In an idyllic valley in the North York Moors National Park, our hand built shepherds hut at Gumboots & Wellingtons is stylish & comfortable, with log burning stove for cosy evenings.
The Hut is fully equipped with en-suite shower room, gas central heating & compact kitchen.
Your stay will be truly magical, surrounded by nature.
Relax & recharge in the garden, explore miles of walking trails & cycle paths in Dalby Forest, venture to York, to the coast, or to Malton, ‘food capital of Yorkshire’.

The space
The Hut at Gumboots & Wellingtons is in a unique setting, with lovely farmland views across the valley.
The Hut itself is a real gem, well proportioned and surprisingly spacious. Accessed via steps, The Hut is open plan with a full sized double bed, kitchen, dining table and wood burning stove all in one space. The shower room is accessed via a door next to the kitchen.
There are lots of well thought out details which make it extra special. Books, board games, playing cards and a set of binoculars are provided to help you enjoy your visit, everything you will need to make your stay a real treat.
Outside there is a fire pit / barbecue which you are welcome to use (extra wood can be purchased from your hosts). Being close to Dalby Forest which is known for dark skies, star gazing is spectacular here.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to enjoy the garden. There is a fire pit / barbecue in the garden which you are welcome to use. Wood for this can be purchased from your hosts.

Other things to note
We include breakfast supplies to get you started.... usually home made granola, yoghurts, locally pressed apple juice and bread+jam for toast. Tea, locally roasted coffee, milk & sugar are also provided. Please let us know any dietary requirements or requests.

We request that guests bring their own bath towels (we are trying to be a bit ‘greener’ by not having to wash bulky towels). We provide a hand towel & tea towel.

WiFi is available near the cottage, it may be sporadic in The Hut due to the distance from the hub.

Mobile phone reception can be limited, depending on your network provider. We see this as a bonus, it gives our guests the chance to properly switch off and unwind.
