Shepherds hut
Beautiful shepherd's hut in an idyllic riverside field. Peaceful and quiet setting ideal for a romantic break or get away from everyday life. Selfcontained with gas hobs/grill and all equipment, bathroom with shower and eco loo. Woodburner/BBQ/Firepit.Solar panels provide lights/sockets for phone charging. Breakfast provisions provided. A pitch for a tent is available to make the accommodation more flexible, so why not bring the kids and make it into a family holiday (£10 per night, bring your own tent etc) Ideally situated to explore the Lake District but away from the tourist hotspots and crowds - just a short drive to Coniston Water. The market town of Ulverston is 3 miles away with a good selection of pubs, shops,places to eat and the world famous Laurel and Hardy Museum!

Amazing place, loved everything about it (including no internet and phone signal) Hilary has truly thought of everything in this adorable little hut. We stayed for 3 days but I wish it had been longer and we will definitely be returning.

The shepherds hut in the wash is such a wonderful, idyllic little paradise well away from reality, where one can completely forget the rest of the outside world. It was clean, green and beautifully done. Hillary had thought of it all and even went above...More
