  • "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.

  • "Enjoyed an idyllic break at Spindleberry Hut for my boyfriend’s birthday."

    We loved the thoughtfulness behind making the hut and its surroundings very relaxing and comfortable. The outdoor bath and the little shed-shop are brilliant. Look forward to returning! Thank you.

    Thank you Rachel for staying in The Spindleberry hut and we will look forward to hosting you again soon. Jane Property Owner

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the quaint village of Piddletrenthide, Dorset, just a short drive from Dorchester, lies this charming shepherd's hut, Spindleberry Hut.

With off-road parking, an inviting, studio-style living space, and a stunning, countryside setting located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this delightful property welcomes a couple seeking their next romantic escape to the heart of rural Dorset.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings.

Whip up a romantic dinner for two in the well-equipped kitchenette, before you enjoy your meal at the dining table, or even alfresco on the outdoor decking whilst you soak in your tranquil new surroundings.

Savour a glass of your favourite vintage in the enclosed garden, where you can make a toast to your holiday before you eventually treat yourself to a rejuvenating shower on your way to a well-earned rest in the inviting king-sized bedroom.

If you can tear yourself away from your peaceful new home, head out to explore what your local surroundings have to offer.

From here, head west to the popular National Trust spot of the Cerne Giant, before you head north to get up close and personal with wildlife at the Badger Watch wildlife park.

If you want to make a day of it, the county town of Dorchester offers eager tourists an opportunity to learn about the settlement’s history at the Dorset Museum, traverse the scenic grounds of the idyllic Borough Gardens, or even spend time learning more about ancient Egypt at The Tutankhamun Exhibition.

For the ultimate romantic getaway to Dorset, make sure you book a stay at Spindleberry 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.

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