The tranquil setting of Horders farm is situated in the heart of Thomas Hardy country at the foot of the Melbury Downs. Our accommodation is based on the traditional design of a shepherd's hut but has been adapted to provide contemporary spacious living and cooking facilities. We are a small family run livestock farm with animal welfare and sustainability at our core. At the beginning of your stay we will bring you a breakfast hamper brimming with farm and local products. Enjoy Jonathan's sausages and bacon and Lucy's homemade baguettes or sourdough.

The hut has been designed, built and decorated by ourselves and incorporates luxurious linens, towels and cushions. The essentials are stocked like fresh coffee, tea, sugar and olive oil, washing liquids as well as locally produced natural soaps and moisturisers.The hot water and shower are solar powered and the toilet an ecologically friendly separating toilet, both situated next to the hut. Hot and cold running water is available in the kitchen area and cooking can be enjoyed on a very efficient wood burning stove.
New for this season we have installed a solar panel to the roof, this charges the batteries and provides power to the lighting system and the iPod dock. All the internal lights can be operated from the main switch or switched locally.

If nature is not enough then there are many locally based exciting opportunities.
Breadmaking courses held at the famous flour mill next door, yoga courses at Fontmell Magna, the Larmer Tree music festiva takes place in July, Salisbury arts festival, Shaftesbury food festival.
