“A lovely shepherd's hut set in an idyllic and peaceful riverside field, ideal for a romantic break or get away from everyday life.”

Description of Hut in the Sheep Wash

The Sheep Wash is the name of the field where the hut is as it’s where sheep were gathered to be washed in the river in bygone days.

Beautifully made by Hollow Ash, the shepherd’s hut has a traditional feel but with modern comforts – walls insulated with sheeps wool, double glazing, wood panelled walls and oak floor.

It is self-contained with comfy double bed (bedding and towels provided), kitchen area with sink, gas hobs/grill and all equipment.

The bathroom has sink, shower and eco loo.

Basic essentials – tea, coffee etc are provided along with breakfast provisions and our free range eggs.

Solar panels provide lights and phones/laptops can be charged.

There is mains water, calor gas for cooking/hot water and woodburner for chillier days or winter stays (logs provided).

No TV or Wi-Fi but a selection of books and games.

You will have the field to yourselves to relax by the river, BBQ or have a campfire and watch the stars.

A pitch for a small tent is available (£10 per night) to make the accommodation more flexible, so bring the kids and make it a family glamping holiday.

We are ideally situated on the edge of the National Park as a base to explore everything the Lake District has to offer but away from the tourist hotspots and crowds.

The market town of Ulverston is 3 miles away with plenty of pubs and shops and the world famous Laurel and Hardy Museum.

Coniston Water is just a short drive and there are plenty of places to walk, cycle or just relax.
