Rookery Retreat: View of site

General

  • Quiet self-contained glamping site on a farm in Ettington
  • A 15-minute drive from Stratford-upon-Avon
  • Private space with barbecue, hammock, and indoor kitchen and bathroom

A secluded, self-contained glamping area on a small farm – Rookery Retreat is a place for those who hanker after a peaceful slice of rural life.

There’s no need to cart heaps of kit with you, for all is set up ready and waiting at your temporary domain, on the edge of a working cattle farm and livery in the village of Ettington. From here it’s a short leisurely stroll to the local pub and shop (where you can pick up daily supplies of freshly baked bread and other goodies) or to nearby walking trails. If you’d like to venture further afield, Stratford-upon-Avon is 15 minutes away, and the site is less than half an hour from the Cotswolds.

Accommodation is in a spacious bell tent kitted out with a kingsize bed, comfy chairs and a woodburning stove. A few steps away is the woodman’s hut with all amenities: a small kitchen and a bathroom with electric shower and compost toilet.

All this is surrounded by your own personal outdoor area, with a gas barbecue, chiminea and a selection of spots in which to relax. (Which to go for first? The deckchairs, the bench or the hammock – oh, the dilemma.) It’s all fenced off too, so once the gate is closed any dogs you’ve brought along for the ride are welcome to dash about freely.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 7 consecutive nights.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

  • Liked: 

    Absolutely everything we needed was there, lots of thoughtful touches throughout the shepherds hut. The bed was so comfy and the area around the hut is private, our dog loved having a run around outside.

    Disliked: 

    Weather (not the fault of Rookery Retreat!)
    Sadly we couldn’t enjoy the outdoor area due to the bad weather.

From the manager...

Hope you can come back with better weather to enjoy the out doors!

Absolutely beautiful and peaceful location06/06/2021

  • Liked: 

    The location, near to Stratford - on - Avon, Gaydon and Warwick ( castle).
    The hut was clean and fresh with a good wood burner and a very comfortable bed.
    There is a barbecue area and the garden is all your own.
    The bathroom and washing up area is separate but this is not a problem as the area is very private.
    Will be going here again as it was so nice and peaceful, the dog loved the freedom and the special dog bed.

Local attractions

Head to Stratford-upon-Avon 15 minutes away by car to follow in the footsteps of the town’s most famed son – there’s all manner of Shakespeare-related attractions over here, including the Shakespeare’s Birthplace museum, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Mary Arden’s Farm and shows at the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre.

Leaving the Bard behind, drive a few minutes further north (around 20 from the farm) to gawp at gorgeous Warwick Castle, wander around Charlecote Park or see the huge collection of vintage cars at the British Motor Museum. You may be able to catch a meet at Warwick Racecourse; if not, try your luck betting on the sheep races at Hatton Country World (also home to lots of other animals and activities).

There are lots of local walks to be had, but you may also like to stretch your legs a little more wandering through the Cotswolds, half an hour away. Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Moreton-in-Marsh are some of the top spots for a scenic stroll.
