Shepherds had it right: long summer days spent living the simple life, man and nature perfectly in tune. Take a leaf out of their book—minus the pesky sheep to worry about—with a unique break to The Drusilla's Inn Shepherd Huts, amongst the unspoilt serenity of the Dorset landscape.

The huts are buried deep in the countryside near Horton, around 15 miles north of Bournemouth, and a two-night stay in a self-contained hut is just £95 (up to a £165 value). Each hut sleeps two, and provides an enchanting rustic experience with no home comforts compromised, from the king-sized beds, flushing toilets and hot showers, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Breakfast is included each morning at the adjacent Drusilla's Inn, a charming thatched freehouse in the traditional Wessex style. Home-cooked food and real ales are served throughout the day; the perfect victuals for hungry shepherds and shepherdesses.

The best way to take in the natural beauty of the region is with a walk setting off from the property, with a variety of routes available—you could head to see the local landmark Horton Folly Tower, the gorgeous Haythorne Bluebell Wood, or many other rural treats, spotting wildlife as you go. A map is included to help you navigate.

This Escape is for two people, with availability for all seven days of the week.

  • "Iron Age remains, tumbledown abbeys, and medieval towns are dotted all over the Dorset landscape."
