This cosy hut has a log burning stove ensuring you stay warm and cosy whatever the weather. There is a double bed and two bunk beds (which can also be converted to a sofa should you wish). There is a balcony with a table and chairs outside the hut which is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of the day. There is also a BBQ and picnic table for you to use during your stay.

There is lots of room for children and your dog to play outside the hut and wildlife lovers will not be disappointed, there are a pair of red kites that nest in a nearby tree in Hagg Hill's grounds, so the kites are often seen throughout the day soaring overhead. Deer are frequent visitors to this area too and can be spotted from the hut at all times of day.

Enjoy afternoon tea and a piece of cake when you return from your walk along the derwent. The owner has a glass making studio on site and is always happy to show you round and you may even be tempted to buy a little souvenir to remind you of your stay in this beautiful area.

The Tyne and Wear region

The Northumberland coastline is a land far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a county brimming with places to see and things to do amongst the most spectacular of landscapes.

North East England really is a gem of an area that simply must be discovered! It offers wide variety, from exhilarating coastline with its blue flag beaches and acres of beautiful and tranquil countryside, to cultural contemporary cities and rich heritage sites.

Highlights are the incredible Hadrian's Wall, a 73 mile World Heritage Site, the Angel of the North, one of most viewed pieces of public art in the world, Durham Cathedral, a magnificent World Heritage Site, and The Sage Gateshead, a simply stunning building playing host to music from around the world.

Also home to the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Beamish Open Air Museum, akin to taking a journey in a time machine, Holy Island, Alnwick Garden, and Bamburgh Castle. There really is something for everyone here, and lots of choice for shopaholics, including the hugely popular Metro Centre and Eldon Square shopping malls. There is also an abundance of bars and restaurants, many serving delicious local produce.

Explore mile upon mile of gloriously uncrowded golden sandy beaches and stunning countryside set amongst two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the rugged Northumberland National Park. Discover more castles than anywhere else in England, the birthplace of English Christianity on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the historic World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall, stunning Alnwick Garden picturesque towns and villages and much more.

There are plenty of golf courses and lots of activities and some great walking.


The cottage is easy to get to by car or public transport. Deer Hut is served daily by a bus service from Newcastle and from MetroCentre to Winlaton Mill.

By car, Deer Hut is reached from the A1. Follow signs for the A694 heading to Rowlands Gill and Consett , the Hut is only 10 minutes drive.

Cheap flights are available from many major European cities to Newcastle Airport through operators such as Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 and others and the cottage is under half an hour's drive from the airport.
