These shepherd’s huts have been built with the environment at the heart of their design - over 80% of the materials used for the build being recycled upcycled or reclaimed, all being sourced locally. The shower runs off collected rainfall, the toilet is composting (you will see no difference!) and electricity is by solar power or local green energy (seldom needed). You can see the wind farm from where power is created and this provides a minuscule carbon footprint. The huts are cosy with all fundamental facilities provided; traditionally meals would be created on top of the wood burner, and you are encouraged to give this a go using the cast iron crockery provided.
One of the main attraction of this hut is its outstanding location - it simply ‘disappears’, blending beautifully into the surrounding woods which are abundant in wildlife. The views over the estuary are ever-changing views are breathtaking, so whether you wake in the morning to the hustle and bustle of the busy woods and its inhabitants or relax in the wood-fired hot tub enjoying dark sky (no light pollution here), the stresses and strains of modern life will simply ebb away.
Self-sufficient travellers will do well here, but the Lakeland market town of Broughton-in-Furness is a just a 10-minute drive. It’s also a half-hour walk from Green Road railway station, if you want to dispense with the car for your trip.

There is plenty to enjoy in the local area, and you are sure to come back for more, time and time again.
