Thank you for your lovely review - please do come again soon!
We stayed for 2 nights in a quite wet October but don't let this put you off. The huts are brilliant and have a little log burner in there as well as facilities to do a bit of basic cooking. There are a few pubs near by, the Hollybush Inn at Greenhaugh which had a lovely wood fire, good beer and a good food menu. There are plenty of walks and fantastic scenery right on the doorstep of the huts as well as Kielder reservoir. Would highly recommend staying in one of these huts and I now see on the website they have a new addition to the shepherds huts so there are 3 in total. Looking forward to booking our next stay next summer with friends.
Thank you for providing some great feedback we do hope to see you again, this time without the rain!
We came across Hesleyside Huts while looking for accommodation for the Kielder Marathon weekend, and they were just what we needed while also giving us something a bit different to your normal weekend stay. We were given plenty of useful information from Anna before our stay to make sure everything went according to plan. Upon arrival at the hut there were lots of things that made us think "nice touch" - thanks! The hut itself is immaculately presented and is like something off the Amazing Spaces programme - it's small but every inch of space is put to good use. The bed makes for a good night's sleep (although take ear plugs if rain is forecast!) and the stove keeps things warm (even if we could do with more practice with fires!). A really unique place to stay in a stunning location.
Thanks for the feedback and we hope you did well in the marathon! Come again
We have just returned from Hesleyside Huts today that we booked through Canopy and stars.
The unique shepherds hut are made out of local wood from the estate and surrounding area and each bit of woodwork blows you away .
We have been glam ping before and enjoy being independent however we loved our breakfast arriving in a beautiful basket on the first morning containing gorgeous cooked breads , croissants , jams , butter , eggs , bacon ,sausages , fresh milk and fresh orange juice and it lasted us both mornings .
On arrival we had a gorgeous complimentary lemon drizzle cake . We we're recommended in the pack to visit eating places / bars which we did and they were smashing .
We walked into Bellingham village which was about 30 mins lea surely walk and visited the cheviot and that was small and quaint and we had food there too , well recommend it .
We drank at the Hollybush Inn ( please note only open in the day at weekend) at greenhaugh which was quaint with big old fire in but our favourite was the Pheasant at Falston which was an old fashioned pub in the middle of nowhere but the food and surroundings was divine .
The bed in Bracken Hut was the comfiest we have ever slept in and they are toasty warm with or without the stove blasting .
We went for the stars and we were lucky because we saw them and we will never forget how beautiful they are .
Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Heather hut for 4 nights in August and we had the most amazing time! The hut is set in the middle of a field, near the woods and the beautiful Hesleyside estate. The attention to detail was spotless, the hut itself was super cosy and the bed was extremely comfortable. We cannot recommend this place highly enough!
Thank you for your lovely comments - we're so glad you enjoyed yourselves, please do come again
Only one night, but one full of wild surprises and great comfort.
Where to start - the hut was little piece of heaven; crisp white linen, deep feather bed and fluffy towels, hot running water, and every comfort, from the beautiful china to the toasting fork and marshmallows.
It sits in an old English wood, with a view which includes the North Tyne Valley, and the mellow old house of Hesleyside, home of the hosts.
While the younger members of the party ran about with squeals of delight exploring all the cupboards and hideyholes, and the wonderful woodland, the grownups discovered how to light the pretty stove (wood, matches and firelighters provided) and how quickly the kettle boils for the first cup of tea.
Later, as the sun set, there was a fire to build in the firepit, and dinner eaten under a starry sky - Hesleyside is within the UK's first Dark Skies Reserve, and the children got to see the milky way for the first time in their lives, and to stare transfixed through the telescope provided!
Finally worn out by fresh air, good food, and exercise the family fell asleep - and woke to birdsong and a basket of local organic breakfast goods brought to the doorstep - milk, eggs, bacon, butter and warm fresh baked croissants.
Will be back soon.
thank you and do come and stay again with us
