South-facing, Daubentons overlooks field and woodland with views towards Ledbury and the Malvern Hills. Converted from a hop barn and two hop kilns, it provides living and kitchen accommodation upstairs to make the most of the lovely views, with four double bedrooms downstairs. The partially glazed roof allows light to flood into the high-ceilinged dining and sitting area which leads onto a tiled balcony overlooking the formal part of the garden, with field and woodland beyond. In winter, the open fire provides a wonderful focal point. The space is large enough to host a great party.
The oak staircase, limestone fireplace, Aga and en-suite bedrooms testify to the care and attention which has been taken in this conversion.

There are interesting stories to learn about the Croft family, for example, how they sold the castle in the C18th and then bought it back again in the early C20th. Now looked after by the National [...]
The National Trust is organising bluebell walks at Croft Castle and parkland in the north of the county. This is the time of year to see the unmistakeably English sight of a woodland scene carpeted with the delicately nodding heads of the English bluebell rather than its more showy Spanish cousin. As they are associated with [...]
Westons Cider is just a few minutes drive from here and has been making cider for over 130 years. The managing director is the great great grand-daughter of the founder. The company makes ciders and perry from cloudy scrumpy to organic and sparkling vintages, but you will also find a Visitors’ Centre with a courtyard [...]
