Dotted around the parameter of their own field, the position of each hut has been chosen to give guests maximum opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside and little else.
Once grassland for grazing livestock, the ‘hut field’ is now a hay meadow harvested only once a year, giving wildlife (and guests!) the best chance to flourish.
The hut field and allocated car park are easily found half way down our private drive, approximately 300 metres from the farmhouse.
We don't allow cars in the hut field except on arrival & departure for ease of loading & unloading your vehicle, however during wet weather this might not be possible to avoid getting your wheels stuck in the mud! From the car park you have a short walk across the grassy field to your hut, therefore appropriate footwear is necessary, along with a torch for after dark!
What should I expect from my hut?
All four huts were built to our bespoke design in the North of England by the team at The Yorkshire Hut Company, who have been handcrafting Shepherds Huts for over a decade.
Despite their tiny footprint, each Hut has been designed with its occupants comfort first & foremost – you’ll be amazed by what we’ve fit inside!
Electricity, hot running water, ensuite with towels and luxurious products from The White Company; double sized beds with crisp white linen; dining table and chairs, miniature wood burning stove, gas oven & hobs, dinky (and completely silent) fridge, well equipped kitchen... It’s easy to forget you’re ‘camping’ at all! Outside each hut has its own table & chairs and campfire with tripod grill.
On arrival guests will find a welcome hamper in their hut, which includes all the essentials for a hearty first breakfast: Coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, muesli, bread, butter, marmalade, bacon & eggs.
Available 365 days a year, whatever the weather
With wood burning stove, electric heater, double glazed windows, electric blanket, hot water bottles & walls insulated with sheeps wool, our huts can withstand the coldest temperatures, gale force winds & lashing rain. We've made a great deal of effort to ensure our huts can be enjoyed all year round, although you cant beat throwing open the windows & doors on sunny summer days, it's equally as joyful on the coldest winter days when your miniature hobbit stove is roaring!
So sorry, no dogs allowed...
...due to the size and location of our huts, we regret we cannot allow guests to bring their four-legged friends with them to stay at Westfield.
We are proud of our magnificent dark skies here in rural Northumberland and encourage our guests outside at night to enjoy them. Each Hut has its own annual ‘guide to the night sky’ to help you identify what’s above you. Apart from the (minimal) outdoor lights on the verandas of our huts, the hut field isn’t lit up by artificial light at all, enabling you to get the very best from our dark skies, therefore please bring a torch to navigate your way across the field after nightfall.
