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



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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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
