Samlesbury Hall Shepherd's Hut Hamlet is a colourful collection of luxury converted shepherd's huts in the grounds of historic Samlesbury Hall (open Sunday-Friday), a 13th-century stately home with regular exhibitions, events and guided tours.

Called "luxury accommodation with a rural edge" by Visit England, the huts have two double beds with memory-foam mattresses, 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.

Samlesbury Hall has a restaurant serving breakfast (8:30-10am Monday Friday and 9-10:30am at weekends; must be pre-booked), lunch and afternoon tea. Dottie's Wafflery serves up a selection of sweet treats. In the evening, you can gather around 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, a menagerie of animals, a mini golf course and a woodland 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 away by car. Manchester and Liverpool are around 50 minutes' drive away.

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

May be worth putting a washing up block on site, provide 4 chairs, improve information on website, ie bedding included, bring extra logs for the fire pit, no fridge included. We had everything we needed as I pack everything you could possibly need, however other guests did not know there was no fridge and did not bring chairs for themselves.
