Had a lovely 4 night stay. With a nice welcome pack of milk,scones and flapjacks which were very tasty! The hut was quite spacious and had all the gadgets you need for a short stay plus good Wi-Fi! I slept like a log on bed which was very comfortable. Location was very peaceful and just a short drive to Keswick and thirlmere which is where we spentRead more time . Had to have dog on a lead on premises but understandable as there were sheep/lambs ..highly recommended - I am returning in the near future Hide

We loved our stay at the Shepherds hut it was so lovely and much more spacious than youd think, bed was comfy, the extra touches of the scones milk and gingerbread made it special. Also couldnt beat the views it was really quiet, the perfect getaway we will definitely recommend to others and stay here again.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
