The Garden Shed
The Garden Shed, Old Forge York
A sumptuous former storehouse, The Garden Shed is a high-end romantic bolt hole designed perfectly for two. From intimate nights snuggled up in front of the cosy log burner. Or sociable evenings around the fire pit nestled in fluffy sheepskins. The Garden Shed oozes luxury and comfort, and is everything you could need for a romantic holiday for two. To add further indulgence, you can get homemade meals from the on-site honesty shop. So you won’t even need to cook!
The Garden Shed is the ultimate couples hideaway, perfect for spending quality time together. Add to that the romance of cobbled streets and river cruises only 8 miles away in the city of York. Or a hand in hand ramble over undulating moorland, there is plenty to find pleasure in. If you are considering tagging family or friends into your holiday, the boutique barn conversion named Next Door can sleep up to 5 guests. With sociable space for up to 8, it’s a wonderful way to bring family together.
The Garden Shed has been beautifully transformed into a boutique romantic retreat. With an open plan living, kitchen and dining space. Including a dining table which overlooks the garden through patio doors. And the separate bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The lavish and cosy interiors will make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door, so much so that you may never want to leave! Every detail has been considered, from organic toiletries to welcome hampers.
The Garden Shed benefits from two private outdoor spaces. From the patio doors, a private garden space with views. Complete with comfy chairs adorned with sheepskins and a fire pit to toast the complementary marshmallows. It is a ready made intimate evening just for two! In the bedroom you will find a stable door which leads to a private walled courtyard with bistro table and chairs. Catching the morning and evening sun, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast together or an evening meal.
Beyond The Garden Shed, guests have access to 1.5 acres of mature gardens. Explore secret paths, soothe your senses or enjoy a picnic just for two. You could even visit the ‘Barbaras’, their on-site hens.
The hosts of The Garden Shed have created a ‘25 mile map’ to share with you the best local producers and places to visit ‘off the beaten track’. So should you be able to drag yourself away from the comfort and luxury of The Garden Shed, it’s very easy to find things you may enjoy exploring.
The historical city of York is only 8 miles away, with many easy travel options to get there. A popular romantic destination, there is plenty to enjoy. Take a walk around the city walls, or treat your loved one to a starry eyed dinner cruise on the river. Hang on to each other at York Dungeons or indulge in York’s Chocolate Story.
For foodie lovers head to Malton, the food capital of Yorkshire! Hosting regular festivals and markets, it also houses an abundance of independent food producers.
