Deepdale Shepherd’s Huts, Lake District

Nuzzled against a dramatic fell backdrop in the heart of the Deepdale Valley, Deepdale Shepherd’s Huts take Lake District glamping to a whole new level. Just a short drive from Glenridding and Ullswater, you find yourself immersed in so much natural beauty that you can’t help but switch off from the outside world. So, it’s no surprise I came here to seek sanctuary and explore some of the best scenery the Lake District has to offer.

Deepdale Shepherd’s Huts teeter on the banks of Deepdale Beck in a quiet spot on Deepdale Hall Farm. The working farm is run by Chris, Jimmy and Robyn who are fantastic hosts, providing everything you need when required yet leaving you to enjoy your stay in peace.

Lake District Glamping with Hot Tubs

Each of the timber huts is beautifully dressed and perfectly formed with everything you need for a blissful stay. The attention to detail is impressive and the extra little touches like the Herdy mugs, fresh flowers, marshmallows for toasting over the fire pit and delicious homemade treats tick all the boxes. And the beds are so comfy that you’ll probably want to linger that little bit longer in the morning.

It’s obvious that great care has been taken to ensure the huts are as comfortable as possible. Being fully insulated and with electric heating, you always feel nice and toasty inside. In the warmer months you can fling open the glass doors to let the fresh air and sounds of nature fill the space. Don’t worry about bringing towels, bedding or kitchen utensils as everything is provided, even Wi-fi and a smart TV.

Shepherd’s Huts with Hot Tub

Each of the Shepherd’s Huts has its own outdoor seating area with a fire pit, and Swaledale and Hare’s Nook also have a private hot tub. As you sink into the hot bubbles, soaking up the fell views and listening to the sounds of nature, you’ll find that relaxation is unavoidable. Being an animal lover, I was in my element watching the various birds hovering overhead and waking up to scenes of grazing Swaledales outside the door. The atmosphere at Deepdale is stirring and you’re swept into an oasis of calm that you won’t want to leave.

Once you’ve caught your breath from settling into your Shepherd’s Hut and taking in the stunning scenery, it’s time to head into the fells and explore the surroundings. You’re spoilt for choice with the number of walks you’ll find right from the doorstep, with the likes of Brotherswater, Angle Tarn, Place Fell, Arnison Crag and Hartsop Dodd all vying for your attention.
