The village of Buttercrambe is located in York and nestled amidst rolling green fields and serene countryside, offering a delightful retreat for guests seeking a taste of traditional English heritage. Its small population and close-knit community invites you to experience a peaceful and quiet escape and immerse yourself in its timeless beauty. It sits alongside the River Derwent, surrounded by peaceful scenes and beautiful wildlife, perfect for local walks, cycling and easy access to York (10 miles). The property is perfectly located within reach of the National Railway Museum (11 miles), York Minster (11 miles) and Jorvik Viking Centre (10 miles), and within easy access of the East Riding Coast (just over 30 miles).

This delightful shepherd's hut is located in the enchanting Aldby Gardens and is the perfect bolthole for a relaxing getaway.

The bedroom area has a double bed with TV, and on the other side there is a small kitchen, which is well equipped. Adjacent to the kitchen is the bathroom with walk-in shower.

A beautiful, literally secret, garden. We were surprised that all the buildings were for our exclusive use, much nicer than we expected. Every possible utensil was there for us and the shepherds hut was really comfortable. It was nice to be able to let the dog out in to the enclosed garden in complete safety. Thank you!

Lovely relaxing week at the secret garden. Fab facilities, all needs catered for much more than an average shepherds hut! Lovely attention to detail and personal welcome from Tracey and help if required. A peaceful stay in an amazing setting with birds and wildlife for company. Thank you to Tracey and Andrew.
