The Byres

Luxury Glamping Lodges

Three unique lodges, each with their own en-suite shower room and outdoor living space.

The Byres offer our guests a unique, cosy and comfortable glamping experience where you can enjoy the beautiful Western Lake District and Eskdale Valley whilst still enjoying some of life's home comforts, such as a comfy bed, hot shower, heating and electricity.

Converted from part of an old farm building, the Byres are unique and quite unlike your average glamping lodge.
Each has been tastefully decorated, with plenty of room inside and out. The separate shower rooms have been fitted to the highest standard with powerful hot showers, heated mirrors and heated towel rail. Harter and Birker have the most beautiful built in bunk beds consisting of two doubles on the bottom, and two singles on the top. Kepple consists of a double bed and a single bed with a small single trundle bed, which can be made up for a child.

Each of the lodges also has a sofa, and a kitchen unit with a kettle, mugs, tea spoons, drinks tumblers and a small fridge, no other cooking facilities are provided in the Byres, but we do offer a small gas griddle for hire and there are places to barbecue within the grounds.

Outside the double patio doors, you have your own covered decked area with a table and chairs so you can take in the superb views whatever the weather. On the decked area there is a sink and workspace, so you can bring along a camping stove. There is also a large lawn and picnic benches, as well as a communal fire pit.
