Modern luxury subtly contrasted against beautiful, medieval Samlesbury Hall.

Legend may have it that Samlesbury Hall is one of the most haunted houses in Britain but the black and white, half-timbered building is also undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. Fortunately, for those looking for a sound nights kip, it’s the outdoor ‘glamping hamlet’ that offers a safe resting place to lay your head. And what the place may lack in ghost-free security it makes up for with its lavish modern comforts. Mixing old with new, the three colourful shepherd’s hut pull this medieval hall firmly into the 21st-century. Ye Olde England has never seen such luxury...

Built in 1325, Samlesbury Hall may be almost 700 years older than the huts but they still seem to blend subtly amongst the expansive grounds that front the building. The earthy colours, wooden doors and small, wooden window frames compliment the setting – encircled by trees – while inside they’ve catered for everything you need. Memory foam mattresses top the pair of bunk beds in each hut, low wattage electricity runs throughout and each has its own en suite bathroom with an excellent shower and towels and toiletries provided.

Each hut really operates like its own enclosed bedroom space but there are no in-built cooking facilities. Instead, guests have the full range Samlesbury Hall facilities to use, returning via the weaving lantern-lit pathway each night. For food there’s the main restaurant, a guilt engendering wafflery and an excellent ice-cream parlour, all of which source their ingredients from the Lancashire surroundings. Indeed the herbs that garnish the restaurant food are all fresh from the Hall's own Courtyard, while eggs and honey are produced by a few of the varied animals on site – the bees and chickens are joined by rabbits, goats, sheep and pigs. For children it’s a boon.

The Hall is open to the public every day – except Saturdays (and occasional Fridays) when weddings are hosted – and tour guides can provide you with a more educated perspective of the place. There’s a museum, a gallery and frequent theatre productions, while, during school holidays, the hall has a particularly busy calendar of events and activities. Down by the animal area you can also join a charming woodland trail, with bridges, swings and obstacles for children. And if it all sounds like too much fun then book yourself in for an evening ghost hunt – a few scary encounters will bring you back down to earth with a bump. Needless to say a quick return to your cosy shepherd’s hut will soften the blow.
