My Booking

Before making a booking with us we are a small holding of animals, our chickens do roam free through the day and may pop over to the huts. They are very friendly and won't harm you, and may leave you a few eggs for your breakfast.

Springwood Shepherd Huts Information


The huts are hand built by the owners and a team of master craftsmen. Everything about them has been designed to provide the best in comfort inside and traditional looks outside, to give you the best glamping experience possible. As you walk through the main door you reach a fully equipped, fitted kitchen area with two induction hobs, a microwave/oven, fridge with a small freezer, toaster, kettle, country style sink and all the cutlery, pots and pans you should ever need. There's two beautiful breakfast bar stools to enjoy your breakfast or even sit by the log burner. To the right is a king size bed, with Egyptian cotton linen, duvet and pillows, there's also a smart TV on a swivel mount so you can view it from all around the hut. At the end of the bed is a cosy sofa facing the cast iron log burner, but don't worry you'll never be cold as there's also underfloor heating throughout the whole hut to keep you warm. Looking to the left from the main door is a fully equipped bathroom with a shower cubicle and a mains shower, sink, toilet, heated towel rail and amazingly soft towels and complementary toiletries on arrival. Storage hasn't been forgotten either, with storage space for hanging your clothes, and an iron and ironing board included. Saving the best until last, outside you're treated to seating beside a fire pit, looking out onto the fields where our Hebridean sheep and Alpaca's grazing. The fire pit can be used as a BBQ and parking is to the side of your hut. So whether you want to escape from it all and do nothing but enjoy peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings or if you want to be out and about enjoying York's attractions, it's all here. * Please note we do not allow any stag or hen parties *

We are a family run business running the Shepherd Huts. We have owned this land for 5 Years, we bought it as a agricultural 13 acre field. We wanted to build some stables for our horses which were in livery nearby. So, the adventure began we obtained planning permission to build the stables, arena and the agricultural building which you see to the left of your huts near the woods. The horses moved in and we wanted more animals, so we bought Hebridean Sheep and had some lambs. We now have sheep they manage our paddocks as well as Casper the large Grey horse, 1 little Shetland ponies Candy Floss and also several Hens who may lay you some eggs. 9 female alpacas who rotate around in our fields In 2018 we needed to utilise the land better and decided to build some holiday accommodation our hand-built Luxury Shepherd Huts. We do not live on the site but are frequently around caring for our animals and walking our dogs. We are happy to help with any enquires or to just say 'Hello'
