Description from owner

Description

Mill Cottage is to be found at the end of a quiet winding lane about one mile from the A449 between Worcester and Ombersley and stands adjacent to the water mill which was producing flour for Worcester until the mid 1940s and remains in its original state although is no longer working.

It occupies a beautiful, rural situation between the Droitwich canal and the river Salwarpe and comes with fishing rights just a few short paces from the front door on the river and the mill pond.

If you fancy something a little more strenuous, there are footpaths along the canal to get up close to swans, ducks and waterfowl courting, nesting or tending to their young - depending on the time of year.

And, for those wanting something to get the blood pumping, a plethora of exhilarating walks in the area. There is something for everyone and at any time of the year!

There must be something about Mill Cottage and its location since there are several visitors who have been coming to

There must be something about Mill Cottage and its location since there are several visitors who have been coming to stay every year for almost 20 years!

You can thus have the best of both worlds at Mill Cottage since the many attractions of Worcester are but a few miles away with Malvern, Evesham, Cheltenham and Birmingham within very easy reach to satisfy the shoppers and music, art and theatre lovers amongst you.

“Superb is the only word to describe the cottage”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

This place is the best in every way. Quiet, peaceful and yet near to Worcester. Have stayed here every year for the past three years and will continue to go for the future. The hosts, Val and Bob, are perfect in every way. The gardens surrounding the cottage have to seen to be believed, a river that is by the cottage has ducks, swans and fish, birds of all types visit the property. The cottage is very well equipped, everything is supplied to make your visit very comfortable, a real gem of a place.

Always looking forward to seeing you
