Ockeridge Rural Retreats

UK England West Midlands Worcestershire

  • Good walks nearby
A boutique luxury in the Worcestershire countryside, within easy reach of the county capital

Set on the edge of a series of fenced horse paddocks, with views down a shallow valley, Ockeridge Rural Retreats is comprised of three glamping units in a parcelled up nine-acre space. The first is the Whitely Shepherd’s Hut, named after the ruined Victorian mansion of Witely Court, a vast, beautiful relic, destroyed in a great fire during the 1930s and visible in the distance as you peak from the hut window. Inside, the idea of a humble shepherd’s shelter has been given a thoroughly modern face-lift, with under-floor heating, a tiled en suite bathroom and a king-sized bed and bunks. A compact kitchen, meanwhile, has an oven, fridge and sink and all the utensils you will need, while country house décor – enamel mugs, a milk churn side table and oak surfaces – shows impeccable attention to detail.

The second abode slightly stretches the realms of glamping; it’s certainly a far cry from the tent-camping origins. In a separate part of the meadow, the Montana Woodland Lodge is a cosy log cabin that sleeps a family of four in comfort with a king-sized master suite and a separate bunkroom. Think of it as a refined self-catered home, with a fully fitted kitchen, spacious dining area and televisions in each of the bedrooms. Huge double-glazed doors at the front can be folded back to really let the outside in, with a wooden deck and garden furniture, fronted by a fragrant line of flowering lavender.
