We were delighted to acquire the original hut from the film ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ earlier this year, delivered by our lovely friends over at Blackdown Shepherd Huts. The hut can be seen in the first five minutes of the film with the beautiful Carey Mulligan sitting on the stairs and then the hut is also shown in a few other scenes too.
The Dimpsey Hut has become a real destination for couples looking for a secluded luxury getaway – and the hut from one of the greatest love stories ever, seemed like a great addition to us. Plus you can imagine the excitement here when it arrived, especially as Carey Mulligan has signed the hut!
We are going to keep the hut interior as it was on the film – which is a real contrast to the full mod cons of the Dimpsey Hut. We have a walled garden here and our intention is to put the hut in there and use it for writer’s escapes and also as a bookable add-on to the Dimpsey Hut, for an evening’s entertainment – but more on that soon… 😉
In the meantime – anyone booking the Dimpsey Hut gets an exclusive look inside the Far From the Madding Crowd hut and we can serve one our our homemade and tasty pre-booked afternoon teas in there if required.
So with all that going on we thought what better way to get the Far From The Madding Crowd theme going than with a competition!
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with YOUR ideas of what YOU would do with the hut from Far From The Madding Crowd. We will pick the best one and announce it on our Facebook page on Monday 7th September 2015. The winner will receive a Far From The Madding Crowd DVD!
