The Owner Says

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 visit one of the many pubs and restaurants nearby. Order some pastries, quiches, tarts or homemade bread with the site when you arrive so they can be prepared in time for you.

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.

We'll also provide you with a complimentary pack of Mason & Miller toiletries and a welcome basket of local goodies too.

Within walking distance of the hut, Newbridge Farm Park offers a great family day out for all and a couple of miles further away, Alexander Park offers Golf, Spa treatments and a fabulous gym. If you feel like you can expend a little more energy, there are walks and great cycle routes straight from the shepherds hut. If you need something a little more extreme, the Forest of Dean offers some of the best mountain bike trails in the land. With archery, canoeing, climbing, caving, horse riding, shooting and fishing close at hand you might need to book a longer stay!

About Upper House Glamping

Suitable For

The hut is suitable for 2 adults only. Sorry, no dogs as there are sheep outside.

Nearby

There are some nice walks and cycle routes straight from the hut, but if you fancy something a little more energetic, the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley offers some of the best walks and mountain bike trails in the UK. Canoeing, archery, climbing, horse riding, caving, and fishing are also on offer. To the east, the Malvern Hills, divides Worcestershire and Herefordshire, and is a great destination for walkers of all ages and abilities, whether you are interested in a gentle stroll along tree-lined paths or a trek along the Malvern Hills ridge. The local area boasts a wealth of historic sights, including three magnificent castles (Berkeley, Eastnor, and Goodrich), whilst there's plenty of quaint villages and towns to while away a few hours. Finally, family-run Alexander Park Resort offers relaxing spa treatments, golf course and a gym, all nestled within mature meadows.

Food & Drink

Inside the hut there’s a fridge, 2-ring gas hob, kettle, various pans, cutlery, plates, bowls and mugs – so everything you need to cook a decent meal. You will also find a sink with hot and cold water for washing up. Alternatively, bike or walk to the lovely market town of Ledbury, which is renowned for its cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

Couldn't have been better

Wonderful stay at Upper House. The Shepherds Hut feels spacious and has everything you might need as well as the comfiest bed we have ever slept in. Ledbury is very pretty and handy for shopping/ cafes/ takeaways. Jim was friendly and helpful and made the great recommendation of canoeing down the river Wye. Plenty to do and see in the area, will be back.

super cosy and fun

The wagon itself is super cosy and fun and it’s a short drive from some nice spots: Ledbury is a pretty Tudor town and the Malvern hills are good for walking. Jim’s very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is a nice touch! There is a slight traffic sound from the nearby A-road but the views are pretty and overall it’s a nice spot for a weekend break.😀

Perfect cosy getaway for two

Having to use holiday up at the end of April but knowing the weather may be bad as well as a pandemic still ongoing, we felt this place was perfect to escape for a few days. With no insulation, the mornings were chilly but the blankets on the bed were more than enough and the wood burning stove kept us warm every evening. Jim made us feel very welcome and had us all set up with breakfast for the few days we were there. The views were spectacular and the setting was exactly the calm environment we needed. Don’t bring a lot of stuff as the hut is small. Town is a fairly close drive and we had excellent takeaway pizza (enjoyed at the hut) from Slip Tavern. Malvern Hills is a quick and easy journey to get gorgeous views of the countryside. I would highly recommend this place for a couples getaway.

Fabulous stay!

Absolutely loved our stay in the Shepherds hut. It was such a relaxing peaceful getaway. The hut has everything you need. Very comfortable bed and cosy duvet. The views are wonderful. Jim very accommodating and his homemade bread and marmalade delicious. As were the bacon and fresh eggs. Very pleasant walk into Ledbury which is a very picturesque town. We will definitely return. Thank you Jim.
