Dimpsey Hither Hut

Sleeps 2 En suite Kitchen Wood-Fired Hot Tub


In a nutshell…

We want staying in the hut to feel like a luxury hotel, so we’ve tried to go the extra mile to make it really comfortable for you, ensuring that all the styling is from British designers and adding in extra little treats to delight you.

The hut is 18 feet long and contains a double bed, seating, kitchen area and a bathroom with shower and flushing toilet.

Dimpsey Slumber Space
In our opinion, there’s nothing worse than having to make a bed every day, so our double bed pulls down out of the wall fully made with luxury British bed linen and cosy blankets. You can either leave it down and use the sofa bench seat to lounge on during the day…or tuck it away again when you’re ready.

Dimpsey Dining
The Dimpsey Hither hut has a hand-built oak table and sheepskin-covered bench seats to seat up to 4 people. We also have a lovely long day bed which makes for comfy magazine reading, or just gazing out at the view across the hills. Our fairy lights and board games, make for cosy evenings – with a log burner for you to light on a really cold day.
We have a gas hob, fridge and small belfast sink within the hut and we supply a starter pack of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Outside the shepherd’s hut we have an oak covered outdoor kitchen area, complete with a wood-fired garden oven, plus outdoor washing-up area with Belfast sink with hot & cold taps.

All essential utensils and crockery are provided – there’s a list in the Welcome Pack.

We can also provide meals upon request and have also provided Places to Eat recommendations on the site.

Dimpsey Romance – Wood-fired log burners and hot-tubs…
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.
Outside the Dimpsey shepherd’s hut, we have a wood-fired hot-tub for your exclusive use – perfect for soaking in whilst gazing up at the stars. We show you how to use the wood-fired hot-tub when you arrive and believe us, you’ll love it!
Dimpsey Showers and more
There is a lovely bathroom hidden away behind the double doors at the end of the hut. We provide towels, a hair dryer and a starter selection of luxury shower treats. There’s plenty of room in the shower and there is also a granite washbasin and flushing toilet (no compost loos!).


Private Entrance

Both of our huts have separate entrances as well as being over two fields apart so you can be assured that you have all the privacy you need.


You have your own private parking area just by the shepherd hut.

Fold-Down Wall Bed

The Hither Hut comes with a fold-down wall bed (double) which can be easily lifted to unveil a seating area and table, and brought down when you are ready for your slumber.

Wood-fired Hot Tub

Our Hither Hot Tub is tucked away with fairy lights and candles to ensure the most relaxing of experiences.

Dimpsey Extras

We’ve tried to think of some extra bits and pieces that will be useful, like a lovely little flask and enamel mugs to take with you, as well as a local map, if you go walking, We also have a vintage picnic basket – for which we can provide sandwiches and treats for if you let us know in advance.


We style the hut with things that we think you will enjoy, so the contents do change now and then. We do this so that you have lovely and unique items to enjoy while you’re here – and we can also say, hand-on-heart that we don’t use anything that we haven’t tried ourselves. If you do fall in love with something, let us know as we can source you similar items.

  • If you book to come and stay with us, we will do our very best to make sure that you have a great time.
  • If you want something and we can help, we will. If you have any problems, we will do our best to solve them.
