The slightly larger of our two distinguished drovers’ huts, Quercus is a sumptuous oak cabin with a stunning handcrafted four-poster bed at its heart. With room to bring two small children with you, it has a barbecue and firepit for relaxed summer evenings and a wood burning stove to keep you cosy in winter.
In designing the interior of Quercus, former Sibyl Colefax and John Fowler designer Sophie Stonor has thought of everything, from the beautifully finished kitchen – complete with Nespresso machine and pull-out Fisher & Paykel dishwasher – to the delightful ensuite bathroom with handmade crackle-glaze tiled shower and piping hot high-pressure showers. You’ll even find a Dyson hairdryer in the hang-cupboard.
Quercus has been hand built with the utmost craftsmanship in Dorset and on site at Stonor by Plankbridge, the makers of Britain’s finest shepherd huts. Each is a work of art made entirely from scratch under the guidance of master hut maker Richard Lee, who trained at John Makepeace’s college.
