This magical small home stands in the heart of nature on our award-winning, environmentally friendly farm. Lovingly hand-crafted it has an en-suite, kitchen, underfloor heating and wood stove.

In a secluded young orchard, overlooking an organic sheep pasture, this is a very special shepherd’s hut at wildlife-friendly Hunting Hall Farm. Snuggle into the fairy-tale curtained bed dressed with organic bed linen or curl up before the ‘hobbit’ wood burning stove. Listen to the stillness of the star studded evening and discover something magical!

Close to Lindisfarne and stunning coastal castles there’s so much to see, but take time to explore our story-book traditional farm. Stroll past flowers and wild areas, tall willows and alder, and sit by the pond to watch dragon flies and dream…

Read more about The Hunting Hall Shepherd's Hut

Follow a winding path through the tall grasses, flowers and fruit trees of a young orchard to our beautiful shepherd’s hut. Carefully created by local craftsmen, this is a luxurious little home in the heart of nature. With a small shower en-suite, fully-equipped kitchen, electric radiator and underfloor heating, you’ll have everything you need for a toasty-warm, very special stay. Pull up a comfy chair before the Hobbit wood burning stove or cosy into feather bedding dressed with scrumptious organic cotton percale linen. 

In the kitchen you’ll find a full sized oven, two ring halogen hob, microwave, ceramic sink and full sized fridge with ice box – everything you need to design dinner for two. The shower room has washbasin, heated towel rail, toilet and a shower fed from the large hot water tank with immersion heater – ensuring there is oodles of hot water.

Birds foot trefoil, oxeye daisies and wild carrot are scattered in the grass between young fruit trees where the hut stands. This is the Croft, once the paddock where the Victorian farmer kept his horse, with a shallow stream at one end. Wildlife passes through this still haven; hare, deer, fox and badger. Sit quietly surrounded by birdsong and the murmur of the gentle running stream. Beyond the orchard is the Pond Field where Tom grazes his flock of organic sheep, including rare breed handsome Teeswater ewes with comical dreadlocks. Stroll around the field footpath that leads to a wild pond with a bird hide and small dipping platform where you can sit and watch dragon flies flit between the reeds.

Hunting Hall is a picture-book farm. You may see a sow with her piglets playing in a strawy pen, geese waddling down to the small stream and hens clucking around the barns. Two rescue donkeys, Freddie and Jamie, graze in the paddock with Ella and Barley the goats. Our small family farm has won many awards for looking after the environment and a farm trail helps you explore some of our work for wildlife. 

Embracing our green ethos, the shepherd’s hut is a well-insulated, energy efficient little home running on green electricity. We’ve tried to keep it local; joiners Scott and Scott from Derek Allan, Belford, enthusiastically and skilfully brought our imaginings to life, aided by other local craftsmen, and a great Douglas Fir was felled for our chassis at Abby St Bathans. We’ve used beautiful environmentally-friendly paints and oils; Farrow and Ball, Osmo and even a recycled New Life emulsion, and carefully chosen organic cotton towels and bed linen. We want our shepherd’s hut to sit gently in the environment.

A holiday at Hunting Hall offers a wonderful diverse landscape to explore. The Holy Island Causeway, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is only five miles away and there are long stretches of deserted sandy beaches with the dramatic coastal castles of Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Warkworth and Dunstanburgh. Inland, towards the Cheviot Hills, the countryside becomes much wilder and there are some breathtaking walks through valleys and over heather topped hillsides. Northumberland has bustling market towns, picturesque villages, stately homes and museums. Very close to the farm there are some hidden gems; discover the gentle beauty of Cuthbert's Cave or walk through the huge old trees of Kyloe Woods, just a mile from the shepherd's hut.
