The Skiddaw camp at Scales Plantation is made up of a beautiful handcrafted Shepherd’s hut, a wooden kitchen and bathroom shelter and a compost loo, all in a clearing in the middle of the wood with views over a pond.
Simple wooden furniture gives the hut a traditional rustic feel, yet it’s extremely comfortable. The full size double bed and bunks have feather down duvets and blankets to sink into. There is a wood-burner for heating, but the interior of the hut is kept uncluttered thanks to a separate shelter housing the kitchen and bathroom just outside, which can be opened up to give the chef or bather a unique feeling of being in the woods, or tightly closed if the weather turns.
There are hobs, a fridge and a bath with a shower attached, all gas powered, plus a fire pit for more traditional campfire cookery. Groceries can be supplied by your hosts. Simply order before you get there from the list provided and get a delivery of local, seasonal produce to your camp for your arrival. The clearing includes a fire pit for outdoor cooking
