Our Story...

Shepherd's Crag Glamping is a family-run, eco-responsible glamping and camping business based at Whin Yeats Farm, Newbiggin.  We have always loved the great outdoors and camping out under the stars. Having recently started a family and moved back to the area, we hope Shepherd's Crag Glamping can provide you with a great base to explore all that our beautiful home has to offer.

Our site is small - a glamping pod and touareg tent, and 3 spacious camping pitches. Shepherd's Crag Glamping is aimed at couples, small groups and families looking to relax in a peaceful countryside location in the South Lakes area of Cumbria.

Our glamping and camping pitches are all positioned to give you your own space and privacy, whilst taking advantage of the beautiful views we are so lucky to have. Looking directly out from the site we are blessed with excellent views of the Yorkshire Dales and Ingleborough. To the rear of the site is Hutton Roof Crags, Newbiggin Crags and Farleton Knott which all offer extensive views of the local area, from the Lake District right round to the sea. 

The surrounding crags are well known for walking, hiking, climbing and mountain biking enthusiasts, nestled between the Lake District National Park, The Yorkshire Dales and Silverdale & Arnside AONB. Our site has the benefit of numerous places to explore, whilst avoiding the crowds that the Lake District attracts. 

Whin Yeats Farm

Shepherd's  Crag Glamping is one of three unique holiday stay offerings on our family farm in Cumbria: we are three sisters, all with our own visions for creating off-grid, relaxing spaces for guests to enjoy. We work together, cover each other’s holidays, share ideas – you may well see all three of us at some point during your stay!

Big sister Adele runs Kelker Well Roundhouse: with stunning views, your own private space and a wood-fired hot tub, the roundhouse aims to give guests a unique and sustainable glamping experience that rests, relaxes and inspires.

Middle sister is Pam who runs Once Upon a Fell with her husband Dan. They offer private pitches aimed at very small groups and families, their site offers true off-grid escapism. As well as this they also have a Bell Tent and Arctic Cabin


Little sister Jude  is married to Joe and helps him to run Shepherd's Crag Glamping.


Tom and Claire Noblet are now the resident dairy farmers at Whin Yeats. They milk around 80 pedigree Holstein Friesian cows, which graze on meadows throughout the summer.

Falling milk prices in late 2014 prompted them to look at ways to ensure the future sustainability of their dairy herd and cheese making emerged as a way of adding value to the great milk that they are proud to produce.


The cheese is made in their new dairy, right next to the milking parlour on the farm so the milk is piped straight into the dairy from the cows – natural, creamy and a very low carbon footprint!

As well as running Shepherd's Crag Glamping Joe is the new resident shepherd at Whin Yeats farm. He is new to the role having career changed this year but loving the new challenge. The flock are a native breed, Kendal Rough Fells, and spend most of the year on Newbiggin Crag. They were a significant inspiration when naming our business and designing our logo. The tup (ram) depicted in our logo is Emperor, who you may spot around the farm or on the crag.


We are passionate about making the flock as sustainable as possible. Selling our wool traditionally does not even cover the cost of shearing the sheep so we have a number of avenues to make our wool more useful. These include as nesting material for birds and felted rugs. You can find out more about our flock and products we have available below and on our Instagram page.

When we are not shepherding, or working on our glamping and camping site, we are often making felt. We create bespoke and unique pieces of art using wool.  Follow us on Instagram or click below to see more of our adventures with wool and felt...
