These quirky and compact shepherds’ huts provide peace, tranquillity, stunning views and are just a stone’s throw from Keswick, Threlkeld and St Johns in the Vale. Are you bored of staying in dull cottages? Mire House Shepherds Huts offer something a little different. Located on the owners’ working sheep farm, their cute and compact design means you’ll have all the essentials and it’s a stay you’ll remember for all the right reasons. They’re perfect for a romantic getaway and they are excellently located to explore the Northern Lake District. They feature a double bed, a TV, a compact dining area with stools and a modern kitchenette complete with a two-ring hob, fridge, combination microwave/oven/grill and enough storage and workspace to prepare a meal for two. This takes glamping to a whole new level! It is also big enough to feature a fully fitted shower room with shower cubicle, sink, heated towel rail and toilet - just perfect for two people. Of course cooking and washing up will be the last thing on the agenda with such a great selection of dining experiences in the area. You have two great pubs in the village of Threlkeld just 1¾ miles away, so you can take a 5-minute taxi ride, or it can easily be reached on foot in about 30 minutes. It is a lovely walk and offers a great reward once you get there. Plus you can take in the sights of the surrounding fells as well as view some of the amazing wildlife including buzzards, kestrels and, of course, red squirrels. You are surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Lake District Northern Fells, with Blencathra to the front. Stepping outside this well-designed space, you have your own private outdoor seating area where you can soak up the morning sun. There is private parking as well, and access to some great local walks, wildlife and cycle routes.

About the local area

Threlkeld and St. Johns in the Vale are just to the east of Keswick in the Northern Lakes. The steep sided Blencathra looms over Threlkeld village, a popular starting point for walking the mountain; three ridges lead to the summit from the village. St. Johns in the Vale, as the name suggests is set in a peaceful valley surrounded by some of England's highest mountains.

Threlkeld's history reaches back more than 800 years; the Romans were here from the 3rd to the 8th century, followed later by the Norse. In the village the church dates back to 1578 and there are two pubs that first opened their doors in 1688.

St. Johns in the Vale is in one of the most stunning valleys in the Northern Lake District. Though only a few miles outside Keswick, the area is tranquil and unspoilt with great views of Blencathra and the Helvellyn range.

There are many places of interest within easy reach; beautiful Ullswater to the east, the lively market town of Keswick and Derwentwater to the West and Thirlmere to the south, with forest walks and fishing.
