Scales Plantation, the home of three great Shepherd’s hut camps, goes canvas with this family sized tent. Tucked away in a clearing in the lower part of the woodland, Eden is a great place to bring the whole tribe and be able to keep them where you can see them! Strike out into the Lake District on foot or by bike, but come back to the comfort of real beds, a hot gas-powered shower and the wood-burning range warming the tent
The main bedroom has a big double bed and there's a second room with a single and bunk beds, plus the sofabed in the main living room. All will be made up for your arrival (even the sofa bed if requested) with quality linen and towels waiting for you. With the sofa bed in sitting mode, the main living area is a spacious, comfortable place for the whole family to gather.
If the camp is booked for the dates you were after – or if you’d like to bring another group along – try the other Scales Plantation sites, Shepherd’s huts Carrock, Blencathra and Skiddaw or bell tent camp Herdwick.
