This unique glamping getaway is located in Shropshire, England, close to romantic castle ruins that can be seen right from the property. The oak-framed rental can accommodate up to two guests and includes a full-size bed, a pure sheep’s wool duvet from Wales, 100% natural cotton linens, and feather-down pillows. There is also a sheepskin wool rug and vibrant vintage crocheted blankets. To keep glampers warm, there is a wood-burning stove inside the hut, along with windows hung with vintage curtains to make guests feel right at home.

There is a shower facility with hot water on demand nearby. Complimentary organic body washes, soaps, and shampoos will be provided. The hosts ask guests not to bring their own shampoos or body washes to keep the property free of chemicals and dyes. There is a simple and clean outdoor toilet for guests to have access to as well.

For added luxury, there is an outdoor cast-iron bathtub that is kept warm by the wood-burning fire underneath. This is the perfect spot to unwind, surrounded by the starry night sky and flickering candles.

Guests will have access to a field kitchen that includes a BBQ grill, cooking pots, cast-iron griddles, pots, pans, enamel tins, utensils, and chopping boards. To get guests started on whipping up dinner, there is a complimentary supply of local, sustainable produced charcoal and eco-friendly materials to start a fire. To warm up or cook a meal, there is a fire pit that includes a traditional cooking pot hanging over it. There's also a recipe book that contains yummy camp-fire ready recipes. To add to the dish, the hosts can offer glampers extra herbs and vegetables from the garden.

Outside, glampers can enjoy their private mess tent that is perfect for sitting down and enjoying a meal inside.

This self-contained old country farmhouse is located in the small hamlet of Buckton on the borders of north Herefordshire and south Shropshire, only ten miles west of Ludlow, United Kingdom. Wales is just up the road. In the large gardens, guests will find open well-kept grass areas, paved terraces and ornate metal garden tables and chairs. Glamper can take a walk on the property along wild country garden flowers, herbs, shrubs, and juicy fruit trees. There is a mill stream that runs through the property, and if guests are lucky, when the stream floods, it forms a natural bathing pool to cool off in. There is also a peaceful seventeenth-century mill that has been recently restored with a nineteenth-century cast-iron wheel and wooden floats.

Guests can take an evening walk on the Oak Bridge, which is made from a slice of a tree trunk from a local estate. If glampers follow this bridge, they'll end up taking a stroll past the gardens near the kitchen, the croquet lawn, and the tranquil gated area where the horses are kept. These horses graze on a pasture full of seasonal wildflowers, colorful butterflies, and buzzing bees.
