The detail

Located in the countryside just outside the market town of Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire, this unique shepherd’s hut provides eco-friendly accommodation for two. The Commander’s Caravan has been carefully converted from an Army Brockhurst trailer and now features everything you could need for a romantic escape to the countryside. Wake up in the morning to the sound of birdsong and enjoy your morning coffee out on the terrace. Spend the day exploring one of the local gardens or National Trust sites before coming back to the hut for a sundowner and a long soak in the hot tub.

The hut sits in a three-acre field under some pretty Cherry Plum trees. The original Brockhurst trailer’s roots date back to the Cold War and the owners lovingly converted it themselves into a shepherd’s hut. They used wood from their farm for the floors and units and many of the furnishings were found in antiques yards or auctions, giving some lovely pieces another life. The lights, fridge and charging points run on solar power and heating and cooking is done with the wood-fired Rayburn, continuing this eco-friendly ethos.

The interior is warm and welcoming with the surprisingly spacious living and kitchen area greeting you as you step inside. The space has been decorated in light colours and the big windows let in plenty of sunshine, opening up the interior further. The bedroom is curtained off at one end of the hut and features a luxurious king-size bed complete with cosy bedding. There’s also a bathroom with a shower and a toilet.

Outside, to the front of the shepherd’s hut, you’ll find a terrace with seating and the wood-fired hot tub. You’ll also find some deck chairs around a firepit with a grill, perfect for barbecues or for toasting a few marshmallows as you do a bit of stargazing in the evenings.

The location is secluded and peaceful but there’s plenty to do in the local area, so you have the choice of relaxing in your hideaway or stepping up the pace with a bit of exploring. There are some beautiful countryside walks, some of which you can start right from your front door. Tenbury Wells is also just a couple of miles away and has plenty of independent shops and restaurants, including Unwined Bar and Restaurant which serves up delicious tapas or the Kingshead for Thai food. The town of Ludlow also makes a great day out with its castle and bustling market. The Malvern Hills and the Shropshire Hills AONB also offer some scenic walking opportunities.
