Scales Plantation, the home of fabulous luxury Shepherd’s hut camps, has gone canvas! Their latest installation is a cosy tented retreat in a high, private corner of the woods looking out over the hills and the dry stone walls of the surrounding farm. The camp was named after the farm’s sheep, a local breed famed for their resilience. But you'll need no such fortitude at Herdwick.

Wander from the comfy beds in the tents to the fully equipped cabin with it's spacious kitchen and dining area and bathroom. There's also the fire pit for the more adventurous outdoor cooks. The compost loo is in the same clearing and all facilities are only for guests of Herdwick. All around you is natural beauty, with the Lake District minutes away. Strike out from the camp into the hills or even take a gyroplane flight for a truly spectacular view! 

If the camp is booked for the dates you were after, try the other Scales Plantation sites, shepherd’s huts CarrockBlencathra and Skiddaw or family safari tent Eden.

Our guests say...

We wanted to stay somewhere different - remote - and to have a complete change from city life. This is exactly what we got. For us it was a welcome adventure - different and austere in some ways - but, ultimately, cosy and comfortable.

We had a lovely time staying at herdwick camp, if a little wet and rainy. Our hosts were lovely, we especially enjoyed the layout of the site with the little woodland clearings containing each camp. We also had a lot of fun with the fire pit and bbq!

Long weekend break for 4 family and friends...first time under canvas and beneath the stars. We learnt a lot about campfires and compost toilets but had a wonderful weekend in the woods.

My wife, two dogs and myself really enjoyed ourselves. The owners were really welcoming, made us feel at home. The site itself was brilliant enough room around you to feel alone. The cabin was really roomy and log burners were more than ample to heat both tents and log cabin. I would definatly recommend this break to anyone the only down side is we had to leave.

Thomas

Very enjoyable, the cabin and tents were located in their own idyllic and tranquil spot. Given a very warm welcome, and we had a great week overall spending most of our nights around the camp fire.

Fabulous Stay - As a group we had booked the whole site and we barely saw the kids as they made great use of the woods and paths.

We had a fab time at herdwick. We loved the site and the facilities and thoroughly enjoyed chilling out round the firepit. And we both slept so well!

sue

We were amazed by all the space just for us! Loved the decor and our private outdoor space with lots of seating options. Tab was friendly and welcoming and despite obviously being very busy was able to help us out when we needed something. I really enjoyed having all the kitchen space and 3 cooking options - I even made home-made crumpets and pizza during our stay!

Even the owner Tabitha was so nice and made sure all of our needs were met! Fantastic stay, your choice to be convinienced or challenge yourself!

Faye

I went there with some friends, hoping to chill out from the hussle and bustle of daily life and that's exactly what this place can do. The hosts were very helpful delivering extra wood etc but it's the tranquility that really makes this place, we came back on a Mon and by the Friday we were sorting out dates to go again.

29/05/2015

Louise

Our stay at the Scales Plantation was utter perfection. Our host Tabitha was extremely welcoming and easy to contact should we have required assistance, and we felt as though the site/accomodation was described accurately on the C&S site.

18/05/2015

Daniel

Fantastic 3-night stay in the very cozy cabin. Loved our "private" field of sheep with the adorable little lambs, and the cabin and tents were so cozy and fun. Our children just loved "roughing it", while as parents we basked in the knowledge of a fine spot to return to after a day out in the rain. Not the best of weather that particular weekend, but the cabin made it all fine because we stayed snug playing games, coloring, or roasting marshmallows over the fire.

01/05/2015

Eliza

Was lovely, very isolated, everything was clean, massive woods for walking in, tents and cabin where great

"Yes we had an awesome time and i have told all my friends how great it was and shared the link on Facebook. Location was stunning and child friendly for our 7 & 10 year olds. Sunny weather meant we could enjoy all the outdoor facilities to the max."

18/04/2014

Mandy

We had a wonderful time. A very unique, beautiful and romantic place to stay and the fact that dogs were allowed - an added bonus!

13/08/2011

Amy

"Tabitha, the host couldn't have been more helpful. She sorted a mountain bike trip for us, bought and delivered food. It was all so lovely and we would recommend it to everyone."

Meet your hosts

north lake

The concept behind Scales Plantation was born through Tab and Rob’s desire to share the sensational beauty of their home withthe rest of the world. The working sheep and cattle farm sits roughly 1000 feet above sea level where life on an upland farm is not always easy. Nevertheless, the breathtaking views over the North Lake Fells easily make up for all the hard work and long hours.

Environmental Policy

Tab and Rob are working hard to safeguard their little slice of Cumbria for future generations. With solar powered electricity, self composting loos and enthusiastic recycling, the green ethos at Scales Plantation is clearly visible. The family is involved in numerous environmental schemes. They have cleared acres of woodland to preserve and encourage wildlife breeding grounds and laid over 1km of hedgerow, planted over 2500 upland hardwoods and created seven ponds and wetland environments. They have also set aside 100 acres of moorland for heather regeneration to provide habitat for grouse.

squirrel

Wildlife

Scales Plantation is home to a variety of wildlife. The woodlands of the Lake District remain one of the few areas of the country where the red squirrel can still be found in the wild. Cumbria is rich in birdlife and over 200 bird species are recorded in Cumbria in any one year. Many visitors to the Lake District in recent years have shared in the excitement of seeing ospreys breeding in craggy woodland near Bassenthwaite Lake.

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise
 
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?
 
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

Agency Terms & Conditions

Except where otherwise specified, we Sawday’s Canopy & Stars Ltd Company No 09088366 of Merchants House, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RW act only as an Agent in respect of all bookings we take and/or make on your behalf.

You are also advised to confirm all changes to our Customer Services Department by calling 0117 204 7830. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your Booking prior to travel. Whilst we will always try to help, we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met.

 

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.  

 

2.3 Owner’s General Cancellation Charges:

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you. 

 

2.3.4  Cancellation insurance is available but will be a third party arrangement and not involve Canopy & Stars or the Owner in any way.

 

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

 

Special note: Generally Owners will charge the above cancellation and amendment charges, however we must stress that these are a guide only and charges may differ from those shown here depending on the Owner. The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.

 

4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.

 

5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.

 

6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;

OR

(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;

OR

(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.

 

7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

 

8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.

 

12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

 

13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
