  • "We had such a wonderful stay."

    Nothing was too much trouble. Jane and Shaun went above and beyond with the finishing touches and we could not have asked for more. The setting was just as we had hoped it would be, so beautiful and peaceful. Would not hesitate to stay again.

    Thank you Susan, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the lovely village of Piddletrenthide, Dorset, just a short distance from Dorchester, lies this delightful, shepherd's hut, Hurdlemakers Hut.

Boasting off-road parking, an inviting, studio-style living area, and a gorgeous, countryside setting situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming property welcomes a couple looking for their next romantic escape to the heart of rural Dorset.

Park up and unpack before you make yourself at home in your peaceful new dwelling.

Cook up a romantic meal for two in the well-equipped kitchenette, before you enjoy your feast at the dining table, or perhaps alfresco on the outdoor decking whilst you soak in your idyllic new surroundings.

Savour a glass of your favourite tipple in the enclosed garden, raising a toast to your holiday, before you retreat for a refreshing shower on your way to a well-earned sleep in the plush king-sized bedroom.

If you can tear yourself away from your sumptuous new lodgings, head out to explore what your local area has to offer.

Take the short car journey west to the National Trust landmark of the Cerne Giant, to snap photos of the mysterious attraction, before you head north to spend time at the Badger Watch wildlife park.

For a day out, a visit to Dorchester offers visitors a chance to brush up on local history at the Dorset Museum, roam the scenic grounds of the Borough Gardens, or even learn more about ancient Egypt at The Tutankhamun Exhibition.

For an unforgettable romantic escape to the wonderful county of Dorset, look no further than a stay at Hurdlemakers Hut.

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.

Note - Check in days are Monday , Wednesday and Friday.
