Situated on a working family farm in the heart of the Lake District, this cute shepherd’s hut is surrounded by breath-taking views; an ideal place to come and unwind and enjoy some amazing walks.

Bask in the sunshine, soak up the undulating scenery and let go of all the stresses of daily life when you stay at this special holiday retreat in the Lake District. Situated on a picturesque, verdant farm at Bridgend, 1 mile from Patterdale and Ullswater, this one-bedroom shepherd’s hut sleeps two guests and could be perfect for a couple on a romantic break. Beautifully designed and immaculately presented, the inviting abode offers compact yet exceptionally comfortable accommodation for anyone keen to be close to the great outdoors.

Tear yourselves away from the enchanting scenery to take four steps up into the shepherd’s hut and discover your creatively designed lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom. You have a kitchen space where you can whip up delicious dinners for two with local Lakeland produce you have bought. Open the doors to bring the fresh air in on warm days, or settle down to your favourite programme on the Smart TV when the weather is chilly. Have a hot shower before climbing into your inviting double bed for the night. Take your morning coffee out into the sunshine and lose yourselves in your picturesque surroundings until you are ready to head off on your next adventure. You also have parking for one car with this holiday retreat.

Pack a picnic, lace up your boots and walk just over 1 mile to pick up the Ullswater Way. This scenic, 20-mile route takes you all the way around the lake. Tackle it in stages, catching steamboats from piers along the shores when you opt not to walk. Hike 5 miles from the shepherd’s hut to reach the stunning beauty spot of Aira Force Waterfall. Climb up to the 950-metre summit of Helvellyn mountain, 4 miles from your base, for breathtaking, panoramic vistas right out across the Lake District.

Great location, and huts are really lovely. We started off our 3 week stay in the lakes with a few days in one of the huts and had a great time. Left a few suggestion for a few improvement, ie hair dryer, boot tray etc but on the whole would recommend for something different .

Beautiful hut, excellent peaceful location and fantastic views. Owners were friendly and helpful. There are some great walks from the hut, Angle Tarn and Harts Crag for some fantastic views. Also recommend a boat trip on Ullswater. We would love a return visit.

Excellent accommodation. Everything needed for a stay away plus the fantastic brownies and other goodies as mentioned by others! Leaving some milk in the fridge was brilliant as we arrived after the nearest store had closed (although it meant we didn't have an excuse to eat the brownies for breakfast!).

Perfect location as its not too far of a drive from all the main attractions of the lake district. Stunning views, and a nice quiet, cosy place to stay. The hut was really clean and had a well equipped kitchen.

This is a beautiful location, it was a fabulous short break for us. Very peaceful, just the natural sounds of the brook, wind in the trees and the sheep. The facilities were all we needed . It is somewhere we will definitely put on our returns list.

Myself and my daughter spent a wonderful weekend in the Swaledale Shepherds Hut. The hut was simply outstanding and the location was so quiet, peaceful and absolutely stunning.

Really lovely stay. Huts are brand new and theres only 2 of them on site so it is lovely and quiet. Provided a huge slab of quite possibly the most amazing brownie Ive ever tasted, which was gladly received! The owner allowed us to stay on a bit longer too. Only downside was that we only stayed one night! Thanks for a lovely stay

What a stunning little find. The hut's finish was very high quality with a lot of care and attention to the smallest detail. It was warm and cosy and had everything you could possibly need. The hut was brand new so everything was in perfect condition. The bed was so comfortable too with a lovely fur throw. The location was quite spectacular too, thRead moree view from the front door was breath-taking. You could hear the sheep bleating too which was lovely to hear. I can't wait to go back. Hide

Absolutely perfect. Warm, cosy and immaculately clean. All the amenities you'd need for a romantic getaway in a stunning location. The shepherd's huts are surprisingly big inside, the large double bed was very comfortable and the huts well insulated. It was blowing a gale when we stayed which made the whole experience even better. Ample car parkingRead more space and the distance between huts meant we felt completely alone. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We'd Definately stay again. Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
