Shepherds’ Huts

Come glamping in our shepherds’ huts.

  • Sleeps: 2

Riverside retreats at Blencowe Hall on the Rowley Estates are idyllic. Bluebells, red squirrels, songbirds. The turning of the seasons as colours shift in dappled light. At night the moon rises through laced branches of blackthorn and oak and the owls hoot.

It’s so magical we want to offer you a way to linger here. Our shepherds’ huts give you a simple break in the heart of the wilderness with a flourish of The Rowley Estates luxury.

When you park at Blencowe Hall or arrange a collection at Penrith train station a short journey away, your adventure begins. Head on foot through the fields and find your glamping haven. Each of the three timber-clad huts are sited in their own secluded spot along the River Petteril.

Your hut is architect-designed to enhance space and comfort. Inside, reconnect with a simpler life. There’s no wi-fi here, so swap stories, play cards by candlelight or read by solar power. At night, your oak floored cosy seating area transforms into a bedroom with a super comfortable and spacious fold-down king size bed with Egyptian cotton bedding to ensure you a luxurious night’s sleep.

Enjoy complete privacy with your own Scandinavian-style shower-room and open plan kitchen with a gas hob and a fridge. Or throw open the door onto your deck overlooking the river and dine al fresco using the Weber barbeque or outdoor oven. Relax in the Adirondack chairs whilst throwing a log on the fire pit and count the stars in style.
