Delightful Shepherd's Hut with Tipi at the Millstream Camp in the grounds of Lower Buckton Country House, near Leintwardine on the borders of north Herefordshire and south Shropshire where England meets Wales. There are fabulous views, stunning scenery, riverside walks, country lanes & woodland
A perfect pitch for two plus you dog and even your horse! Top level glamping in restored shepherd's hut with the tipi nearby and all you'll need for self-catering under the stars. All situated beside an ancient millstream which was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Sleep upon luscious linen beneath a sheepswool Baavet on a 5' wide x 6' long double bed with luxurious sheepswool topper. A blissful night's sleep!
The hut oh so cosy with its vintage enameled wood burning stove on which to quick boil the kettle and keep you snug.
Outside in your own designated personal campsite area is the traditional tipi, handmade in Herefordshire using ash poles from sustainable woodlands. In here are two day beds for warm weather and storage space for all your gear. There's even a wind-up record player for 78s! We just love the pleasing shape of the tipi and how it sits in the landscape.
There is cold running water, piped straight from a private spring. It is delicious to drink, so don't bring nasty bottled stuff! Beside the babbling brook, in a series of corrugated-roofed shelters are the water tower with solar panel for warm water on a good day, the Calor-heated outdoor shower with eco body & hair products and the bbq area which has loads of cooking pots and utensils which can also be used on the open fir-pit which lies between the hut and tipi.
The piece de resistance is the "hot tub". A Victorian cast iron bath has been raised on blocks to enable a fire to be lit beneath. Just full with water from the tap and light the fire. Wait awhile for the water to reach the desired temperature and for flames and smoke to die down then light some candles, get yourself a drink and immerse yourself in the deep warm water - preferably when the stars are out!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A4113 between Leintwardine and Knighton take the Adleymoor/Buckton lane at the Walford crossroads. As you enter the hamlet of Buckton you'll notice an old mill on the left of the lane, then a triangle of grass. Keep driving around to the left and into Lower Buckton's yard, through a white gate.
Lower Buckton is situated at the gateway to some of the most tranquil, beautiful and unspoilt country in England and Wales. Unlimited access to Forestry Commission land including Mortimer Forest and other woodlands with networks of public footpaths and bridleways for walking, riding and cycling. Dramatic parts of Offa's Dyke and the Mortimer Trail with panoramic views of mid Wales, Shropshire and Herefordshire.
Castle hunting from the romantic ruins of Clun to the mediaeval splendours of Stokesay is a must
Or spend a day steeple chasing from the tiny Heath Chapel set in a field to cathedral like St Laurence's Church in Ludlow. A wealth of private, N T and English Heritage stately houses and gardens awaits a visit. Go giddy climbing a spiral stair or lose yourself in a clematis maze.
Discover and explore ancient border towns with cobbled streets and gabled houses steeped in history. Shop 'till you drop and maybe commission some art in glass or go potty and buy a garden urn from leading artists at their studios. Follow the Black and White Village Trail and stop for afternoon tea or take the Cider Route for something stronger!
