Hollow Gill Huts

Who We Are


We are Emma and Pete Stephenson and we are delighted to share our beautiful countryside and farm as we welcome you to Hollow Gill Huts. Our glamping site with only three gorgeous shepherds huts on it is based on our tenanted farm on the outskirts of the small village of Rathmell near Settle, North Yorkshire. We have lived in the area for over ten years, starting dales life in Horton-in-Ribblesdale before moving onto a small farm in Settle and finally settling here at Far Cappleside Farm three years ago. 

We met in 2006 at University and in the years that followed we married in 2012 and have brought three more Stephenson’s into the world. Our children love every part of farm and country life in the Yorkshire Dales. Pete comes from a farming family following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. Having spent some of my younger years working in hospitality after completing my degree in 2007, I have worked for the past 11 years for the local authority supporting parents who have children with disabilities. We hope we can bring a touch of style and offer an amazing experience when you stay with us.

It’s been our dream to have our own shepherd hut site ever since we stayed in a shepherd hut on our own family holiday.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our piece of heaven in our beautiful part of the countryside. You can book a hut for as little as £75 on a Sunday night, whereas our other nights are £150 each night. Check out our offers for discount codes you can redeem on this website.


Enjoy the countryside and spacious surroundings with your family. Play games, explore and take in plenty of Yorkshire’s finest fresh air with stunning views of the Dales countryside.


Take the time to relax on your private patio space with amazing views of the Dales countryside. Unwind with a glass of bubbly in hand or even toast a marshmallow over the fire.


Explore the trails, hikes, footpaths and hills that are all around us. Visit the towns and villages and go check-out some of the world’s most iconic places of outstanding natural beauty. There is so much to explore in one visit, you may just need to book again to continue your adventure.

Charge Up

Taking time out for yourself or with family is important for everyone. We’ll have you feeling relaxed, reinvigorated and ready for action after your stay. Enjoy everything we have to offer from fire pits to a contemporary living space, all surrounded by stunning scenery.



We really hope you love the huts we’ve had made as much as we do. We feel they offer a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We appreciate what a beautiful place we get to live in and wish to share this with you. The views are incredible and instantly relieve any stresses and worries when looked at over a cup of tea or glass of bubbly in hand.

We made a conscious decision to tuck the huts up above the farm to allow for our guests to fully appreciate the views and be away from the farmyard noise. Sat up against the mature woodland, there isn’t a better and more peaceful place to relax and enjoy your stay in Yorkshire.



The farm will always be a huge part of our life, but we’re excited to see you when you come and stay at Hollow Gill Huts.

Looking after you during your stay is our number one priority and we’d be delighted to welcome you, and your family and friends here soon.

We hope to see you very soon.
