Extra Amenities


Peacefully set amidst rolling countryside on a 200-acre sheep farm, Ben’s Hut is the perfect property for couples and families who enjoy an adventure. Simple yet perfectly formed, Ben’s Hut offers cosy accommodation with a double bed and a shower room incorporated into the hut, so there’s no need to traipse across a field every time you want to go to the bathroom! There is a small kitchen area with a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and a fold-away dining table with chairs. Every tiny detail has been thought of by the owner, even down to the wool-based insulation, which keeps the hut warm and welcoming at any time of year.



Ben’s Hut sits naturally amongst the grounds of this working sheep farm, and it has a private parking space and decking area with table and chairs. The tranquil location makes this the perfect place to relax and unwind, and there are many footpaths and cycle routes nearby with excellent views over the landscape.

Situated on the Durham/Northumberland border, the property is ideally located for exploring the many attractions both counties have to offer. The historic city of Durham, with its boat trips and magnificent cathedral, and the market town of Barnard Castle, with its 12th-century castle, are both just a short drive away.

The award-winning Beamish Open Air Museum is just 13 miles away, and is well worth a visit. Newcastle and Gateshead offer an array of museums and art galleries, along with excellent shopping, all just 18 miles away. The breathtaking scenery of the Northumberland National Park is within a half hour’s drive, as is Hadrian’s Wall. A little further afield, there’s Alnwick Castle and Gardens, along with some glorious, unspoilt stretches of coastline about an hour’s drive away. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile
