The perfect couple retreat
Have an amazing couple of nights here, making the most out of the campfire/bbq both nights! Easy to get some logs too! Nothing better than waking up to hear the birds and see the squirrels on our decking!

Cosy shepherd’s hut in beautiful setting!
We had a lovely two night stay in Herdwick Hut. It was clean and cosy, and Libby was a great host, very communicative and lit the fire for our late arrival - thank you!
