Pretty, shepherd hut with a really romantic and cosy feel, lots of thoughtful touches make this the perfect romantic retreat or explorers base.

Whether you’re visiting the area as a dog-loving couple on a romantic break or as a solo hiker with canine companionship, this beautifully presented shepherd’s hut offers a great spot to call your own. Sleeping two guests and one four-pawed pal, this studio space is ideal for any getaway. Local to the bustling town of Keswick, this stunning property is surrounded by an abundance of dog-friendly days out in the Lake District. Let your pet sniff out some adventure when exploring Derwentwater or Ullswater, or let Fido lead the way when summiting one of the area’s fantastic mountains.

Despite its compact size, this thoughtfully presented property has been finished to the highest standard and feels bright, cheerful and spacious. To one side of the property sits an inviting double bed with TV – perfect for sinking into after a long day of exploring. Opposite you’ll find a kitchenette and small dining space with plenty of room to lay a dog bed and food bowl. Completing the property is a small WC with shower and a generous lawn and patio space outside, perfect for alfresco evenings and letting Rover roam about.

Pack your doggy treats and enjoy a wander into nearby Keswick (4 miles), a traditional Lakeland town which sits on the banks of peaceful Derwentwater (5 miles). This lake, along with Ullswater nearby (10.5 miles), offers miles of waterside walking routes and even the chance to take a dog-friendly boat trip. Let your pooch stretch those legs with a hike up one of the Lakes’ glorious mountains such as Blencathra (4 miles) or Skiddaw (8.5 miles), and make a well-deserved trip to a dog-friendly local pub on your route home.

Im 26 and this was my first time travelling away on my own with my dog, who is big & daft and also only just turned 2. I couldnt have picked a better place to go for my first time, although it was daunting at first, I felt so at ease and peaceful. We had all the amenities we needed and the privacy I was hoping for too. The little welcome goodies weRead morere the cherry on top! I will definitely be coming back and maybe treat myself to a hot tub next time! Sophie & Noah x Hide

I booked this as a little get away for my partners birthday. We were blown away by the cabin. The cabin has everything you need, quiet, and done to a high spec. We will be returning again but this time we will be adding the hottub. We would recommend this place to anyone location and views are amazing with all your needs being only a few miles awayRead more in the local town. So if you are looking for a getaway then look no further. I couldn't recommend these guys enough. Thanks for a great weekend Hide

I slept like a log on bed which was very comfortable. Location was very peaceful and just a short drive to Keswick and thirlmere which is where we spentRead more time . Had to have dog on a lead on premises but understandable as there were sheep/lambs ..highly recommended - I am returning in the near future Hide
