Shepherds Hut for 4 people

The Blencathra camp at Scales Plantation is made up of a beautiful handcrafted Shepherd’s hut, a wooden kitchen and bathroom shelter and a compost loo, all in a clearing on the edge of the woods with views over the North Lake fells.

Simple wooden furniture gives the hut a traditional rustic feel, yet it’s extremely comfortable.

The full-size double bed and bunks have feather down duvets and blankets to sink into. There is a wood burner for heating, but the interior of the hut is kept uncluttered thanks to the kitchen and bathroom just outside.

The kitchen and bathroom are housed in a separate shelter, which can be opened up to give the chef or bather a unique feeling of being in the woods, or tightly closed if the weather turns.

There is a hob, a fridge and a bath with a shower attached, all gas powered, plus a fire pit for more traditional campfire cookery.

Groceries can be supplied by your hosts. Simply order before you get there from the list provided and get a delivery of local produce from Hesket Newmarket Village Shop to your camp for your arrival. The clearing includes a fire pit for outdoor cooking.

Capacity Notes:
1 Double + 2 Bunks > Children and pets both welcome.
Be aware there is only room for either 2 children OR 1 child and 1 baby.
