  • Beautiful handmade shepherd's huts
  • in the heart of the picturesque
  • South Lakes

Woodman's Shepherd’s Huts is a glamping site lucky enough to enjoy the same quintessentially English setting. Ensconced in their own private woodland enclave, the site is made up of just two wooden shepherd’s huts, insulated with sheep’s wool and furnished inside to a seriously comfortable standard. Through gaps in the trees, views south reveal the Holker Valley and across to 16th century Bigland Hall while, closer to home, fledgling birds enliven the surrounding trees.

Inside, the shepherds hut are as ergonomic as you could ask for. One sleeps two, the other four, and each have their own en suite luxury bathroom with a powerful shower, sink and toilet and a few toiletries provided. There’s a well-equipped kitchen space, complete with an oven and fridge, and ample storage, plus – perhaps most impressive of all – under-floor heating! A real godsend if the weather turns all English on you.
