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.

Called "luxury accommodation with a rural edge" by Visit England, 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.

We had a great stay as the inside of the huts is lovely as is the Hall and grounds. The future set-up of the huts has so much potential. However, there are a few changes that need to occur for these huts to be AMAZING and the hamlet that they are advertised as: 1. The location of the huts is a little odd as it is next to a dirt track and what looked like a building site - this did mean a nice view from the hut and there was no privacy as from 8 in the morning there were workmen and trucks passing through. I think they maybe building more and this set-up was new which would suggest this will get better with time. 2. There should be a privacy sign or some way to indicate that the huts are occupied as there were LOTS of groups of people walking round and looking into the huts (when I was breastfeeding my son!) and asking us to look into the huts when we were inside. It is great that people are excited about the huts and we understand this is the best way to sell them but it did not feel private and safe

The hall was magnificent, the huts very cozy and the fire pit was lovely to sit round as it went dark.

We could have done with an extra chair to take outside so we could both sit comfortably round the fire pit - it would have been even trickier if there had been 4 of us!

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
