The Hop Pocket (right) and The Oast House (left)

Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

This "upside down" cottage is part of an original oast house in the grounds of a small Country House set in unspoilt rolling countryside in an Area of Natural Beauty close to the stunning Malvern Hills. Originally a farm, Hidelow actually had a mention in the Domesday Book!

The Hop Pocket itself has stunning open views of the surrounding farmland on three sides and is located in a beautiful, unspoilt part of rural central England; yet it is easily accessible form the motorway, only 1 hour from Birmingham and 2 hours from London and Manchester.

The cottage is a popular honeymoon destination and would suit a couple wishing to "get away from it all".

There is a great deal to do locally - enjoy the Flavours of Herefordshire – local cheeses, wines, beers and ciders or visit the historic attractions of the Shire counties, all within a few minutes' drive........... Or just soak in your double jacuzzi bath with a glass of local brew!

Further details indoors

Upstairs, The Hop Pocket has a vaulted ceiling and exposed ancient king pin trusses; its open plan design blends modern furnishing and convenience with unspoilt oast house architecture. A woodburning stove built into a big stone fireplace in the lounge area adds to the comfort of this well-appointed cottage. It has a modern integrated kitchen with a full range of electric appliances and the lounge/diner has table and 4 chairs and 3 piece suite also seating 4 people.

Downstairs, a kingsize carved mahogany 4-poster bed and the ensuite bathroom with double ended jacuzzi bath and separate corner power shower all add to the luxury of this beautiful cottage.

Outside, The Hop Pocket has its own garden with table, chairs and BBQ; guests also have access to wander around the landscaped gardens of the main house.

We recommend this cottage for couples wishing for a quiet relaxed break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, in a luxurious setting.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

Worcestershire is located in the Heart of England and offers a blend of outstanding scenery and places to visit to suit all interests.

Acton Beauchamp lies on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Within a few minutes' drive are also Shropshire and Warwickshire, there is so much to see:

In Herefordshire:

The Wye Valley, Black and White Village trail, Eastnor Castle, The Chained Library, Lower Brockhampton Court and Hampton Court Gardens.

In Worcestershire: Elgar’s Birthplace, Great Witley Court, Worcester Porcelain, Morgan Cars, Avoncroft Museum of Buildings and the Severn Valley Steam Railway.

In Warwickshire: The Cotswolds, Warwick Castle, Shakespeare’s Stratford and Cadbury World.

In Shropshire: Ludlow, The Ironbridge Museum and The Acton Scott Farm Museum.

For the energetic, there is riding, golf, fishing, a day at the races, quad-biking, canoeing, theatre visits, countless open gardens and plenty of walking opportunities.

Malvern

Acton Beauchamp is located about halfway between Bromyard in the north and Malvern to the south (about 6 miles to each). Bromyard is a small, friendly and intimate town on the Herefordshire/Worcestershire border and is one of the characteristic half-timbered towns on the "Black and White Trail", rivalling the famous Cotswold architecture for picturesque beauty.

Bromyard is also famous as a Town of Festivals one of which is hosted almost every month. These include the nationally reknowned Bromyard Folk Festival, The Scarecrow Festival, Marmalade Festival, International Town Criers Festival, Literary Festival, Bromyard Music and Jazz Festival, Noztock Rock Festival, Bromyard Gala and Steam Rally, Bromyard Hop Festival and to finish the year in style, the Bromyard Christmas Illuminations. Bromyard does nothing by halves and each event is well worth the effort to visit. The nearby town of Tenbury has a Mistletoe Festival around Christmas and Worcester has a Victorian Christmas Street Fair.

Malvern is perhaps more sophisticated. Famous for Malvern Water with its royal seal of approval, Malvern has a strong history as a Spa Town. The natural, pure spring water emerges from fissures in the ancient rock of the Malvern Hills at a number of natural spouts around the town; Queen Victoria refused to travel without it, and it is the only bottled water used by Elizabeth II, which she takes on her travels around the world. The various wells or 'spouts' are 'dressed' in the traditional way once a year. Malvern is also the home of the Morgan Motor Car; it is possible to book factory tours and see the cars in production.

The Malvern Hills are easily accessible for long and short walks along 100 miles of footpaths and the views from everywhere are spectacular. it is said that it is possible to see 15 different counties from the top. Malvern also has literary and musical links with Tennyson and Sir Edward Elgar, whose birthplace and museum is at Lower Broadheath.

Malvern also boasts an excellent theatre, hosting productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The 'Smallest Theatre in the World', also in Malvern, is spectacularly converted from an old Victorian Gentleman's lavatory and is also well worth a visit.

Other nearby towns have numerous other festivals: Ledbury Poetry Festival, Upton-on-Severn has Jazz, Blues and Folk Festivals, Much Marcle has a Big Apple weekend and The Three Counties Showground has events every week.
