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.

"Picturesque, Relaxing Get Away"
A unique getaway from it all experience. Although small the Shepherds Hut is beautifully made and decorated and has everything you need for your stay. The shower and toilet are a real bonus being part of the hut rather than located outside. The fire pit is great for warmth whilst sitting outside enjoying the evening. The location couldn't be better by the pond with friendly ducks and plenty of other wildlife. Ledbury is an historic market town with restaurants, pubs and great shops if you want something a little different along with the usual butchers, bakers and supermarkets and a maximum 10 minute drive away. Great area to explore only wish we had been able to stay longer so will definitely be back. Suzanne and Danny couldn't have been better hosts.

"Lovely getaway from city life!"
Thoroughly enjoyed our time at shepherds retreat. Had the firepit going, ensured wingy (the duck) was well fed, and played plenty of monopoly! The location is great, although a car is definitely necessary for travel into Ledbury and to nearby pubs. Hosts very helpful, able to supply leaflets about local cycle hire and routes, as well as information about the best places to eat, and walk. No problems at all, i hope to return one day! Sorry for the delayed review! Exams got a bit on top of us again!

"Idyllic rural hideaway"
This gorgeous shepherd's hut is small but perfectly formed and there was ample space for our three-night stay, including all we needed to self-cater. Really cosy and warm at night and fantastic to wake up to the sound of the brook babbling outside the bedroom window. Lovely walks to Eastnor Castle and Ledbury town without needing to get in the car each day were a real bonus. Huge thanks to Suzanne and Danny who were excellent hosts. Definitely somewhere we'll be recommending to friends and family looking for a rural getaway.

"Ducks, a woodpecker and an owl."
A lovely couple of nights in a cosy place with a great breakfast basket and hosts who couldn't have done more to make our stay better and with ducks, a woodpecker and an owl for company.

Just returned from a two night stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by such caring and attentive hosts. Really couldn't have asked for a nicer location to be staying in. Will recommend to anyone and will be booking again for the new year. Thank you!

"FABULOUS SHEPHERDS HUT IN IDYLLIC SETTING"
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! Thank you for a lovely stay and see you next year! Would defiantly recommend it!
Thank you and pleased you had such a good time.It was lovely meeting you and Peter the resident duck is still greeting all the guests,hoping to be fed!
