Stunning Cottage With Beautiful Valley Views Overlooking The Malvern Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at the barn as we toured Herefordshire's cideries. Debbie gave us a warm welcome, walked us through the cottage and was helpful whenever we had a question. The barn is stylish, comfortable, sparkling clean with every convenience a couple could wish for, all the comforts of home. The location is peaceful, on the rise of a hill overlooking a lush valley studded with large oak trees.

The barn was perfect for Herefordshire cidery visits. Our favorites were Oliver's and Gregg's Pitt both a short drive away. The Three Counties Cider shop in Ledbury is also worth a stop. If you decide to cook in the well appointed kitchen, the Butchery in Cradley is a friendly spot with quality meat.

I highly recommend this property.

Many thanks Debbie for the wonderful stay, Mark & Geri

Beautiful, elevated rural setting with stunning views over the Teme valley over towards Malvern.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful barn conversion; the standard of fittings and use of oak throughout exudes quality. Debbie, Tom and the two entertaining sons did their very best to make our stay memorable but kept a respectful distance. Any glitches were quickly sorted and our hosts were clearly very keen to ensure our enjoyment, going the extra yard to make us feel welcome and our custom valued.

The area is beautiful too; my friend and I enjoyed two days excellent fishing on the Teme and we ate in some very fine hostelries (with our wives!).

I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at The excellent Hope Farm!

We had been asked beforehand by Debbie whether we would like Christmas decorations to be put up during our stay. What we didn't expect was a REAL tree, beautifully decorated, and many more festive items placed around the lounge area. The barn was lovely and warm (It was very cold and frosty during our stay) and the view from the window, stunning. This is a working farm but we weren't bothered at all by any noise etc. Roly, our 8 year old labrador, even had his own enclosed garden to potter around in. Everything to make our stay run smoothly had been considered. I'm sure that, if we had had any problems, Debbie would have sorted them out immediately. Needless to say we would recommend this propery to anybody.

Roger and Melanie.

A really stunning cottage in an idyllic location with attention paid to every detail

  • 5 of 5

This is a really beautifully restored cottage ,fully equipped for the most discerning guest,in a gorgeous location with spectacular views of the Malvern Hills.It took us 10 minutes to drive to the Three Counties Showground with no traffic jams! Great Malvern is a fascinating town full of friendly people and of course the walking is wonderful although the wind nearly blew me off the British Camp.Deborah and her family are to be congratulated on a very special property and we would recommend it to anyone.
