I really enjoyed my stay at this little Sheperds Hut. Waking up with the birds sing. Had a visit of a deer next to the cabin. 2m distance. Very nice and relaxing to stay here. The Hut was nice and tidy. I had all that I needed in the cottage. When you’re looking for a nice small cottage in a private setting, surrounded by nature, then this is a place you want to look for.

The Shepherd's Hut was just perfect for the 5 of us (my husband and me, our 2 boys and dog). Quirky, rustic and beautifully made, the Hut felt like a secret retreat. Just the right amount of space around us to make it feel like we were tucked away, but so close to so many brilliant things to visit. Gibside was lovely, and we stayed until late to eat the freshly baked pizzas under fairy lights. Beamish, Hadrian's Wall, National Trust's Wallington House and the Derwent Water walks were all great. Pretty good meal out at the Red Kite too. Brilliant 3 nights away.
