Shepherd's Huts in Northumberland
The Shepherd's Huts
Dotted around the perimeter of their own field, the location of each shepherd's hut has been chosen to give guests maximum opportunity to enjoy the surrounding countryside.
Once grassland for grazing livestock, the ‘hut field’ is now a hay meadow harvested once a year, giving wildlife (and guests!) the best chance to flourish.
The shepherd's hut field and allocated car park are easily found half way down our private drive, approximately 300 metres from the farmhouse.
What should I expect from my shepherd's hut?
All four shepherd's 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, en-suite loo and shower with towels and luxurious products from Bramley Products; 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 shepherd's hut has its own private wood fired hot tub, table & chairs and campfire with tripod grill.
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 shepherd's 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 hobbit stove is roaring!
We are proud of our magnificent dark skies here in rural Northumberland and encourage our guests outside at night to enjoy them. Each shepherd's 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.
