Christine was absolutely amazing- was on hand to help us 24/7 and the cabin was wonderful. Thankyou so so much!


Great hosts, amazing location and perfect accommodation 10/10


Amazing communication from Christine from the start of our booking, updated all the way to day of arrival. Very easy location to find and within half an hour of everywhere we wanted to visit in the Lake District. The accommodation was very clean, great layout and a beautiful private setting next to the river. 10/10 We loved it, thanks once again!


Amazing stay in a beautiful place! Highly recommended.


Fantastic stay at Rowan Retreat - very relaxing, very well equipped, beautiful location and loved the fact that there was no wifi or phone signal . Would highly recommend


Fantastic stay at the Rowen Retreat shepards hut, Christine was on hand when needed and great communication all round. The breakfast hamper was a nice touch and very well received with fresh bread and homemade jam- very thoughtful. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi did not reach our hut (the last one) and we had no signal whilst in the hut- although amazing for a digital detox! Would stay again and have recommended to friends and family :)


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rowan Retreat. Totally quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed watching the local wildlife and listening to the sound of the small river. The facilities were great with everything we needed during our stay. This was a definite improvement on a previous stay in a shepherds hut in Wales. Would stay again without question.


We had a fantastic stay at Rowans Retreat. Perfect little tranquil oasis and excellent base for exploring. The hut was well stocked with everything you could need and extremely comfortable. Beautiful little welcome hamper was a lovely touch too. Would highly recommend.


This is just a quick email to say a massive thanks for the lovely stay we had at Rowan Retreat last week Thursday and Friday. Everything from the location to the absolutely stunning little hut and the delicious local produce that was provided was amazing. We could not fault a single thing and it made our stay super nice and relaxing. We will most definitelybe back.


It truly was a little piece of heaven. Myself and my husband are both support workers. My husband NHS mental health services and I'm in complex health needs.
It been a real challenge during covid but to relax here was like a different world.
Thank you for giving us blissful relaxing holiday


Beautiful place! It's small but has everything you need (if you can live without hair straighteners for a few days, I just about managed!) and is beautifully furnished and clean. The riverbank location is stunning, we sat round the fire pit every night and saw hares and a deer and all kinds of birds - it's so quiet and relaxing. The booking and check in was completely hassle free and I was delighted with the welcome pack and the personal touch of a birthday card. It's a short drive to the bottom of the Blencathra hike, handy for Penrith and Keswick, and the pub in the village is really nice too.


Just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay at Rowans Retreat we had a wonderful time you should be very proud of your accommodation it was 1st class and the quiet spot by the river perfect  your communications  and standards are a benchmark for other operators of holiday lets to aspire to,we are looking now when we can come back


I just wanted to day a massive thankyou for an amazing get away. Your shepards huts are beautiful and we felt so welcomed. Thankyou again and we look forwards to coming back !
