  • Our huts are hand made (by us!) and fully insulated with sheep's wool. Inside, the huts feature quality fitted kitchens with fridge, oven, hobs, sink and all the utensils and crockery, an en suite bathroom, underfloor heating, BOSE sound, TV/DVD, bedding and linen. The huts are also accompanied by an arctic cabin where guests can congregate and cook their dinner/hang out around a real fire. This comes with reindeer skin rugs and throws. Plenty of parking space and private, gated access.

    There are a series of woodland walking trails which start at the front door.  These quickly take you up Haverthwaite Heights with beautiful and commanding views of the estuary and Rusland valley.

    We are within walking distance of several good pubs serving decent pub grub and plenty of real ales and local fayre.

  • In the small village of Haverthwaite, where trains whistle to a halt outside the quaint old station, Woodman's Shepherd’s Huts is a glamping site lucky enough to enjoy the same quintessentially English setting. Ensconced in their own private woodland enclave, the site is made up of just two wooden shepherd’s huts, insulated with sheep’s wool and furnished inside to a seriously comfortable standard. Through gaps in the trees, views south reveal the Holker Valley and across to 16th century Bigland Hall while, closer to home, fledgling birds enliven the surrounding trees.

    Inside, the shepherds hut are as ergonomic as you could ask for. One sleeps two, the other three, and each have their own en suite luxury bathroom with a powerful shower, sink and toilet and a few toiletries provided. There’s a well-equipped kitchen space, complete with an oven and fridge, and ample storage, plus – perhaps most impressive of all – under-floor heating! A real godsend if the weather turns all English on you.

    Together the huts make for a wonderfully exclusive holiday for a small group, or you can book just one hut for an individual stay, socialising with your neighbours in the communal ‘Arctic Hut’ – a hexagonal, pine lodge with an indoor BBQ and fire pit in its centre. The Scandinavian feel of its interior is only enhanced by the reindeer skins and throw around the benches.

  • 3 berth hut 90 pounds per night

    2 berth hut 75 pounds per night

  • Please note that our 2-berth uses bunk beds.  Although these are full-size singles, they are not a double bed.  Our 3-berth has 2 bunk beds and a single, again full sized.  

    Our Arctic hut provides a separate space for you to chill out, cook on the open fire and enjoy a drink.  It is cozily decked out with reindeer skins to keep you snug and warm.  

  • At just 3 miles long, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway is one of the shortest lines in England. Yet what it lacks in distance it makes up for with sheer natural splendour. Threading its way south from the tip of Lake Windermere, polished steam trains chug along the Leven Valley, hugging the gently sloping hillsides as plumes of white steam drift skywards against a backdrop of endless trees. And where the trees end, the fells begin; peaks climbing skyward, scattered with heather and bracken and frosted with snow during the colder winter months. It’s precisely the scene the makes the Lake District so famous.

    For most, though, the comforts of glamping remain a side note to the setting. The postcard panorama of Lake Windermere is just a few minutes away in the car, or you can set off into the national park right from the sites doorstep, with several excellent walking routes nearby. To the south, cross the River Leven and climb your way to Bigland Tarn, a pool of hilltop water just below a shallow summit. It’s a very gentle route but rewards you with some of the best views of the coast and Morecambe Bay. If you look carefully you can also make out your cosy shepherd’s hut back down in the valley too

    Dogs are not allowed in the huts.  We are planning on making some little huts for your four legged friends.  Watch this space!  There is a boarding kennel near by and you are welcome to keep your pets in the car (adjacent to the huts) as the walking is fantastic for dogs we would just prefer to not have pets in the huts themselves.
