A romantic hideaway in a quiet part of the Lake District, inspired by a Lakeland shepherd’s bothy to offer a cosy space with plenty of home comforts.
Shepherd's View is an easy choice for a romantic break in the Lake District. Designed with a shepherd’s bothy in mind, it is cosy, warm and inviting. As part of a luxury cottage complex (there are just four other boutique-style properties here) with three acres of tranquil gardens, Shepherd's View is an idyllic base for country walks from the door, connecting with nature, stargazing and snuggling up together in front of the log-burner. With an on-site spa and swimming pool available for your exclusive use, and massage treatments and a private chef service on request, Shepherd's View is a place for total indulgence.

Why we love this

  • Rural, peaceful Lake District location

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Full of character, Shepherd's View features exposed stone walls, natural woods, muted tones that reflect the natural landscape outside and details including sheepskin throws to snuggle up under.

On the ground floor, there’s the open-plan kitchen and living area. The bespoke kitchen has everything you’ll need to self-cater with ease, including a double oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, pots and pans, plus a peninsula with stools where you can enjoy a quick bite.

The lounge has a stylish leather sofa, a Smart TV with Freeview and Netflix built-in, and a log-burner to make chilly evenings even more romantic. The cottage also features music control pads and Bluetooth technology so that you can play songs from your own collection, or stream music.

The lounge area leads to the dining area with table and chairs and from there you can step through the glass bi-fold doors onto the patio where you can dine alfresco.

There are two bathrooms at Herdwick Cottage; one on the ground floor that is a wet room with monsoon shower, whilst upstairs there’s a bedroom with a king-size bed, TV and an en-suite with a bath. The bedroom also has a private balcony with a small table and chairs which is a wonderful spot for morning coffee.

For nature-lovers, there’s a ‘nature spotter diary’ for noting sightings of wildlife, drawing pictures, or adding photos or pressings. You’ll also find bird and nature guides to help you identify species. On a clear night, we recommend requesting some stargazing equipment to be dropped off at the cottage, wrapping up warm and seeing what magical things you can spot in the night sky.

If you arrive before 7pm you will be met by a member of staff who will show you to your cottage and how everything works. For later arrivals, there is self-check-in, but a member of staff will welcome you the following morning. Parking is available on-site, near to the cottage.

The complex on which Shepherd's View is situated is committed to minimising its environmental impact and caring for the surrounding countryside. It has a private water supply, while renewable biomass and solar power is generated on site. Recycling facilities include guest composting bins for food waste, while bark chippings are created in the grounds and used in the garden borders. There’s also a tree-planting programme, whilst nature is encouraged to thrive through measures like adding plants and wildflowers that attract pollinators including bees and butterflies. Meanwhile, eco-friendly cleaning products are used where possible and items included in welcome hampers are sourced locally.

We plant a tree for every booking we make to help offset some of the carbon emissions generated by our stays.

Location of 'Shepherd’s View


The neighbourhood

Shepherd's View is set in a quiet corner of the Lake District, on a small, luxury cottage complex with an on-site gym and a spa area with Jacuzzi, sauna and a heated 16-metre swimming pool. The pool and spa facilities are made available to one cottage at a time, so that you can experience having them all to yourself for the ultimate pampering treat (you will be asked to pre-book time slots). For an extra cost, spa treatments including aromatherapy and sports massages can be booked.

There are also three acres of gardens and an arboretum for nature-lovers to explore. Birdwatchers in particular will enjoy looking for the many garden species, as well as trying to spot woodpeckers and owls. The pond attracts frogs, newts and ducks, while bats are frequently seen, and on occasion so are wild deer.
