This extended shepherd’s hut located on the edge of a carp lake, is now a delightful holiday cabin offering a peaceful retreat on the edge of the Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire border. Watch the continuous antics of the varied birdlife visiting the lake from the balcony. Set in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, renowned for its natural beauty, Lakeside Hut provides an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions in the area. Gillingham has a rich history dating back over 1000 years, and has enjoyed mentions in a great deal of literature including the work of Thomas Hardy. Shaftesbury is a small market town in Dorset with a recorded history that goes back to the Anglo Saxon times. You can experience what it was like back in King Alfred’s time, whilst walking round the ruins of the abbey, or just enjoying the history of the area displayed in the Gold Hill Museum. The town is home of Gold Hill, made famous by the ‘Hovis’ advertisement, and has magnificent views over the Blackmore Vale. There is a wide variety of independent shops, pubs and restaurants for tourists to enjoy. This is the ‘Gateway to the South West’, from which you can tour the area from Stonehenge in the east, to Bath and Bristol to the north, and Bournemouth and the Jurassic Coast to the south.
