Tranquil & Relaxing, switch off from the world
What an amazing weekend, from start to finish couldn?t have been better, fantastic location, amazing hosts. Every detail thought of in the hut and facilities, from a lovely little welcome pack, cafetiere for your morning coffee through to a gas BBQ to make the most of the wonderful country side. The bed is very comfy and the fluffiest towels provided. Situated on the edge of a lovely little village with fab Indian Restaurant/Take away and Fish & Chips just a 5 minute walk away. We ordered a curry for Friday evening, collected it and enjoyed it sat outside as the sun went down. The coast is a very picturesque drive away so we made the most of it and spent a day in Whitby, calling at the farm shop next door to the Hut on the way back, to get a selection of their produce for an evening meal on the BBQ. The most relaxing break we have ever had. George the Sheep & Aggie the Goat are extremely welcoming and make great neighbours. We can?t wait to return
