Over-the-Moon Luxury Shepherds Hut

1 unit · Glamping5 acres · Ruthin, Wales
'Over the Moon’/'Dros y Lleuad' luxury Shepherds Hut is nestled in our enclosed orchard on our small holding. One of the things people love about staying here is the amazing views - including watching the moon rise over the mountains from the king-sized cabin bed. The developing Clwydian dark sky region means there are great views of the night sky. Tucked away in Maes Heddwch (Peaceful field) at the southern end of the Vale of Clwyd this is a great base to discover this lesser known corner of North Wales. We have done a lot of work since Google Maps took their pictures! Including planting tress and hedgerows. It is a lovely spot for a retreat from the hustle and bustle, sought out by walkers, cyclists, bird watchers, red squirrel seekers, foragers, neolithic stone hunters, artists, writers, historians and others. We are more than happy to share what we have discovered about the area before or during your visit.

Shepherd's huts near Blackburn with fishing guide

Overview

At first glance, the big textile town of Blackburn appears to have little to offer outdoor enthusiasts. But captivating countryside erupts immediately outside town, with the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and Witton Weavers Way providing two green links to more rural areas. Exposed moors criss-crossed by walking trails await within the West Pennine Moors and Forest of Bowland, while nearby Ribble Valley connects charming villages and historic sites while being overlooked by more hilly moors. Campers should make for the Ribble Valley village of Langho or the town of Clitheroe for pitches by a latticework of lovely walking routes.

Where to go

Forest of Bowland AONB

The Forest of Bowland is primarily made up of lonely moors and fells soaring above Blackburn to the north. Hurst Green, nine miles from Blackburn, is the closest AONB town, from where campers can explore via Ribble Valley Jubilee Trail. Clitheroe is the handiest place with campsites.

West Pennine Moors

A nationally little-known area of stark moorland, the West Pennine Moors are an upland outlier of the Pennine Range. Lower-lying than the main Pennine Hills, they nevertheless feel wild in many places. This is the closest real countryside to Blackburn, swooping up beyond Darwen, four miles south. The Witton Weavers Way is a handy trail for discovering the reservoir-dotted moors on foot. Campsites are scarce though—the nearest is on the west side of the moors near Chorley.

Ribble Valley

Northeast of town, the Ribble Valley is the name of the hilly land surrounding the sinuous River Ribble and the area around Clitheroe, 10 miles from Blackburn. The Ribble Valley Jubilee Trail, a circular three-day trek also running through the Forest of Bowland AONB, begins at Whalley and delineates the region’s southeast side closest to Blackburn. Clitheroe has a couple of campsites, and you can pitch in the shadow of barren legend-entrenched Pendle Hill too.

Ribble Estuary

Head west from Blackburn for 13 miles and you’ll reach Penwortham, from where footpaths fan out along the Ribble Estuary, one of England’s largest saltmarshes. It’s an outstanding area for wildlife-watching, especially for wildfowl, as half the estuary is protected as an NNR. The estuary south of the river features numerous hiking trails, including the tail-end of the Ribble Way, as well as hides for bird-spotting and camping overlooking the marshes at Hergest Bank.

When to go

Winters last a long time and summers are mild in Blackburn. July and August get the maximum average temperatures (19°C) and coincide with the summer school holidays: the busiest time in the surrounding countryside destinations. April and May get the least rainfall and make the best hiking months. Winter and spring are best for birdwatching on the Ribble Estuary. May brings Darwen Live nearby, the UK’s biggest free music festival.
