The Shepherd's Hut is a really unique place to stay and a fantastic experience. It's clean, beautifully decorated and well kitted out. It's surroundings of a private patio and pond are idyllic - Grant (August '18)

Hut in the Hollow provided a sweet little slice of tranquility, among the wildlife. High quality and comfortable in the hut. The patio/garden area with the pond is great for eating out on at breakfast and sitting looking at the stars at night. Very impressed - Kerry (August '18)

The space
#HutintheHollow has all mod cons. You have a extra long super comfy double bed in a self contained bedroom/lounge/kitchen. You 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. There is also a portable radiator to take the chill off. There is a comfy chair and a cracket stool and a fold up table for eating.

Whilst it is a Shepherd's Hut there are plenty of electric points and wi fi. The Shepherd and his flock would be well impressed #HutLife

There is a separate bathroom with flushing toilet, sink and full shower.

There is a beautiful secluded garden and pond. The garden is a great little sun trap.

Guest access
Our guests have full access to the designated garden around the #HutintheHollow. This includes all of #HutintheHollow , the patio area in front of the Hut, the grassed area by the pond and the path leading to the entrance gate. There is a small patio area where the logs are stored. Please feel free to take logs for the wood burner from there.

Please note that whilst #HutintheHollow is in a quiet space at the bottom of a large garden there will be, at times some road noise, particularly at peak times. You will notice this only if you are in the garden or have windows open. It is quieter in the evenings and generally at the weekends. Once you are in the #HutintheHollow you are cocooned in peace & tranquility.

Sit back and relax.

15 minute walk into the historical City of Durham. You can do this through North End and down Western Hill or through the beautiful Flass Vale a stunning wooded area in the centre of Durham City. It is 20 minutes on your return and it’s quite hilly.

You are a 7 minute walk to the nearest Sainsbury's.

Kathy & I run Old Cinema Launderette in Durham, England. It’s a Launderette/Bar/Venue. Nothing unusual there then. The Hut in the Hollow, a luxurious Shepherd’s Hut lies in its own little garden with a pond. It’s a bit quirky, it’s a bit romantic, it’s very self contained. Come stay. Nurse, parent, husband, accident prone cyclist. Used to stalk Bruce Springsteen..... in a nice way. Has a limited concentration span. When we stay as travellers we look after your place. Pleased to meet you.

We have a very friendly dog, Jarvis, who is around our garden occasionally. Please don’t let him into the Hut/Hut garden as he can be a nuisance.
