The Hamlet offers an array of beautifully hand crafted Shepherd’s Huts located in the grounds of an almost 700 year old historic house in Lancashire. Each one of our 28 Huts is brightly coloured and they are arranged in little clusters – perfect for any group, big or small. Get the whole extended family together, or come and relax with a group of friends for the weekend.

The huts are insulated to keep you lovely and warm in the winter, but cool in the summer. Inside you will find 2 double beds made from the finest European Oak, alongside memory foam mattresses, electricity and a lovely en suite bathroom including a spacious power shower, hot water, luxurious towels and toiletries too. Essentials for making hot drinks are in each Hut, with barbecue facilities outside.

The Hamlet is perfect for all year round; the huts are complete with full central heating and come with a camping lantern to add that rustic touch to your night’s stay. Use this lantern to light a moonlit walk around our grounds.. what will you discover?

Inside your Shepherd’s Hut are chairs and tables that can be taken outside to relax for an evening around the fire-pit or, if you would prefer, perch at one of our picnic benches and enjoy your night. Take a wander around our grounds of an evening; if you want to explore you can take the kids to our Mayflower Play Area and Adventure Trail tucked away in the woodlands.

If the Hall is open throughout your stay, head inside – it is completely free! Navigate through the historic rooms, and finish with a sweet treat in Dottie’s Wafflery, or if you’d rather something savoury, head over to our award winning Billiard Room Restaurant serving the finest breakfast and lunches with locally sourced produce.
