Sitting in a meadow bursting with wild grasses and pretty flowers, and home to an abundance of meadow life, this cute Shepherd's Hut offers visitors peace and tranquility, beauty and romance. Small but lovely, the wooden hut has a curved roof and a little chimney poking from the top. A couple of small steps lead guests to the entrance - a traditional stable door which is illuminated by an outside lantern-style light at night.
The hut was built by local craftsmen, a Douglas fir was felled specifically for the build, and, as such, exudes traditional country charm and a tranquil atmosphere. Inside, wood panels cover the walls and curved ceiling, and polished floorboards are heated underneath for maximum cosiness. The colour scheme is light and pretty, with Farrow and Ball paints used throughout the hut. Tasteful, country-style fabrics have been used for the soft-furnishings, from the blinds and curtains to cushion covers.
As guests enter, or pop their head over the stable door, they face the small but well-equipped kitchen with a full sized oven, two ring halogen hob, microwave, ceramic sink and full sized fridge with ice box. Everything anyone could need for creating a lovely breakfast, lunch or supper for two. A window sits above the sink offering views of the lovely surroundings and an opportunity to listen to the sounds of the natural world. Opposite the kitchen is a counter where food can be enjoyed when the weather is less than clement.
The bed lies snugly across one end of the hut, discreetly hidden behind two large curtains. This comfy double is overlooked by a small, curtained window and there is storage space in the base of the bed for keeping belongings tidied away and out of sight.
The compact shower room has a washbasin, heated towel rail, toilet and a shower. There is a large water tank with immersion heater ensuring there is plenty of hot water. For added warmth, a wood burner sits in the corner of the hut providing heat and atmosphere to this already lovely abode.
Northumberland is a magical part of the country with fabulous beaches, historic castles and wonderful nature spotting opportunities. The hut is just five miles from the Holy Island causeway, so pull on your wellies and explore. Or take a boat out to the Farne Islands to see Puffins, Seals and nesting birds or visit Bamburgh beach at night time with the illuminated castle as a backdrop.
There are plenty of lovely traditional pubs to visit including The Joiners Arms at Alnwick and The Lord Crewe Hotel at Bamburgh. Or stroll the 45 minutes along a green bridleway to The Black Bull Inn at Lowick which also has a good restaurant and shop.
