Shepherd’s hut and bell tent in Herefordshire: This magical getaway offers a family glamping experience like no other, roam through the apple trees with your beloved pooch, cook alfresco in the outdoor kitchen, then get cosy in the wholesome hut.


Meander through apple trees to find this picture-perfect retreat, complete with a lovingly restored oak shepherds hut, beautiful bell tent and quirky outdoor kitchen. It is the most idyllic escape for couples and families alike. Your beloved pooch is warmly welcomed at The Cider Camp, stroll down to the bank of the River Wye and enjoy a picnic by the water. Or cook up a family feast in the ‘field kitchen’ and dine alfresco! The bell tent pays respect to a traditional style of glamping. You can even shower under the stars in the unique open air shower-room… utterly enchanting!

Step Inside

Enter the shepherd's hut to be greeted with lovely countryside charm and a thoughtful living space. Its clever design utilises the space perfectly. There is a cosy, built-in double bed, a single bunk bed and another single bed (the two single beds can be made up upon request and are suitable for younger children if they would prefer to sleep in the hut with their parents, rather than in the bell tent). There is also a lovely fold away table and warming wood-burner to keep you nice and toasty on those chilly eves. Just a few steps away sits the beautiful bell tent with pretty bunting and a colourful rug. Accommodating two, it's the perfect little den for younger guests, but also suitable for two adults. You will also find a rustic little hut on the site, complete with WC, wash area and open air shower… shower alfresco as stars twinkle above, such a unique experience!


This hideaway is a dream for outdoor lovers, with so much natural beauty to discover. The sheltered ‘field kitchen’ is a wonderful feature, providing a rustic living area and fully equipped kitchen. Including a 2 ring gas hob, gas oven, fridge and plenty of utensils to rustle up a holiday feast. Dine at the lovely dinner table or on the picnic bench out in the sunshine… bliss! Enjoy views of the unspoilt Herefordshire countryside or pop on your walking boots and explore it for yourself. Pack up a picnic and head down to the stunning bank of the River Wye, seeing which species of wildlife you can spot along the way! You will have private access to an idyllic spot by the river; sit and read a book, light a campfire or simply soak in the tranquillity. There is also fishing available at The Cider Camp (at an additional cost). Return to your secret retreat and gather round the firepit for some storytelling and marshmallow toasting! Here, you will make holiday memories to cherish forever.


The Cider Camp is totally off grid so there is no WiFi or electricity, making it perfect for a digital detox. The fridge and lights are solar powered.


We wouldn't blame you for spending your days soaking up the sunshine at The Cider Camp. But, if you did want to venture out, Herefordshire offers a variety of wild landscapes. Canoe along the River Wye, head out for a woodland walk or use pedal power to explore its pretty country lanes. The Cathedral city of Hereford, lies on the River Wye and promises scenes out of a fairytale. Its historic buildings, golden-stone Cathedral and independent shops are oh so lovely, with plenty of delicious eateries to choose from along the way! There are great museums to discover in the city, including the Black and White House Museum, The Museum of Cider and the Chained Library. Visit the Old Market for open-air shopping, dining and cinema or head to The Courtyard Hereford for theatre, comedy and art workshops.

Take a relaxing stoll from the city to the countryside towards Breinton Springs, leading you through woodland, apple orchards and bluebells. For more beauty, visit the National Trust property of Berrington Hall, The Weir Garden and Brobury House or pack up a picnic and make your way to the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Brecon Beacons - both making for unforgettable day trips. After a day full of adventures, stop at Monkland Cheese Dairy for a cheese tasting tour, or simply pick up some delicious cheese, chutneys and local jams to be enjoyed back at The Cider Camp!
