Located on a quite country lane – yet only 6 miles from Worcester city centre – the spacious hut is blessed with unspoiled skies and is the perfect place for some rest and relaxation. Inside, the shepherd's hut has been carefully designed with a comfortable king sized bed with two additional single bunk beds above (all with Egyptian cotton sheets), and there’s a clever, high-quality bathroom built into one corner. The underfloor heating and handmade double glazed windows keeps the hut cosy and warm and there's a kettle and toaster for early morning tea and toast. The hand made kitchen is gorgeous and has everything you need, including a baby belling oven, fridge, and Belfast ceramic sink. If cooking isn’t your thing then choose from a vast selection of local country pubs, some within walking distance.
Ockeridge Rural Retreats, is a glamping site in rural Worcestershire which plays host to three luxurious units, found in a lovely nine-acre spot. Any sense that this is “roughing it” is dispelled as soon as you see the, fabulous accommodation (two shepherds huts and one cabin) on offer – all with stylish interiors and thoughtful touches. What that day brings is up to you; around and about, there are lakes and local fisheries to tackle, good pubs, vast Witely Court – a ruined Victorian mansion and once of the great country houses of England and Worcester, well known for its magnificent cathedral. When the sun is shining, though, nothing beats exploring the Malvern Hills. The designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just under 10 miles away and is renowned for mountain biking and excellent hiking trails.

Nearby

Witely Court is two miles away, where English Heritage welcomes you. It’s a pleasant stroll to the local pub – The Fox Inn – while walkers looking for hills and well known routes can drive the nine miles to the Malverns. Meanwhile, rainy days are easily filled dipping in and out of shops in Worcester and marvelling at the gothic cathedral. When the sun breaks, a pint beside the River Severn ends the day just perfectly.
