  • "We had a great break here."

    Everything worked. It was well equipped, comfortable and snug. It's very like having a small cabin at sea.

    Getting in touch with owners was difficult before arrival and when we cut holiday short. Would not book that location again.

  • "We were a party of two (plus dog) walking along Hadrian's Wall."

    The property was in a great location next to a field with a stream and not much more than five minutes walk from the market square with its shops, pubs and transport connections. It was within walking distance of the Wall. The property itself was compact and cosy. Although small, it was thoughtfully equipped and well-maintained, clean and welcoming. It was very comfortable and just right for the two of us after each day's walking. The dog enjoyed her stay, too!

  • "Wonderful, cosy shepherds hut, just what we were looking for to get away from it all and relax It had all you need and more, including a welcoming bottle of wine The host couldn’t have been more helpful."

    It’s literally the centre of Britain, so great for exploring. Very close to Hadrian’s Wall, lots of National Trust properties and beautiful countryside to walk, cycle or drive in. We plan on returning next year

The property

This charming wooden shepherd’s hut is situated next door to the owner’s home, just 1 mile from Britain’s favourite tourist destination of Hadrian’s Wall. Set on the edge of the town of Haltwhistle, this lovely setting is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic break away or friends or family members to enjoy a get together.

The hut has four steps up to the stable door which can be left half open to let in the sunshine and fresh air.

The interior has been well thought out to provide all you need for a countryside break with comfortable seating and a warming woodburner.

There is also little kitchenette, dining table and folding chairs and a lovely shower room.

What could be nicer after a long days sightseeing than lighting your own cute woodburner, pouring your favourite tipple and curling up in your own cosy Shepherd’s Hut.

Outside there is a small decked area with chairs overlooking the shared garden where you can relax and breathe in the fresh countryside air.

A short drive from your hut will take you to Hadrians Wall or why not pop along to Haltwhistle for a bite to eat and a pint.

In an excellent location for heading East to the Heritage coast or West to the Lakes, this Shepherd’s Hut is the perfect destination for that long awaited rural break. Note: This property is on the same site as refs 961437 and 961439, together they sleep 8.

About the location


Hexham 17 miles.

Known as the 'Centre of Britain', this small market town is a great place from which to explore both Northumberland and Cumbria. Haltwhistle boasts a good range of shops and pubs - one of which, The Black Bull, is a real ale pub serving good food! There is an excellent leisure centre with heated open air swimming pool and cycle hire in the town, with pony trekking nearby. One of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall is only a mile to the north with various museums, forts and milecastles to be seen. There is even an ongoing 'dig' at the nearby site of Vindolanda. This truly is magnificent walking, riding and cycling country, with the Pennine Way and various bridleways and cycle routes passing rivers, forests, castles and of course, Hadrian's Wall. Visitors will enjoy this location in all weather and all seasons – a regular train and bus service from the town to Newcastle, The Metro Centre and Carlisle, means that you can leave the car behind and enjoy!
