Herefordshire is my home county, so I may be slightly biased, but it truly is beautiful.

From the rolling green hills to the black-and-white Tudor buildings to the local food produce, there are countless reasons to visit my home county.

And one of those reasons is the number of brilliant glamping sites here!

Herefordshire has especially got its shepherds huts nailed down – and luckily for you, I’ve rounded them all up in one place for you. 

Whether you want a hot tub, beautiful interior design, or amazing views, Herefordshire’s got a romantic shepherds hut just for you!

So without further ado, scroll down to discover the 19 best shepherds huts in Herefordshire that you can stay in.

1. The Queen Bee Cabin

Price per night: From £120 for 2 people

Location: Much Birch, nr Hereford

The Queen Bee Cabin firmly deserves its place at the top of this list of the best shepherds huts in Herefordshire.

The hut is wonderfully unique in every way and there’s so much to love about it.

From the exposed oak beams and the high ceilings to the wooden king-size bed and the numerous bee details, every inch of the space is beautifully hand-crafted and original.

It’s one of the most spacious huts I’ve ever stayed in, comprising a bed, reading nook, dining table, fully-kitted kitchen, and en-suite.

Your surroundings are equally generous, too, with a private two-acre garden all to yourselves!

Even better yet, the hut is easy to access via public transport if you don’t have the luxury of a car.

What guests say: “I cannot begin to express how absolutely magical and perfect the Queen Bee is! Every detail of it was so lovingly and thoughtfully rendered, and it makes for supreme comfort and beauty everywhere you look. Temi and Katrin’s welcome basket was charming and they are always on the lookout for anything you might need to make your stay better.”

2. Prothero Shepherds Hut

Location: Blakemere, nr Madley

Between the ridiculously cosy interior, amazing views, private wood-fired hot tub, and the kindest hosts you’ll ever meet, there are so many reasons to stay in Prothero Shepherds Hut.

Seriously, I adore this place so much.

Tucked away in its own little field, right in the footsteps of the Black Mountains, nature is at its best here.

Expect to wake up to the sounds of birds, woodpeckers, pheasants and owls going about their daily business.

Martha and Reuben do their utmost to make your stay a special one.

Make sure you request a DIY gourmet breakfast hamper, a chilled organic Prosecco, or a s’mores basket before you arrive!

What guests say: “The cabin is so cosy and comes with everything you could need for a lovely, chilled weekend. We used the pizza oven in the outdoor kitchen the first night and cooked breakfast in the hut each morning then enjoyed some al fresco dining around the fire pit. Martha & Reuben were so nice and helpful and even had the hot tub at the perfect temperature for our arrival.”

3. Tom’s Hut

Tom’s Hut at Lower Green Holidays is an absolute dream come true.

Set within 250 beautiful acres of farmland, it’s a rural retreat like no other.

The shepherds hut provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, from the unique hot tub and egg seat to the pizza oven, BBQ, and alfresco dining area complete with a wine cooler.

However, you’ll be equally pleased when you venture inside.

The hut is beautifully decorated and so well-appointed, benefitting from a dreamy double bed, kitchen, and en-suite.

Book a stay here and I know you’ll fall in love with it just as much as I have!

What guests say: “Hands down, the best weekend break ever. Tom’s Hut is absolutely breathtaking. I took my partner here for his birthday and we were blown away. The hut itself is stunning with everything you could possibly need. The views are absolutely beautiful, especially from the hot tub. Jacqui left us Prosecco, chocolates and balloons as part of his birthday package which really was the cherry on top!”

4. Myrtle Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Fawley, nr Ross-on-Wye

The Moroccan chic Myrtle Shepherds Hut is one of the more unique shepherds huts in Herefordshire.

You’ll want to dive headfirst into its sumptuous bed, then explore all the hut’s nooks and crannies, including its beautifully designed en-suite.

The hut is decorated with dark wood, vibrant colours and plush furnishings – it’s a sight for sore eyes, that’s for sure!

Tucked away down a tree-lined path with gorgeous river views, Myrtle has more than just cool interior decor going for it, though.

Take a dip in the river, sunbathe on the grass, or dine alfresco on the riverside using your barbeque.

However you choose to enjoy your surroundings, Myrtle is sure to provide the nature fix you’re after.

What guests say: “The shepherd’s hut is decorated and furnished in a wonderful Moroccan style – we loved the attention to detail around the windows and doors. Even though we were less than an hour from home, it felt like we were in a different world. Listening to the birds and watching the wildlife around the river felt like a proper retreat. The cake was delicious too! A truly magical experience.”

5. Millie the Hut

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Presteigne

If Millie the Hut doesn’t just scream ‘cosy’ to you, I’m not sure what will.

Millie is one of my all-time favourite shepherds huts in the world, let alone Herefordshire.

It’s lovingly filled to the brim with old books, vintage knick-knacks, and patterned soft furnishings.

One stay here and you’ll find it increasingly hard to return to normal life after you discover this alternative way of living.

Outside, the hut glows with the light of wood burners and lanterns, and next to it, you’ll find an outdoor kitchen and shack where you can dine under romantic golden candlelight.

You’ll find Millie in a private meadow, down a leafy lane and over an old Victorian bridge, so you’ll feel like you have the whole world to yourselves here. 

This is romance at its finest – and for just £110 a night, it’s an absolute steal, too!

What guests say: “A truly magical experience. We had the warmest welcome from Paul and Glenys who were the perfect hosts throughout our stay. We were blown away by the attention to detail and the personal touches, such as a welcome basket with champagne, freshly baked bread, the most delicious honeymoon cake which Glenys had baked, and much more. There wasn’t anything they hadn’t thought of.” 

6. Upper House Shepherds Huts

Location: Little Marcle, nr Ledbury

Situated near my gorgeous hometown of Ledbury, Upper House Shepherds Hut is a real treat.

The cosy, well-equipped hut has a kitchen and bathroom, so if the weather’s bad you can cosy up inside.

However, I’d recommend heading out on a long walk to explore some of the area’s best countryside, before coming back to your private sauna to sweat it out.

The hosts even supply a welcome basket on arrival and fresh eggs from the hens so you can cook up a storm in the morning!

Yum.

What guests say: “What a treat. A shepherd’s hut overlooking a field of ewes with their lambs gambolling about… all on an April evening! The hosts are wonderful, thoughtful people whose little extras and cares make you feel so welcome. Views are wonderful, very relaxing and private. Dining and watching the sunset is very good for the soul. Plenty to see and do country, heritage and history-wise too.”

The hut has lots of places for you to enjoy rural life, from the planted garden with a two-tiered patio to the seating area and firepit.

What guests say: “Honestly cannot recommend Fernhall and Robins Nest enough. It’s a paradise inside the shepherds hut and out. Spotlessly clean, with everything you will need for a peaceful, stress-free break. Nicci and Nick are the warmest and most welcoming hosts! We simply did not want to leave.”

Packed into a small space is a cosy double bed with window views, a shaker-style kitchen, and a bathroom with unlimited hot water.

And just a few steps from the hut is a gorgeous yurt that doubles up as a living room.

Or if you fancy bringing a couple of mates along with you, it can be extra sleeping space!

What guests say: “We had an amazing time at Hope House Farm and cannot recommend this enough. Bruce was so welcoming and made us feel right at home, we thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and farm eggs which were fantastic. The shepherd’s hut and yurt were really cosy and the hot tub was a huge added bonus! We enjoyed the lovely walks nearby and feeding the pigs with lots of apples.”

This unique take on the traditional chicken coop is one of the most modern and spacious huts in the county.

Sleeping not one, not two, but five people, it features a king-size bed, single bed, double sofa bed, fully equipped kitchen, TV, and en-suite.

As such, the hut is best suited to a family or group of friends wanting a weekend retreat in the countryside.

Outside, the views are phenomenal and the sunsets are equally spectacular – and luckily, there’s a large decking area ideal for dining and entertaining.

What guests say: “The location is amazing and everything has been built and finished to a really high standard, with lots of attention to detail like the high-quality bedding and board/card games for the family. We were left some delicious home-baked gifts on arrival and some fresh eggs from their own hens. It’s only a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Leominster but feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere.”

Shepherds Hideaway Huts is home to two beautiful huts, each as wonderful and well-equipped as the other.

Located on a 200-acre working farm, the huts enjoy pure rural bliss and privacy, looking out onto the fields beyond.

The highlight of each hut is its private bubbling hot tubs that allow you to soak up your surroundings in style!

As well as the hot tubs, each hut also has plenty of outdoor furniture so you can dine alfresco to your heart’s content.

Both huts are equally well-equipped inside with cosy double beds and kitchens.

However, only one hut has an en-suite, while the other has a separate shower room and loo.

What guests say: “Fabulous, restful, self-contained spot that everyone should go to if they need a rest. Superbly maintained, fresh, well-equipped, and really accessible to many places, I loved it. Laundry smelt lovely, the complimentary basket was a special touch, and everything was really easy.”

The bed is easily one of the cosiest in all these shepherds huts and I’m already daydreaming about curling up there with a book!

Outside, the panoramic views are second-to-none, and the hut is set in a private secluded woodland so you can really get away from it all here.

I think you can now see why The Hereford is one of my favourite shepherds huts in Herefordshire!

What guests say: “You can tell that Marcie and John have really spent time thinking about the quality and that’s even down to the little touches like milk, butter, and a loaf of bread waiting for us on arrival.

Your shower room next door is modern and well-appointed and is set on a spacious veranda with outdoor cooking facilities.

In a separate adjacent hut, you’ll find a dining room, and outside, there’s a fire pit, hammock, and al fresco dining facilities.

The shower and toilet block is a short distance from the huts, so this isn’t the most luxurious glamping site but it’s a glamping site nonetheless.

Ideal for those who love camping and want to stay as close to nature as they can!

What guests say: “Had a brilliant week. Jo and Matt are fantastic hosts who really go out of their way to help you have a great stay. The toilet facilities are spotlessly clean.
