    The shepherd’s hut is located away from all the busy areas making it very easy to relax in peace and quiet. It’s a 10 minute drive to get to Windermere town and 1.5 hrs to Scafell Pike, depending on traffic. There is plenty of wildlife to see right from the doorstep - rabbits, red deer, and some very friendly chickens! We were given fresh eggs which was a bonus. The hut itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and there’s a BP garage/Londis and micro brewery at the bottom of the lane which is very convenient! The owners are lovely genuine people and it was great to meet them. We will be recommending the shepherds hut to our friends and family, and looking to book another stay in the future.
