    Off the beaten track

    Made enjoyable....The position of the property. It was wonderfully off the beaten track with beautiful views. It was also lovely and warm which is very important.

    Superb location

    The location of the cottage was superb - we were very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy the peace and quiet by sitting outside at the front of the cottage, enjoying our lunch/tea, and looking out over the valley towards the Malvern Hills. It was so relaxing. We had no neighbours and the only sounds we heard as the sun went down behind the hills was the bleating of the lambs. Walking the dog was very pleasurable. The interior of the cottage was very good, spacious and comfortable and there were lots of NT places nearby to visit. We particularly enjoyed Brockhampton Manor and the Weir Garden, both quite intimate properties. There was also very good pub and local community shop nearby.

    Best holiday!

    The holiday we had was the best we have ever experienced in this country, made more so by the Cottage, the location and of course, the fantastic weather and therefore worthy of the highest praise.
