This charming cottage lies on the entrance drive to the Hanbury estate and has wonderful open views to the Hall. The enclosed garden is laid mainly to lawn, but guests also have access to the lovely parkland, enjoying the comforts of home on this stunning estate.

The elegant Hall, built in 1701, was home to the Vernon family for 250 years, the Hall is the inspiration for Lower Loxley Hall in the Radio 4 series The Archers. Staying at Hanbury Hall provides the perfect location to enjoy the varied countryside on its door step as well as exploring nearby Droitwich Spa and the historical cathedral city of Worcester. The Malvern Hills, the Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon are also all within easy reach.

    Top quality!

    The Lodge at Hanbury Hall has really lived up to our (high!) expectations, which were based on an equally positive experience at Ticknall Lodge/ Calke Abbey last summer. (As a matter of fact we have already booked another 7 days' stay at Mortuary Cottage in Loxhore/Arlington Court in July. ) A bunch of flowers, a welcome card and a tray with tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival makes you feel welcome at once, and everything is really clean, comfortable and top quality (thanks to the caretaker too). Location is wonderful, with great views of the Hall and the park. The flock of sheep and their lambs were the most friendly neighbours we could have imagined. All in all it made for a very enjoyable break far from the madding crowd. Worth every penny! Thanks a lot.

    Exactly what we needed...

    It was exactly what we needed - a few nights away as a family, with some lovely walks to go on, and interesting places to visit. Getting to have an open fire on the go in the evening was a great treat too!

    Made enjoyable....

    The kindness & courtesy of the staff & volunteers we met throughout our holiday ! Mr P. Crowther, the caretaker, was very welcoming & helpful. But our special thanks go to Ms. S. Goodman, who literally went out of her way to help us when we encountered a problem with our car. She provided an example of NT dedication to visitors - & of British civility - over & above the call of duty, which we most appreciated.

    Perfect for a cosy Christmas

    We were welcomed with fresh flowers, a Christmas pudding and chocolates- very nice touches. We were in need of rest and recuperation after a challenging year and The Lodge was perfect for a cosy, warm and very comfortable Christmas with the open fire a huge hit. The weather was wet and windy but access to walks around Hanbury Hall allowed us to enjoy fresh air in a lovely setting. We had all the facilities to produce a full Christmas lunch in front of the fire - sheer bliss!! We know the surrounding area and enjoyed meals at Jinny Ring and Ombersley Golf Club. We would like to give credit to the caretaker for preparing for our arrival and providing a clean, welcoming ambiance
