We wanted to get away from our normal hectic schedule to somewhere with peace & quiet and plenty of chill factor. We were not disappointed. The location was ideal for us. As you approach up the long drive you have magnificent views of the Malvern hills and you could see some of the beckoning walking trails amongst them. As you arrive onto the farm everything is oh so pretty ( even in Feb). The ponds, the wildlife, the greenery & then the buildings. These cottages are fascinating from the outside. So much quirky detailing and once inside our cottage was so much larger than expected. The owners have put a lot of thought in the refurbishing of the inside. Although it is a modern refurbishment, the features blend in with the age of the building perfectly, its like having the best of both worlds. The cottage has been filled with lots of individual items from all around the globe including some very local art projects- there was certainly plenty of things to talk about The bed was extremely comfortable & a good nights sleep was had by all and my favourite feature was the log burner. It was lush & Clive the owner kept us well supplied with any logs that we required. Clive & his wife were lovely and were available for help , advice or information whenever it was requested & even brought fresh towels half way through our stay. I have to say that a major factor for us ( & our 2 teenage children)was the excellent WIFI reception although sitting in the Hot tub at night watching the stars was also up there with enjoyment factor.
There is an abundance of walks in this area to suit everybody's requirements & also plenty of viewing cafes etc. If you require a bit of retail therapy, look no further than Malvern with lots of individual shops, nooks & crannies. Here you will also find a Waitrose if you require supplies.
The nearest village is Colwall - a 10 minute walk where you could find a Pharmacy, a small convenience store ( be warned- they do not supply any bags-take your own). For eating here, there's a couple of pubs, The Colwall Park Hotel and a little cafe run by a lovely guy called Neil. If like me- you are determined not to cook then this is the place for breakfast. For more of a market town, there is Ledbury -10 mins drive. Again It mainly consist of independent shops but it was great for eating - so much choice. The Olive Tree, a Mediterranean/Italian restaurant was fabulous. Also enjoyed pizza & tapas at a warm & welcoming little pub with a clay oven in the bar ( The Horseshoe inn) & even managed a take-away from a very popular indian restaurant by the name of Raj Mahal.
I am pleased to say that we came home well rested
