For a truly relaxing great escape, this comfortable shepherd’s hut offers the perfect bolt hole to explore this wonderful coastline. Two Shakes offers glamping home-from-home comfort. Amazingly well equipped, so you don’t have to squash everything into your car, the luxury Northumberland shepherds hut has been designed for comfort and serenity, helping you to unwind and completely relax.

Dogs are welcome free of charge and we provide a dog bed, bowls and treats too.

Two Shakes is small, so suitable for one medium sized dog or 2 smaller ones.

We can organise doggy day care if you need it (vaccination certificates required, and fees payable directly to the provider), although many local attractions and activities are dog friendly. We highly recommend following Northumberland Dog Friendly for latest information about dog friendly eateries and activities.

We can recommend local restaurants that welcome our four legged family members – no compromise for them or you! The garden has stock fencing covered in chicken wire so should be safe and secure.

Ideal for a couple with or without a dog who would appreciate the glamping style, luxurious touches and proximity of the beaches and walks in Northumberland.

Meals can be pre-ordered from local suppliers (paid directly to the provider) and the hamlet is close to Bamburgh and Belford for essential supplies.

Two Shakes is a perfect, bijou shepherd’s hut with rural reviews. The living space is compact as you would expect from glamping, but is very cleverly designed and beautifully presented, and you should find all you need.

Budle Bay Bothies, sister company to Budle Bay Croft, provides a luxury 5* Northumberland glamping experience in a traditionally made, hand built shepherds hut – Two Shakes.

Single traveller, couple and dog friendly, Two Shakes offers a unique combination of coast and country, a real farm-stay experience close to the wonderful castles in this spectacular area of North Northumberland on the edge of the Parish of Bamburgh.

Two Shakes is located within several acres of a working small holding at Budle Bay, in the historic hamlet of Waren Mill, called Budle Bay Croft. Budle Bay, a bird watcher’s paradise, is nestled into the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Special Scientific Interest.  Budle Bay Croft, with the Cheviot Hills to the west, is close to the Northumberland Coastal Path and Cycle Route, and will have the England Coast Path going through it very soon. Two Shakes is an ideal location for walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and outdoor sport enthusiasts.
