Stardust Stargazing Hut is a luxurious and cosy retreat for two set next to a private lake and woodlands. Guests can enjoy a romantic retreat with a unique glass panel roof, Scandinavian hot tub, chimenea, and wood burning stove.
This stunning shepherds hut is located in a beautiful rural setting within the grounds of a working llama farm which offers unique llama trekking experiences with experienced and friendly staff. The farm itself lies within 32 acres of grass and woodland with wonderful views to the Malvern Hills. There is a large privately owned lake nearby, well stocked with tench, bream, perch, rudd and even bleak, which guests are welcome to use it for coarse fishing (at their own risk). The area is full of native wildlife such as frogs, newts, toads and dragonflies – with an occasional chance to glimpse a kingfisher.
Also available to book at this location is The Granary (sleeping two guests).
