“Beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 23 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The house and surroundings are really beautiful and peaceful. Woodland Retreat was warm, comfortable and supplied with everything you could possibly need for your stay - including duck pellets! The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in.
Suzanne and Danny were really friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to eat and park in Ledbury.
We will definitely be back, it was perfect.

“Back again!”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This is our accommodation of choice when visiting the Three Counties of Hereford, Worcs. and Glos. Charming, helpful and amenable hosts and even their feathered friends are amusing. In three minutes we watched a woodpecker, a tree-creeper, two robins, fed a couple of ducks and then a squirrel. We are sure to be back . .

“Peaceful, idyllic setting”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Set in a woodland area with fields and open country surround the property, could not wish for a better location. The only noise to disturb visitors is an occasional train passing by on an adjacent track, once you know, it is easy to ignore.
The owners Suzanne and Danny are the nicest people who could not be more helpful, they are a great source of local knowledge about places of interest, events and restaurants.
The property s about a mile from Ledbury which is a lovely town with lots of interesting places, shops and places to eat.

“Peaceful retreat for wildlife lovers”

If you need a place to slip away from the hustle and bustle, this is it. But be prepared for visitors of the feathered and furred variety! I spent a quiet time here hosted by a couple who have transformed a former industrial revolution site (a former pumphouse) near Ledbury into a delightful retreat in a Herefordshire woodland setting. The attention to detail, provisions and comfort of the one bedroom cabin were all great! Home-baked delicacies awaited me when i arrived and all help given to settle in (a short walk over a little bridge over the stream that separates the cabin from the main house necessitates carrying what you need from the car park). It was a wet and cool week in May but the main room/kitchen area, bathroom and bedroom are efficiently heated and umbrellas provided. There is a fine wooden deck where you can sit out for meals/relaxation but sadly the rain prevented me using this (and the matting by the door got very soggy in the rain so hard to keep water/leaves/mud from tracking in). Very soon after I arrived I was checked out by the local fauna - ducks and squirrels come to call so be prepared! Birdlife abounds in the local trees and the lovely garden areas bring in wildlife. The kitchen was fully equipt for self-catering and you can purchase duck eggs from the hosts (some were provided free of charge when I arrived). The Woodland Retreat cabin makes an excellent base for Ledbury close by and exploring the local towns and villages; an interesting antiques/cafe sits near the entrance to the track down to the main house and is worth a visit. Phone signal/wifi were difficult but this is a 'retreat'; access was available nearby and in Ledbury. Finding the entrance to the track was the only difficulty I had as the instructions for Massingham Lodge were a bit confusing and as I drove down from Malvern I took one wrong turn (a phone call to the owners, however, put me right) but if you look for the 'Posterity' antiques place then you find the track just nearby and it is signposted (but perhaps a bigger sign would be good). The owners were there to greet me and provide key and explain all, and were always helpful with local knowledge.
