“Fantastic place in a beautiful location! The fact we could have an evening meal as well as breakfast cooked for us whilst still having our own living space was amazing certainly haven’t come across this before! The bath was brilliant for relaxing and the view was beautiful! Thank you so much for being so friendly and welcoming too - exactly what we needed!”

“The Shepherd’s Hut is a great break for couples who are after a few days of peace and tranquility. The location is perfect with beautiful walks situated a few metres from the door, and Susan was just a message away from providing us with local routes and also things to do in other parts of the Lake District, including at Windermere lake. Also, my partner and I are vegan, and this was well catered for with the breakfast, as Susan provided us with both butter and milk replacements at no extra cost, as well as fruit and ginger beer. During our stay we had a couple of days of nice weather, and took advantage of this by using the lovely outdoor seating area, and as there were fairy lights around the garden you could still enjoy it at night. Overall a wonderful stay in a beautifully designed space with a great host always available to help if needed.”
We offer guests a contactless stay in our detached studio suite in the Lake District. In order to refresh the studio and to complete intensive cleaning we are blocking off a minimun of two days either side of every booking. The studio has a king-sized bed, dining table & chairs, a very comfortable sofa, TV, lobby, wet room, small kitchenette with mini-fridge and microwave. Patio doors open on to a private sun terrace overlooking the garden and surrounding fields. Parking next to the studio.
“Laraine and Bill’s studio is fabulous! It has such a cosy, comfortable feel and is perfectly located for those who want to go exploring. It is a short 20 minute drive away from many villages, such as Bowness-on-Windermere, Windermere and Cartmel Fell, so there is plenty to do and see. Laraine and Bill were also very friendly hosts - the continental breakfast they provided was lovely and had a ‘special touch’. Would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting The Lakes.”
