A truly lovely place for a quiet getaway. Everything about the hut is lovely and the Alpacas are adorable! The hut was clean, and so cozy. We loved that the ceiling was painted as the night sky, and the fairy lights twinkling with the fire in the evening. Great shower and bathroom/kitchen facilities with hot running water and flushing toilet. We had an amazing weekend.
The location is beautiful and the countryside view is stunning. Definitely make time to visit the local Ice Cream Parlour, which has a cafe as well as takeaway. If you are looking for shopping, maybe give Blackpool a go, we drove to Lancaster and the drive was lovely but the city centre was disappointing. We also tried to get a taxi to the pub recommended by Jessica, but we’re too far out for them to pick us up, so make sure you have a designated driver.

What a quaint place to stay, so beautiful and romantic. The decoration above the bed at the sleeping end of the hut is amazing. We loved the firepit being inside and made it so cosy of an evening, will have to come stay again when it's colder (who knew complaining about the lovely sunny weekend weather we had would feature!!!)
It you get chance to visit Farm Yard Brew Co. it's walking distance and just great.
We enjoyed feeding the alpacas before we left too.
Lovely hosts and a very enjoyable weekend, thank you.

So so many kind touches. Even better than how it looks in the photos. The dreamiest winter escape, we felt like we’d stepped into a cabin in Finland. Would recommend for anyone! Alpacas were really sweet too

We had a great time at the grillhut, despite the storm! Jess was really helpful, and the hut is lovely and cosy, especially when it's windy and rainy outside.
We also enjoyed meeting the alpacas and the recommendation for the farmyard ales which had a great atmosphere on Saturday night!

This is an incredible place to stay. Absolutely magical. You won't regret staying here. The check in was simple and easy, amazing communication from the host, Jessica. Spent two evenings here, and it's two nights we won't ever forget. The alpacas and other farm animals, that can be hand fed, really add a special touch to this place. Seriously, if you're thinking about staying here, just do it.

Absolutely fantastic weekend in the grill hut! Loved every minute and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Jessica was an amazing host, offered early check in, made sure we had everything we needed for the stay and even left some complimentary ales from the local brewery!
The hut was clean, cosy and warm, even though the rain barely stopped on our second day!
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a unique getaway.

What a find this place is! Quaintest little hut in a lovely quiet, private setting. Loved everything about it, the grill hut had everything we needed for our stay and Jess is a lovely host. The icing on the cake was feeding the alpacas, sheep and hens!
Would recommend this place as a lovely getaway from it all.

Sandvilla Gril hut is truly a magical and incredible experience. Jessica and Lee are such wonderful and accommodating hosts. We couldn’t have had a better time if we tried! Everything about this place is perfect, the hut it’s self is so cosy and beautifully decorated, the open fire for cooking is so much fun to us and the cookbooks provided were extremely helpful and lead to excellent nacho making! Although you are on a campsite the whole experience felt so private and secluded, feeding the alpacas was brilliant they are so friendly! Lee and Jess really have thought of everything to make the stay truly wonderful. We can’t thank them enough.

This was our second visit to Sand Villa Grill Hut. It was even better then we remembered, my partner and I loved it so much last year that this year he chose it to propose to me there. The Grill hut is such a magical, fairy tale stay, complete with all the amenities you need for a glamping holiday. Located in a beautiful part of the country. We would highly recommend hiring the pizza oven for the evening as this provided great entertainment and food at a very reasonable price. We used the bus just outside the site to get to Lancaster and had a fab time there on the second day, the bus was quick and easy to use. We can’t wait to book again next year. Thank you to Jess and Lee for being such wonderful and friendly hosts.

We had a wonderful stay in this cosy hut and enjoyed using the fire, feeding the alpacas and making pizzas with the pizza oven provided! Would recommend to other couples looking for a few nights away in very cute accommodation within an hour of the Lake District.

Jess and lee, were fantastic hosts. The grill hut was just what me and my partner needed, an escape from reality and a chance to unwind. They thought of everything possible, to make the stay as lovely at is was. We stayed when there was a storm, however the hut was super warm and cosy. The location was fantastic as it wasn’t to far from the local tourist attractions. We can’t recommend enough

Such a charming little staycation. The cabin is uber cozy with fur hides for seat covers, extra pom pom blankets for winter weather, fairy lights a-plenty and of course the superstar feature of the bbq fire!
We had the best time. From our trip to fill up on all the meats from countrystyle farm shop in Lancaster, to watching the rugby at farm yard ales and of course feeding the Alpacas. It was perfect and we will absolutely be making it a tradition to come every year. ❤️

Such an amazing little hut overlooking the countryside. Plenty of amenities and a great experience feeding the farm animals next door. We would definitely recommend to anyone! 🙂
1st July 2021
A beautiful getaway! The hut is gorgeous and we had the best time. Jess and Lee were really attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. They went above and beyond. Really recommend the pizza making and feeding Fudge (the alpaca) was certainly a highlight! Would love to come back one day!

It is hard to find fault with our stay at the grill hut. Everything from the private alpaca farm to the cosy cottage with the indoor barbecue just blew us away. Put all that together with amazing hosts who would go the extra mile to make their guests happy (especially Hattie, who welcomed us and showed us around) makes this place the best we’ve ever stayed at. We will definitely book again and cannot recommend enough!

What a lovely little place this is! We arrived when it was dark and when we got there all the lights were on, it was really cute. Looked like a fairy house.
The space itself is lovely. The view from the hut is beautiful. The bed is super comfy and the fire is such an added benefit. Really enjoyed making s’mores on the fire.
The location is brilliant. Close to all the places we wanted to be. Lots of walks around.
Feeding the alpacas was also an added benefit.
Would definitely recommend as we really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for such a lovely stay x

Lovely stay out in the country. Hut/shower kitchen area very clean.. I am a light sleeper so could hear traffic initially but once I put earplugs in it was fine and it wasn’t a busy road. Would suggest you need a car if you want to get about as there are no paths on the side of the road so not safe to walk. Just a note that you need to bring towels for showering as the literature said towels provided but it’s tea and hand towels only. Jessica was very kind though and loaned us a couple. Lovely brewery a short drive away and of course the alpacas, sheep and chickens were entertaining. It just felt very relaxing and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
13th July 2021
Both Jess and the grill hut have been amazing! Cannot fault anything, it’s been perfect and we’ve had the most amazing time! We can’t wait to come back soon!
15th July 2021
What a magical stay in the coziest, cutest accommodation! We loved every second, pictures do not reflect how truly tranquil this place is. Fabulous pubs and eateries all around (We loved the Patten Arms!) We looked forward to feeding the alpacas Evey day, and made use of the little "Shop", bringing home some alpaca wool for 50p! Very welcomed relaxing break. Would recommend to anyone.

This was a fabulous unique experience for us. The Grill hut is so cosy and spotless, ( we had awful weather) and the fairy lights are beautiful and romantic. The firepit is so novel, and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the evening, cooking and playing board games. A time to chill together. The animals are great to feed . And Jess & Lee are so helpful and friendly.
Great area to visit the local brewery and tap room. We would also recommend the Smokehouse shop at Glasson Dock to buy good quality meats, and fish to cook on the firepit. A summer stay is our next plan. Thankyou for a wonderful time.

We are on the doorstep to The Lake District National Park and ideally situated for exploring the Wyre & Fylde Coast and Yorkshire Dales. The Lancashire coastal way passes through Cockerham, providing unbeatable walks and cycle routes.
Moreover, on our smallholding we have alpacas, sheep and chickens and guests are welcome to help feed them. Try our NEW Alpaca Pod and get up close to our animals on your unique getaway!
Our beautiful belle tent offers the perfect glamping experience. Its very cosy and has a double bed and two singles. There is also a sheltered outdoor kitchen area with wood-burning stove.
The gorgeous BBQ grill hut also has a double bed, in and outdoor seating area, and grill entertainment area set in its own wooded area.
