Description from owner

Description

Converted from former stone and timber calf pens, Katherine's Cottage is full of character. It has a wealth of exposed timbers and king-pin trusses inside, which still bear the original carpenter's marks. It is a fully accessible single storey cottage which is very spacious, all on one level and with no steps or ramps. It has its own parking area and entrance through a covered porch and amazing uninterrupted views for miles across fileds and pastureland.

History
'Katherine's Cottage' preserves the history of Hidelow, bequeathed to St. Katherine's Hospital Trust, Ledbury in 1240. Hidelow remained in the Hospital's ownership for over 750 years, until we purchased it in 1993. Our neighbouring farm and the Almshouses in Ledbury still belong to the Hospital and are administered by the Diocesan Office at Hereford Cathedral.

Location description from owner

The England 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: Elgars Birthplace, Great Witley Court, Worcester Porcelain, Morgan Cars, Avoncroft Museum of Buildings and the Severn Valley Steam Railway.

In Warwickshire: The Cotswolds, Warwick Castle, Shakespeares 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.

Acton Beauchamp

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.

“Home from Home”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2013

Katharines Cottage is an excellent choice if you want to be 'away from it all' but, also within easy reach of Worcester. On the borders of Worcestershire and Herefordshire, this cottage is central for a holiday that will please both country-lovers and city-lovers alike. The cottage itself is very well equipped, with almost everything you could want - the only problem we found, was the very weak wi-fi signal, meaning we had to take our laptop into the kitchen in order to get online! Other than that, would thoroughly recommend.
