This charming, hand-crafted shepherd’s hut is perfect for couples looking for a cosy getaway with the best of both coastal and country living right on your doorstep. Explore historic buildings along the Northumberland Heritage Coast, discover picturesque seaside towns and spend your days exploring some of the region’s stunning beaches.
With open countryside all around you, this delightful hut comes with romance and fun by the bucketload. Climb three steps and enter the welcoming open-plan living space where wood plays centre stage, and there's even a cosy wood burner for those cooler evenings. There is an electric kettle to make your morning cup of coffee, a fridge with an icebox and electric socket to charge your devices. You also have access to a well-appointed shared kitchen. Outside, relax in the private garden area with a wooden table and chairs where you can eat breakfast or enjoy a BBQ and evening drinks before some stargazing. Alternatively, head down to the wooden tepee with a warming firepit and chat with guests from the two other huts on the grounds. At the end of the day, take a refreshing rinse in the contemporary shower room, then snuggle up at night in the hut’s comfortable double bed.
