A beautiful handmade Shepherd's Hut on the edge of historic Durham City. A quirky Hut with all mod cons in an enclosed space with patio area, seating, mature planting and pond. Keep an eye out for the frogs. You will also see, at dusk our resident bat population.
You have a extra long super comfy double bed in a self contained bedroom/lounge/kitchen. You will have a wood burning stove and logs for those chilly nights. We will set the fire for you should you wish to use it. Extra logs are available free of charge. For your comfort there is also a comfy chair and a cracket stool and area for eating.
There is an electric blanket on the bed should you require it.
We leave freshly roasted coffee for the cafetiere, milk and tea bags.
The kitchen comprises Fridge, two ring hob, kettle & toaster. There is a slow cooker available.
Whilst it is a Shepherd's Hut there are plenty of electric points and very functional wi fi. The Shepherd and his flock would be well impressed!
There is a separate bathroom with flushing toilet, sink and full shower.
