This beautiful timber framed Shepherd’s Hut stands on its own in a glorious south facing meadow in the quiet countryside above the charming fishing village of Staithes. The hut is truly a year round destination, equally beautiful and cosy in January as in the Summer months. Why not lie-in in style; through the large glazed screen you can enjoy a panoramic view over the woods, fields and valley from your king-size bed. Sitting on your private terrace, the views down to Staithes and the sea are superb. The Shepherds Hut is fully insulated and there is a small electric heater for cooler evenings. WiFi is available free of charge. Outside there is a small lockable shed providing storage for boots, coats etc, and a kettle barbecue is provided.
There is a shared games room which includes a 3/4 size snooker table, table tennis, table football and many books, board games and DVDs. The owners can provide special event dinners in the house along with guided walks in the area. Tai Chi lessons and personal tuition available.
This haven of peace can also be hired as an “add on” for Acorn Cottage (WA040) and Catkin Cottage (WA041) as perfect quirky accommodation for another couple. As both these cottages have comfortable lounge seating and a table and chairs for four guests, you can sit, relax and dine together in the comfort of a cottage. Later, why not stroll up to the Shepherds Hut to enjoy the stunning views from the terrace, perhaps over a glass of wine. Other accommodation at this delightful location includes Oak Cottage (WA042) and Willow Cottage (WA043) which both sleep six guests.

The Shepherds Hut we stayed in was set in beautiful peaceful countryside with stunning views, just a short drive from the beach. It was excellent value for money and had everything we needed for a fantastic break.
Absolutely stunning location and perfect cosy hut (the shower is great). We will be sad to leave Ridge Hall after such a short stay and hope to return and go all the way through the mining tunnels!
Had a wonderful 5 days here, we really don't want to leave! This trip was for our anniversary & we couldn't have found a more perfect spot. The hut has everything you could wish for & the attention to details is spot on. Comfy big bed, powerful hot shower and the views are to die for. We had a visit from a pheasant every morning and loved watching the swifts swooping & hunting insects in the field. We spent a day on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, a day in Harrogate having afternoon tea at Bettys & the last day just lazing in the meadow-bliss. Some lovely local pubs, cafes and chip shops too! The owners are really lovely & very helpful with local knowledge & rightly very proud of the Shepherds hut - we would recommend it thoroughly! Great holiday!
A welcoming and pleasant hut to stay in with wonderous views. It can warm up very quickly and nicely on a cold day and can cool down just as fast on a warm day. Enjoyed delicious meals at the Magpie in Whitby and going on different walks with beautiful scenery. Would definitely recommend this hut to others! Thank you
Amazing, fantastic, warm, kind, beautiful
A wonderful little spot set in a beautiful valley. A fantastic glamping experience. The hut has everything that you need and more to have a comfortable stay, and the surrounds will keep you more than occupied - beach & coastal village down the road, walking through the valley on your doorstep, the moors just a few miles away. It is a great base to explore the National Park and further afield, equally you could have a very good time between the local pubs, Staithes and the hut as it is really well put together, so you can be nice and cosy in it, and the cooking facilities are more than adequate to rustle up a nice meal that you can enjoy on the decking and watch the house martins flit about the grass. If you're lucky you'll have a visit from other local wildlife, maybe a pheasant or two, a hare or even deer!
Wow, what a brilliant experience. We told the owner that it was perfect, there was nothing she could add to make it even better. The shower was amazing. Better than yurts or glamping. Thank you.
Staithes is a pretty, traditional fishing village with bundles of charm located 10 miles north of Whitby and offers an idyllic location for holidaymakers visiting the seaside. The village boasts some of the narrowest cobbled streets in the north and is connected with ginnels, nooks and winding streets. There is plenty to see and do with pubs, cafes, shops, art galleries and a fish smokehouse. The village hosts real ale and jazz festivals during the year and the September Arts Festival is becoming a very popular event which attracts many visitors. For those fancying taking to the waters there are regular boat trips to Whitby from Staithes. There are many walks around the area along the cliff tops and through to Whitby, it is an ideal location for any holidaymaker.
