[Press Trip] We were gifted a complimentary stay at Hornington Shepherd Huts, as always my opinions are 100% my own.
This was my first glamping trip of the year and I hadn’t realised how much I had missed glamping. If you have never tried it out, then you are missing a treat. Staycations are still pretty big in the UK, so if you are looking for somewhere a little unique and different, then I can highly recommend staying at one of the Shepherd Huts at Hornington Manor.
Getting there is pretty easy, we booked a taxi which we found on the Hornington Manor website. It took around 20 minutes from York train station and cost around £20, which I didn’t think was too bad at all. Each of the Shepherd Huts bring something new and all have different themes. We stayed in the White Princess hut which is inspired by Elizabeth of York.
I absolutely loved our hut and the overall design, it was very much my style and one that I would have booked myself. We were also gifted a little package for breakfast and a bottle of Horningtons own gin which I can confirm was delish. There were also some raspberry and champagne marshmallows from the Marshmallowist which came in handy as we had a our very own little firepit outside – which Gareth was super happy about so as you can imagine, we toasted our marshmallows on the evening and they were some of the best I have had in a long time.
In terms of food etc, there is a fully equipped kitchen, however, we took a disposable barbeque with us, which was such a good choice. We live in a 7th floor apartment so we don’t get to do this very often. If you did want to go out for dinner, there is a list of places that Hornington has recommended on their website – so go and check them out.
If you are looking for a glamping adventure, I couldn’t recommend this place enough. Especially, if you live in a big city, the peace and quiet was well needed. All you literally hear are the sheep haha! Also, if you are looking to get married anywhere, the Hornington Manor also has a stunning wedding and reception area. It’s definitely a must-see.
