SKIDDAW CAMP

  • Shepherd’s hut for 4 from £75 per night 
  • 1 double and 2 bunks.

Suitable for children of all ages

Children and pets both welcome, but please be careful of the resident sheep. Be aware there is only room for either 2 children OR just 1 baby. There’s no room for a travel cot but a bed guard can be provided for the bottom bunk if the top bunk isn’t in use.

In your own clearing at the edge of the woods you will find a camp with everything you need for an adventurous holiday of comfort. Not only are you going to be tucked away in your own corner of woodland but there will be the backdrop of the North Lake fells to gaze out to. Full size doubles with feather down duvets and sheepskin rugs soften up your traditional shepherd’s hut which will keep you warm and cosy thanks to the wood burner. Tinker away in the kitchen, just a few steps from your hut, or take one of the most special baths of your life in this well designed forest shelter. There’s the opportunity to go even more rustic with a fire pit for campfire cookery. Groceries can be supplied by your hosts. Simply order before you get there from the list provided and get a delivery of local, seasonal produce to your camp.
