Scales Farm, Berrier, Penrith, Cumbria CA11 0XE
3 Shepherd’s huts, 2 Safari tents and 2 bell tents; each accompanied by a dining/cooking shelter, a bathroom shelter and a composting loo.
The 3 shepherd’s huts can accommodate up to 4 people each, while the the 2 safari tents sleep up to 6 and the 2 bell tents taking 4 between them. Glamping only – no tents, caravans, motorhomes, but well-behaved pets are welcome.
Each shepherd’s hut has a double bed at one end and bunk beds at the other. Bunk beds can be folded down into a seating area if not required. Bedding and linen are provided. The huts are fully insulated and have a wood burning stove with adequate wood provided for your stay. A solar power pack provides lighting and a socket for appliances under 300w, such as fans and radios. Solar lights also lead out to the composting toilet. Each camp includes an outside dinning area and a BBQ pit for those die-hard campfire cooks, but there is also a kitchen/dining shelter with a wood burning range cooker, gas hob and gas fridge, well equipped kitchen area and sink. The bathroom shelter leads off from the dinning area and has hot water provided by a LPG boiler with a small wood burner to warm the room. You have the option of rolling back a canvas panel for slightly more open air bathing (your modesty is protected by a small fenced garden, so you are completely private). Towels, but not shampoos, are provided. There is parking for two cars located close to your camp. Additional parking can be arranged, however this will be at a distance from the hut.
