Are you looking for a cosy retreat for 2? You may have found what you are looking for …. tucked away at the end of a no-through road in the rural heart of the three counties you will find our shepherd's hut placed at the centre of farm life within a newly planted English Woodland. During the day you will hear the bustle of farm life; animals being fed, lambing, calving, tractors scraping up or harvesting. At night you will be enveloped by a huge sky and hear the hooting of Barn and Little Owls and the odd moo or baa as the animals settle down for the night. While at the centre of farm life you will experience a great sense of remoteness and peace at being far away from the world.

Our hideaway arrived at Nash End Farm on 3rd October 2013 having been newly crafted in Worcestershire by Riverside Shepherd's Huts. A fusion of Victorian charm and contemporary luxury, your hut contains everything you need for a relaxing break away: a full size double bed, central heating, hot and cold running water, shower, flushing WC, a fully equipped fitted kitchen ready for you to do some serious cooking, plenty of storage for all of your things, all within the hut. There's no need to venture outside until you're ready to take on the day.

Please enquire about bringing children. You are welcome to bring one child to sleep in the hut. You will need to discuss sleeping arrangements. During the summer we will give families the option of pitching tents to use as bedrooms outside the hut. This will make a remarkable setting for a family holiday. You would use the hut for cooking and washing and shelter on wet days while having the space outside the hut to spread out your camp.

Walking

Situated at the centre of our 315 acre farm you will have unlimited access to the surrounding countryside (please follow the country code). You will find a map in the hut which will show existing footpaths and suggested walking routes from the hut, ideal spots to pause for a picnic or to take in the spectacular views across all of the three counties which have inspired so many of our countries musicians, artists, writers.

If walking is your thing you are only a 10 minute drive to the Malvern Hills and if previously arranged Rosalind or Chris will ferry you to the start line and collect you from the finish line to enable you to walk this spectacular landscape.

Location

We are 4 miles from a single carriage road which allows this sense of seclusion however, will find yourself to be 20 minutes to Tewkesbury with it's medieval streets and Abbey, 30 minutes to Cheltenham with it's famous racecourse, also fantastic for shopping amid the Regency facades. Smaller towns abound with Ledbury and Malvern all within a 20 minute drive with their tea and craft shops. For those with a particular interest in the county towns of the 3 counties with their stunning Norman cathedrals and medical streets, you will find yourselves within easy reach of each being 20 minutes from Gloucester, 40 minutes Worcester 35 minutes Hereford.

Eating Out

Only a mile from the hut on foot you will find 2 great places to eat. The Butchers Arms Eldersfield, is renowned locally as a great place to stop off for a pint with its low ceilings and small seasonal menu for which they have been awarded a Michelin star. Corse Lawn House Hotel, a wonderfully characterful old country house with a smart restaurant for formal dining or a bistro for a more cosy informal experience. Both are seriously good dining experiences. You can walk to both of these on a dry day, or cycle.

If you are looking for a simple local pub, there are a lot of options but you will need to get in the car.

Eating In

We are passionate about using local produce and want to make it easy for you to cook local produce in the hut. You can get a list of where to buy local produce from Rosalind, or ask her to source it for you (this will incur an additional cost). However if you want to keep things simple and order from your usual online supermarket, all have previously delivered here.

Crumble making kit: crumble dish loan, crumble recipe, free fruit around the farm when available or fruit from a local shop, 6 oz white flour, 3 oz butter, 3 oz soft brown sugar £5
