The Shepherd's Hut is a really unique place to stay and a fantastic experience. It's clean, beautifully decorated and well kitted out. It's surroundings of a private patio and pond are idyllic - Grant (August '18)

Hut in the hollow provided a sweet little slice of tranquility, among the wildlife. High quality and comfortable in the hut. The patio/garden area with the pond is great for eating out on at breakfast and sitting looking at the stars at night. Very impressed - Kerry (August '18)

Perfect quiet and secluded accommodation with bags of character and coziness, comfortable bed, spacious shower, bathrobes, generous towels, tea, milk and coffee provided. Easy to get into town on foot, parking on the drive of the house is very useful as it’s on a busy road. We…

Great little hut, really cosy and lots of little touches. Having the log burner is great and gets the hut seriously warm in no time. Good location for exploring Durham. It's about a 20 minute walk down into the city centre, great going but harder work on the way back due to the h…

This tiny cottage sits at the back of the owners’ private walled garden next to a small pond and arbor. It has every comfort and not a thing more. It is warm and inviting. The bed is comfy and the shower is bigger than I would have expected for such a small space. Our stay was ou…

The ‘hut’ is a perfect getaway in the lovely City of Durham. The secluded garden area is a real bonus, the bed is comfy, it has a good shower and the kitchenette has everything you need. We didn’t have the stove on but imagine it making for a cosy winter/autumn stay. Would recomm…

Kathy & I run Old Cinema Launderette in Durham, England. It’s a Launderette/Bar/Venue. Nothing unusual there then. The Hut in the Hollow, a luxurious Shepherd’s Hut lies in its own little garden with a pond. It’s a bit quirky, it’s a bit romantic, it’s very self contained. Com…
