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.
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 and 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.
