Dorset Glamping Holidays – Shepherds Huts

Shepherds Huts are our latest addition to South Lytchett Manor, expanding our offering of unique glamping holidays in Dorset. Our quintessential Shepherd Huts offer comfort from the height of summer right through to cosy winter festivities. With under-floor heating and handcrafted by our very own staff onsite, they feature a full size double and two single beds, perfect for two adults and two children. to make an exciting base on their Dorset holiday. There’s also a TV and DVD player, refrigerator, coffee machine, toaster, two ring electric hob, hob kettle, LED lighting and sockets with USB points.

A Dorset and British Affair

South Lytchett Manor loves to support local businesses, which is why the materials were sourced as close to Dorset as possible. The traditional cast iron wheels were hand poured by Bridport Foundry and the windows were fitted by a Dorsetonian. Timber was sourced from businesses in Poole and all electrical items were supplied by YESS Electricals in Poole. Frame materials were shipped from Wrexham and the 100% sheep wool lining is from Birmingham. They were then handcrafted onsite by us and finished off with a lick of the spectacular local Farrow and Ball paint!

We will be delighted to welcome you to Dorset and South Lytchett Manor and personally introduce you to your Shepherd Hut stay; after all, it was made by our own hands! As our guests, you will have complete access to our award winning five star-rated amenities and facilities onsite, including our new modern, heated family bathrooms. The eco-friendly children’s adventure playground, football and badminton nets as well as an indoor games room mean that new friends are easy to find whilst you stay with us here at South Lytchett Manor.

In high and shoulder season, our onsite bakery springs into action for freshly baked pastries and bread. It’s joined by our new quirky Coffee Pod which produces barista level coffee, tea, hot chocolate, iced lattes and some limited edition breakfast options during the summer holidays.

These bespoke Shepherd Huts are a picture-perfect compliment to Dorset’s historical roots. They seamlessly blend modern amenities with close access to Bournemouth and Poole, so you can enjoy a peaceful holiday in the natural beauty of the Dorset Countryside. Think of the memories and book your Shepherd Hut escape online today and create those one of a kind experiences on your Dorset Glamping Holiday!

Happy Campers ツ

We were lucky enough to be the first to stay in their new Shepherds Huts. It was such a wonderful couple of nights. They have underfloor heating and an excellent little kitchenette. It was the perfect getaway. We stayed with our dog, who also had a wonderful time. They have an off lead area on the site and Upton Country Park is just a few minutes away and offers loads of space to walk dogs. The staff on the site were so friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be back!

J Dixon-Box, Jan 2020

Very well maintained site, friendly staff, good size pitches and very clean facilities. Great location for exploring.
