Take the path through the woods and discover ‘The Woodland Hut'. Nestling in a secluded clearing of peaceful woodland, the hut overlooks open fields and hedgerows. The woods are home to a variety of native birds and visited by rabbits, deer and pheasants. A barn owl often makes an appearance in the evenings and early morning, swooping silently in between the trees. Situated in the heart of Yorkshire's Nature Triangle, the hut is close to the stunning East Yorkshire coastline, the rolling hills of the Wolds and the historic towns of Beverley and York.

The cosy hut, which sleeps up to 2 adults, or a family with 2 young children, was handcrafted by Kevin Lordan at The Yorkshire Hut Company, using sustainable materials. The walls, inside and out, are lined with FSC accredited timber and insulated with sheep's wool. Argon-filled, double glazed windows and a wood burning stove keep the hut snug and warm. It has mains electricity and water.

The hut has a comfy double bed, fitted with 100% cotton sheets and microfibre pillows and duvet. There is an additional three quarter-sized bunk bed, suitable for up to two small children. The compact kitchen is well equipped and the en-suite shower room has a state of the art composting toilet, electric shower, washbasin and fluffy bath and hand towels.

Relax in the Mexican hammock, gazing up at the magnificent, wide-open skies, or snuggle up by the bijou wood burning stove inside the hut. Cook over the barbeque/fire pit in the woods, or use the induction hob and microwave in the fully equipped kitchen. The Woodland Hut is the perfect getaway for people who want to be outdoors but also like the convenience and home comforts.

You will receive a hamper of local produce, eggs from our own hens, luxury bedding, towels and skincare products and an unlimited supply of firewood and charcoal (all included in the price below).

Prices range from £107-£127 per night for the first two nights (two nights minimum stay) and reduced rates for additional nights.
