A personal, bespoke retreat and B&B

Tranquility in the North Pennines

Welcome to Hill Top Haven. The latest adventure from Being Ewe......

Bespoke Retreat and B&B


We live in the beautiful and historic Hill Top House, and want to share its tranquillity and peace with you. 

Hill Top Haven is a rural retreat offering wellbeing and creative activities, both accompanied and self-led. 
Or, book yourself in as a B&B guest and spend quality alone time.

Explore the moors and the dales of the North Pennines, from our location on the border of Durham, Cumbria and Northumberland.

However you explore Hill Top, we're sure you'll leave refreshed and ready to face the world again.

We run 3 day group Wellbeing Retreats, as well as the craft retreats. The wellbeing retretas are group focussed (max 6 people) based on a theme. 2022's themes are: Stress, the Menopause and Grief. For dates/prices, see event list below

Alternatively, for non-group, individual retreats and stays, choose from one of our four packages, or go bespoke! See below for more details

Unwind, and  find some peace in this tranquil corner of England. Sip coffee on the terrace admiring the view before deciding how you're going to relax, next. Perhaps a spot of Afternoon Tea? Or some mindful meditation? 

Or maybe just read, paint or drink in the view. 
If you fancy some rest & relaxation, perhaps mooching around the nearby towns and villages, and lots of time to read, then this package is for you.

Breathe, Think, Relax


Bring out your inner adventurer, and sample the adrenalin that the North Pennines can offer you.

Explore the North Pennines and  incorporate the panoramic sights into your creations.

Learn a new skill or just create something new in this inspiring environment. Relax in the comfort of the craft room or on the terrace for a lesson in, amongst others, felting, stitching or jewellery-making.

The possibilities are as endless as your imagination allows.
