Craftsman built from reclaimed wood, the shepherd's hut is a luxurious and romantic retreat for couples. The accommodation is surprisingly spacious containing all the essential features usually found in a standard cottage including: a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable king size bed, bathroom with double shower, quirky dining area and wood burning stove - this really is the perfect hideaway for two.
Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen for king size bed, towels and wi-fi are all included. Initial logs for wood burner included. External utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer (shared with family available on request). Plenty of storage. Plentiful parking. 4G reception.
Set on the edge of the farmyard by a small stream with uninterrupted views over the fields to broad leaved woodland and the fells beyond. Enjoy the morning sun in the private outdoor seating area (or sit by the wood burner in the colder months). Three miles from Windermere and two from Staveley the hut is close to Lake Windermere. Amazing scenery awaits walkers and cyclists; there are routes suitable for all ages and abilities. Convenience store, farm shop and visitor centre, real ale pub and restaurant are all less than a mile away.
