Really enjoyed our stay in the shepherds hut, the accommodation was lovely and so different to anywhere we have stayed before. The surroundings are so tranquil and the hut is situated in the countryside with amazing views. The hut itself is of a high standard, very cosy and welcoming, the log burner is an added bonus we managed a very peaceful nights sleep which is rare when we stay elsewhere. The hosts Maggie and family are wonderful, she went above and beyond our expectations to make our stay enjoyable and ensured we had everything we needed and more!. The breakfast in the morning was faultless! Really quality local ingredients and Maggie's baking alone is well worth the trip! We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked another two nights here and we are very much looking forward to it. Our only negative is that we didnt try one of maggies famous jam and cream scones! Hopefully next time! 
Shepherds Hut - Where to start with this lovely place?! We spotted the new Shepherds Hut whilst stopping for tea & cake at Dale Head (equally as wonderful I might add) and booked in straight away for a nights stay the following weekend. The place and experience were both stunning. The hut itself is lovely, comfortable, warm and cosy, with the most comfy bed ever. Maggie was so welcoming without being fussy, showed us around, asked where we would like our breakfast in the morning, checked we were okay for dinner plans, and then left us to it - to the stunning scenery and blissful silence. The view from the door of the hut is simply spectacular and the log burner is a delight - so much so that we couldn't wait for the rain to come in so that we could light it. There were homemade ginger biscuits in a tin which were delicious and breakfast the next morning was the best I have ever had (I mean that). The walking in the area is beautiful and it literally on the doorstep. Altogether, genuinely a stunning place to stay, we've already booked in again for two nights in September! 
Fantastic location, wonderful hospitality, generous cookẹd breakfast. 
"Staying in a quirky wooden shepherd's hut, basic, but very snug, specially with the wood burner on. The warm welcome, the working farm and the feeling of living in the great big open spaces of the moors. Easy access to many walking trails and places like York or the coast, within an hours drive."

"Perfect accommodation with fantastic views around the moorland! Everything you need for your break supplied to make the stay warm and comfortable!" 
"Excellent stay. Maggie was very helpful helping me to source a bottle of wine that I had forgotten. She was a fantastic source of local knowledge. She also explained the improvements that they are planning and we look forward to returning soon."

Stayed with my 6 year old son for one night 
"Stayed with my 6 year old son for one night in the Shepherd’s Hut. Set overlooking the valley, on the edge of a working farm, it’s a great location if you’re hankering after a bit of peace and quiet in a rural and rustic location - which we were. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owner, Maggie, who was wonderful. What’s more, she is an amazing cook and as other have said, the breakfast was one of the best I’ve had, with locally sourced, quality produce. My son loved the Shepherd’s Hut and is already asking to go again."

Beautiful spot, fabulous accommodation and tasty extras! 
"The setting is sublime, ultimately that's the primary selling point. But then there's the fabulous host Maggie and the 'dog for hire' too (if you want, and let her, she'll sit on your lap - the dog, not Maggie that is). Not to mention the tasty breakfast, beautiful accommodation, the delicious flapjack left for us and the lovely clean facilities. Bang on a walkers/cyclist route but well off the beaten path, its a terrific mix. Second visit will not be our last." 
It's diverse and fun meeting all the lovely, inspirational people that visit our Tea Garden. Hope to see you all again soon.
