Amazing stay with Amazing views. Shepherds hut was immaculate and warm and cosy. Weather wasn't the best but didn't let that stop us from exploring the area and even little drive up to Gretna green. Definitely would stay and recommend blencathra hut.

We have had the most lovely time in one of the shepherds huts this weekend. On arrival we found it to be very clean, tidy and the mince pies and scones were a lovely surprise. The hut was very cosy and we will definitely be booking again in the future. The 8 minute drive into Keswick was perfect. The hot tub was clean and maintained good temperaturRead moree all weekend.

The hut was beautiful and clean with everything you could need for a short break. The views from the hut were stunning and having the opportunity for a soak in the hot tub after a long day was the icing on the cake.

Cottage was perfect. We took pictures of the mountains 10miles away but never thought we was situated in front of them. Amazing view and even got to see the USAF in action. If any negative the fairy lights around the hot tub cause a little light pollution when gazing but other than that the hot tub was amazing to. We spoke about coming back to the Read morelakes but would anywhere else top the experience we had them 2 days. You made a birthday girl very happy thank you so much. We've recommended you. Hide

This little hut was lovely, clean, well equipped, and sweet. The little touches of the fresh milk, Home made scones and biscuits made it all the more special. The hot tub was lovely to relax in after a nice walk. The views of the hills were beautiful. Lovely village pub a mile or so away. Lovely long walks on Derwent a few miles further.
