The Farmhouse

Cottage | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden
  • Car advised

The Farmouse is a very large 5 Star/ NAS 2M graded cottage 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! This is a beautiful, unspoilt part of rural central England; yet easily accessible from the motorway, only 1 hour from Birmingham & 2 hours from London and Manchester

The cottage has lovely open views of the surrounding farmland on all sides. Popular for holidays and short breaks, we would recommend it for a large group of family comprising 2, 3 or even 4 generations or friends including one or more member who is disabled and requires full accessibility with a ground floor bedroom and level access shower room.

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.

May we suggest:

To help you relax, unwind, celebrate.......

... A Breakfast hamper of local goodies, Pampering, wine tasting, a private gourmet dinner party - all in your cottage, (or a buffet delivered to your door) finishing with a dip in the hot tub?

If you are feeling more energetic: Riding, golf, fishing, days at the races, quad-biking, laser clay shooting, canoeing, belly dancing lessons, theatre visits, local attractions and walks on the Malvern Hills.

NB. NOT PRICED 'BY THE NIGHT' (PLEASE SEE 'PRICES' BELOW).

The Central England/Cotswolds region

Worcestershire in the Heart of England 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.Acton Beauchamp is located about halfway between Bromyard in the north and Malvern to the south (about 6 miles to each).

5/5

"Wonderful stay"

I booked the farmhouse for my Mums 80th birthday. The group of 9 included my 80 year old parents, teenage sons and their cousins and 8 year old nephew. The house was 5* clean and very comfortable with hotel like luxury. There was a play area for the younger members and plenty of space for the teenage members ,all enjoyed the hot tub.
The owners were welcoming and very helpful supplying maps and ideas.
A lovely unspoilt part of the world.
We look forward to staying there again very soon.
