Our second time visiting here and as our first we felt very welcomed. Having stayed in the gypsy wagon last time we came back to see the sheppards huts and we were not disappointed.

We had a lovely peaceful stay in Broad Lodge. Caroline and her family are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. It was lovely to wake up and have a coffee overlooking the Dorset hills, listening to the chickens clucking outside (no cockerel so no early morning wake up), the odd cow mooing in the field next door and that...
