If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and want somewhere peaceful and calm where you can reflect and relax, The Shepherd’s Retreat is for you. Situated in the village of Irton, The Shepherd’s Retreat is based on a working farm overlooking paddocks and grazing fields (well away from the noise of the farmyard!) You may well spot our resident barn owl, or some of the deer and hares that live in the vicinity, and around Easter time there could be some ewes with new born lambs in the field adjacent. All year round this is a beautiful destination where you can soak up the changing colours of the seasons. The Shepherds Retreat is fenced to include your own private garden area with an outdoor bath, fire pit and BBQ area. It really is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway. It is a beautiful place to sit out on an evening and relax and watch the stars, or toast some marshmallows over the fire pit. The Shepherd’s Retreat is a hand-crafted bespoke shepherd’s hut that whilst compact, maximises space inside with clever design and well thought out storage space. The bathroom is inside the hut so no traipsing outside in the middle of the night! In the field next door to the Shepherd’s Retreat, there are the ruins of a medieval Manor House dating back to the 15th century, privately owned by your hosts who encourage you to take a look and marvel at the history.
Irton is a quaint Yorkshire village neighbouring larger Seamer village which is less than a 10-minute walk away across the neighbouring field, where you will find a welcoming local pub as well as a popular fish and chip shop and village shop. Scarborough is only 4 miles away, within minutes guests can be sitting on the beach or paddling in the sea. There is a choice of two bays to explore; the South Bay has all the hustle and bustle of a traditional seaside resort, with donkeys, amusements and pleasure steamers. Whereas the North Bay is much quieter, with a long promenade to stroll along, and at the end you will reach the Sea Life Centre. Scarborough also has a 12th Century castle, which has breath taking views across the coastline, with many events around the year. Scarborough has much offer including the famous Scarborough Spa, Peasholm Park with oriental gardens and boating lake, Alpamare water park, as well as one of the largest open-air theatres in Europe. There is something for everyone.
You also have the unspoilt beauty of Cayton Bay within easy reach, with a golden sandy beach. Further along the coast you have the neighbouring coastal destinations of Bridlington, Filey, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Flamborough and Bempton to discover. Or inland you have the wonderful North York Moors to explore, with moorland and ancient woodlands with miles of walking and cycling trials.
