Get close to nature in both Wales and England when you stay at this charming shepherd’s hut at Bitterley, 3 miles from Ludlow. Head over the border 20 miles away to explore the Welsh Marches or strike out across the glorious Shropshire countryside from this bijou holiday home for two guests and one of their four-legged friends. Ideal for a couple keen to escape their busy lives and to enjoy serenity for a while, the shepherds’ hut takes in far-reaching, rolling views and enjoys easy access to the many attractions of the historic market town of Ludlow.

Make your way up the wooden steps to discover the ample delights of this appealing abode. Find yourselves in an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom, where you can unwind, prepare meals and sleep in comfort. Stoke up the wood burner in here to bring a cosy glow to the space; read your books; prepare romantic meals then dine together at the breakfast bar or out in the sunshine. You have the convenience of an indoor shower and WC with this welcoming retreat. Sizzle fresh produce on the BBQ on balmy evenings and watch the sun go down over the hills as the stars appear above you in the clear night skies. There is plenty of parking at the shepherd’s hut.

Hop on your bicycles and arrive in bustling Ludlow within 25 minutes. While you are there, shop for local food, dine out in restaurants and spend time wandering the medieval ruins of Ludlow Castle. Venture 3 miles from your base to Titterstone Clee Hill, to attempt a 4.5-mile walk capturing panoramic vistas across the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We had a fabulous stay in this shepherds hut, it was very cosy but had everything we needed and more. A lovely welcome pack awaited us, and the owners were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them.

A beautiful and well maintained Shepherds Hut in the perfect location. The sheep were an added benefit and gave the hut an authentic feel. Plenty of parking and within just a few miles of Ludlow itself.

Lovely peaceful Shepherds hut. Perfect for a space to unwind. Ideal for a base to visit Ludlow. National Trust properties are plentiful in the surrounding area.

Very relaxing time had at this shepherd's hut. Just what I needed. Really cook to have an oven and a TV which you don't always get in shepherd's huts. Although the garden is enclosed with a fence, if you have a Houdini dog like mine, take a long lead. My dog would have been straight through the fence and chasing all the sheep!!
