About Gumboots & Wellingtons

Gumboots & Wellingtons, rustic retreats in North Yorkshire.

Located in a beautiful secluded valley on the edge of Dalby Forest, yet walking distance to the picturesque village of Thornton-le-Dale, our rustic retreat is tucked away in the garden of our 17th century cottage and comprises two lovingly hand built garden hideaways.

You’re welcome to spend your holiday relaxing here in our cottage garden or if you’re looking for adventure, we’re perfectly located for exploring the North York Moors National Park. 

You can stroll along a quiet country lane to the closest village of Thornton-Le-Dale, where you will find pubs, restaurants, shops, an ice cream parlour and one of the most photographed thatched cottages in the country. If you enjoy walking or cycling, Dalby Forest is accessible right from the doorstep, with over 70 miles of forest trails to explore. You may decide to venture further afield to visit beautiful coastal towns or villages, take a guided tour, learn a new skill by joining a workshop, take a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or potter round one of the local market towns. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to discover some of the wonderful gems the North York Moors National Park has to offer. 

Two accommodation options, both suitable for 2 adults:

The Hut is a traditional shepherds hut on wheels, with a curved roof. With an open plan living & sleeping space, ours has en-suite shower room, compact kitchen and wood burning stove for cosy evenings. Lots of recycled wood and rusty tin elements add to its rustic charm.

The Den is slightly larger, with a Scandinavian & open feel. It has lots of well thought out details, a living space with comfy leather sofa, compact kitchen and wood burning stove, as well as en-suite shower room and bedroom with king-sized bed and large windows offering unique views across the garden to the neighbouring 11th century Church.

7 nights start from £590. Short breaks are welcome all year round (2 night minimum stay).
