If you are looking to get away from it all, and enjoy some amazing views and peace and quiet, then look no further.

Set in its own little corner on our 300 acre farm, the hut enjoys spectacular views from the sun rising over the fells to it setting in the Solway coast.

The lack of light pollution makes it an excellent place for stargazing.

Don’t let the colder months put you off, with warm fleecy bedding, and log burner, you’ll be super cosy

The space
The hut is very simplistic; think olden days (with a present day twist). It has a comfy double bed, a table and stools for meals looking out at the fells, and a lovely wood burner for those chilly, winter evenings.

A short walk across the field will bring you to our newly renovated shower block. Aptly named “The Wash House”, in olden days it was used as a place to wash the milk and butter churns, and do the laundry. Today it has toasty under floor heating, a nice hot electric shower and changing area, a sink and a washing machine, and drying racks for those waterproofs to dry out on overnight. An iron, ironing board and hair dryer are provided to get ready for a good night out in the local towns, or pubs and restaurants .

Towels are provided in the Wash House, or you may wish to bring your own. They are there should you need one.

There is also a separate door leading into the toilet, with an additional sink. An outside tap allows you to wash off muddy gear before hanging it to dry.

The hut sits in its own little fenced off area, mains water tap, and fire basket. Perfect for sunset dining, or roasting marshmallows under the stars. This fenced off area allows guests with dogs to be able to take them off of a lead to get some run around time. This is of course, I’d you deem safe to do so.

Going inside the hut, you will find it cosy and well equipped with everything you should need during your stay. There's a camping stove, pans, plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, all important corkscrew and bedding is provided. There are lights and a charging station for phones and ipads (must be USB chargers) which are run by the solar panel. In case of rainy nights, there is a camping toilet under the bed for convenience. Just bring your clothes and food (and wellies!)

Where you’ll be

Branthwaite, England, United Kingdom

Situated on the outskirts of the quiet, picturesque, farming village of Branthwaite. Ideally located for exploring the coast and the lakes, and within a 30 minute drive radius are the towns of Whitehaven, Workington, Maryport, Cockermouth and Keswick, lakes, fells, forests and the beach!

The Wild Duck pub is a 20 minute stroll away from the hut (or a two minute drive) or the equally lovely Royal Yew pub in Dean is just over a mile away.

Hi my name is Stephanie. Since June 2020, I have taken over Near Edge Airbnb from my mum (Beckie) as she is no longer able to run them due to ill health. I look forward to hopefully meeting you soon :-)

During your stay

I like to be here to meet and greet you and show you around, but will then leave you in peace to enjoy your time away. Although, there are some occasions where I may not be around on arrival.

Our newly set up check in guide allows flexibility for guests to arrive on their own, without my need to be there upon their arrival.

However, I am always on hand via text, or usually around the farm if you need anything at all.
