General

Looking for a hideaway where you can simply switch off and unwind in nature? The Burrow ticks all the boxes for a restorative getaway. Nestled in a peaceful meadow on a working farm, this charming hut is a complete tonic for the soul. Off-grid and powered by solar, The Burrow is the optimum of an eco-friendly hideaway and there's even the opportunity to join in on outdoor summer yoga sessions in the owners stunning garden (speak direct to book).

Arriving to this little slice of heaven is like something out of a story book. The views of the rolling Wiltshire countryside and lush woodland areas, instantly make you feel at ease in your pocket-sized, home from home. Step inside and admire the soft blue and white hues mixed with warm woody tones creating the most welcoming ambience. To the right of the hut is the super cosy king-sized bed adorned in luxury linens and an array of pretty scatter cushions and blankets, ensuring the most relaxing night's sleep. There's plenty of storage within the hut to pack your weekend bag away so you can make the most of the space. The drop-down table is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee upon or idyllic for a romantic evening meal. The hut's kitchen is well-equipped with everything you should need for your glamping getaway, including a double ring gas hob and fridge with ice compartment. One of the best features of the hideaway has to be the wonderful wood-burner. On slow mornings, light the fire and snuggle up in bed with your book or get cosy by the flickering flames after a wild winters walk and scrumptious pub lunch. To the left of the hut, you will find the stylish shower room with a composting toilet.

Step out onto the deck and sink into the comfy outdoor sofa. Light the fire pit and enjoy watching the sky transform into a pastel pallet of soft summer hues. There is ample space outside to dine alfresco during the summer months and the deck is also the perfect spot for sunrise morning yoga or meditation.

Out and About

Tucked away on the Hampshire/ Wiltshire border the location of The Burrow is truly amazing. There are a range of fantastic walks right on the hut's doorstep. The farm is set within the Clarendon Way and Monarch's Way walking routes, so you really do not have to go far for some beautiful countryside rambles, just make sure not to forget your walking boots! For nature lovers Broughton Down and Bentley Woods are close by and the New Forest National Park is just a short drive away. The shepherd's hut is near to the post card pretty towns of Stockbridge and Romsey. And for a spot of retail therapy The Burrow is only a 20-30minute drive from the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester.

Extra Information

Little Buckholt Farm has been in the owner's family since the fifties. The land is still worked by the family, so on the odd occasion you may hear the tractor chugging in a nearby field or firewood being split in the yard. This shouldn't cause any disturbance to your time in nature, but will simply enhance the beauty of your authentic farm setting.

Please note that access to the hut is via an unmade track from the road to the parking area. There is parking available next to the hut which can be used in dry weather. However, you will have to drive through fields to get here so it may not be suitable for all vehicles. There is an alternative parking area behind the owners' house which is also in a field. If parking in this area, you will then have access to use a golf buggy to ride up to the hut (one of our favourite features).
