  • "Our break at the Pleasant Hut was wonderful!"

    Jackie met us as we arrived and welcomed us to the farm and showed us our haven for the next few days. The hut was well appointed, beautifully finished. It had everything you could need and we even got a complimentary bottled of wine (nice wine by the way!). What was not to like? The view was stunning, open fields, cows, sheep and horses, just the sound of the wind through the trees, heaven. The beach was just across the road from the farm entrance and you could walk for miles. Make no mistake, this is not a tourist destination but if you are looking for peace and relaxation this is a lovely bolt hole! I know we will come back. You could sit outside and have a fire in the fire pit and there was also a bbq if you wanted. We really had a lovely time, main point of amusement was me trying to get into bed at night, me being a short person, perhaps provide a step for diminutive people

    Jackie made sure we had everything we needed and the unit was like new. Situated on a farm on the coast the setting is very peaceful and a great place to be able to explore the surrounding area. Highly recommend!

  • "I really enjoyed my stay in the shepherds hut, a great location for my visit and not too far from the southern lakes."

    I arrived quite late and Jackie came out to the end of the lane to meet me, which was very kind. The hut was perfect for one with a very comfy and cozy bed and the complimentary bottle of beer went down a treat.

    Thank you for your feed back.Much appreciated .Glad you enjoyed your stay .Nice to meet you .Jackie & Chris Property Owner

  • "Wonderfully well appointed cottage not far from Ulverston."

    We stayed in the middle of winter, and despite the typical "winter in the lakes" weather the hut was warm and cosy and such a pleasant place to relax and unsigned for the weekend. Lots of really nice touches and attention to detail, such as providing everything we needed to start the firepit, cosy decorations to make the place seem homely and everything you could possible need, including board games and tea and coffee making facilities. They also went above and beyond for self catering and provided fry light and condiments. we just had to bring food and cook! Very good communication with the owner Jackie who welcomed us in a howling gale and took us down to show us all the features of the hut. She also provided a phone number and offered to help if we were stuck with anything. A very welcoming and cosy place to stay
