A fishing permit for the River Severn can be purchased in town or head downstream to try your skills in a coracle.

Park the car and stroll down to this lovely shepherd’s hut with all your home comforts in the most magical of settings amongst woodland and rolling countryside. Once inside you have the full-size double bed to your left, then the lounge/kitchen/diner to your right. The wood burner takes centre stage by the side of the sofa for cosy nights in, maybe watching a film on TV. If you decide to eat in, the kitchen area is equipped with an electric oven and two-ring hob, fridge/freezer and microwave. It is a lovely space to rustle up a meal and enjoy your culinary delights at the cosy dining table, perfectly positioned by the window; open up the doors and let the outside in or head out on to the deck. Take a leisurely shower in the en-suite shower room with WC. Enjoy a good night’s sleep in the lovely double bed with fabulous views to wake up to.

Wonderful outside spaces to enjoy, a decking area with table and chairs, a brick-built charcoal BBQ, extensive lawn, seasonal planting, and an elevated deck suspended over a stream below with table and chairs is perfect for an afternoon treat.

We had a wonderful weekend staying in this small but perfectly formed corner of paradise! The hut had everything we could have needed for our stay and was so quiet and peaceful. Our hosts were exceptionally welcoming, even leaving the log burner lit and lights on for our arrival and providing suggestions for walks in the area. Our cocker spaniel waRead mores delighted by the amount of walking available on the doorstep (and by the fire in the evenings!). Very much recommend a stay at Wrens Nest! Hide

Perfect little getaway as a couple with our dog. Very cosy and warm once with the wood burner and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Derek was lovely and very welcoming and Molly the dog came to check on us as we were leaving. Will definitely be staying again.
