Samlesbury Hall Shepherd's Hut Hamlet is a colourful collection of luxury converted shepherd's huts that sit in the grounds of historic Samlesbury Hall, a medieval stately home with regular exhibitions, events and guided tours.

Visit England calls it "luxury accommodation with a rural edge". The novel huts have two double beds with memory-foam mattresses, cosy central heating and ensuite bathrooms with a spacious shower, hot water, fluffy towels and luxury toiletries. There are also tea- and coffee-making facilities in the huts and free Wi-Fi throughout the site.

There's a restaurant in Samlesbury Hall -- breakfast is £10 per person (served from 8-10am, must be booked in advance), while lunch and afternoon tea is also available. Dottie's Wafflery serves up a selection of sweet treats. In the evening, escape to the on-site fire pit for a campfire, light up the barbecue or dine at one of the picnic tables dotted around the grounds.

There's plenty to keep the whole family busy on site, including the Bee & Heritage Centre, the menagerie of animals, the mini-golf course and the woodland Mayflower Playground.

The Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Ribble Valley and the Tolkien Trail -- a walking route through landscapes that inspired several locations in The Lord of the Rings -- are less than 25 minutes' drive away. Brockholes Nature Reserve is just over five minutes by car. Manchester and Liverpool are around a 50-minute drive away.

There are dog-friendly huts available -- please enquire on booking.

To have little fridge or rent ice cool box. To have more activities for children and for family ... it’s a bit boring after 4pm the Hall is close and nothing to do at all for children and the family.

The peace and quiet of the site due to the spacious area between each hut. Staff and breakfast were excellent.
Other Comments
Recycling bins would be good and maybe a service to recharge ice packs would be good for people staying more than one night. Observation only not a criticism

Spotlessly clean, comfortable hut. Lovely to sit out round the fire pit late at night chatting.
Other Comments
would like the rubbish provision to include recycling. Could be improved by some provision for keeping things (milk, wine) cool.
