Whitewells Farm Cottages

Situated just 4 miles west of the magnificent Malvern Hills, these three linked Herefordshire holiday cottages are located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amidst ten acres of unspoilt countryside, with far-reaching views to the Malvern Hills beyond. These delightful Herefordshire holiday cottages have been lovingly converted from farm buildings and barns, and are uniquely furnished and decorated, retaining many original features including exposed beams, half-cruck trusses and vaulted ceilings, and are centrally heated using a bio-mass wood boiler. Positioned in a farmyard setting, you are encouraged to use the many seating areas created around the original farm, where you can relax and watch the owners’ ducks on the pond and enjoy a BBQ. Many lovely countryside walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep of these cottages, including the Herefordshire Trail and the Worcestershire Way. The local village of Cradley has a Post Office and general store, and the area offers many National Trust properties, golf courses and horse racing. For the more energetic, outdoor activities can be enjoyed in the Forest of Dean and the beautiful Wye Valley. These Herefordshire holiday cottages offer something for everyone at any time of year.

    • “Clean, cosy, friendly and most importantly they allow dogs”

    • “Excellently placed for exploring some really beautiful countryside. Shopping wise Malvern, Hereford and Worcester are within easy travelling distance and in addition offer ineresting architecture and places to visit. My stay was for two months due to certain circumstances and although January and February were more wet than cold. The biomass boiler that heats the cottages would certainly see you through the coldest winter. Who needs a log fire :) !?”

The finish & attention to detail was just right, it was well equipped & close to lovely walks & towns. The weather wasn't brilliant but we still got out & about, had a lovely walk up the Malvern Hills with spectacular views. We will go back again sometime 7 would certainly recommend it to others. Thank you great value too Jane & Ady”

    • “We stayed there with our dog at the end of Sept beginning of October 12. The cottage was a real home from home. The beds were comfortable with a choice of pillows (which to me is important) There were the essentials provided and everything was spotless. The only drawback for me was the road noise early in the morning. This was due - in part to the cider apple picking and transportation. Apart from that this was a first class cottage. I would stay again as it is situated within reach of so many lovely places.”

    • “Our hosts were welcoming and generous. The cottage was beautifully furnished and well equipped. It was close to a town and there were plenty of pubs and places to eat ( including the owners pub which was very good!)and lots of places to visit. It was nice to have such a lovely setting for our week away and to be able to take our much loved Irish Setter with us and not have to put him in kennels, there was plenty of room for him to run around in the owners fields and woodlands.”

    Mrs Kicinski, Dursley, October 2014

    • “A warm welcome from the owners, the cottage was very clean and had 24 hour heating with piping hot water whenever needed. Although the cottage had no private garden there was plenty of seating around the duck pond with good views of the countryside, the ducks kept us very entertained with their antics!”

    Mrs Townley, Blackburn, May 2014

About the location


Great Malvern 5 miles; Ledbury 8 miles; Worcester 12 miles; Hereford 15 miles; Ludlow 29 miles.

The picturesque hamlet of Ridgeway Cross lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with far reaching views to the Malvern Hills and has the added benefit of an award winning pub just a short drive away. The Malvern Hills, a 9 mile range of ancient rock, offers visitors 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways, natural springs and amazing views in all directions. The town of Malvern, which dates back to the Bronze Age, holds regular antique fairs and auctions, farmers’ markets, WI country markets and the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Close by is the riverside town of Ludlow, famous for its many black and white timbered buildings including Ledbury Park which is believed to be one of the finest in England, a 17th century Market House and The Painted Room, home to 16th century frescoes. Guests can also enjoy the numerous food, drink and arts festivals held in and around the town as well as Eastnor Castle, a mock 19th century castle, home to The Big Chill Music Festival. The historic city of Hereford with its 11th century cathedral, world famous Mappi Mundi and Chained Library is well worth a visit as well as the local vineyards, the picturesque Elgar Route, numerous Black and White villages and the many outdoor activities available in the Forest of Dean and beautiful Wye Valley. A superb holiday destination at any time of year.
