Read what our Guests say after their Stay at Waingates Farm Huts

Thank you once more for yet another stay in one of your fabulous huts! As always every little detail has been considered. We have had such a fabulous relaxing time in our own little world. Star gazing on a clear night is always a highlight. Peddero has been a much needed break from reality! As always, will be back next year!

Peddero - December 2019

Thank you for an amazing stay in the Peddero Hut! This is our second trip to Waingates and have enjoyed it just as much as our first trip - if not more. The hut is equipped to a very high standard and the little added touches made it very homely, we will be back again!

Peddero - October 2019

Wow - just WOW!! We have had an amazing stay. The hot tub is a dream, cooking on the pizza oven was fun. The igluhut is a complete luxury, from the flowers on the table, the chocolates, fabulous toiletries, the bed is so comfy and lying looking out of the window is so relaxing - only been here two nights but feel like we've had a week away. You have truly created a little bit of heaven. 

Peddero - July 2019

10/10 So peaceful - the little extra touches made it feel like a home away from home. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay here more. The bed is amazingly comfy, and we don't want to leave. Thank you for the best, most blissful stay. We'll be recommending to all our family and friends and hope to come back next year!

Peddero - June 2019

Thank you so much! Our stay has been fantastic, what a gorgeous little retreat for two. We had some much needed R&R and have been blown away by the attention to detail, from arriving, experiencing our igluhut and a little slice of "English" garden.

Peddero - June 2019

My husband surprised me with this fab hideaway for my 55th Birthday, and WOW he succeeded, such a beautiful setting, so quiet and very well thought out accommodation, we have had a truly romantic break away. Thank you for this piece of heaven in Yorkshire, we will be sure to recommend. 

Peddero - May 2019

A little bit of countryside heaven! What an amazing time we've had staying in Peddero. It was a pleasure being the first couple to experience staying in an igluhut. How lucky!! We will definitely be back. You most definitely have a little gem of a place, Thank you!

Peddero - April 2019

Matthew and Emma, you have got this place absolutely spot on! After a couple of absolutely crazy weeks, this is EXACTLY what we needed! The whole experience has been idyllic. We arrived in the pouring rain and howling wind and the hut was the perfect place to cosy up in front of the wood burner with mugs of mulled wine and "The Holiday" DVD. We woke to a severe stillness and beautiful sunrise. Fab day out at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Deer Park followed by an evening in the (HOT!!) Tub in the pouring rain - Splendid! We cannot wait to return in the Summer to make use of the BBQ and pizza oven. The festive trimming up was the icing on the cake! Thank you!! 

Eddero - December 2018

We came for my wifes' Birthday, we wanted a unique special experience and this was it! The hut itself was perfect, so much character and charm making it really unforgettable. The woodburning stove is a great touch and great for a cosy winters evening. And of course, the hot tub... great fun getting the fire going, and then  having a long, relaxing soak under the stars! Just Magic. Thanks to Matthew, a great host. We will be back!

Eddero - December 2018

We chose this quaint location for our "mini moon" and it did not disappoint. The Hut has been very cosy and has provided us with the perfect place to relax after a busy few days. Your hospitality has been brilliant and you provide guests with everything you promise that makes staying here feel like home. We will definitely recommend staying to others and would love to come back ourselves. Thanks for a great stay. 

Tain - November 2018

WOW!! This fantastic little hut totally exceeded our expectations. When stumbling across Waingates Farm Huts on the internet I just knew we had to come here. Everything is super stylish and cosy! Nothing will compare to this gorgeous little retreat. Your hospitality has been amazing and so helpful. we really couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you for a wonderful stay. 

Tain - November 2018

We had a perfect weekend that ended with a proposal in the hot tub under the stars! We had so much fun building fires and relaxing - it was exactly what we needed. This place is truly magical. Thank you so much for everything!

Eddero - October 2018

What more could you ask for with a cosy log fire, beautiful views and uniquely funky hot tub on your doorstep? I've never felt more at home - away from home. A perfect stay during those cold Autumn nights with memories to take away for life! we loved every moment!

Tain - October 2018

Congratulations on absolutely nailing it! We booked Yain for our 5th Wedding Anniversary - The year of "WOOD". It couldn't have been more fitting for our celebrations - A wooden Shepherds Hut, with wood fired bath and surrounding Wood! We arrived in a storm and it felt the perfect place to lock ourselves away - the next day, the skies broke and we enjoyed a perfect evening with blue skies and clear starry night, we don't want to leave!

Yain - September 2018

We've stayed in a hut before but this one exceeded our expectations. Absolutely spotless inside, equipped with everything you could possibly need. Loved the robes, the soft towels and bed linen. The fresh flowers and chocolates when we arrived were a lovely touch. We wanted a weekend break for peace and quiet and relaxation and we certainly got that. The hot tub was perfect and we enjoyed a bottle of bubbles in the pouring rain whilst in it watching the red kites above us. These huts are perfect for a romantic break with no distractions. We've already been recommending to our friends! We literally couldn't fault a single thing. Thank you so much for giving us a perfect weekend of memories, I'm sure we will be back. 

Eddero - August 2018

A wonderful way to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary, we have loved staying in the beautiful hut and found it much more spacious than we expected, very comfortable, clean and with everything we needed provided. We enjoyed lovely meals at the 'Hideaway Kitchen' and 'The Malt Shovel'. Also 'The Roecliffe Ramble' is a lovely walk. The hot tub was fantastic to use also - we hope to visit again soon!

Yain - August 2018

I knew from looking on the website that the hut was going to be beautiful, but it really didn't show just how cosy and well thought out this little gem is! A lovely friendly welcome, fantastic attention to detail, idyllic location, gorgeous decor, lots of little extra touches...need I go on?! Will definitely recommend and hopefully return in the future. Many thanks for a perfect few days away. 

Eddero - August 2018

Wow, the ultimate camping / glamping experience! Attention to detail is really impressive. Loved the experience of relaxing in the Dutch Hot Tub with the sweet scent of wood smoke from the roaring fire pit whilst staring up at the stars above. Enjoyed the local walks, as well as watching the Red Kites soar above the wood across the field. On the last evening we had an amazing encounter with four badgers outside their sett in the wood as we walked back from The Crown Inn. Thank you for three lovely days that we will remember for a long time to come and for making us feel most welcome.

Tain - August 2018

Where to start, we came with high expectations and have not been disappointed. The Hut is amazing, love the little touches, chocolates, flowers etc.. What an amazing place to decompress, soak up the surrounding and celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. This place is so good for your mental health to wind down and appreciate life. Thank you.

Yain - August 2018

I had no idea I was coming here. The two nights that we have spent here was booked for my Birthday by my partner. So when we arrived, I actually cried. What a magical place this is. From the setting, the welcome, the amenities, the attention to detail - to the company. I have been truly spoiled here and I shall go home with fond memories of bubbles in the hot tub, stargazing in a cloudless night sky, Coldplay, watching the kites and buzzards, fab food and glorious fire pit. We have raved about this place to family and friends from the moment we arrived and I simply can't wait to return. Thank you so much. 

Eddero - August 2018

We've had a wonderful weekend here at Yain celebrating our 2nd Wedding Anniversary without our kids! We have been super impressed with immaculate and thoughtfully designed the hut is, cosy and luxurious. The hot tub is amazing and so relaxing! Despite the changeable weather we ate outside and enjoyed the peace and quiet surrounded by a sea of white flowers. Perfect!

Yain - August 2018

A brilliant two night stay out in the Yorkshire Countryside. We'd planned to visit local restaurants for dinner, but there was no need at all as with an easy to use BBQ, fire pit and Hot Tub we could enjoy our own little Private Paradise!

Tain - August 2018

A truly wonderful place, perfect for a weekend get away. Idyllic setting, the hut is really well thought out in terms of both layout and all the home comforts you can think of. Wood Fired hot tub a real novelty. Peaceful, very quiet and the added benefit of high 20's temperature! We will be recommending to everybody!

Eddero - July 2018

We arrived on Friday a young woman celebrating a new job and a man in denial he's just turned 40, by Sunday nothing had changed!.... except a perfect weekend of al-fresco dining and bathing, late night chatting, drinking and relaxing. Had a great time exploring the area and realising we most definitely will be back!

Tain - August 2018

Glamping at it's best! We have had a fabulous two nights here for our 8th Wedding Anniversary. Everything was perfect and the amazing weather just topped off the weekend. Top quality Shepherds Hut with great attention to detail. 

Eddero - July 2018

Well this is a step up from camping! I'm never going back to a tent now, you have thoroughly spoilt us! The Shepherds' Hut is so cosy and has the added touches of luxury which are well received  We will certainly be back.

Yain - July 2018

Thank you for the perfect stay! Came away as a Birthday treat for my boyfriend and we couldn't have asked for a better location or host. Matthew was fantastic with helping me make it extra special for our arrival, setting he hut up with a Birthday banner and balloons. The hut itself has everything you could need and more. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful and the hot tub, BBQ and fire pit just added to the whole experience. We will definitely be back again to explore the other huts!

Eddero - July 2018

We booked this as a little get away to the countryside and it out did all of our expectations, we loved it! The place is beautiful and facilities are fab. Spent most of the time in the hot tub regardless of rain. Spent two days laughing, singing, dancing, eating and drinking. Thank you very much! We will be back!

Tain - June 2018

We've had a lovely couple of nights in Eddero. Everything has been perfect. The Hut is lovely and comfortable; the hot tub and fire pit are relaxing and mesmerising in the evening and the surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. The weather has not disappointed either and has given us the chance to explore the local area and enjoy al fresco eating and drinking. It's been everything I hoped for and I have a very happy husband - pleased with his surprise Birthday present!

Eddero - June 2018

We loved our stay in Eddero, the hut is set in a beautiful location, it is furnished to a high standard and provided everything we could have wished for! 

Eddero - May 2018

I booked the weekend as a surprise for my boyfriends Birthday - The perfect place to escape to, so relaxing and peaceful - we'll be back - Thank you to Emma and Matthew for creating such a perfect place.

Eddero - May 2018

We have had an absolutely fantastic time here, in this beautiful hut! Such a relaxing environment and atmosphere... Total Relaxation. We parked our car on Friday and it hasn't moved since. A lovely walk into Boroughbridge, would definitely recommend.

Yain - May 2018

Thank you for a fabulous stay. We have had glorious weather. A hilarious couple of hours trying to make pizza (my advice is to bring extra dough in case it goes wrong) that tasted pretty good even if it looked terrible! And topped it all off with a dip in the hot tub. We loved the peace and quiet and even spotted a deer.

Yain - May 2018

Matthew and Emma, Thank you once again for another amazing few days away. We have fallen in love with this place. It's beauty and privacy are one of a kind and we will most certainly be back for a third visit. Everything was perfect and that is testament to all of your hard work and little added touches.

Yain - March 2018

Thank you so much for creating a beautiful and unique little space that is perfect for relaxation. The attention to detail can't be missed in this lovely hut. We have had a great stay and particularly loved the hot tub. We will definitely come back to stay again and would highly recommend to friends and family

Eddero - March 2018

Thank you so much for the loveliest weekend, it was just what the doctor ordered! Accommodation is beautiful, with such attention to detail. We got lucky with wonderful weather, enjoyed lovely walks, saw hares, deers and kites. Sat in the hot tub looking at the stars. Just Perfect! We're heading home to our 3 young children feeling relaxed and batteries fully charged! Will most definitely be back. Thank you again!

Yain - March 2018

What a wonderful place to spend New Year ! The Shepherds' Hut was perfect and had everything we could possibly have wanted for a luxurious stay. The hot tub was even better than we imagined. It took a while to get hot, but once it did it was steaming, it was glorious. We had clear skies and a bright moon - what a way to spend New Years Eve. You've helped create a lovely happy memory for us. Thank you so much and Happy New Year!

Yain - December 2017

We have had an absolutely amazing weekend in this beautiful place. It is so peaceful and has given us some much needed 'RnR'! Every single detail has been given the utmost thought - everything is perfect! Thank you so much!

Yain - November 2017

Thank you for a lovely stay, we have been to a few places with Shepherds' Huts but this is our favourite! Beautiful views, loved the facilities and perfect location. The hot tub and pizza oven were our highlights. We had a drink at the Crown Inn and it is a lovely pub with great service. We also went to Brigham Rocks and Ripon and would recommend  Lots of nice walks locally too! Thanks again for a lovely peaceful stay!

Yain - October 2017

Simply Amazing! We have had the most relaxing weekend here celebrating our 10th Anniversary and everything was perfect! You have created an amazing place that is cosy, yet spacious, classic yet luxurious and calm yet exciting. Matthew was especially accommodating and welcoming on our arrival. We also had an incredible evening making tasty pizzas from our dough and sitting under the stars in the hot tub, listening to nothing but wildlife. We even saw our first shooting star! (3 of them!!!) Will most definitely be back and excited to see how this place develops. Good Luck and Thank you!

Yain - October 2017

Matthew and Emma, We had an amazing couple of days here- the hut is perfect and every detail that has been thought through is noticed and makes a huge difference. The hot tub and beautiful surroundings are just lovely. Matthew couldn't do anymore for us - much appreciated. We will be back for sure.

Yain - October 2017

Whilst I write this I am sat in this most cosy bed with the doors open enjoying the breeze and the sun, it's glorious. We've toasted marshmallows on our fire pit, cooked our supper in the incredible pizza oven, eaten al fresco and slept like babies. I'm so pleased my sister brought me here as a treat. We shall never forget it and we will be back, Thank you!

Tain - September 2017

We really enjoyed staying here, the hut is very unique and all the finishing touches are beautiful. Absolutely loved the hot tub and pizza oven! Perfect way to celebrate our first Wedding Anniversary! We will be recommending your Shepherds' Huts to our friends and plan to come back again!

Yain - September 2017

Emma & Matthew - Yain was the perfect place for our mini moon! Thank you for letting us check in so early and for the lovely 'Just Married' Touches! We really enjoyed the chocolates and fresh flowers, these little touches make the stay so much more special. We loved using the fire pit, hot tub and BBQ and we thought the decor of the hut was beautiful - we had everything we needed. We tried out two of your recommendations and had a lovely meal at The Crown Inn pub and Lauren had the most amazing massage by Leanne - highly recommend to others. Thank you for the warm welcome followed by complete privacy, hope to come back again!

Yain - September 2017

Couldn't put into words how lovely and relaxing our stay was - very sad to be leaving and we will definitely come back. A truly wonderful experience being here... 

Tain - August 2017

Thank you so much for thinking of everything we would need for a relaxing and calm stay! Such a lovely change from the hustle of London. So wonderful to hear silence and smell fresh air- and the fire pit and pizza oven were amazing. 

Tain - August 2017

Thank you so much for a wonderful couple of days. The hut is absolutely beautiful and feels luxurious. The little finishing touches and detail make it more amazing. We really enjoyed looking at the stars in the hot tub of an evening. We will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone! 

Yain - August 2017

Our stay was faultless! You have thought of every little touch - well done guys. By far our best stay in the UK. Next time we're going to bring some zebras and hook up Tain and trek back home. Thanks again - The Guys from South Africa
