The STAG

The STAG named itself when it was pulled out of the lambing shed into our field overlooked by Blencathra. Standing very proud in a quiet corner of St Johns In The Vale it’s our most private place to be. It’s a cosy space, entirely unique and complemented with a bespoke tub under an aged oak tree in the heart of the Lake District, surrounded by peaks, trails, and local ales. This was the first bespoke cabin to be built at Birkett Mire by eldest son Luke.

Douglas fir trees are harvested at the top of the Vale before being sawn into our cladding at Bram Crag Sawmill. The Bathroom sink’s pedestal came out of a larch tree that was felled in a winter storm. The STAG also features a quirky king-sized bed that is more than out of the ordinary.
