The Suffolk Hut

The Suffolk hut provides you with dog friendly holiday accommodation in a beautifully converted railway wagon situated near both Snowdonia and the beautiful North Wales Coast. The Suffolk offers you even more choice of luxury (and yet dog friendly) accommodation. With a spacious open feel, with a railway theme and feature double doors. She has a large bed and wet-room, providing you, your loved one and your dogs with all the comforts of home, plus fantastic views and plenty of secure enclosed outside space to enjoy as the Suffolk is situated in its own paddock.

A must for railway enthusiasts!

The Suffolk was originally a railway wagon, which has been coverted into our gorgeous accommodation, and is a novel get away for the railway enthusiast! So if you’re planning a holiday in North Wales and visiting either the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the Ffestiniog Railway or the Welsh Highland Railway as part of that then why not plan your ‘North Wales Railway Tour’ around a stay in a converted railway wagon – The Suffolk, here at the Shepherds Hideaway!

The Suffolk Hut’s distinctive railway wagon feel and large bed and wet-room provide you, your loved one and your dogs with all the comforts of home, plus fantastic views and plenty of outside space to enjoy.

Railway wagon accommodation with luxury and comfort!

This is our third hut and is named after another favourite things – the Suffolk Punch!

When we designed ‘the Suffolk’ we wanted to squeeze as much ‘wow’ and ‘OMG’ into our old railway wagon as we could, in fact we got so much inside we applied the same approach to the outside – resulting in a quirky outside living space with a feature fireplace, with the internal style being based on an old time railway waiting room. The Suffolk provides warmth, comfort and single level (great if you have dodgy knees like me), dog friendly accommodation with a superb relaxing view and location! It offers a level of style and comfort which set it apart from the rest (apart from our other huts that is!), and you’re going to love it!

As with our other huts the Suffolk is situated in its own fenced off area for you and your dogs to enjoy and run free.

Accessed is via a re-enforced road, which is suitable to drive on in all weathers.

In common with our other huts the Suffolk hut boasts fantastic views in wonderful countryside, less than 4 miles from the city of St Asaph in North Wales, the smallest city in the UK.

This tranquil setting is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic break away or a couple of friends or family members to enjoy a get together .

What’s inside?

Inside you’ll find;

  • Two comfy arm chairs sit in front of the large feature doors with floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing you to sit back, relax and look a the views, read, paint or perhaps just stare out of the windows at the birds and sky and contemplate on how lucky you are to have found such a wonderful spot to holiday at! The living area also offers a powerful electric radiator should you need extra warmth on chilly nights.
  • A 4ft 6in Victorian cast iron bed is one of the special features, there is no need to mess around dismantling seating area and making up your bed for the evening. This is just the sort of bed you want to be in. Just the thing for those long lie-ins or lounging on in the day!
  • The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooker, grill and 3 ring hob, a small fridge-freezer and Belfast sink.
  • A wall-mounted TV and DVD player.
  • At the other end of the hut though the door you’ll find a walk-in wet-room with a large headed shower with plenty of water pressure – perfect for unwinding after a long but excellent day out exploring North Wales’ mountains, beaches or coffee shops!

What’s outside?

The Suffolk Hut is situated in its own self-contained paddock, allowing you to let your dog explore and enjoy the freedom of his/her own field!

We’ve also provided you with a Welsh slate ‘patio’ adjacent to the hut complete solid wood rocking chair seating. We’ve also provided an outside woodburner stove/BBQ to either keep you warm, fed or just generally happily mesmerised by the dancing flames!

Approx. 100 feet from the hut is the owner’s horse paddock where heavy horses can be seen at rest & play.

There are many walks from the doorstep with river walks not far away where you may see kingfishers, sparrowhawks and buzzards. A wide variety of bird life will visit the hut’s bird feeding station, with the woodpeckers visiting most days! Fishing is also available locally, either on local rivers or sea locations. A few stillwater trout venues are also within around half an hour of The Shepherds Hideaway. The excellent Foxons tackle shop in St Asaph is about 5 minutes away and can provide advice and supplies for all such matters.
