We have two gorgeous shepherds huts, Mabel and Sam. Please click on either below to view.
SILAS THE SILO
Welcome to Silas, the born again Grain Silo. Silas started life as a humble grain silo at Gourd’s Farm, just a hop, skip and a jump away from his new abode here at The Old Forge.
With a passion for all things galvanised, I couldn’t help but notice that this particular silo appeared to be in retirement on the farm. The cogs started turning in my mind to come up with a new lease of life for him; an observatory? a bar? a new Glamping unit?
Silas spent rather too long sitting without purpose at the top of our field until being winched into position for his transformation to evolve. A gradual process ensued, inspired by the miscellany that I wanted to upcycle.
What we have created is a beautifully simple and intimate seating area making the most of the panorama that surrounds it. Silas will give you shelter from the elements and has four removable shutters to cope with all prevailing weathers. He can be used as a BBQ or fire pit.
Fire up Lotte our Dutch wood fired hot tub reminiscent of your favourite Le Creuset casserole dish in 70’s orange. Think comfort food and hunker down for the most serine soak gazing across the wildflower meadow to the Dorset Downs.
TUCK SHOP AND KITCHEN
Tip toe across the stepping stones to the Tuck Shop if you are feeling peckish and weigh out a quarter of Rhubarb and Custard sweeties! Inside the Glamping kitchen, open up the cupboards and you will find all the essentials (plates, cups, pans etc) for cooking and dining as well as a fridge, freezer and cooker.
We welcome well behaved dogs in Sam and Mabel. Dogs are extra, at £25 per stay. Please let us know in advance, and please be aware we have onsite horses, a donkey, dogs and a cat! Our only rule is no dogs on the furniture, and please bring your own bowls and bedding etc.
There is space for two children from £15 per child per night, please bring own tent to pitch alongside either Sam or Mabel.
Booking for Mabel and Sam is only available via phone or email. Please contact us for availability.
Sam and Mabel are both situated in the same field, they are ideal for couples or friends wanting to holiday together.
They are priced from £175 per night for two huts, four people with the use of the hot tub. Please contact us for bookings.
