Monkwood Shepherd’s Hut: A Luxury Romantic Retreat set in the Heart of the Worcestershire Countryside
Monkwood is our lovingly crafted shepherd’s hut for couples and is the latest addition to Ockeridge’s collection of rural glamping accommodations. Named after the nearby Monkwood, a semi-natural ancient woodland renowned for its vibrant flora and butterfly species, this 23ft long x 9ft wide - 7meters long x 2.7meters wide luxury wooden hut provides the ideal setting for a truly relaxing staycation.
Whisk your loved one away to Monkwood Shepherd’s Hut for a unique and memorable glamping experience. Tucked away amongst our spacious 9-acres, Monkwood boasts magnificent views of the surrounding open countryside. You may observe the horses grazing in the nearby paddocks from the comfort of your kitchen window. Here at Ockeridge, we are firm believers in the power of the “now”; therefore, you will find no wi-fi in our shepherd’s huts. Whether you are celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or other special occasion, or if you just wish to spend some quality time together; escape from all the pressures of daily life and reconnect with your other half at our romantic couples’ hideaway.
Cosy up in our comfortable, eco-friendly cabin; clad in natural Douglas Fir and sturdy Oak, with added lamb’s wool insulation. The exposed Oak roof beams give this accommodation a rustic and classic feel, with the modern furnishings adding character and style. Warm your toes in front of the traditional log burner, before cooking a romantic meal for two in our fully integrated kitchen with quartz countertop and Belfast sink. You can choose to sit at the snug dining table with quirky bench seating, or settle down on the sofa for a more casual affair.
Slide open the wooden doors to reveal your own private bathroom – complete with WC, wash basin with illuminated mirror and a stunning handmade luxury bathtub. Hop into the show-stopping William Holland roll top copper bath for a relaxing soak together at the end of a long day, before snuggling down in your comfy king-sized bed; nestled in a snug, intimate corner of the hut. The bedroom contains ample storage space and an integrated TV with folding wall bracket, allowing you to catch up on all your favourite shows from the comfort of your own bed.
P.S. Don’t leave without gazing upon the stars in this stunning dark sky area. If you see a shooting star, be sure to make a wish!
