The Dreamer’s Hut is ideal for those looking for a unique experience whilst relaxing in the peace and tranquillity of the North York Moors National Park countryside. This National Park is renowned for its Dark Skies and at night the skies are often filled with the many constellations, which you can watch from the luxury of the wood fired hot tub, listening to the awakening owls. Beautifully presented inside and furnished to an exceptionally high standard, complete with a cosy wood burner for those chilly nights, the hut caters for your every need and includes a thoughtful basket of local delights to welcome you to your unique accommodation. Outside is the estate orchard with a seating area overlooking the rolling hills, dales and woodland of the North York Moors. All of your home comforts are found within this inspiring hut, including a luxurious king size bed with a deep mattress and high quality linen, a working kitchen, and a bathroom with the option of soaking in the bath or starting the day with a refreshing shower. The dining table folds out into a bunk bed sleeping an additional two children.

The historic hill top village of Hawnby is a designated Conservation Area of traditional stone and pantiles roof cottages, with the local pub just a short walk away. The area is also a walker’s paradise, with an enormous selection of footpaths and bridleways to choose from, including the nearby Inn Way and Cleveland Ways long distance paths. What could be more romantic than an escape to the country in a bespoke shepherd’s hut, enjoying a home cooked meal with a glass of wine out on the decking as the light fades and the colours of the sunset ebb across the sky.

Dreamer’s Hut is only 6 miles from Helmsley, one of Yorkshire’s finest market towns. This renowned market town is where the North York Moors and the Howardian Hills meet, offering fine historic views and countryside with a reputation for great Yorkshire hospitality. The market square is a meeting point for walkers, cyclists and locals alike. There are also many shops, cafés, eateries including Michelin starred restaurants, an open-air swimming pool, walled garden, castle, bird of prey centre, microbrewery, two abbey ruins and the stately home of Duncombe Park.

The Dreamer’s Hut is named after ’The Hawnby Dreamers’ - three local shepherds who in the mid-1700s, fell asleep whilst working in the fields on a hot day in the adjacent valley of Ladhill Ghyll, of which the hut overlooks. The shepherds awoke to discover they had each had the same vivid dream of spiritual awakening and being called to change their lives for the better. The three subsequently walked to Newcastle to hear the preaching of the famous John Wesley and converted to Methodism, bringing this faith back to Hawnby. Shop 1 mile, pub 100 yards and restaurant 5 miles.
