Buttercrambe Shepherd’s Hut

Editorial Description

If you’re looking to combine a city break with a glamping experience, then the Shepherd’s Hut at Buttercrambe might be just what you’re looking for.

Located in an orchard on a working farm, this authentic hand-made Shepherd’s Hut provides a peaceful escape from everyday life, yet is only a short drive away from the historic city of York. The hut is fenced off from the farm and has fantastic views across the rolling countryside.

Life inside the hut is compact but cosy, with all the comforts you would expect from a glamping experience. Every morning, a breakfast basket will be delivered to the Shepherd’s Hut door so that guests can use the kettle, toaster, teapot and cafeteria provided for a leisurely breakfast. For something more substantial later in the day, there are additional cooking facilities in an annex to the farmhouse (which is also where the private bathroom is located). For the evenings, a barbeque and fire pit means guests can relax and curl up under the stars before retiring to the comfortable double bed.

Within the local area are many country rambles, and the walled medieval city of York with its Viking Experience and steam railway is not far away. A bit further afield are fantastic sweeping bays on the coast, and the Blue Flag beaches of Scarborough.

Buttercrambe Shepherd’s Hut is a unique and stylish retreat, perfect for a romantic city break with a difference.
