About Linda Smith

Pearl Lake Leisure Park is a family owned/run 5* award winning holiday park set in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

We care about the countryside which surrounds us and maintain our park for conservation and wildlife. The result is peace, tranquility and relaxation away from the pressures of everyday life.

Linda Smith purchased this house in 2000

Why Linda Smith chose Shobdon

Keepers Cottage was purchased in conjunction with the leisure park in 2000 by the current owners who have brought the park up to a 5* standard. Keepers was sympathetically renovated in 2009 ensuring that the original features were kept intact.

The cottage is situated in a secluded area of the park with views over the well established golf course and the surrounding countryside. Keepers cottage was thought to have been the Game Keepers cottage when the park was part of the Bateman Court Estate in the early 19th Century. The Court is still in residence and can be seen from the Park.

What makes this house unique

Keepers Cottage will offer a peaceful, tranquil and relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. For the sport minded visitor there are day or week passes for both the golf course and fishing lake. Crown green bowling is also available.

At the end of the day 'The Lakeside' restaurant and bar is a short walk away where a friendly reception and good food awaits.
