Space to relax in the grounds

General

  • Glamping in the grounds of a 14th-century stately home
  • Shepherd's huts with ensuite bathrooms, heating and proper beds
  • Restaurant, dessert café, mini farm and large playground on site

Smart shepherd’s huts in the grounds of a stately home – how splendid.

If you’ve ever fancied having the run of a huge country estate, take a look at these posh pads in a peaceful corner of the gardens at Samlesbury Hall, a gorgeous half-timbered medieval hall in the Lancashire countryside halfway between Preston and Blackburn.

As befits such stately surrounds, these handcrafted huts have all mod cons for a comfy stay: memory foam mattresses on the beds, a kettle for morning cuppas, and low-wattage plug sockets and USB ports to keep gadgets charged. The huts are heated to keep you cosy on chilly nights, and there are lanterns and a firepit for alfresco eves. Each hut also has an ensuite bathroom with a hot shower and towels provided.

You’ll pretty much have the run of the grounds here, so there’s plenty of space for the kids to roam about and play games; there’s also an excellent Mayflower-themed wooden playground at their disposal, as well as a mini farm to meet friendly animals. The restaurant serves up top-notch breakfasts and daytime meals, and there are sweet treats galore to be had at Dottie’s Wafflery.

When you fancy heading out, it’s 15 minutes or so to drive to Preston or Blackburn, or you can lurk at the bus stop outside the site and wait to be whisked into town.

    We had a truly lovely stay at the site, the Shepard's Hut was perfect for us.

    the children had a wonderful time walking round to the park was a little adventure and in the evening we sat out with the fire pit going and had a lovely toast the wife and I while the kids watch a movie via the wifi.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the Hall was not open due to the Corona Virus outbreak however the staff were very upfront about this before we went ahead and stayed, they even offered to change the date of our booking in order for us to come at a time when the hall would be open.

Directions

Local attractions

The obvious place to start is right on site: the hall and grounds are open most of the week for poking around in (although do check for weddings or other functions taking place before you wander in). Free tours can be had on Sundays, to learn about the hall’s history, its witching links and some of its ghostly goings on.

For a bit more history, Elizabethan Hoghton Tower and the Ribchester Roman Museum are both within a 15-minute drive. Should the nippers be tiring of cultural pursuits, Preston is 15 minutes away for shopping and various entertainments, or you can get to Blackpool’s beach in around half an hour.

If you’d rather take in a bit more nature, plenty of walking trails are three miles away at Brockholes nature reserve, which is also a starting point for the 21-mile Preston Guild Wheel cycle route.

  • Forest of Bowland (5.8 miles)
  • Oswaldtwistle Mills (7.5 miles)
