Waingates Farm Huts is home to three shepherd’s huts and two Nordic Igluhuts – each one lovingly crafted to the owners’ bespoke designs – in the heart of North Yorkshire. Found on the family-run Roecliffe Estate, this working arable farm promises you a warm welcome, breath-taking views, abundant wildlife, and the opportunity to truly unwind in rustic luxury.
Yain, Tain and Eddero may be named after an ancient shepherds’ system of tallying the flock home, but counting sheep will be the last thing on your mind here! After all, you won’t want to miss a moment of your beautifully cosy, timber clad shepherd’s hut – perfectly positioned to make the very most of the stunning countryside.
Peddero and Tayter, meanwhile, bring a welcome touch of Scandi style to North Yorkshire, both expertly crafted from spruce wood shingles, and boasting gorgeous curved windows that showcase those gorgeous rural views to perfection.
Each hut sleeps two, and has all the makings of an unforgettable romantic retreat. You’ll discover all the luxuries of a boutique hotel inside, including an en-suite shower room with luxury toiletries and fluffy robes, high speed Wifi, and plenty of scope to view those characterful big skies, whether you’re inside or out.
Although all of the huts offer a similar level of outstanding luxury, each is truly unique and comes with its very own hot tub. You’ll spot Tain from its stylish grey exterior and unique orange Weltevree Original Dutch tub, while light and airy Eddero is a vision in blue and white with its own stylish wood burning Japanese Ofuro, which you’ll also find gracing each of the Igluhuts. Last but not least, Yain has a more original timber feel which contrasts perfectly with its modern Swedish-designed Hikki aluminium wood-burning hot tub.
Once you’re inside your hut, you’ll be amazed by how much space there is to relax in. Heated to perfection, the stylish space has everything you need to relax, eat, dine and sleep, without feeling cramped or confined. The well-equipped kitchen area features everything to self-cater during your stay, including a sleek Nespresso coffee machine for that essential morning kick!
Savour your meals at the table for two, and cuddle up afterwards to watch your favourite TV programme or DVD together. Come night time, look forward to the most comfortable night’s sleep in your sumptuous bed, topped with luxurious bed linen. And when morning comes, wake to glorious birdsong and rolling pastures.Keep reading
