Glamping The Lake District

The Herdwick Huts in the Lake District offer glamping set on their very own exclusive site and are perfect for a small family holiday, a trip with friends, a romantic break or honeymoon.  The huts are positioned a short walk from Rydal Water and many classic valley and high level walks, including the Coffin Trail to Grasmere and the famous Fairfield Horseshoe. The small town of Ambleside is within walking distance, with amenities such as shops, restaurants and a five-screen cinema. Our central location means great access by road, public transport and bicycle to explore most parts of the Lake District.

You can walk straight from the huts through a stunning woodland sculpture path to access historic Rydal Hall. Great for exploring, the Hall’s extensive 34 acre grounds has ornate gardens, a Grotte, and superb tearoom. Elsewhere on site there are paths which lead past cascading waterfalls and secret pools.

These 5 huts are beautifully equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The views from the stable door and windows are amazing and the wood burning stove will keep you toasty warm.

Each Herdwick Hut includes

  • Double Bed with memory foam mattress (sleeps two adults)
  • Single Bunk with memory foam mattress (sleeps one child)
  • Fresh colourful duvets and linen
  • Fabrics and cushions
  • Wood burning stove and oven (with wood, newspaper and kindling)
  • Drop leaf oak table and chair
  • All Kitchen and Cooking utensils
  • Teal Towel and Washing-up liquid
  • Tea light lanterns with spare tea lights
  • LED lights
  • Outside brazier and bench

and we are happy to accept one well behaved dog
