Eastfield Farm Shepherd's Huts

10

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Peaceful farm glamping in the County Durham countryside
  • A quarter of an hour's drive from Seaham beach or Durham
  • Furnished shepherd's huts on a working sheep farm

Eastfield Farm Shepherd's Huts is a small-scale site in the grounds of East Field Farm, a rural spot within a quarter of an hour's drive of Durham city centre or the coast at Seaham, where there is a mix of sand and shingle. Surrounded by fields filled with grazing sheep and far-reaching rural views, this cosy option is close to lots of quiet local footpaths and country walks.

Each hut is an attractive wooden structure with private outdoor space and comfortable interiors. An ensuite shower and toilet are included in the unit, as are bedding, towels, tea and coffee making facilities, crockery and cutlery and a microwave. It's worth noting that there's not a fridge here, although there's space for a coolbox or similar if you'd like to bring your own. Long-life milk is provided.

The site is roughly half a mile from Haswell village centre, where local amenities like takeaways, a pharmacy, a pub and a newsagent's can be found.

Please note that site does not allow pets because of its location on a working sheep farm.

    Good location if planning to visit Beamish museum. Very safe site for children, the hut is equipped with everything you would need for your stay and presented to a very high standard. They also provide a bag full of outdoor sporting equipment for the children which is great and there is plenty of space for children to play. The hosts are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Definitely would stay again.

    Lovely location so near to Durham, really lovely place as well with everything we could need and so clean and tidy.

    the only thing that could have improved the hut was a small mini fridge for guests who may be staying longer than we did as it would be useful.
