Shepherd's delight is a beautiful shepherd's hut tucked away within it's own woodland shared only with the local wildlife. This is a real get back to nature experience where you can fully recharge your batteries and escape the daily grind of the 21st century. The shepherd's hut itself has a woodburning stove so even cosy and warm during the winter months, a real romantic getaway. The double bed is fully sprung with luxury bedding-no expense spared when it comes to a good nights sleep. Experience the amazing outdoor hot shower and the wood burning hot tub (NB the hot tub is an additional £20/session payable on arrival).

The hut is situated just off the A61 half way between Harrogate and Ripon with the dales to the west and the moors to east. Perfectly positioned for walkers and cyclists with direct access onto some of the most beautiful footpaths and bridle ways in the area. Walk to nearby village inns (Breaton's Malt Shovel Inn or Burton Leonard's Hare & Hounds and The Royal Oak) or there is a pub in the village (The Red Lion) that's open all day everyday serving food. Being in the heart of North Yorkshire the hut is perfectly positioned for many of the areas attractions and there is village bus every 15mins to many of these for those of you wanting to keep your carbon footprint down.

The Yorkshire region

The shepherd's hut is equal distance between Harrogate and Ripon. The area is know as the gateway to the dales and in fact the hut is in Nidderdale-while not considered actually part of the dales is recognised as one of the most beautiful areas. The village of Ripley with it's castle, bistro, shops and gallery is on the doorstep. The world heritage site Fountains Abbey is a 10 minute drive away and even walkable from the hut on the bridle ways.

There is a very good bus service which runs from Ripon through the village, Ripley, Harrogate, Harewood House and finally to Leeds.

Ripley has a well know blues club with many well know acts playing. In the summer months Ripley Castle holds many open air concerts attracting big names. The Great Yorkshire Show, Harrogate Autumn & Spring Flower Show are held at the show ground in Harrogate. The Country Living show has now included Harrogate as one of it's venues. Many big shows and acts come to the theatres in Harrogate, Leeds and York and major concerts now held at the newly opened first direct arena in Leeds. In the summer there are many festivals in the area including the Leeds Fest.

In July 2014 the Tour de France will be coming through the area, in fact through the village, so you will have front row seats for this once in a lifetime event. The hut will be bookable for the weekend at a one off rate as it is anticipated it will be very busy in the area.
