keys can be accessed via the code sent to you for the key safe nearby.
