The former PoW Camp 13 / 15 Shap Wells is a spectacular hotel built in almost a chateau style sitting within a secluded and spectacular valley in Cumbria.
In many ways I would say that this site is the Cumbria answer to The Hays in Derbyshire, indeed at some point both sites have been Camp 13. Unlike quite a few sites visited not only are the present owners aware of the sites past, but they celebrate it.
