Upper House Glamping

UK England West Midlands Herefordshire

An exclusive shepherd's hut, kitted out for couples with cooking and ensuite facilities, luxurious sauna – plus easy access to the Forest of Dean

Peace, privacy and a slice of countryside living are common descriptions when marketing a new glampsite. But at certain locations, these are far more than just advertising buzzwords. Upper House Glamping is one such a place, where tranquility and relaxation is guaranteed by one simple fact: there's only one single shepherd's hut, ensuring guests have a private holiday experience amongst Herefordshire's rolling agricultural landscapes.

Traditionally styled in forest green, the exclusive hut - hiding in a field behind a characterful oak-frame cottage - seems to blend into the rural backdrop, but within, the luxurious interior offers something more than its rustic facade suggests. Homely uplit wooden walls suit the scene perfectly and house excellent facilities like a Divan double bed, kitchenette, cosy woodburner, and ensuite with hot and cold running water, shower, flushing loo and thoughtfully supplied with bottles of toiletries. Step outside, meanwhile, and the jewel in the luxury lovers crown awaits: a luxurious Zoki sauna, only yards from the hut – perfect for relaxing after days spent exploring.

Though the mod-cons and exclusive feel of being the sole occupants of the meadow (minus the sheep) is undoubtedly what makes Upper House Glamping special, the location is also difficult to knock. Sandwiched between the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills, the site is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The former is the oldest oak forest in England and a scenic spot for mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking. Whilst, the Malverns is first-rate walking country, with a network of hiking trails, most of which can be completed in a half-day. Great Malvern is the obvious choice for first-time visitors, and on a clear day, walkers who reach the summit are rewarded with views of 15 counties. Closer to home, there are walks from the hut door, with the Herefordshire trail only a field away, and Ledbury - with its antique shops and delightful medieval Market House - just 1.5 miles down a lovely lane.

Naturally, there are some holidaymakers for whom Upper House Glamping simply won’t suit. Groups, dog owners, and children are all out of luck. But for couples especially, the site offers a wonderfully romantic getaway, with private countryside views, plenty of kit and caboodle to keep you warm and comfortable, and best yet, some good old-fashioned peace and quiet. In fact, at night, the only sound you're likely to hear is an owl in the nearby woods.

The Owner Says

Have you ever fancied a luxury Glamping break in a shepherds hut. Our brand new hut ticks all the boxes. It's fully connected to mains electrics and water and even has a flushing loo, yet it's in a field location so you feel off grid but you're not!

Bring your bikes (bike store available) and after a days biking or hiking enjoy a relaxing sauna in your own Zoki sauna adjacent to the hut. After the sauna, pick up your favourite book and indulge in a chapter or two before supper.

Crack open a chilled beer from the fridge within the hut and fire up the barbecue whilst enjoying the 270 degree panorama and watch the sun go down before snuggling up in the luxury cosy double bed for the night.

If the weather is cooler, light the wood burner within the hut and Cook something wonderful on the gas hob, or repair to one of the many pubs and restaurants nearby.

In the morning, wake up to the sun beaming through your bedroom window and the bucolic serenity of the sheep in the field outside. Go and collect some free range eggs for your breakfast from the hens outside the hut.

The hut is available for short breaks (Min 2 nights) for 2 people (no pets). We can offer this as standalone rental or as an add on to our holiday cottage (6+2). So why not invite a couple of friends to join you on holiday during your stay at the cottage?

Just wonderful

The hut is a fabulous little getaway. Beautiful views, lovely welcome basket of goodies, amazing peace and quiet for much-needed R&R. The only downside is that Ledbury is much further away than the 1.5 miles suggested and not really easily walkable (it takes 45 minutes). That aside, we will come again!

Perfect retreat

Beautifully and thoughtfully done out, gorgeous scenery and loads of really great welcoming touches. Communication was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It really does have everything you need! Can’t wait to go again when it’s sunny and make the most of the BBQ area. Thanks so much Jim x
