Local Area - In the Paddocks

Tucked away in a delightful corner of the Northumbrian countryside, our luxurious shepherd's huts are a true escape.

A place to lose the pressures of modern life and re-discover the pleasure of dark night skies, enjoying company of friends and family around a real fire as sparks spit and wind their way towards galaxies of stars and waking up to the sound of bird song.

It's a place to get together and be together. As a couple, as a family or as friends. Wildlife is all around, from buzzards winding in the thermals above to red squirrels curiously gathering nuts from the picnic tables dotted around the site.

On your doorstep...
