Rookery Retreat: Beautifully presented shepards hut

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 cosy shepherd's hut kitted out with a kingsize bed, a sofa 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 eco 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.

    Absolutely loved our little weekend, facility outstanding, peaceful & so relaxing. We didn’t need anything, everything was there all set up, bedding, towels even lovely homemade biscuits & doggie biscuits. The hut was perfect, very well thought out, Lovely outdoor area, all enclosed so doggie was very happy & not restricted. Very clean spotless facilities, only 10/15 min walk to the local pub, nice walk round the village in the evening. Day out at local Charlecote Park which was only 10 mins drive away.
    We will definitely be staying again.

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.
