This cabin might be the UK’s chicest countryside escape. The Bide, in England’s rolling Dorset hills, was created by two designers who needed somewhere to run away to during lockdown. It’s all been built almost entirely with locally, sustainably sourced materials – right down to the stylish, recycled denim mattress. And best of all? You can book it out for your own private getaway whenever city life is getting too much.
The cabin is clad in brick-red, eco-friendly wood – making it properly gorgeous to look at – and the interiors are pretty stunning, too. Inside, you’ll find a minimalist, pastel-blue kitchen, a super-king-size bed, a mid-century hanging lamp and a matte black shower that apparently uses less water than your standard set-up.
Looking for stuff to do? The Bide has its own curated Spotify playlist, a hand-picked library of Dorset-inspired books, a wood-fired hot tub and a home cinema, so you can watch an arty film via the hut’s Mubi account.
And then there’s the location. The cabin is on a working farm, so you can expect cows as neighbours – and no humans for miles. Like the sound of that? Fancy properly getting away from it all? Find out how to book the cabin here.
