2022 in review: A year of change

December 19, 2022

As the end of 2022 draws to a close, we wanted to reflect on what a year it’s been for the Estate. Check out our 2022 in review: a year of change post!

The year started off with groundwork for what is now Highgate Cabins. Metcalf’s worked at great speed to get us up and ready to receive our first Highgate Cabin. 

In March and April, we started to develop our new quadrangle space. Situated at Highgate and surrounded by heritage farm buildings, the quadrangle provides our cabin guests with a space to reflect, read a book or even mingle with other guests. 




In the summer we finally took delivery of our first cabin – Brow Wood and within a couple of months, it was ready and waiting to welcome the first guests! We’ve had a fantastic response so far and can’t wait for our guests to experience this magical place through the changing of the seasons in 2023. Here’s just a snapshot of what our guests have thought so far:

“If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all then Brow Wood cabin really is the place. Beautifully furnished and cosy. Set in the woods, quiet and peaceful. Minimal light coming through too. Just what was needed for our long weekend away. Would highly recommend. We felt very welcomed and help was provided as and when needed. Thank you” Farrah Mir

“So glad we found this brand-new cabin in the North Lakes. It really was a home from home. Everything was new and worked! and all carefully and tastefully curated. A refreshing change from some of the properties we have previously rented in the Lakes. We can only thoroughly recommend this property and will definitely be back. Thank you Hutton John Estate for a magical experience.” Mike Blades

Alongside this, we undertook lots of work to maintain the Estate with dry stone walling and rewilding our ancient Brow Wood so that it can be beautifully left as nature intended. 

Ending the year on a high, we have now broken ground on the next two cabins at Highgate. Work has commenced at pace and we look forward to having them ready for guests in March 2023. Keep an eye out for more information and for when bookings go live! 

We can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store for us at Hutton John Estate and look forward to more exciting developments. 

Three beautiful and lovingly restored cottages. Where heritage meets modern-day living. 

Sleeps 4, 6, or 10.

Four contemporary cabins, immersed in nature. Where the outdoors meets luxury. 

Sleeps 2.

Passed down through generations, our family and history are at the heart of the approximately 300 acre Hutton John Estate.
