The Herdwick Huts have their own exclusive site within the magnificent grounds of Rydal Hall. Nestled beneath the Fairfield Horseshoe, this location is hard to beat!

Fantastic few days, you have thought of everything required in the hut. Lovely touches. the location speaks for itself

On-Site Attractions

You can walk straight from the huts through a stunning woodland sculpture path to access historic Rydal Hall. Great for exploring, the Hall’s extensive 34 acre grounds has ornate gardens, a Grotte, and superb tearoom. Elsewhere on site there are paths which lead past cascading waterfalls and secret pools. A Hydro Turbine has been installed on Rydal Beck – replacing the existing system and will generate enough power for 400 homes.
