Rowan Retreat is a charming shepherd's hut located in a secluded & peaceful meadow overlooking the River Petteril near Greystoke Village, the ideal romantic retreat for two where you can both completely disconnect & relax within the surrounding nature. 

The open-plan accommodation has solar powered electricity plus LPG heating & hot water, and offers a well equipped kitchen area, along with a cosy seating/dining area which cleverly transforms into a bedroom with a fold-down comfortable king-size bed. There is a separate Scandinavian-style shower room with a shower, WC & wash basin as well as a heated towel rail. 

Through the French doors to the outside of Rowan Retreat is a table & chairs, ideal for some al-fresco dining using the Weber BBQ. You can also find a fire pit with seating, perfect for cosying up together to toast some marshmallows whilst listening to the river flow in the surrounding meadow which you can also explore. 

Rowan Retreat is set within The Blencowe Estate where you are spoilt for choice with different activities to take part in such as pony trekking, clay pigeon shooting, sailboat hire & cycle tours. For the lovers of the great outdoors, the Lake District National Park is only 4 miles away and has numerous walking routes. Penrith is just a short drive away and has plenty of pubs, restaurants & shops for you to explore.

Sorry no children or dogs. A baby under 12 months is welcome. There is an allocated parking space at Blencowe Hall where wagons for guest luggage are available. A torch is recommended as the gravel driveway leading to the shepherd's hut is unlit. No hairdryers please as these can trip the fuses on the solar power system.

Minimum 2 night stay.
