A gorgeous property in a stunning,private location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as described, in a beautiful setting with lovely views across the lake.The property was very clean on arrival and we loved every room in the house. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and they even provided bird food for us so that we could refill the feeders - so thoughtful! The cottage is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and plenty of radios and instructions were provided for everything in the house, I would highly recommend this property - the cottage is so private and peaceful and we didn't want to leave! The location is great for exploring nearby attractions including Ludlow, Stratford-upon-Avon, Worcerster and we even hired a barge for the day and travelled along the beautiful canals.There are some lovely walks in the area as well with great views of the Malvern Hills. What better way to start a Sunday morning than having croissants and coffee on the terrace overlooking the lake, watching the wildlife and listening to the Church bells ringing - bliss! We would all love to return to this beautiful cottage one day!

Very comfortable house - great location

  • 5 of 5

First thing to note was the booking process itself as Jennifer (the owner) is extremely easy to contact and readily available to help or answer questions.

Arrived on the Saturday to a very warm and welcoming house.

Everything was clean and tidy and prepared for our arrival with the facilities as described.

The cottage itself is in a stunning location, with it's own lake and surrounded by open fields. There is plenty of wildlife to see and feeding the ducks, coots, moorhens and geese on the lake become a regular morning activity for my children who absolutely loved it.

The house itself is a mixture of modern and established and if there is any slight criticism it that's some of the rooms / furniture could possibly do with some updating but honestly, with it's good sized accommodation, lovely big and modern kitchen and log burner, the house really is extremely comfortable and relaxing.

There is a plentiful supply of things to do and see, including a large variety of National Trust and English Heritage properties nearby plus the West Midlands Safari Park (and absolute must!), the Severn Valley Railway and Warwick Castle to name but a few. I guarantee the young and the old alike will have a very enjoyable time.

If you chose to eat out, there are a good number of eat-in and take away restaurants within a short drive (including the best fish & chips we have ever had!) and a variety of large supermarkets in the nearby towns if you chose to cook for yourself.

All in the, the family had a really very enjoyable time and will definitely book again.

Idyllic Location

  • 5 of 5

On arriving at Lady's Field House the sun was shining on the lake and it was reminiscent of a Monet painting. The house is not the most up to date but all the facilities you need for a comfortable relaxing holiday are there. The communication we had with Jennifer was first rate and the booking and administaration was great. It was lovely to see all the wildlife on and around the lake with the ducks and ducklings coming up to the house to feed. This is a house that we would love to return to in the near future. If you are thinking of booking go on you will not be disappointed.

Magical Christmas

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Ladyfield's Cottage was magical to say the least. The second we drove down the lane and viewed the cottage in it's beautiful surroundings we were captivated. The cottage was lovely and toasting on our arrival by the owners, who were always so accommodating and helpful. It had everything and more to sustain our stay comfortably for a week, from obscure kitchen utensils to bird feed! If I was pushed to find a gripe it would be that it lacks a dishwasher, but that's just maybe me wanting to be 100% on holiday!

We have 2 young boys and they absolutely loved going for long walks across the fields amongst the sheep and playing hide & seek in the cottage garden. The local walks are fabulous too, Ludlow with it's Medieval castle is stunning and so is the nearby Gruffalo Trail in the Wyre Forrest.

Thank you Jennifer for sharing your lovely home - and to quote Arnold Swarzenegger..."we'll be back"!
