Rumour has it

What our lovely visitors are saying about us:

We had a fabulous weekend stay at herdwick. It certainly exceeded our expectations!! Our host Tabitha was great always there when we needed a little help.

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.

Magical. Hair and clothes smelling of bonfire, our dogs playing wild in the woods, candlelit baths and a proper bed. Rewilding for the 21st century! We have a ‘no returns’ policy on our holiday destinations usually but we’ll definitely return to Scales plantation. Thank you Tabitha and Rob.

Superb! Looked amazing on the web but exceeded all expectations in the flesh. Secluded and private, and a tantalising view of Blencathra to lure you onto the fells. Not that we needed it. Tabitha was a friendly and welcoming host with a great sense of humour. I proposed to Amanda after 3 fells while enjoying a moonlit bath. We are now engaged. We cannot recommend Scales Plantation highly enough.
