“Great little place”
Reviewed November 7, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the shepherds hut. It was beautifully quiet - the morning chats with the friendly ducks were a highlight! The owners really went out of their way to make the stay a good one: not only did they provide copious, delicious and very good value breakfast with delicious duck eggs, they also kindly offered us a lift to the Weston's Cider factory when we found taxis hard to come by. They were on hand for advice about local walks and attractions, and their friendliness really made the stay more special than the average B & B. Not to mention the fantastic hut and the brilliant use of space: who would have thought a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and bed big enough for 6'3" man would fit in such a small space and still feel roomy!
Thanks for a lovely relaxing break :)

“Quiet, peaceful and relaxing holiday”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My husband and I stayed in the shepherd's retreat for the weekend and enjoyed it a lot. The hut is located in a quiet and iddilic location with views over the countryside. We loved the tranquility and it was a joy to watch the birds and their chicks, not to mention the duck 'Peter' swim in the pond. The hut itself was spotlessly clean. Everything that you might need for your stay was provided. On arrival we were greeted by our friendly hosts. We were also given lovely local apple juice and home made cookies which were really delicious. We loved it and recommend it to others.

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The shepherds hut is beautiful and clean with everything you could want in there, it was lovely to wake up to the sound of the running brook by the window and seeing the ducks enjoying the sun and the pond! It was so nice to get away from everything and relax in the peace and quiet! The hosts where so friendly and left amazing homemade cakes each morning and fresh duck eggs. We loved it so much that we are planning our next trip up! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from their busy lives and take a moment to take in nature and relax!

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I couldn't have wished for a more lovely holiday experience. The wonderful Shepherd's retreat is perfect for a quiet getaway in the rolling hills of the English countryside.
Some lovely walks on the doorstep: Ledbury is within walking distance across via a public footpath over fields and woods, the deerpark of Eastnor Castle is also a lovely walk. The Malvern Hills are a hop, skip and a jump away: Fantastic. Breathtaking.
The owner's are super lovely people and were on hand to offer advice, have a natter and keep us in supply of tasty duck eggs :-)
My only regret is that I had to leave to go back to work! But i'l be going back to Shepherd's Retreat for sure :-)
