“An amazing special gem hidden away from the manic of daily life!!!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at The Hut In The Sheep Wash as an anniversary present but really it was just an excuse to get away from the craziness of normal life and 3 kids!!! And oh my was it just what we needed......the actual hut is beautifully done to a high standard with added extra touches and decorations make it feel that little bit more special. When we arrived there were freshly baked scones, home made jam and fresh farm eggs waiting for us. The hut is in a beautiful setting hidden away from everyone with the soothing sounds of the running stream at the end of the grassy area. We made full use of the bbq and fire pit to sit out on the grass until late eating, drinking and talking. The next morning was greeted with constant rain but we just chilled in the cosy hut and made a leisurely breakfast.

I could not recommend this place any more if you are just looking to get away from it all and refresh yourselves with a touch of specialness all round.

Thankyou Hilary, you have a special gem of place. We will definately be returning!!!

“Wonderful hidden away hut in the south Lakes.”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful time staying in the hut - Hilary was on-site when we arrived making sure everything was ready for us. The hut is well looked after and had everything we needed for out time in the Lakes - the hut is set in your own private field well away from the outside world. We had a perfect, romantic break - so romantic I proposed there, thankfully she said yes!

Loved our stay in such a beautiful hut. It was so warm and cosy we didn't need the indoor stove on! Great private location. Lots of thought to provide little touches that make the stay special-such as the outside log fire basket and the books about shepherd huts and sheep farming. Everything was perfect, even a hot shower in the morning.

“Peaceful and tranquil setting”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have had a really peaceful and relaxing weekend in the cosy hut. The hut is very well equipped and beautifully accessorised. We were made to feel very welcome by Hilary on our arrival. The homemade lemon drizzle cake went down a treat. The hut is placed in a beautiful and tranquil setting, as it is placed in a field on it's own so we were totally secluded. Wonderful for wildlife spotting. We were lucky enough to spot deer in the field two nights in a row. We watched one just 100 metres away feeding for twenty minutes. In the morning we watched squirrels playing in the trees whilst having breakfast. There was also an abundance of birdlife. It is close to the attractions of the south lakes.

“Peaceful, weekend away”

Had a great weekend in the hut, it was clean, tidy and very cosy, would recommend this for a quiet weekend relaxing by a river. Also very close to the Lakes!
