Forest Lodge

Broad Oak Trout Lakes are no longer just for anglers, now they’re for holidaymakers too! The owners are pleased to welcome guests to newly built self catering accommodation in their idyllic surroundings. Two beautiful lakeside lodges and a delightful shepherd’s hut offer peaceful spaces in which to relax, unwind and step away from the workaday world.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Malvern Hills, the semi-detached lodges are cosy, comfortable, snug and dog friendly. The larger, Forest Lodge, sleeps four people in two bedrooms and has an open plan living area, kitchenette, shower room, veranda and private garden. Fern Lodge has similar facilities but sleeps two people in one bedroom. Both have log burning stoves, sofas plus everything needed from hand knitted slippers to parking space.

The shepherd’s hut is off-grid but beautifully appointed and makes a romantic space for a getaway holiday. It has its own composting toilet and showers are available on site.

The accommodation has attracted fantastic guest reviews from the first season’s lettings.

Owner Charlotte Vincent says: “Malvern is very cultural and has excellent theatres which stage shows including West End productions, ballet, opera and concerts. We’re only three miles from Upton upon Severn and people really enjoy visiting the medieval town of Ledbury and the National Trust properties of Brockhampton and Croome Court. 

“We’re very rural, yet only minutes from the M5 and M50 motorways.”

Upsticks Glamping

Getting close to nature is not only exhilarating but also warm and snug when you do it with Upsticks Glamping. This 17 acre rural idyll at the foot of the Malvern Hills provides boutique safari lodges resplendent with luxuries from well sprung beds to steaming showers. In a setting full of wildlife, guests can even soak in a wood fired hot tub while they plan adventures around the beautiful Malvern Hills, River Wye and Forest of Dean.

Upsticks Glamping offers top quality canvas accommodation with well equipped kitchens, private bathrooms and living areas with wood burning stoves, all linked together with wooden boardwalks to avoid muddy feet. The ground floors have two bedrooms – a double and a twin – but children frequently bag the upstairs sleep ‘loft’ in the eaves.

Owners Charlotte & Steve have hand picked every item in the three lodges, complementing the rustic setting but adding the gift of pampering, from feather duvets to fluffy towels and welcome baskets of delicious goodies.

Outdoors, each lodge has a deck and dining area with fire pit where guests can BBQ or gather to watch the sun set. Whilst the onsite ‘Rum Shack’ offers a place for larger groups to eat, party or play garden games. The pantry offers a range of local fare or just two minutes’ walk away is the Farmers Arms pub. With gastro pubs a plenty, a vibrant local cider scene, and every festival going in Upton-upon-Severn to the three counties showground you won’t get bored.
