The shepherd’s hut itself is a real gem, well proportioned and surprisingly spacious. Accessed via steps, the hut is open plan with a full sized double bed, kitchen, dining table and wood burning stove all in one space. The shower room is accessed via a door next to the kitchen.

  • The use of a bike store.
  • Use of the bbq/fire pit (extra wood can be purchased).

There are lots of well thought out details which make it extra special. Books, board games, playing cards and a set of binoculars are provided to help you enjoy your visit, everything you will need to make your stay a real treat.

Outside there is a bbq/fire pit which you are welcome to use (extra wood can be purchased from your hosts). It’s proximity to Dalby Forest, which is known for it’s dark skies, means star gazing is particularly spectacular here.

After a leisurely breakfast of home made granola, fresh fruit juice, yoghurts and toast you will make your way (lifts can be arranged if you are travelling without a car) to Hannah’s studio in nearby Thornton-le-Dale. Here you will spend an arty afternoon producing your own lino prints to take home. Afternoon refreshments of cake and coffee/tea will be provided.
