Full description
An irresistibly peaceful haven, surrounded by friendly horses and far-reaching views of soothing Worcestershire countryside.

You may not guess that Ockeridge Rural Retreats is located just six miles from Worcester's bustling city centre. Set within a nine-acre equestrian facility, and surrounded by fresh, rolling countryside, you'll feel blissfully secluded from civilisation.

Recommended by The Guardian as one of the UK's top glamping sites, here you'll discover a sumptuous selection of shepherd's huts and a luxury log cabin that are primed for relaxation, with bathing and kitchen facilities all provided. Ideal for families and couples, and LGBT-friendly, everyone is welcome (regrettably aside from pets, since nobody wants to frighten the horses!)

The three lovingly crafted shepherd's huts each boast their own unique style and personality. The Shepherds Retreat is a lodge-like hut that's ideal for a family break, equipped with a downy kingsize bed and two single bunks. Drenched in luxury, there's even a gorgeous enamel roll-top bath outside, ideal for a stargazing soak at the end of a long day exploring the local area.

The aptly named Hillside View is a quirky gem of a couple's retreat, featuring a fold-away double bed (with a goose down duvet and Egyptian cotton sheets, naturally!) and an indulgent full-sized bathroom. Meanwhile, the expansive decking area allows you to make the most of those spectacular views.

In need of a touch more opulence? Ashwood Luxury Shepherds Hut is the ultimate retreat-for-two, with its oak-clad exterior and natural hessian-covered walls. Warm your toes in front of the log burner...or why not take a dip in the gleaming handmade copper bath, instead?

Last but by no means least, The Montana Cabin represents pared-down family luxury with a home-from-home feel. There's a squishy L-shaped sofa, plenty of space for dining and socialising, and a kids' bunk room complete with flat-screen TV. Oh, and did we mention the outdoor Whirlpool tub?

Once you've chosen your favourite retreat, why not come and look in on the beautiful horses as they trot around the riding area? The nearby paddocks (which you may be able to view from your retreat) are home to plenty of charming characters, including Paddy the Irish Draft, Fairy the cheeky Shetland pony, and not forgetting SuperTed, a handsome Irish Cob.

Fancy getting out and about? A visit to Worcester is a worthy way to spend your time, with its intricate architecture - including the magnificent cathedral - and rows of independent shops.  Drenched in history, there are plenty of interesting stories to tell, so why not join one of the guided walking tours of the city?

You could walk the Malvern Hills if you get a craving for even more of that invigorating fresh air, or how about a stately visit to the dramatic ruins of Witley Court, formerly one of England's great country houses?

However you decide to spend your time, your hearts are sure to yearn for your sumptuous home-from-home at Ockeridge Rural Retreats. Prepare a well-deserved sundowner, then watch the first stars appear in the night sky as you chat the day away in perfect comfort.
