A tranquil and quirky Shangri-La, Karen has transformed the Shed into a hidden gem, using luxury yet homely interior design. Staying here encourages guests to switch off as you are secluded in nature, at The Garden Shed it is just the two of you with no distractions from the outside world.

Cosy nights in front of the log burner and fire pit are a must. Even in January, guests normally enjoy their first morning cup of tea sat outside listening to the bird song. We recommend a pyjama breakfast in your private garden. Cold mornings are even better because you can light the fire pit again, sit in comfy chairs on sheepskins and wrap yourself up in a blanket.  We provide everything you need (yup marshmallows, real hot chocolate & milk) so just pack those pyjamas and your favourite tipple.

Hot Chocolate

On arrival you will feel instantly at home because of the warm welcome Karen gives all of her guests. If you are celebrating a special event, Karen will help you make this extra special.  You will be greeted by a welcome hamper with a seasonal bakery treat, fresh eggs from our hens, fruit, milk, tea and coffee. You then have a choice of locally pressed apple juice or locally brewed beer. We have a milk man who delivers a range of products and newspapers six days a week. Every Tuesday we have a delivery of organic fruit and vegetable from a farm eight miles away. These services are available for guests to use. This is your perfect retreat, with its own secluded garden and absolutely everything you need. When you stay here, your holiday starts as soon as you step inside.

  • This little gem is magical, a real home from home. Karen is a superb host and really makes you feel welcome from the start. The little gestures around the house to personalise it was a lovely touch. The gardens are fabulous and there’s so many places to explore. A truly wonderful place to stay, made even better by Karen going that extra mile. WONDERFUL 5 stars all around X

  • The Garden Shed is an excellent place to stay offering comfortable accommodation in a lovely setting (both within the host’s garden and the village of Sand Hutton). Karen has an eye for detail in providing for guests’ needs and was provided for any additional requirements (in our case, the things we needed to clean our car).
