We work hard to provide a friendly and courteous welcome to all our guests and a relaxing and peaceful break in beautiful surroundings. Here there is privacy and space, attention to detail and the sort of comfortable living you would find in a traditional English country home. Owners, Sue and David live on site to welcome you and make you feel at home the moment you arrive.

Many of our guests return often and we are always delighted to see them. This comment by Rosemary and Brian from South Wales sums up what we try to provide. "In over 40 years of self-catering, we have never found better."

Book the two cottages separately or together for a special occasion to arrange an unforgettable treat for your family and friends.

The Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the ideal place to explore Herefordshire, the Cotswolds and the Welsh Marches. Described as the most beautiful county in England, Herefordshire is both unspoilt yet accessible. Near the ancient town of Ledbury, this is the gateway to the heart of England. Within a little over an hour you can be in Bath, Shakespeare country, Wales or Shropshire yet we are only a little over two hours from London and Manchester.
