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.

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

"The Shepherd's Huts were so much fun to stay in and amazingly spacious inside. The play area is really lovely and fun for the kids. And the ice cream available from the Wafflery was delicious!"

The one thing they could do to improve would be to add some shelves or a little storage unit in the bathroom - there's space between the sink and the shower and it would make such a difference to be able to store your toiletries in the bathroom instead of on the table!

Clean, quiet and relaxed. Great as a family first time glamping. Kids loved it

It’s a shame the cafe and restaurant closed so early, we would have definitely gone for a meal, drinks and snacks later on in the day. I’d love to see more space for the kids to play near the huts.

The hut could have done with the floor being swept. There was no shower gel in the dispenser.
