Descripción

A former chicken shed; the hen house is individual, light, spacious and offers comfortable, well-equipped accommodation in a rural location. Ideal for exploring the area, for couples wanting to enjoy a quiet, romantic break or a great bolt hole to work or study.

We converted this chicken shed for ourselves as we needed a temporary home for at least a year while we renovated our house. We ensured it was spacious enough for ourselves, 3 cats and for my husband to run his business. We ended up spending 18 happy months in the Hen House and were sad to move out. We loved it so much we thought others might enjoy it too!

There is plenty of space to accommodate a travel cot (not supplied)

On arrival guests will find pantry staples of tea, coffee, olive oil etc. Milk, butter, delicious homemade bread and freshly-laid eggs from our chickens are provided for your first breakfast

There is table tennis in an open barn which guests are welcome to use and where you can also store bikes
Plenty of outdoor space with tables and chairs and a BBQ

The Hen House is in the grounds of our home and we are very happy if guests wish to ask our advice on places to visit, recommend restaurants etc and we will book them for you if required. Of course we respect your privacy and wishes to get away for a break, so will leave you alone unless asked!
One of us tries to make sure we are here to greet guests on arrival and show you around.

We are in a great location to explore the three glorious counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

The busy market town of Ledbury is a 15 minute drive away with individual shops, twice weekly market, good places to eat and a poetry festival held in July.

You can walk out from the Hen House and explore miles of footpaths through the beautfiul Leadon Valley. The magnificent Malvern Hills are a short drive away and easily accessed from the deer park at Eastnor Castle.

In May the RHS Spring Garden Show is held at the Three Counties Showground at Malvern. There is an excellent theatre in Malvern which has a varied programme of music, shows, talks and often pre West End plays and also includes a single screen cinema

Cheltenham, half an hour away, holds festivals throughout the year; the Gold Cup Racing in March, Jazz April/May, Science in June, Music June/July and the renowned Literary festival in October. There are some excellent restaurants and good shopping

There are plenty of places to eat locally from pubs serving good, locally sourced seasonal food, a single estate vineyard, the Three Choirs where you can take a tour, taste the wine and eat in their restaurant, or treat yourselves to lunch or dinner at the Michelin starred pub The Butcher's Arms, but you do have to book this well in advance as it is very popular

A car is essential and there is plenty of parking here, but we are happy to collect guests from the station (Gloucester is best if coming from London), but you cannot rely on buses to get around!!

Wifi, books, magazines, dvd's, board games and local maps and guides, piano

1.5 miles to the village shop/post office and pub 'The Swan' which serves local food and takeaway fish and chips on a Friday night

This is a fantastic gem of a place tucked between the Malvern Hills and the cotswolds. We couldn't have asked for more from our hosts, and the accommodation was stunning. Will definitely be returning!

The Hen house is a gem! We had the most peaceful week there and were made to feel very welcome. The location was ideal to explore the local area and fresh bread and eggs on arrival was a very nice touch too!

We came for a few days of escape from life in London: the hen house is an absolute treasure of a place that gave us everything we were looking for. If you want to unwind, de-stress and enjoy the simple pleasures of being surrounded by peaceful countryside, then this unique and charming bolt hole is the perfect spot. Nicki and Johnnie are superb hosts who offered a wonderfully warm welcome and made us feel very much at home as soon as we arrived. They have created a beautifully-designed and well-equipped sanctuary where we were incredibly comfortable. The lovely big bed, vases of wildflowers and fluffy white bath towels all added to a feeling of being very well looked after on our country retreat. The fresh eggs, bread and homemade flapjacks were very welcome touches - we demolished the lot! We loved settling down in front of the log burner, playing games and enjoying the peace, but there are also beautiful fields, lanes and woodland to explore as soon as you step out of the door. A visit to the Michelin-starred Butcher's Arms is a must - the setting, service and food are all wonderful. The hen house is a very special place. We were already talking about coming back before we'd even torn ourselves away! Huge thanks to Nicki and Johnnie for opening up this little gem and being so accommodating. Kate & Terrence

We had a fantastic weekend and really warm welcome, the arrival gifts were much appreciated and very tasty! The Hen House is a perfect place to relax, and the local area is very peaceful. We enjoyed local walks, jogging and a trip to the Swan which was also very nice, but relaxing in the hen house and playing the piano was our favourite part of our stay. Nicki and Johnny were the perfect hosts, they made us feel very welcome, and it was clear that if we needed anything they would be happy to help. We have already recommended to several friends and colleagues and will ourselves return. Thank you Nicki and Johnny.

Tucked away in a peaceful spot away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, the hen house really is a complete escape. Such a beautiful location. From the free range chickens to the wonderful fig tree oozing fruit, it was wonderful to just spend time here, soaking up the surroundings. The hen house itself was huge! Lovely and roomy, really stylish interior with personal and thoughtful touches everywhere. We were well and truly looked after by Nicki and Johnnie. Such lovely, interesting people. We were made to feel incredibly welcome, almost as if we were their first ever guests. The homemade bread and flapjacks were very much appreciated as well as apple juice, milk etc in the fridge. Johnnie also gave us beetroot and mint from his veg patch. Delicious! Thank you for a brilliant stay - two nights felt like a whole week. We hope to be back.
