Peaceful rural location with far reaching views over rolling countryside on a family beef/sheep farm. A great place to relax, unwind and switch off in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Set in a peaceful rural location on our family run beef/sheep farm the Shepherd's Hut has far reaching views over rolling countryside. The cosy Shepherd's Hut offers a chance to get away from it all, switch off, relax and be a one with nature. The Hut is far enough apart for complete privacy but close enough if two couples wish to holiday together

Wake to bird song, the occasional sheep bleat or a cow moo, drift off to an owl hoot or fox bark in the wood below.   Amazing sunsets and some wonderful star lit skies.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the farm and to meet the animals.  Lambing time is popular when guests, if they want, can watch a birth (lambing mid April to end of May).  We have  beef cattle and sheep out around the field in the summer, a working collie dog, farm cats and a horse.

Large 5' x 6'6" beds, table and chairs, under bed store, dresser, electric heater and wood burning stove. We supply wood for the wood burning stoves and fire pits if required. Also electric heating and power in the huts.  The kitchen has fridge, kettle, microwave, cooking rings, table and chairs. Clean drinking water and loads of hot water.

North Buckham Farm is an ideal base for walking either around the farm area or down on the coast, riding available at two locatins nearby or bring your own horse and enjoy the off farm riding (one stable available, turn out for two).  Great location for photography, star gazing, painting, writing (start that novel now!)  The coast is 20 minures away to West Bay harbour 35 minutes to Lyme Regis.  Fossil hunting and fishing are both popular.

Farmhouse kitchen breakfast available.

Open April to the end of October
