What Can I Expect

Gorgeous glamping in lovely Lancashire! This little hamlet of hand-crafted shepherd's huts is ready to welcome you on a one or two-night break for up to four people. Time to pack your bag and go to this delightful corner of the country!

These glamping huts are nestled together in a rather unique location. Mid-way between Preston and Blackburn you'll find Samlesbury Hall. It's an eye-catching medieval black and white, half-timber framed house that is steeped in history. Spending a night or two in the grounds of the hall on a glamping break is a real treat for all ages.

The gathering of colourful huts is in a quiet spot and whilst being rural and rustic, they do have all those little luxuries you want. Each one has an en-suite with hot shower and toilet (so no getting lost in the dark trying to find the toilet block!) and a set of double bunk beds (one double bed above the other).

The huts are all heated, so you're nice and toasty and are kitted out with tea and coffee-making facilities, lighting and sockets to charge phones etc. There are no cooking facilities inside, but there's a fire pit outside and you're welcome to BBQ. But in all honesty, with the Hall's restaurant (open for breakfast and lunch) and Dottie's Wafflery, plus the plethora of local eateries in the village, you won't be wanting to cook anyway.

What you will want to be doing during your glamping break is visiting and sightseeing. This part of Preston is very rural, with lovely farm shops, country parks and the River Ribble running through the Lancashire countryside. Of course, you must make sure you take time to visit Samlesbury Hall itself, with regular guided tours, events and activities all of which are free.

Our special tip if you go with the kids: take torches and explore the grounds after dark. It's great fun. Then in daylight, don't miss the playground and the mini golf, then go and say hi to the rescue animals that also live on the estate.

We think going glamping in Lancashire is a great way to spend a weekend or a midweek break. Don't forget, each hut sleeps up to four (kids or adults), so they represent great value for money too. Being heated and insulated, they're open all year round, so you can be a happy glamper in any season!
