The detail

Be at one with nature in the Worcestershire countryside at Abberton Shepherd's Hut Retreat. Located on a working farm in the village of Abberton, the hut is handcrafted from a single ash tree that was blown down on the farm several years ago.

Nestled in an old orchard on the 260 acres of land, this getaway offers spectacular views over Bredon Hill and across to the Malvern Hills in a conservation area in the heart of the Vale of Evesham. The hut itself is in its own corner of the farm to ensure privacy for guests, accompanied by an adjacent parking space.

This retreat perfectly mixes rustic charm with modern luxury. Inside is a fully fitted kitchen with fridge and ice box, en suite shower and toilet, and a fully sized double bed with memory foam mattress and Devon wool duvet. There are also two small bunks for children. A traditional log burner and TV are perfect for those cosy nights in, while a wool privacy curtain hung from shepherd's crooks means late risers can sleep in, surrounded by the peace and quiet of the country. Outside a south-facing balcony has views over the rolling hills, which is ideal for watching the sunset over the orchard. It's also a great spot for a barbecue or for enjoying an evening drink by the fire pit.

Essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, and condiments are supplied, but fresh eggs, pork, lamb, sausages, and beef from the farm are also available upon request. For other essentials Hillers Farm Shop and The Forge Shop are just 10 minutes away in nearby Inkberrow. The village is also home to The Old Bull pub, famed for being featured in The Archers on Radio 4.

The shepherd's hut is situated in an enviable rural location and yet has easy access to both the M5 and M40. Just a short trip east and guests will find themselves in Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of Shakespeare and its beautiful river and theatres. Visit the market towns of Alcester and Pershore, or head out into natural beauty of the Cotswolds and even over Herefordshire into the Welsh mountains.

Paige

This hut is utterly charming, set in an idyllic location. The attention to detail is outstanding, you can tell this ickle hut has been Catriona's baby - lots of little luxuries and complimentary bits, makes this hut that little bit more special! We had the warmest of welcomes by Catriona who personally met with us and told us everything we could have possibly needed to know. It was the perfect setting to just completely switch off and press the reset button for the year ahead. It blew a gale and rained whilst we were there, but we never felt cold once with the log burner and electric blankets - it honestly felt like a home from home, so much so we've already discussed going again! I'd recommend this place to anyone, go and find out for yourself you wont be disappointed. Thanks so much Catriona and Alec.
