Stayed in the hideaway for my boyfriends birthday and even though it was the middle of November and rained ALOT the first night we still had a fantastic time! I was a little worried with it being so cold outside what the guy would be like but was warm and cosy even before we had the log burner lit. Everything you could need is in this little hut including Apple juice, a loaf of bread, Milk and eggs which was a lovely unexpected surprise! Would definitely return and highly recommend.

Lovely short stay in the hideaway. The shepherds hut was exactly what we were looking for! Warm and cosy with a view of the horse paddock and distant Malvern hills. Fresh bread, milk, eggs and apple juice on arrival. Hot tub was perfect to sit and relax in on a chilly evening. We enjoyed a nice long walk to and up the Malvern Hills followed by a meal at the Local pub, the Bear and Ragged Staff, which was excellent and catered well for gluten-free needs.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely three night stay in the Hideaway. It was a little 'mini-moon' for us and was a perfect way to unwind and relax after our wedding. The hut was perfect and everything was at a very high standard. We were able to unwind in the lovely private hot tub overlooking the Malvern’s and light a cosy fire in the hut. it was the perfect little getaway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Shepherd's hut, it had everything we needed and more! The views from the hut across fields were beautiful, the hosts were welcoming and informative.
We enjoyed a relaxing weekend, walks across stunning countryside from the door and the hot tub to relax in was the icing on the cake. Perfect!
We will definitely be back.

I wanted somewhere a little quirky for a few days break with my partner and puppy, I'm so pleased we stumbled across the Hideaway! What a beautiful little find :-) Reasonably priced and the Hut itself is just perfect, considering its only a small space there was everything we could have needed, nicely decorated and well equipped, located in what felt like the middle of no where, the views are just stunning. We enjoyed toasting marshmallows on the firepit in the evenings and the hot tub is a bonus! The owners are lovely and although they live just a stones throw away from the hut they don't constantly pop in to check up on you!! They are there if need them but otherwise the space is very private - other than the lovely horses in the field in front and the squirrels that love to run across the fence! We enjoyed the walks to the different pubs, with the maps available in the hut. Defiantly recommend Bear and ragged staff, the food is delicious and the landlords a great guy - even gave us a lift back to the hut! We have already recommended Hop pickers to lots of friends and family and look forward to returning soon... Thank you xx

A really good setting - although located on a site with 3 other properties (including the owners' house), the hut feels sufficiently isolated and private. The hut itself is very nicely equipped (and the bed was so comfortable)and the little touches (fresh free range eggs, home made apple juice) make it just that much better. It was lovely to be able to relax in the private hot tub with such idyllic views. Overall, as close to perfect as you are going to get.

It was absolutely beautiful but not quite as clean as I would have expected. The cups from the cupboard had to be washed and the towels were stained. That being said the facilities were amazing and the hut felt very private with lovely views.

The little extras such as the prosecco, apple juice etc were lovely and unexpected.
We had a perfect, relaxing couple of days!




Louise Wild replied 118 days ago
I am pleased that you had a lovely weekend and can only apologise for the oversight of not checking the cups in the cupboard, I will add this to our check list to ensure that it is done on every turnaround. I have to admit that a small number of towels do have some rust marks on from the pegs when they are hung out, the towels are being reviewed shortly and I will ensure that we replace the marked ones. Many thanks for your time to review The Hideaway, Louise

The break was for my daughter and my son in law for a romantic 2 day break after their wedding. The location could not have been better and the hot tub and pool was a bonus.
Louise the owner was very accommodating and looked after them.
The accommodation was first class everything you needed had been thought off
Will be definitely booking again

We had a fabulous few days staying at the hideaway. The shepherds hut is surprisingly spacious and has everything you need including a very comfortable bed!! The hot tub was a perfect way to spend our evenings after putting our little one down for the night and had such lovely views over the fields and such amazing wildlife.

Can't recommend this lovely place enough, we'd love to come back!

My friend and I stayed at hop pickers hideaway and had a wonderful weekend... The setting of the shepards hut is beautiful with a view of horses in a paddock, a fabulous private hot tub, the hut is beautifully finished, and the surroundings are wonderful. We had loads of fun on the tennis court and a very comfortable stay. Louise is lovely - we will definitely be back!

We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate a special birthday and anniversary. The shepherds hut was easy to find as Louise had given us clear instructions. The hut is beautifully located and provides absolute peace and quiet. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable to stay in with all the equipment and utensils we needed. The additional extras provided eg things for breakfast, were much appreciated.The bed was oh so comfy too !! We loved all the facilities on the site , including our very own hot tub . Pool was lovely and warm so a real bonus. Thank you !

Another excellent relaxing break away at the place my partner and I got engaged. The shepherd's hut is a dream getaway, from it's cosy accommodation, to it's relaxing open fire and Jacuzzi, whilst overlooking a tranquil field with horses. Not far from the Malvern hills, which are a great walk. From booking to departing the whole process was easy and informative. Can't wait until next time!!!

Had a fantastic stay at the sheppards hut.
From first enquiry Louise was really helpful and this continued throughout! We went for a cottage pie for our arrival that was really tasty and enjoyed the hamper!

Would definitely recommend and come back again when I’m more mobile to enjoy the grounds and the pool more.
Thanks for a great stay.

I wanted to surprise my partner as it was his 40th, we arrived and he was very surprised! Inside was gorgeous, lots of love went into every last detail of the hut !
Log burner and the hot tub were to die for!!
It had everything we need to have a very comfortable stay! Waking up to the horses and chickens was breathtaking! Louise the host was very friendly and helped us decide on dinner arrangements !
We will def be going back!!
Thanks again!

Beautifully planned shepherd's hut with everything you could wish for for a comfortable relaxing stay. The pool was a warm 82, so ideal for a swim even in our less than tropical climate. The three holiday properties are located in different areas meaning that you never feel overlooked.

The whole weekend was perfect. Fantastic location in the countryside. Shepherd hut was luxury, had everything you need and was tasteful. The hot tub was lovely to sit out in the evenings and look out onto the beautiful views. In the evenings 3 horses are rooming the field in front of the hut and even came to say hello over the fence. The hut is south facing so got the sun all day. We did not get around to using the pool but a great addition. All we could hear was the birds, trees, horses and the odd tractor - bliss! Would definitely recommend and hope to come back again

Beautiful place with everything you need and very comfortable, most enjoyable and relaxing. Fabulous swimming pool. If only it were closer to home I'd be back repeatedly. Have already told friends and family they must go! Plus it'd be as much a delightful cosy retreat in winter with the log burner etc. We got the hottest weather so was as good as being abroad.

Our stay in The Shepherds Hut was excellent. Everything we needed was provided including fresh milk, bread and marmalade. The hut was extremely comfortable. There were excellent reading lights and fluffy towels. The hot tub was glorious after a long walk and a quick dip in the pool. The hosts were very helpful and gave great information on where to park and what pubs to visit. I would strongly recommend a stay in the Shepherds Hut and hope to return for another relaxing chilled weekend.

This little place is brilliant. The hut sits on the edge of a little field and wooded area. Over looking the country side and in the distance the Malvern Hills. It is secluded and private and with the added hot tub it was ideal and fantastic. We have a little dog and she was welcomed there and another reason for choosing this place. The huts decor and furnishings are fantastic, everything you want for a romantic time away. If it's laziness you want it's brilliant. My wife absolutely loved it. Prosecco at midnight in the hot tub by candle light you cannot fault that.

We had a fantastic stay. The hut is stylish, comfortable​ and of a very high spec. There are some fantastic walks nearby with some great opportunities for nature spotting.
There was only one tiny drawback. There is a working modern farm close next door and (on a few occasions over the weekend) the noise from there broke the 'spell' of seclusion.

I am glad you had a fantastic stay in Hop Pickers Hideaway. It was a great shame when they built the new farm however as market gardeners specialising in purple sprouting and beans it generally does not cause too much noise disturbance.
