Foxwold Huts and Camping: Exterior

General

  • 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.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely hideaway of only a few cabins / huts that aren't too close to each other! It felt private and had that feeling of having properly escaped and not like a campsite. Kat and Andy are fantastic hosts, always on hand if needed and very good company when doing the rounds. We had Betty, which was just lovely for the 3 of us... mum, dad, and our 9 year old boy. Kat and Andy provided a spare futon mattress and bedding for our son, as well as making sure there were enough kitchen/crockery items for us. The kitchen area was very well equipped, and it didn't feel like we were missing anything. There is a lovely little stream across the field where you can look for crayfish and other water creatures while stepping across stones in the water. There is also plenty to see and do in the local area, and Hadrians wall is just over an hour away where we saw plenty of Roman fort ruins and museums. To be honest, we mostly stayed at Foxwold to just chill out and relax. Bliss.

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).

Must see

  • The Rheged Centre (7.6 miles)
  • Dalemain Historic House & Gardens (8.3 miles)
  • Ullswater Steamers (13.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill (4.4 miles)
