We want you to make the most of your luxury glamping experience so we have put together some of our most asked questions for you, if there is anything we can do to enhance your trip be sure to get in touch.
To ensure the peace and tranquillity of the site for all our guests, unfortunately we do not allow group bookings of the entire site. If you want to book a couple of properties for friends or family to enjoy what Ockeridge Rural Retreats has to offer then we are happy on this basis. Just no Hen, Stag or wild parties allowed!
You’ll need to bring food, drink, clothes, shoes and most importantly yourselves!
Each property has a list of everything that is provided for that particular property however in all cases we provide tea, coffee, and sugar. However, due to allergies we are unable to provide milk.
Our teenage son Jack has a small tuck shop in each property which has water, fizzy drinks, Pringles, and chocolate which are available to purchase, should you choose.
All bedding is provided, along with x2 toilet rolls, soap plus shampoo and shower gel.
Check in is after 2.00pm.
Check out is by 10.00am.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to accommodate either early check ins or late check outs as we need time to ensure each hut is perfectly clean for the next guest.

As much as we love animals, we have made the decision to keep all our properties pet free to keep them dander free for guests who suffer with allergies.
Due to this if you do bring along your pet, we will have to ask you to leave.
You can smoke outside your accommodation, but you will need to fully extinguish any butts before placing inside a bottle and throwing them away.
No Vaping allowed inside the properties
Yes! We highly recommended Broomfield’s Farm Shop, which is 1.5miles from the site. There is also a local post office and general stores in the same village.
There are several good pubs in the local area too, with Worcester city centre being just 6 miles away. See our Places to Eat page for local recommendations.
Unfortunately, we don’t allow firepits onsite
Yes! Each property has at least one television with access to Freeview channels. Please note that as there is no Wi-Fi and so you won’t be able to access Netflix etc.
Yes! We have a commercial rubbish bin onsite with recycling sorted at the local depot.
Just a two-minute walk down the lane will find you at fishing heaven at Ockeridge Fishing Lakes.
We don’t. However, we do provide disposable BBQs which can be purchased from us if you fancy an al fresco feast!
Due to insurance and safety regulations we are required to follow, we are unfortunately unable to allow you to bring your own BBQs, whether flame or gas.
Unfortunately, electric car charging is not currently a facility we are able to provide
Due to our insurance, we operate a guest only policy onsite. There are plenty of great pubs and restaurants you can meet at locally however!
You can park your car right outside your accommodation – super convenient!
Please note that there is only space for one car per property. And due to space restrictions, tailers and lorries cannot be accommodated.
While we send you our congratulations and best wishes, unfortunately time is very tight when turning around each accommodation for the next guests. It is therefore regretfully not a service we are able offer.
We would also politely ask that you don’t bring balloons, as if they escape, they can be dangerous to livestock in the neighbouring fields
Due to safety reasons, we do not allow candles in your accommodation. If you’re looking for a romantic ambience, however, we highly recommend the many ‘flickering flame’ LED candles you can widely purchase.
To ensure the comfort, safety, and privacy of all our guests, drones are not allowed to be flown onsite.
No, we need to ensure the safety of the livestock in neighbouring fields and so fireworks are strictly prohibited
