Harvest Hut offers weekend getaway from city life
A brand new glamping facility is being launched this month where guests will be able to sleep underneath the stars and re-engage with nature.
Carole and Matthew Short, farmers near Rosehearty in Aberdeenshire, have lovingly transformed an old mill hut into a wonderful and quirky glamping space. With a wood burning stove, bright and colourful furnishings and proper beds, ‘Harvest Hut’ makes for the ideal getaway from the modern world of smart phones, digital devices and finger tip technology.
This is not the first time the couple have shared their impressive 200 acre farm with visitors. They have been welcoming glamping enthusiasts onto their land since 2012 with the introduction of ‘High Seas Hobbits’ and more recently with ‘Coastal Carriage’. Their farm boasts a fabulous location in the North East of Scotland with stunning views over the Moray Firth. Together with their herd of beef cows and a sprinkling of sheep, peacocks, ferrets and dogs, it is no surprise why people fall in love with it and choose to holiday here.
Nestled in its own grassy field, making it a thoroughly exclusive experience, Harvest Hut offers a taste of years gone by. Once used by farm workers for humble accommodation, Carole and Matthew have sensitively converted it to a fun and unique living space, which sleeps 3. It continues to be off grid and environmentally friendly with solar powered lighting and proudly displays a few hints towards its past.
Harvest Hut is just a short drive away from many beautiful beaches, quaint fishing villages and Scotlands only mainland Gannet colony, perfect for weekend trips away.
Harvest Hut costs £75 per night. For more information or to make a booking call 07954 989737.
