  • "We have stayed in a few Shepherds hugs and most have been very nice, but the Shepherds retreat TOPS THE LOT!"

    It is a lovely place to stay and relax, so well thought out, Farmer Des came over to give us our keys and show us around and he was the loveliest man. The hut is super comfy, from the lovely. Armchairs ( seating is normally a bit of an issue in huts) to the restored bed from 1857!, everything has been thought about,great use of space,,everything you need is there. The hut has a large decking to the front, with ramp and step access, a really nice fully enclosed garden, so you don't have to worry about your dog wandering off, as well as at least 3 large fields you have access to straight from the gate by the decking. There are 2 small sheds one with kit for the chiminea and some extra chairs and loungers in and the other with hanging space for clothes, coats ,boots and bikes if you want ( there is also an ironing board and iron in there) and finally THE VIEWS !! ......did I mention the views! you can sit on the deck and look out over 4 counties, plenty of wildlife about as well. Not often I say this but 10 out of 10, a lovely place owned by lovely people, will definitely come back for another stay.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review Shepherds Retreat, we are so pleased that you enjoyed you're stay, and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    Extremely friendly and helpful from the minute we booked our stay. The lodge was a beautiful property, surrounded by nature and outstanding views as far as the eye could see. We cannot fault the place or the love owners. The hut has been comfortably designed with old feature that are unique. Des had told us that he had built the hut as a hobby and it shows his passion and dedication the the project. We are already planning our next trip there. If you are looking for peace and quiet, and love wildlife then this is a great spot about an hr from walsall. Thank you for making our long weekend feel great x Sarah and Steve

  • "This delightful shepherd's hut is equipped with a very comfortable bed and armchairs, all necessary equipment and a shower/toilet/sink cubicle."

    It is situated to give spectacular views of the local countryside, offering a panoramic sweep across several counties. It offers easy access to nearby Ludlow, Clee Hill summit and a range of walks and small market towns and villages. The owners go out of their way to ensure that you are comfortable and have everything you need, spare the time to chat and offer guidance on places to go and things to see. A charming, bijou retreat which is cosy for all its smallness: I had a wonderful week and am sure I will return.

  • "Very clean & cosy."

    Well equipped everything you would need for a few days or a longer stay. Extra storage space in an outside shed is very useful. Wonderful views, loads to see and do in the area, especially Clee Hills to explore. Good sized enclosed garden for a dog and walks from the door.

    The place was in beautiful countryside with amazing views and a perfect base to explore the area from. The owners were friendly,welcoming and helpful. The hut was beautifully done, sparkling clean and catered for everything that you could need for a break away. Our dog loved the space and the dog treats left for her. A place we'd love to come back to when we're in the area again. We'd recommend booking a stay - you won't be disappointed. Thanks for having us.

The property

Cleobury Mortimer 3.8 miles.

Shepherds Retreat is a delightful shepherd's hut enjoying the countryside on its doorstep on the southern edge of the Shropshire Hills AONB, in Hopton Bank near Cleobury Mortimer.

Ideal for a couple who want to escape the hustle and bustle of life, the hut enjoys unbeatable, panoramic views covering 40 miles of countryside, towns, villages and on a clear day you can even spot Birmingham!

Be greeted by the wild orchid field on arrival, before parking up in the off-road space.

Venture inside via the steps of the hut's timber-clad studio-style accommodation.

Kick back and relax on one of the plush armchairs as you savour a glass of wine and watch TV; all the while the electric fire warms your toes!

When you're feeling peckish, make your way to the kitchen, a compact but stylish and practical space, thanks to its LED lighting and range of appliances available.

Once you've fixed up a delicious meal, open out the folding table and chairs and enjoy a meal for two by the fire, or take the meal out to the decking and tuck in amidst those gorgeous views.

When night falls, retreat to the double, a bespoke bed with a reconditioned 1930s bed frame, and enjoy a well-earned rest.

In the morning, freshen up in the shower room, a space enjoying a walk-in shower and the lovely touch of an illuminated mirror.

Cleobury Mortimer is situated a very short drive away and offers all your amenities in one handy location, including a range of eateries sitting on its main street, along with a supermarket stocked with all you need for a self-catered stay.
