Snow Hut One
Dent Station Snow Hut - This remote structure encapsulates over 125 years of history. Built in 1885 as a line side shelter for the railway workers, it was a point of activity for navvies repairing the permanent way and digging trains out of the snow. The winters of 1947 and 1963 witnessed horrendous snow blockages on the line. These blizzard conditions are recorded on “Rails across the fells” and are often seen in photos where snow drifts were up to the roofline of the waiting shelter at Dent.
Snow Hut One, the larger of the two available is situated furthest from the station has been restored as comfortable open plan self catering holiday accommodation.
Stays in Snow Hut One are Friday to Friday
Snow Hut Three
In response to demand for shorter stays and following the popularity of Snow Hut One, Snow Hut Three offers 3 or 4 night stay options.
Snow Hut Three is the smaller of the two snow huts, and is suitable for single occupancy or a couple sharing.
The bedroom is upstairs at a mezzanine level (tight in the roof space) accessed via steep stairs therefore unsuitable for children and / or adults who have difficulty with stairs. (See photos).
Stays in Snow Hut Three are available Thursday to Sunday or Sunday to Thursday
