My partner and I had a really quirky 1 night stay in the shepherds hut,was really nice to switch off from civilisation for a day and be at one in the middle of a field...it is slightly expensive for one night but as a one off experience you have to try it
First off I just want to say we received the warmest welcome to any other cottage/campsite we've ever visited! Absolutely hassle free and no bridge to far to cater to the lodgers needs granted we arrived last minuet and out of season we stayed at night in the Shepherds Hut and a night in the no.8 cottage with hot tub (to wich we didn't utilise due to weather) Gill welcomed us with a bottle of proseco and waked us with a funeral full English breakfast in the morning
First Night in the Shepherds Hut was superb!not a single gripe it was cosy romantic warm clean and intimate. We asked Gill on the second day if we could stay at the cottage due to us having a large German Shepherd who couldn't get comfortable and Gill offered us the second night
Second night in the no.8 cottage was superb after a long long walk around malham cove with the dog and wife it was exactly what we needed to warm up and relax
Loved every moment of being here, can't wait to go again. Perfect night away and wonderful hosts!!!!
The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating on arrival, contact beforehand was very concise and quick which made it so much easier to arrange when we would arrive. The shepherds hut itself is a dream come true, completely cosy and everything that you need for a lovely weekend break away, cereals provided for breakfast but also the option of a cooked breakfast from the B and B if you want. Log fire heats up the hut in no time, and to say we stayed the week before Christmas not one moment did either of us feel cold, so please don't be put off if you are looking to go in winter, in all honesty it adds to the cosy environment. Pets and animals on the farm are very friendly and we had many welcomed visits from the resident cat, and then there is Dave the llama loves to have his photo taken. The farm is a short distance from both Harrogate, Knaresborough and York, so very convenient for days out. I would highly recommend this place for couples, and I have already spread the word. Thanks for such a fab weekend!
I booked this as a surprise for my boyfriend as we love to go camping. I thought it would be nice to try a bit of 'glamping' instead and we booked one of the tents, and WOW. We arrived a little early so we walked around the farm and had a nosy. It was gorgeous, everything was so picturesque :)
The tent itself was really nice, all fresh bedding (and a mattress!!), blankets, hot water bottles and so many fairy lights. They even provide tea coffee and biscuits inside the little 'hobbit hole'. Its location was great, bang in the middle of Harrogate, and York, so we did both places on two different days, and the sun was shining which made it a million times better. There is a local Chinese restaurant just down the road near the petrol station which was perfect for a last minute decision for a meal out. And the toilets and showers provided at the farm were clean and tidy.
What more can you ask for? Amazing one night stay, would love to go again with friends.
Oh they also have Llamas on the farm. HILARIOUS!!
