Beautiful shepherd’s hut in a picturesque village with glorious, open countryside views towards Kielder. With several outside seating and dining options and friendly wildlife close by.

This charming shepherd’s hut enjoys a romantic setting within the grounds of a manor house in Birtley village in the North Tyne Valley. Perfect for walkers, runners and cyclists, with many routes from the doorstep, including ancient local woodland. Wark is close by for shops, pubs and good restaurants plus relaxing river walks and try the Michelin starred restaurant in Wall. Head into the National Park for Kielder’s expansive water and forest park and Hadrian’s Wall for Roman Forts and fascinating history. Visit Hexham’s market town for a day at the races and historic Corbridge for Roman relics, independent shops, and renowned eateries. Drive to Rothbury’s Cragside House and then on to sandy beaches at Bamburgh on the Northumberland coast.

Access to the hut is via the manor house’s side garden gates and, as you walk towards the property, you will pass two of the four seating areas available to you during your stay, where you can relax in the sunshine or lie star gazing at night. Walk up the three steps into this cosy and welcoming shepherd’s hut to find a sofa that slides down to make your double bed for night time and you can slide it back in place for daytime seating if you prefer. The wood burner will keep you toasty when you want it and clever storage houses everything you need to cook your meals, including an induction hob, small multi cooker, microwave and small fridge. An oil heater also provides additional heating. After washing up, you can cover the sink with its wooden top and make use of the work surface again. There are two comfortable dining chairs and a small wall table where you can enjoy your morning coffee with a DAB radio for entertainment. The separate shower room with WC is close by within your garden.

Head outside for al-fresco breakfasts and evening meals sitting at the garden table and chairs and take in those amazing views. There is another patio table and chairs near the fire pit where you can enjoy your favourite drink after a BBQ and gaze up at the inky black sky. Say hello to the friendly alpacas in the field at the end of the garden. There is off-road parking for up to three cars on the private, gravel drive shared with the Byre which is located in a separate area.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
