A unique glamping experience that offers the best of both worlds, with countryside surrounding the shepherds hut providing tranquillity, and only a short drive into the centre of beautiful York.

Situated in the grounds of a working farm, this quaint shepherds hut offers a fantastic position from which to explore some of Yorkshire’s finest locations. Located just under ten miles from York, it’s ideal for a city break to discover the culture and diverse retail available; the medieval architecture is striking, and the vibrant streets offer a plethora of shops, restaurants and galleries to discover, plus multiple attractions such as York’s Chocolate Story and York Dungeons. Heading north, just a short drive will take you to Malton, fondly known as Yorkshire’s foodie capital. The market town boasts an abundance of culinary havens stocking everything from gelato, pasta and cakes, to coffee, seafood and meats.

Step inside the shepherds hut, kick off your shoes and hang up your coat, and explore the surprisingly spacious accommodation. The cosy snug area to the left is where you’ll find the double bed, which has handy shelving units for storage, and is an ideal space for just the two of you. Why not take along a laptop and some DVDs to create your very own mini cinema? The large dresser in front of the door has plates, cutlery and mugs to use during your stay, as well as a BBQ bucket and additional equipment. To the right of the door is a day bed, or seating space if you’d prefer. It’s ideal for relaxing, listening to some music on the iPod docking station, or catching up on a book, and can also be used by a child for a bed if you have a little one joining your adventure. The electric heater in the hut will help keep you warm and toasty on cooler evenings, plus there are soft throws provided as an extra little home comfort. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are located in the annexe just 30m across the orchard; the utility space features a fridge, microwave, sink, utensils, washing machine and dryer, whilst the shower room has a walk-in shower and toilet.

The fire pit outside sets the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the tranquillity of a night time, gazing up at the clear night sky and the stars, and the BBQ bucket is ideal for cooking up a delicious al fresco dinner. There is private parking available.
