The detail

Escape to tranquility at Shepherd's Delight - a cosy off-grid shepherd's hut close to the wonderful spa town of Harrogate. Situated within its own woodland, Shepherd's Delight is the ideal spot for a relaxing retreat. The charming hut is fully-insulated for all-year round enjoyment and every detail has been carefully considered for your comfort. Unwind in the outdoor hot tub, or stay toasty by the wood-burning stove on cosy nights in. Feel at one with nature and explore the local countryside, inns and a range of nearby amenities.

Perfect for a romantic break for two, you can truly get away from it all at Shepherd's Delight. A haven for wildlife, keep your eyes peeled for rabbits, bats and an array of birds. You may even be greeted by the resident sheep and alpacas!

Thanks to double glazing and sheep's wool insulation, this off-grid hut can be enjoyed whatever the weather. Keep snug with a book by the wood-burning stove, which can also be used to cook upon or boil a kettle for a comforting cup of tea.

When not out exploring, you can make the most of the facilities at your fingertips. Catch up on some reading as you sway in the hammock, or take a soothing hot tub dip with a glass of your favourite bubbly. A BBQ and outdoor dining area are at your disposal for alfresco meals. Come nightfall, listen to the crackling sound of the fire pit as you roast marshmallows and soak up the serenity.

Ready to turn in for the night after a day's adventure? Sleep soundly on the spacious double bed with a fully sprung mattress and an alpaca duvet. Feel that holiday bliss as you drift off in luxurious cotton bedding.

A beautifully constructed wooden outhouse houses the nearby loo, with a ceramic sink in close proximity. Indulge in your environment, as you experience the freedom of an invigorating hot outdoor shower - a great way to start the day (please note that due to the shower being outdoors, it may not be usable in extremely cold temperatures due to frozen pipes)!

Admire the garden view from the comfort of your private cabin, with all cooking equipment provided as well as a supply of wood for the log burner. A breakfast basket is included as part of your stay.

Discover the spa town of Harrogate, the Yorkshire Moors and Dales and much more in the vicinity. Explore hiking trails and satisfy post-walk appetites at one of the fantastic local inns. A range of amenities can be found in the nearby village of Ripley, including a butchers and a village store.
