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

The Cider House is in the grounds of Hidelow, 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 it is easily accessible from the motorway, only 1 hour from Birmingham and 2 hours from London and Manchester.

The cottage itself has lovely open views of the surrounding farmland on all sides. It is popular for holidays and short breaks and we would recommend it for a larger group of family or friends.

The cottage is a large, substantial stone and half-timbered building sleeping 10 people in 5 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom or shower room. It is an ancient building, full of character, probably built in the 17th century. All rooms are heavily beamed with ancient timbers, many having interesting carpenter's marks and some which clearly came from an even older building. Now it has all the modern luxuries you would expect in a 5 Star cottage, including WiFi.


The Cider House is suitable for a person with limited mobility (who is weight-bearing but unsteady on their feet, perhaps using a walking aid such as stick, zimmer or walking frame). All ground-floor accommodation except perhaps Bedroom 2 would be accessible to them with no steps or ramps.

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 hot tub with a glass of local brew!

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.

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.
