The Owner Says

An alternative to camping. Just bring everything you would normally bring camping – but leave the tent behind!

The Shepherds' Hut comfortably sleeps two people and is situated in it's own area of the campsite, with views towards Skiddaw through the French doors to the front, and Barrow through the window on the side. A stream runs along one side of the Shepherds' Hut. There is slate bench behind the Shepherds' Hut, and in front a campfire already set up.

Features & Facilities:
  • Fully insulated, and has painted wooden panelling inside, with a wooden floor.
  • Double glazed doors and window
  • A built-in bed, with a mattress made especially to fit!
  • Two lights, two electric sockets,
  • Two shelves, and hooks for hanging clothes, etc.
  • Outside there are wooden steps to the ground, and a small paved area, surrounded by grass and native hedging.
  • A canopy which fits onto the front of the Shepherds' Hut, provides a sun shade in the better weather, and welcome shelter from the rain on wet days!
