This is a lovely shepherd's hut and the welcome package was much appreciated. Perfect location and ideal spot for a romantic getaway. Loved the contactlessness of the stay, especially in times like today. Anyone over 5'8" be aware, the bed is very short! Understandable in such a small space but it will make it difficult to sleep. Hot tub was reallyRead more nice and ready to go when we arrived, could have done with more light and a bit more privacy. Overall a lovely stay and good value for money. Hide

The Little Man is wonderful, we booked a mid week stay in November, we didnt really know what to expect having never used a shepherd hut before or been to the lakes. The accommodation is beautiful. The views are incredible. The whole stay was contactless which felt very organised and covid secure. The hut is VERY clean, fresh and modern. The fixturRead morees and fittings are lovely and very high end. The only thing was that the pillows on the bed were very hard, other than that 100% perfect. Thank you Hide

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.
