Property code: 94070

On the edge of Ullswater, this utterly elevated glamping experience offers a quirky base for Lake District walking adventures. Get cosy together in this ultra-romantic shepherd's hut that’s made for two, enjoying the fire pit outdoors and the double bed inside to snuggle up and enjoy some quality time together. Whether you’re in the area for hiking and biking or rest and recuperation, discover an abundance of attractions nearby. There’s a hotel with a spa less than 1 mile away and the Cumbrian fells and lakes that put this national park on the map are all just a walk or a short drive away.

This bespoke abode features wooden panelling, copper pipe features and quirky design elements that set this holiday home apart from the rest. Take four steps up to reach the unique studio-style space with a kitchen and double bedroom in one. The en-suite bathroom with a wonderful shower unit is just next door. There’s no TV in here, allowing you to get stuck into a good book or simply reminisce over past getaways over a bottle of your favourite tipple. Stepping outside, find a magnificent garden space with a pond, a fire pit and a seating area, a place to sit and admire dark night skies together.

A 1-mile stroll leads down onto the edge of Ullswater, a place to walk or get stuck into some water sports. Be sure to check out Aira Force Waterfall, a famed beauty spot around 4 miles away. For more elevated excursions, the neighbouring Great Mell Fell (5.5 miles) and Little Mell Fell (1.5 miles) offer walking routes for exploring both hilltops. Larger fells including Blencathra (11 miles) and Helvellyn (7 miles) are accessible nearby, well worth the short drive and longer hike to the top.
