Samlesbury Hall Shepherd’s Hut Hamlet
In the grounds of historic Samlesbury Hall sits a gathering of colourful huts; Samlesbury Hall Hamlet… a rustic and carefree alternative to your traditional hotel room.
Just as luxurious but with a rural edge, the hamlet is home to a collection of beautiful shepherd’s huts, hand crafted to keep you toasty in winter and cool in the summer. Central heated, with running water and low-wattage electricity, you won’t know you’re not in a hotel until you step outside into the tranquil clearing of this hidden corner of Lancashire.
The scattering of woodland surrounding the Hamlet offers shelter and seclusion in a corner of the picturesque grounds, and transports you far from the stress of modern life. Brush against the traditional camping ethos and dine al fresco on the picnic benches, your fire-pit barbecuing your dinner just next to the hut. We provide camping lanterns to all huts, and offer fire pits to huddle round if the evening gets chilly.
Inside relax on memory foam mattresses – the perfect complement to the European oak bunk beds (all doubles). The huts boast low-wattage electricity to keep your phone charged, as well as a cosy en-suite with running water. All huts come with a spacious shower, hot water and soft towels, along with luxury toiletries. The huts are heated and well lit, and free Wi-Fi is available in the Hall and restaurant. Chairs and tables can be taken outside to relax around the fire-pit, or take a seat at one of our picnic benches and enjoy your supper.
Things to Do In The Area
If you’re looking to explore a little you can take the kids to the adventure trail and Mayflower playground hidden in the woodland in the grounds of the Hall, or to the mini golf course by the hamlet entrance. If the Hall’s open it’s completely free to visit (don’t miss the treats in Dottie’s Wafflery!) and the award winning restaurant open for lunches only serves the finest ingredients.
