Northern England region
he Yorkshire Wolds and Vale of York are a great central location, situated just to the east of the country between the south of England and Scotland. We can't promise beautiful sunshine everyday but the east of the country does tend to have a lower rainfall.
To the west of the Wolds you will discover the popular Cities of York and Harrogate.
The beautiful coastline and seaside towns of Bridlington, Scarborough, Whitby and Filey a short drive to the East.
The Shepherd's hut sitswithin easy reach of the recently named, 'Hockney Country'. The surrounding area is where the world famous artist, David Hockney has found much of his inspiration. Garrowby Hill, the so called 'Gateway to the Wolds', is only a minutes drive from the lodges, giving you the perfect footing to go and enjoy the wonders of the area and see where many of his stunning paintings have originated from. You may also enjoy a to visit the Robert Fuller art gallery at Thixendale.
The centre of the historic City of York is only 15 miles, a 30 minutes drive away. Attractions there include, The Jorvik Museum, The National Railway Museum, and even York Dungeons. There is York Minster, Clifford tower both steeped in history or why not walk the city walls.
MUSEUMS AND HISTORIC HOMES
Just out of town there is still plenty to do. There are numerous museums and places to explore within easy reach. There is the Yorkshire Farming Museum and the Yorkshire Air Museum – both only 15 minutes away. Or why not visit one of the fabulous Historic Houses with their surrounding gardens such as Castle Howard, Sledmere House or Burton Agnes, all only a short drive. Burnby Hall gardens in Pocklington is also worth visiting.
If walking is your thing, we are lucky enough to be on the Minster Way and the Chalkland Way, with foot paths on the doorstep that lead to the Wolds Way. Walkers are very welcome. Take a walk and discover the hidden gems of the Yorkshire Wolds, surprising country side, wildlife and a wealth of traditional country pubs.
If you simply like the seaside, there are beautiful beaches that remain unspoilt at the East coast, only 40mins drive away.
City of Hull 30 miles (40 minutes - 1 hour). The interesting city of Hull plays host to museums, great restaurants and of course one of the country's best loved attractions, The Deep www.thedeep.co.uk, the world's only submarium.
STAMFORD BRIDGE is only a few miles away, famous for the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066.
Step back in time and visit the lost village of Wharram Percy (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/wharram-percy-deserted-medieval-village/).

"Wonderful relaxing peaceful"
We stayed for 3 nights and right from our arrival to leaving everything was perfect. We were greeted on arrival by Ruth who explained everything to us, showed us the shower block wish was only 25 steps from our little hut. Everything was so clean and neat, from the hut to the shower and toilet to the grounds. Ruth had provided a breakfast basket and there were fresh flowers in the hut along with the basics. A lovely log burner which due to the heat we did not use small TV,microwave, kettle and toaster all there. Had we needed them there were wellies available all new and clean, torch umbrella etc.
The showers were spotless and so warm with a heated towel rail.
The bed was so comfortable and cosy and the decor was Kath Kidson.
We had such a wonderful time that we have already booked our next visit.
Recommend the local pub and a visit to the gardens in nearby Pocklington.
Loads of Apple trees about and we were invited to help ourselves to them.
WIFI access free!
Well done Ruth and team
Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review of your stay at Spring Dale Shepherd Hut, it is really kind and hopefully helpful for others. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes, Ruth

Thank you for your kind words we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Its really helpful to know that the design works as we are just about to start building our second Shepherd Hut. This will be ready Mid-Late October 2014 and we will then be able to accommodate 6 guests in our Shepherd Huts. Also thank you for positive feed back on the breakfast basket, we have been working hard to get this right. Ruth

Ideal for a short break for 2 or 3 people and set in a beautiful area. Not too far away from the city so it's perfect if you want to visit for a shopping trip.

"Glamping at its best, will probably never stay in a tent again!"
Shepherds Hut has been fantastically well thought out, extremely warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean with some lovely finishing touches. Shower and washing facilites first class with washing machine and tumble drier available. Perfect place to rewind as is situated so you arent overlooked. Pretty little village , friendly pub, visitors must check out the the church. Hope to visit again.
