Glamping, Whinlatter, Thornthwaite, Keswick, Lake District

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

The Shepherds’ Hut comfortably sleeps two people. Inside there is a bed platform with a double mattress, a small oil-filled electric radiator, lights and electric plug sockets.

The Shepherds’ Hut 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 native mixed hedge surrounds The Shepherds’ Hut, and a stream runs close by. There is a campfire already set up outside, with kiln dried logs available to buy from our shop.

Please remember to bring your own bedding and cooking equipment.
