Shepherds Retreat is situated within the 2 ½ acres of grounds and woodland of the converted Ledbury Pumping Station, Massington Lodge, which has also been featured on BBCs 'Escape to the Country'.

Located just over a mile from Massington Lodge is the market town of Ledbury. Ledbury has a large number of picturesque timber framed buildings including the market house located in the centre of the town.

Also nearby is Eastnor Castle, a 19th Century mock medieval castle. Surrounded by a beautiful deer park, arboretum and lake the castle is a popular wedding and corporate entertainment venue.

The grounds of Eastnor Castle are used by Land Rover and allow visitors to try out vehicles on their specially designed off road circuit. We are within walking distance of Eastnor Deer Park which leads onto the Malvern Hills, with scenic views over Herefordshire and Worcestershire.The Three Counties Showground is only a short drive away where events take place throughout the year.

Many beautiful villages and walks close by to enjoy.

Couldn't ask for nicer owners, with home made cakes on arrival. The shepherds hut is the best we have ever stayed in and immaculate. The luxury of shower room & toilet inside the shepherds hut was great. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in out of any accommodation we have stayed in. Not forgetting the perfect location in the countryside next to a duck pond. Lovely walks from the shepherds hut and only a short drive from the picturesque town of Ledbury. Can't wait to return.

Thank you so much. Pleased you had such a good weekend. Hope we can welcome you back in the future to do all the things you didn't have time for!

"We loved it!"

Had a lovely time! the bed was comfortable, it was very clean and the setting was just lovely. The couple who run it were helpful and friendly and Peter the duck visited every morning! We use the fire pit and had a lovely evening sitting out under the trees. We are defiantly coming back again next year! It's was totally as good as we hoped!
