Luxury shepherd's huts with wood-fired hot tubs and an adjoining log cabin for extra space

What did you do during the coronavirus lockdown? Learn a new language? Plant a vegetable garden? Eat your own bodyweight in raspberry swirl ice cream (asking for a friend)? Lisa and Phil created a glamping site. And what a glamping site it is.

Six miles from Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales, Copy House Farm is home to two perfectly appointed shepherd’s huts, with south-facing views and hot tubs from which to enjoy them. Inside they feature double beds, compact kitchen spaces and en-suite shower rooms, while every attention has been given to the finer details – think Abraham Moon fabrics and hotel-grade, pocket-sprung mattresses with a choice of summer or winter duvets. In the morning you can enjoy a Nespresso coffee as you plan your day’s activities; perhaps a walk along the Pendle Way, which runs through the farm, or a drive to Malham Cove or Gordale Scar.

One of the fantastic features at Copy House Hideaway is the way each shepherd’s hut has an adjoining log cabin, where the hot tub and extra seating is found. This seems to vastly extend the space and is excellent for cooler months, while a large sliding door also lets you open the cabin up to give a sense of being outdoors in summer.

From the complimentary “Out of Eden” toiletry packs to the milk and local butter ready-stocked in your fridge, Phil and Lisa also understand the finer points of hosting. Lisa was a long-haul aeroplane cabin manager for over 30 years before coming down from 42,000 feet and working in hospitality, so she certainly knows how to be a good host and is happy to help with pub recommendations, day-trip suggestions and good walking routes. And with the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and Nidderdale AONB all less than half an hour’s drive away, you’ll never be short of options.

Details

Facilities

Huts feature a double bed (converts into a sofa; towels and bedding all provided), a log burner, seating, a dining table and a compact kitchen area with a fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, a two-ring induction hob and all the crockery, cutlery and utensils you’ll need. Basic foodstuffs and condiments are provided. Huts are en-suite, with a shower, flushing loo and basin, with toiletries provided. There are heated towel rails and USB charging points. Free WiFi connection. Outside, you’ll find a wood-fired hot tub, a seating area, boot storage, an infra-red heater, a firepit and BBQ and beautiful festoon lighting. Parking is directly behind each hut. Safe bike storage is available.

Suitable For

People who want to get away from it all. Ideal for walkers and cyclists with many outdoor pursuits and places of interest within easy reach.

Nearby

The Pendle Way runs through the field next to the glamping site, making the place ideal for walkers (which takes in Pendle Hill, amongst other top spots). But while the local walking is excellent (and the views from Copy House Farm are sure to draw you out), for most people the real hiking attractions are a short drive away in the Yorkshire Dales. It takes less than 15 minutes to drive to Skipton (the delightful town, an attraction in its own right), from where you cross the national park boundary. It’s 25 minutes to Bolton Abbey, around the same to Malham Cove and a touch more to Gordale Scar, while walking the Dales Way up to Appletreewick (great pubs en route) is popular, with ample spots to swim in the River Wharfe during summer.

Food & Drink

There are a couple of good pubs within a mile of the shepherd’s huts. The Craven Heifer (01282 843007) in Kelbrook is recently renovated in a modern style, with a separate bar and high-class dining areas (plenty of outdoor seating to rear), while Black Lane Ends (01282 863070), on the old road from Colne to Skipton overlooking the Pennine Moors, is an independent free house with an excellent reputation for food (served daily from 12–9pm in the two rooms either side of the bar). It’s particularly good for walkers on the Pendle Way, as is The Hare & Hounds (01535 631200) in Lothersdale, a popular community pub with a large main bar with fires at both ends. Four beers are always available on handpulls, one of which is "Lothersale Blonde". For a lighter daytime bite, try Utopia (01756 692522) at Broughton Hall.
