Swanage Shepherd Huts

Traditional shepherd huts in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck

We now have two original late 19th century shepherds huts available for hire. Billy Wix can sleep 2 adults and Laughing Betsy can take up to 3 people. Both shepherd huts look out across Swanage with sea views, and are set in their own small gardens.

Laughing Betsy is the dark green one set in its own garden with sea views. It has electricity, electric kettle and heater useful in the cooler months. It has a double bed.

Billy Wix is the teal coloured hut. It has 2 single beds which can be made into a double bed. Plus a single bunk bed. It is off grid with LED lights.

Both huts are fully equipped with kitchen and eating equipment. A small single ring camp stove. The huts are perfect for a quiet, cosy, rustic retreat and have inspired several writers and musicians.

The huts fees are £75-£100 a night depending on season and occupancy. Fees do not include linen or towels.

Please contact us for current fees.

Dogs are welcome (fee).
