“Peaceful retreat for wildlife lovers”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

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.
