· The Wild West in Yorkshire ·

A Cabin in the Forest

I love the spirit of America’s Wild West – the landscape, the wilderness and of course their cabins. I’ve shot a few cabins that give me that pioneering feeling, and Atkinson Grimshaw’s one of the best. Named after one of the most renowned painters of the Victorian era, it is situated in a rugged forest in the Yorkshire Wolds or Hockney country as it has become known as. (I have come to realise that Yorkshire is incredibly rich of famous great artists!), but its also the perfect place to kick back in your cowboy boots. The whole camp is magical this time of year with the trees coming alive with bird song, but it also an amazing winter retreat with the fire roaring. I could easily live there all year round.
