Luxury shepherd's huts with wood-fired hot tubs and an adjoining log cabin for extra space

What did you do during the coronavirus lockdown? Learn a new language? Plant a vegetable garden? Eat your own bodyweight in raspberry swirl ice cream (asking for a friend)? Lisa and Phil created a glamping site. And what a glamping site it is.

Six miles from Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales, Copy House Farm is home to two perfectly appointed shepherd’s huts, with south-facing views and hot tubs from which to enjoy them. Inside they feature double beds, compact kitchen spaces and en-suite shower rooms, while every attention has been given to the finer details – think Abraham Moon fabrics and hotel-grade, pocket-sprung mattresses with a choice of summer or winter duvets. In the morning you can enjoy a Nespresso coffee as you plan your day’s activities; perhaps a walk along the Pendle Way, which runs through the farm, or a drive to Malham Cove or Gordale Scar.

One of the fantastic features at Copy House Hideaway is the way each shepherd’s hut has an adjoining log cabin, where the hot tub and extra seating is found. This seems to vastly extend the space and is excellent for cooler months, while a large sliding door also lets you open the cabin up to give a sense of being outdoors in summer.

From the complimentary “Out of Eden” toiletry packs to the milk and local butter ready-stocked in your fridge, Phil and Lisa also understand the finer points of hosting. Lisa was a long-haul aeroplane cabin manager for over 30 years before coming down from 42,000 feet and working in hospitality, so she certainly knows how to be a good host and is happy to help with pub recommendations, day-trip suggestions and good walking routes. And with the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and Nidderdale AONB all less than half an hour’s drive away, you’ll never be short of options.

Shepherd Huts
Cosy little hut with great views!
We loved our stay at the Heather Hut! Amazing views (even though the weather didn't allow us to completely enjoy it, still was incredible). Our dog was really excited to explore the surroundings (always on a lead) and we even got a gift of some treats for her which she appreciated. Really quiet and cosy. We took advantage of the wood burner to warm the room but it's not necessary as it's really warm with the heater. Fully equiped with everything we would need for our limited time stay. The hot tub room, although cold (due to extreme cold temperatures at the time) was one of the highlights of our stay. Phil welcomed us and the communication was excellent from the start! We also appreciated all the information about the area and places we could visit with our pup. Can't wait to book again!

We cannot recommend this place enough! Lisa and Phil made us feel so welcome, such a lovely touch having welcome drinks ready on arrival. The hut was kitted out with absolutely everything we could have needed. We already can’t wait to come back - thank you so much!

Gorgeous Shepherd’s Hut break
We had an amazing time at Copyhouse Hideaway Shepherd’s Hut. All the little touches and attention to detail made for such a lovely break. The scenery was beautiful as was the accommodation and hot tub. From reading the reviews it was everything we expected and more. We are looking forward to returning and would recommend.

Lisa and Phil are amazing host, really friendly and welcoming. The Heather Hut is the one we stayed in and was really nice/cozy with amazing view of the countryside. I payed extra to have the hot tub heat for when we arrived and it was the best decision as the hot tub stays warm the next day so great for a morning dip. Lisa provided us with bread and milk with refreshments which was really sweet! Xx Defo be coming back. Xx

Thanks for a lovely stay
We loved the hot tub and the fire pit. We loved that it was isolated and quiet, with a beautiful view. Relaxation was our most important aim. And the shepherd's hut really delivered :)

From the host
Two beautifully appointed shepherd’s huts with panoramic views along the Yorkshire/Lancashire border. Each hut has an adjoining log cabin with an indoor seating area and eco hot tub. Everything has been done to a high standard, with a Krups coffee machine, Lloydloom dining chairs, Abraham Moon fabrics and hotel grade pocket sprung mattresses with a choice of duvets (summer or winter). The huts have a Hobbit log burning stove and a fully functioning kitchen area with an induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, toaster and kettle. The bathrooms have a heated towel rail, complimentary “Out of Eden” toiletry packs, hair dryer, shower, small sink and flushing toilet. Fresh water wood fired hot tubs are housed in adjoining log cabins which also have a seating area with panoramic views over the countryside and infra-red heating for when it gets cold. Outside there are seats and tables along with a fire pit which doubles up as a BBQ. Soft lighting sets the scene for a relaxing evening. Outdoor rugs, bed linen, towels, bathrobes and bike storage are all included. A starter pack of kiln dried logs are included, further packs are available by request. Parking is directly behind the hut. Free WiFi is provided in each hut.
Nearby attractions

The Pendle Way runs through the field next to the glamping site, making the place ideal for walkers (which takes in Pendle Hill, amongst other top spots). But while the local walking is excellent (and the views from Copy House Farm are sure to draw you out), for most people the real hiking attractions are a short drive away in the Yorkshire Dales. It takes less than 15 minutes to drive to Skipton (the delightful town, an attraction in its own right), from where you cross the national park boundary. It’s 25 minutes to Bolton Abbey, around the same to Malham Cove and a touch more to Gordale Scar, while walking the Dales Way up to Appletreewick (great pubs en route) is popular, with ample spots to swim in the River Wharfe during summer.

Food and drink

There are a couple of good pubs within a mile of the shepherd’s huts. The Craven Heifer (01282 843007) in Kelbrook is recently renovated in a modern style, with a separate bar and high-class dining areas (plenty of outdoor seating to rear), while Black Lane Ends (01282 863070), on the old road from Colne to Skipton overlooking the Pennine Moors, is an independent free house with an excellent reputation for food (served daily from 12–9pm in the two rooms either side of the bar). It’s particularly good for walkers on the Pendle Way, as is The Hare & Hounds (01535 631200) in Lothersdale, a popular community pub with a large main bar with fires at both ends. Four beers are always available on handpulls, one of which is "Lothersale Blonde". For a lighter daytime bite, try Utopia (01756 692522) at Broughton Hall.
