Glamping Experiences

Glamping is the perfect combination of camping outdoors, living under the stars and getting closer to nature, but with a ‘glamour’ and luxury feel to it! Forget tents and tarps, flimsy leaky coverings and lying on the cold hard ground; when you go glamping you can curl up under cosy duvets on a proper bed, with space to stand and move around, after an evening of chatting around the campfire, under the stars.

Spend your days outdoors and your evenings around the firepit, with homecooked food, a beer in hand, and a great people around you! If you’ve never been glamping before, check out our introductory blog: 5 Reasons to Go Glamping (especially if you don’t like camping!)


Top things to know about our Accommodation

What is Shepherd Hut Accommodation?

Shepherd’s Huts were once used by shepherd’s staying out in the fields during lambing season and the idea of cosy cabins in the woods and fields has caught on – fully furnished, with wood burning stoves, beautiful décor, and everything you might need for a beautiful night’s stay near to nature. Enjoy our communal firepit, BBQ and free beer fridge in the evening and wake up to a hearty home cooked breakfast each morning (perhaps after an early morning dip in the lake!). Read our Blog on Shepherds Huts to find out more!
