In the Upper North Tyne Valley, in the area of Tarset amongst acres of wild fells, meadows and woodlands are Mongolian Yurts (or Gers), a reclaimed wooden Bothy, a most idyllic Shepherd's hut with its own hot tub plus a new treehouse yurt! Each accommodation is set in its own wild secluded spot, overlooking the stunning valley.

The Treehouse Yurt, 10 foot high up in the Scots Pine trees with a glass wall for maximum views over the stunning forest will amaze you. A suspended rope bridge will take you from this yurt to a crows nest where you can stargaze to your heart's content. Inside the yurt, there is a unique four-poster bed made from Scots Pine, a cookstove plus other unique features!

Prices for the treehouse yurt start from £150 for a single night to £630 for a week's stay. 

The 3 handcrafted, bespoke, fully insulated ground floor Yurts sleep 4-6 and have a window to see the stars and the changing seasons. Sit around the firebowl on the decking and take in the breathtaking views or relax and unwind in a hammock. The interiors are all slightly different depending on the Yurt but all have a luxurious feel with reclaimed furniture, recycled woodburning stoves and organic fairtrade rugs and sheepskins. The sleeping accommodation in each yurt may vary slightly, some having reclaimed wood king sized beds, handcrafted four poster beds but all ensuring a good night sleep. Choose Merle or Brock for a luxurious Scandinavian hot tub style bath! 

£150 for a single night with reductions for 3 nights or more and a weeks stay costing £560.

Corbie's Shepherd's Hut is perfect for a romantic stay. Inside is a woodburning stove, king sized bed and a small pullout double bed for a little one or two, fully equipped kitchen, its own hot water supply and lighting by candlelit. Outside there is a firepit, quirky wood compost loo and a new Hikki Scandinavian hot tub bath, big enough for 2 adults and 2 small children! Perfect for a spot of stargazing!

Prices start at £150 a night, with reductions for 2 nights or more and a week's stay costing £525. (You are welcome to pitch a tent alongside to accommodate extra guests, please enquire for prices.)

The Bonny Shiel is an antique original shepherd's hut that sleeps 2+2 therefore suitable for a romantic getaway for 2 or a young family. Enjoy warming yourself around the wood burning stove inside or around the fire pit outside. Take delight in the antique touches including brass wall mounted candlesticks whilst being cosy in the soft furnishings. Children will love the mini yurt outside, their own private play area whilst adults will love the wood fired hikki bath.
