Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Meal House, which has been furnished and equipped to a high standard, has been carefully converted from stables by local craftsman, and maintains as many original features as possible. It has always been known as The Meal House as the animal feeds were stored here. There is quality flooring throughout with a combination of honey coloured flagstones and oak boards but with carpets in the bedrooms. A brick archway leads into the sitting room with a small study area - useful for those on a 'working holiday'! French doors lead from the conservatory area on to the patio and lawn which overlooks the large pond. The fully fitted kitchen has an integrated fridge and dishwasher, a microwave and range cooker with two ovens.
A farm location on the edge of the village of Himbleton, The Meal House stands alone but will work well for a family group if booked with The Granary (C153) and Diamond Cottage (C153B) accommodating 13 in total. A lovely situation and very central for Worcester, Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham and the surrounding area.
Dogs are welcome (by arrangement please) but be prepared to meet the resident cats and dogs or find a chicken clucking around the garden! This is very much a family working farm.
Situated across the courtyard from the others, perhaps the most sumptuous of the 3 holiday cottages we have here.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
From Windsor to the Welsh Borders our area offers a taste of what was and what is...fabulous properties of historic and architectural interest that sit alongside pretty tea rooms, gastro pubs, shops, restaurants etc etc!
In a simply stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are the Cotswolds with the unique honey-coloured stone, ancient woodlands and miles of rolling hills and over 3,000 miles of public footpaths. The rivers Windrush and Coln trickle their way through some of the prettiest Cotswold towns and villages you will ever come across, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury. Royal Berkshire and the Thames Valley are on the doorstep of the Capital. Stay in Windsor (with a royal neighbour!), be close to Henley-on-Thames famous for Henley Regatta or walk The Thames Path as the river meanders through rural villages, historic towns and peaceful water meadows before it reaches the Thames Barrier in the heart of London. From your 'own' front door you can explore the contrasts of Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Shropshire. Visit the theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon, walk the Ridgeway Path from the Thames in the west through to the atmospheric Chiltern Hills.
Our towns and villages optimise the English rural scene...cricket on the green, a glass of locally brewed beer, peace and quiet - lovely!
The village of Himbleton seems to be miles from anywhere such is the peaceful ambience of the surrounding countryside yet it is only about 4 miles south-east of Droitwich Spa and 7 miles from the cathedral city of Worcester. A popular area with heaps of walks and cycle routes including the Wychavon Way which begins in historic Droitwich and ends in the stunning village of Broadway. The beautiful Cotswolds, the Vale of Evesham and the impressive Malvern Hills are all areas close at hand.
