Shepherds Hut for 4 people

Glamping in The Lake District is becoming more and more popular for couples, friends and families. The Blencathra camp at Scales Plantation is one of three beautiful handcrafted Shepherd’s hut, situated next to a private, purpose-built wooden kitchen, 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.
