East Witton Shepherd’s Hut

Welcome to the peace and privacy of our wildlife garden.

Our Shepherd’s Hut enjoys a private location in the quiet village of East Witton, which is nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

Our bespoke hideaway has been carefully designed with your comfort in mind. The cosy accommodation includes: 

  • Double bed
  • Shower room with toilet and basin.
  • All linen provided.
  • Kitchenette with kettle and toaster.
  • BBQ and furniture in the garden.

East Witton

East Witton is a beautiful old village in Lower Wensleydale and Coverdale, at the foot of Witton Fell and less than a mile from the River Cover and the River Ure.

In the centre of a wonderful walking area, you can easily walk to the ruins of Jervaulx Abbey, venture up onto the moors to find solitude and extensive views, or walk along the rivers with kingfishers and goosanders for company.

With great opportunities for birdwatching and wildlife, there are also quiet lanes for cycling – with immediate access to routes used on the 2014 Tour de France and the Tour of Yorkshire.

    Places to Eat

    We have simple catering facilities inside the hut,  but there are lots of options for good food on our doorstep.

    There is a BBQ outside available for your use. A small menu is available from Jackie to preorder homemade suppers, for example lasagne or steak pie and a choice of egg or bacon buns for breakfast.

    For a lunch or evening out, there is a fine dining hotel and restaurant 300 yards away. We also have a wonderful old pub serving real ales and home cooked food just a ten minute walk away.

    We’re always happy to help you with recommendations so please don’t hesitate to ask!

        Places to Visit

        In the village is The Blue Lion Hotel with flagged floors and candles; offering fine dining and wines.

        A ten minute walk across the fields to the river brings you to the Coverbridge Inn, a 16th century pub serving real ales and home cooked food.

        Half an hour by car will give you access to Upper Wensleydale and Swaledale, ten minutes in the opposite direction finds the lovely old market town of Masham.

        The horseracing town of Middleham is an hours walk where you’ll find Middleham Castle, the childhood home of Richard III. The town of Leyburn is five miles away and boasts two supermarkets shops and cafes.

          About Us…

          Our Shepherd’s Hut sits in the garden of No. 22.  Alan and myself have lived at No.22 for 25 years, originally running the Village Shop which is now a part-time community Post Office.

          My lifelong passion for nature eventually led to study and a degree in Environmental Conservation, the legacy being the creation of my wildlife garden…an ongoing project!

          Our village is steeped in history and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It was rebuilt in the early 1800’s around the large, attractive village green that you see today.

          We are delighted to be able to share a part of our haven and think you will love our Shepherd’s Hut. Please feel free to call us anytime on 07754 910480, email info@eastwittonshepherdshut.co.uk, or use the contact form below for further details.

          REMEMBER
          You are in a self-contained Hut that was designed for social-distancing! It is situated at the bottom of a garden in a sparsely populated village surrounded by huge skies, moorland, fields and riverbanks. We think you will be safe...its a great place to escape to in these difficult times.
