  • "The Shepherds Hut is a fantastic place to stay."

    It’s very cleverly laid out with everything you need. The view is amazing and it’s so peaceful. Lots to do nearby including some lovely walks on the moors, great market towns and lots of tourist attractions. The hosts are very welcoming, generous and kind. We couldn’t fault our stay and it exceeded our expectations having not stayed in this type of property before. We stayed for a weekend but would love to stay again and for longer as it’s such a beautiful place. Thank you for a truly lovely stay.

    Immaculate and cosy accommodation. This brand new hut was absolutely spotless in a beautiful location with every need catered for including the lovely welcome basket on arrival. It was beautifully designed, and decorated to a very high standard. Our hosts were very welcoming and we will definitely be returning soon. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "Sheep Cote Shepherd's Hut is a hidden gem."

    The place is absolutely wonderful, very cosy, with everything you need, its own bathroom and an amazing view of the Yorkshire moors. The place is a little piece of heaven, quiet and peaceful, in a very well situated area in the North York Moors from where you can walk, visit, or just enjoy life staying at the hut. Jo and Rob are great hosts and give you a very warm welcome (and seeing the life of the sheep farm is an additional bonus). Not one bad thing to say about this stay. Best booking experience ever, and we will definitely go back !

  • "What a beautiful place to stay set right in the heart of the countryside."

    The views from the front door are breathtaking and from the garden you can watch the sheep in the fields next door. We relaxed from the minute we arrived. The hut is well equipped for self catering and the hosts had left us a lovely goodie bag on arrival. Would highly recommend this little gem.

The property

Stokesley 7.5 miles and Helmsley 12 miles.

Enjoying a serene setting with gorgeous views of the North York Moors is this inviting, one-bed shepherds hut, Sheep Cote.

Resting on a working hill farm close to the village of Chop Gate, this charming and secluded dwelling invites couples, or perfect for individuals wanting to get away on their own, for a relaxing break amidst the beauty of the North York Moors National Park.

The shepherd hut is sited on what used to be the old sheep pens where work was carried out on the flocks, hence the name ‘Sheep Cote’ another word for ‘Sheep Pen’.

After a day of wandering the local area, step into this cosy and spacious shepherd hut and prepare a meal in the kitchen, fitted with a full size multi function electric oven, 2-ring hob, full size fridge and ice box, so you’ll have everything on-hand for home-cooking.

Choose to sit at the dining table or take the evening outside.

Enjoy a romantic evening with the pretty festoon lighting and enjoy a spot of star gazing.

The North York Moors National Park has been designated as an International Dark Sky Reserve.

Head to the spacious shower room for a freshen up before curling up in the king size bed to catch your rest; there is an electric flame-effect stove and wall-mounted Smart TV to compliment.

There are many walks from the hut itself which you can pick up – there is an OS map provided - and takes you across hills, moorland, fields and through woods.

Including the famous and very popular Cleveland Way National Trail – a 109 mile (175km) walking route.

About the location


  • Great Ayton 3 miles
  • Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles

Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.

Please note: This property comes with a good housekeeping bond of £75.
