A truly private glamping experience that still has the amenities of town within easy walking distance.

It’s easy to see how Helen Holmes found her path in the world of art and graphic design. You only have to look at this charming, small-scale glamping site to see an artist’s touch. When the place was bought back in 2014 it was little more than a scruffy, weed-strewn field. Today it has been transformed into a truly idyllic riverside meadow, pimpled, as if with a painters brush, by bright yellow buttercups in early summer and backed by a vintage style shepherd’s hut that’s adorned with homely vintage wares and a summery, well matched colour scheme.

On the riverside edge of Kempsey, a typical Worcestershire village that still boasts four different pubs, Buttercup & Daisy Meadow is a small but private space, backed by the village church and overlooking the Severn. Along one edge, the Severn Way walking and cycle path runs, following the course of the river, while, to one side, a gravely parking area allows a spot to bring your car if you plan on driving down the road to the cathedral city of Worcester instead. 

The Shepherd’s Hut itself, however, is a real thing of beauty. Inside it fulfils Helen’s claim to provide “everything you would expect in a self catering cottage”, with an en-suite shower room and toilet and an excellent kitchenette. While smaller touches also show the extra attention to detail – toiletries and basic kitchen provisions are already there and waiting. The floral patterns that run throughout were all special chosen by Helen, with some of her own designs found inside the hut.

Once you’ve pedalled to Worcester there are plenty of other nearby options by bike, including National Trust-owned Croome Court, and the short trip into the Malvern Hills pays dividends if you’re looking for off-road routes. The designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is awash with great cycling and walking routes and, if you plan it properly, you’ll usually start and end at a good village pub!

Don't want to go home

We've had a fabulous few days. It's so beautiful and peaceful here. The views are fantastic and the only noise you really hear are the sheep (and the odd Chinook). The Shepherds Hut is so comfortable and the meadow has so much space for Sid and Ted (our dogs) to run around but all fenced in so no escaping. So we have tried 2 of the local pubs and the Talbot wins. Only 10 mins walk and the food and service is good and the dogs are welcome. We tried the "Wally" but that had a definite air of the Slaughtered Lamb about it. Will be comings again, and again, and again. You get my drift.
