Rowan RetreatLonging for an escape to the woods or the chance to paddle in a Lakeland stream? Back-to-nature combines with luxury within this exquisite solar-powered shepherds hut. The Rowan Retreat offers a five foot king size bed, a private Scandinavian-style en-suite shower room with a heated chrome towel rail and flushing toilet and a bijoux kitchen perfectly suited for two with a handmade fold down oak table, a gas hob, oven, fridge and sink. Whether you want to get out and about in the nearby Lake District National Park, hike to the nearby Boot and Shoe pub in Greystoke or just relax in the Adirondack chairs and catch up on that book you have been hoping to read, this shepherds hut nestled above a flower filled meadow provides a perfect place to enjoy the fresh air and stunning river views. Step out of Rowan Retreat and you are overlooking the River Peterril which is accessed via a private grassed path through the woodland meadow. Light up the fire pit or Weber charcoal barbecue (complimentary logs and charcoal provided as you would expect in this luxurious retreat) and dine al fresco at the picnic table by the stream. Enjoy the welcoming complimentary breakfast hamper in the morning, get out and explore during the day and then relax in the evening in front of the fire, open a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunset and later on the stunning star light display in peace and privacy.
