In a nutshell…
Our newest addition, an opulent shepherd hut stay space offering kitchen, en-suite lounge area and a star ceiling bedroom with outdoor copper bath, pizza oven and secluded location.
The gorgeously styled interior provides perfect comfort, ideal for escaping from the busy and finally getting some quality time together. Dimpsey is renowned for providing private luxury stay places and this new addition is perfectly & privately set in its own field with the expanse of sky outside providing perfect stargazing opportunities.
Starting from £225 per night, this truly is the place to relax and recharge.
Dimpsey has always been known for high-end luxury in a field and with our third addition to the Dimpsey experience, we wanted to step it up again and create something that totally immerses you in time together and perfect comfort.
Our vision for this project was ‘opulent wild’ – a totally opulent luxury interior, but maintaining the wildness of the outdoors and as always ensuring that you have your own private field, well away from anyone else.
Nestled at the back of a wild field, Dapple is a double shepherd hut, one of Blackdown Shepherd Huts luxurious Brace Huts, with a wide decking outside totally connecting you to the outdoors.
The front shepherd hut is 18 feet long with the second shepherd hut being a 16 foot long shepherd hut and connected by an interior walkway.
In the front hut, you have a stable door looking out on the glorious Blackdown Hills. This shepherd hut houses the kitchen, bench and table with a stargazer roof over, lots of comfy lounge seating and views out of every window.
The rear hut (we like to call it the celestial boudoir!) is a beautifully appointed bedroom, with a built-in bed from Naturalmat and a starlit LED ceiling – lay in bed and dream you are galaxies away.
A single door leads out onto the decking, which leads round to your decadent outdoor copper bathing platform.
Dimpsey Slumber Space
The feedback on our Naturalmat bed in the Dimpsey Hither Hut we have been running since 2015 has been so good, that they have become our mattress makers of choice. Lay in your bed and gaze at the LED stars above and then snooze away to your hearts content.
With Owen Barry sheepskins and Tom Raffield lighting setting the mood for you, we think you’ll be relaxed to the max in your celestial boudoir.
Opposite your bed, you’ll find a wardrobe and a generously sized en-suite shower room.
A Blackdown table and benches make an excellent area for the two of you to dine in, play games or just simply sit and watch the stars overhead through the stargazer ceiling panel.
If you’re venturing out you have the award winning Candlelight Inn, just a mile away, serving superb food.
We have an electric hob, fridge and small belfast sink within the hut – and we supply a starter pack of tea, coffee and sugar.
The kitchen is a real treat and is perfect for couples dining in.
All essential utensils and crockery are provided – there’s a list in the Welcome Pack.
We can also provide food to cook on the firepit upon request and have also provided Places to Eat recommendations on the site.
Our Dimpsey Dapple hut is set in a private space with only the fields and animals for company, the doors lead directly out onto the decking where you will find seating, and our copper bath, such a hit with all our guests.
The Dimpsey Welcome Tea Tray
The Dimpsey welcome tea tray will be waiting for you on arrival with a little sweet treat for you – there’s nothing better than a cuppa when you arrive!
Dimpsey Romance – Wood-fired log burners
There’s nothing better than a real fire so inside the Dimpsey hut there is a wood burning stove with a constant supply of wood to keep you toasty and warm – we don’t charge extra for this – it’s included in the price. You also have a radiator.
Dimpsey Showers and more
