  • Modern shepherd's huts on a peaceful Eden Valley smallholding
  • A 15-minute drive from Penrith; half an hour from Ullswater
  • Rural site with far-reaching views and barbecues provided
If you're on the lookout for comfy Cumbria stays, check out the accommodation at Foxwold Huts and Camping, a peaceful farm site set over eight secluded acres of rural land. Surrounded as they are by green surrounds and finished to a high standard inside and out, these handsome huts make quite the pretty picture and are an all-round brilliant backdrop for stints in the Cumbria countryside. Shepherd's huts have come on quite a bit since pre-industrial times – these models come with barbecue areas, outdoor furniture, plush soft furnishings and comfy beds. They've all been thoughtfully set up far apart from other buildings in a quiet paddock, with green and grassy vistas that are rather lovely to wake up to. They don't come with showers, but separate eco toilet facilities are on hand a short walk away. Those who are in the market for proper rural views have come to the right place: it's part of a smallholding that's taken a variety of animals under its wing over the past few years, including ponies, a flock of sheep and Talulah the resident cow (guests can't actually wander around the farm area but it's certainly a fitting background). There's also a small stream that runs through the site, with fab views over the Pennines to boot. Foxwold Huts and Camping is a mile from Morland village centre, where there's a café, pub and historic parish church. Penrith (15 minutes' drive) is home to the nearest supermarket.

Betty shepherd's hut

Liked: This is our 3rd year running staying at Foxwold and it was fantastic as usual. We love getting 'off grid' to relax, unwind and reset. Foxwold is set in a beautiful part of the country and it is always peaceful and tranquil. Kat and Andy are fantastic hosts, they keep the site in great condition, the huts are alway clean and comfortable and nothing is too much for them. We will certainly be back next year and for many more years to come.

Ruby shepherd's hut

Liked: Peaceful location, great hosts who were friendly, helpful with advice on where to go in local area, loved the outdoor shower and compost loos. Everything needed for a break away from it all. Great skies for star gazing around the campfire.

Disliked: A little muddy in places due to the heavy rainfall, so glad I took my wellies!

George shepherd's hut

Liked: It's a wonderful place to relax. Marshmallows were prepared in the hut and I was able to roast them on the wood stove and enjoy them. I would have liked to stay a few more days if possible. I also recommend enjoying it with your dog. Outdoor shower time is also fan. It was a little difficult on a rainy day, but interesting!

Betty shepherd's hut

Liked: The whole site is really pretty and well thought out with some useful extras like a communal fridge and charge point. Our hut (Betty) was beautiful and the camp kitchen had everything we needed, even things we weren’t expecting like wooden chopping boards, sharp knives and nice crockery and glass wear. The hosts were so kind and welcoming and set a fire pit and bbq up for us, making sure we knew how to get them both going! They were also really helpful in giving us directions and recommending local attractions (I.e the pub and cafe!)

Disliked: The compost loos - sorry!

Local attractions

This site is in the sweet spot between the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and North Pennines, all of which can be reached in a 20-minute drive or less. Stick Ullswater (30 minutes) in your satnav if you're on the lookout for sailing or canoeing on a big body of water; there's also a 20-mile long walking route that encircles this loveliest of lakes, with several pubs and hikers’ cafés to be found along the way. History-hunters may well want to spend a spell at Lowther Castle (20 minutes), a cracking country house with landscaped gardens. A niche but interesting option is to take a trip to Kendal Quaker Tapestry Museum (35 minutes) to see its 77 intricately embroidered panels. In the event that the kids come down with a case of museum fatigue, a trip to the movies and live shows at the Rheged Centre (20 minutes) may well be just the job. The World of Beatrix Potter (50 minutes) is another safe bet for younger tots, while more mature teens may favour a high trees jaunt at Go Ape Grizedale (an hour and 10 minutes).
