About this property

With its very own wood-fired hot tub, The Acorn is an idyllic glamping hideaway for two, nestled in the Dorset countryside with views over the rolling hills and out to sea.

Handmade and bespoke in design, this beautiful oak shepherds hut is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Step inside to the large open-plan living space. Here you will find a cosy bedroom area at one end with a double bed, and a fully equipped kitchenette with a dining area at the other. With a double electric hob and oven/microwave, this little space has everything you need to cook up a storm after a days exploring. Through a door is an en-suite with a WC, wash basin and shower. Outside is a wonderful lawned area with a wood-fired hot tub. Sit back and relax by the firepit with a glass of wine and take in the vast landscape, or watch as the stars come out in the evening.

With views to the sea and plenty of local walks, the location is hard to beat. The Jurassic Coast is on your doorstep so it is easy to spend time exploring the coastal path and visiting the pretty towns and villages with their boutique shops and coastal restaurants and pubs.

Please note there is another hut on the farm, Honey Bee.

Additional Information:

    We had a lovely weekend break at the Acorn, despite it being super windy! The hot tub was lush, and it was great to have it hot and ready on arrival. There is a clear conscious effort to reduce waste using Ecoliving/plastic free products which was great to see.
