Weardale Retreat, with private patio, wood-fired hot tub, barbecue and firepit

General

  • Secluded shepherd’s hut with stunning views of the North Pennines
  • Half an hour’s drive from Durham; near a network of local footpaths
  • Private patio, woodfired hot tub, firepit, barbecue and ensuite

When you’re seeking solitude, the secluded shepherd’s hut at Newlands Hall is just the spot – wend your way to this working hill farm overlooking the dreamy dales of County Durham for memorable views and a private hot tub.

Inside, the accommodation is small but swish: it packs in an ensuite shower room and toilet, a double bed with bed linen and towels provided, and a working logburner. The compact kitchen area includes a fridge-freezer for keeping food fresh and a microwave for warming up meals, plus a private firepit and barbecue are just outside the hut on the outdoor patio area for alfresco evenings.

When it’s time to tour the countryside, there’s no need to remember where you’ve left the car keys – simply set off on strolls right from the site on the network of local footpaths running through the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There are ample attractive market towns, villages and cities to poke around in this part of the world as well – including Durham (30 minutes’ drive) – and the park’s close to Hamsterley (15 minutes) for forays in the county’s biggest forest by bike or on foot.

If you’re needing to run errands, the nearest town is Bishop Auckland (20 minutes).

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Recommended areas to roam in the local area include the high wild fells of Weardale and Teesdale. Get your hiking boots muddy in these parts of the Pennines, then swap them for clean shoes for strolls around the smart centre of Durham (half an hour).

This university city has a cathedral and castle to check out in the centre, but is also a top-notch spot for just meandering around the medieval streets.

Travel to the Killhope Lead Mining Museum (half an hour) to learn how the county got its riches in the 19th century and, once you’re back above ground, follow the nature trail in search of red squirrels.

Another intriguing place to visit is the Bowes Museum (35 minutes) for its selection of fine and decorative arts sourced from all across Europe. While the displays are generally aimed at adults, kids are also welcome – activities for young art aficionados are often organised here.

A spot that’s perhaps more suitable for small fry is Diggerland Durham (half an hour), an adventure park that allows visitors to drive real machinery.
