Herdwick Cabin

Sleeps: 2 | From £150 / night (minimum 2 nights) | Changeover days: MONDAY, WEDNESDAY OR FRIDAY

A secluded corner of countryside

Situated in a quiet corner of the Lake District, Herdwick Cabin is a luxurious retreat for two, offering panoramic views of the fells surrounding Ullswater, luxury interiors and a wood fired hot tub.

Clad using locally sourced Larch, this L-shaped cabin with wheelchair access via a ramp offers open-plan living space with large windows that allow for the outside indoors. The bespoke-built cabin offers a cosy open-plan living space with panoramic views.

Modern interiors, carefully chosen by Kate, include green and pink tones to create a soft, calming space to relax and restore within the Lake District countryside.

The living space features a dining area, a cosy soft green sofa with deep-filled cushions, a fully-equipped salmon pink kitchen complete with Joseph Joseph accessories, a boiling water tap, Robert Welch cutlery and Portmeirion crockery. 

The super-king bedroom comes with a built-in wardrobe, warm down duvet, Egyptian cotton sheets and a floor-to-ceiling glazed door that leads out onto the private decked area.

The eco-friendly cabin is powered by solar panels with underfloor heating and insulation up to the highest of standards to ensure a warm and toasty stay during the colder months. The cabin combines the convenience of modern amenities with the chance to unwind in nature.

Outside the cabin, a private decked area is the perfect space to take in the view with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine and the wood-fired hot tub is perfect for warming up after a day out on the fells. 

Herdwick Cabin sleeps two adults and is perfect for a cosy couple’s getaway or Lake District adventure weekend and is dog-friendly.
