Colber Farm, Sturminster Newton, Dorset
Dog Friendly, Stunning Location, Hot Tub
For sustainable luxury in the heart of Thomas Hardy country, book a stay at Farmstead Glamping. Nestled on the Hannam family’s idyllic working dairy farm, the retreat offers artisan shepherds’ huts and a one-of-a-kind barn conversion.
Both en suite huts – The Happy Hare and The Pleasant Pheasant – are heated to perfection by small wood burners and boast marvellous green views. Make the most of their well equipped kitchen dressers or soak away your stresses in their own private wood-burning hot tubs. Meanwhile, The Heron is a wildly romantic, tiny barn that has been immaculately outfitted with a king-sized bed, a movie projector and its very own outdoor copper bateau bath. All three properties are completely off-grid and powered by their own solar array, meaning you can enjoy your weekend away smug in the knowledge that you’ll be doing so in near carbon neutrality!
Maverick tip: Between May and September a small bell tent can be hired alongside The Pleasant Pheasant to sleep adventurous children (£35 / night). A blow-up mattress, bed linen and towels are all provided.
