A stunning, handcrafted shepherd's hut on the outskirts of the achingly-beautiful Yorkshire Dales, this property provides an unparalleled place to unwind and a base for wider exploration.

One of three gorgeous shepherds' huts in a complex set around a duck pond in stunning North Yorkshire. There are lovely walks from the doorstep and a pretty village within a 5-minutes' stroll. Sleeping up to three adults comfortably, they are the perfect rustic retreat for couples and young families alike. Handbuilt by the owner, this beautiful little shepherds' hut which comes equipped with everything you need for a cosy short break. Inside you'll find a small but perfectly proportioned open plan living space. It's a bijou space, and with its neutral wood panelling it feels surprisingly spacious. In addition to the electric radiators, a cute little wood burner sits at its heart keeping everything nice and toasty, whatever the time of year! And in the evenings, the mood lighting creates a very special atmosphere inside. If you're concerned about going too off-grid, don't be - the hut comes complete with a TV/DVD. There's a small kitchen which includes a hob, sink, fridge and plenty of crockery and glassware to use. A small dining area is set by the wood burner, the perfect spot to sit down for lunch and enjoy the antics of the ducks outside.

The bespoke beds are super-comfortable offering space for two below and one above. Kids, in particular, will adore their lofty sleeping quarters! At the opposite end of the hut you'll find a walk-in shower room and WC. Outside you'll find a picnic bench with uninterrupted views of the duck pond and surrounding countryside. A lovely spot for al fresco dining in the warmer months. And if you don't feel like cooking, we recommend the bridal path walk past the church to the pretty village nearby for lunch. The wider estate has a number of other attractions including various activities, plenty of spots to throw down a picnic blanket and a children's play area too.

There is a log burning hot tub, available for hire priced at £50 for first use and £15 each day thereafter.

The hut was in a lovely location, with only a short walk to the village. Mrs Baker was very informative on arrival and check in was straight forward. There were all amenities needed within the hut and it was clean and in good condition.

It wasn't spacious enough for 3 of us for a week, maybe a long weekend would have been better. Lovely area though.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
