Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, on a working farm, on the outskirts of the village of Burton Fleming, this contemporary shepherd’s hut has been beautifully furnished inside and out to provide couples with an idyllic holiday residence. With Blue Texel’s heart-warming wood burner, there’s a cosy ambience regardless of the time of year, but the real treasure to this hut is its location – just 5 miles to the beach, Scarborough and the North York Moors National Park to the north, the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the historic city of York to the west, there’s a wealth of attractions and activities to try in the area. A welcome addition to our luxury accommodation has been the ’Lambing Shed’, a large and airy rustic kitchen/dining room. Your home away from home, it provides everything you could need to enhance your stay and is stocked daily with your inclusive continental breakfast, but has all the facilities for you to cook a ’full English’. Just let us know you want to upgrade your breakfast, (at an additional cost), and we’ll have all the ingredients ready for you. The hand built kitchen is fitted with a tumble dryer, two fridges and a cooking range for you to prepare the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner. For the budding master chefs, we have an outdoor pizza oven to cook their fabulous creations in and wow fellow diners. The dining area has a large table and benches covered in soft, luxurious fleeces for your comfort, and should you forget any essentials, our new ’corner shop’ has basics and treats to buy, saving you a trip out to the shops.
For art enthusiasts, the Yorkshire Wolds are the inspiration behind some of David Hockney’s most-loved artwork, and if you’d like to try it yourself, the dramatic Yorkshire coastline would make for a fantastic painting, so be sure to bring your own canvas and brushes. The North York Moors is a walker’s delight, and even cyclists are catered for with the on-site bike store.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing like returning to a crackling fire and a glass of wine, or better yet, a dip in the hot tub! The owners, who live adjacent, are happy to provide a free continental breakfast during your stay. Beach 5 miles. Shop on-site, pub ¼ mile, restaurant 4 miles. The Blue Texel can be booked together with The Lincoln Longwool (UK2065) and The Swaledale (UK2067) to accommodate up to 6 guests.
