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, enjoy a BBQ, or stroll around the owners’ two acre woodland, a perfect place for a brisk walk. 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.

About the location

Ridgeway Cross

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.

Beautiful building in lovely surroundings.

Miss Stass, Henley-in-Arden, February 2014

The cottage was lovely, and the hosts had put the heating on prior to our arrival so when we got there, it was warm and cosy! Lovely cottage and lovely hosts.

Ms Prince, Cambridge, November 2013

One of the best properties we have stayed in. Considerable thought given to layout. The property was very clean.

Mr Broom, Colchester, October 2013

The property is in a superb location, and we had a good week's break. The heating was fantastic, and the beds very comfortable. All in all the proprietors have done a fantastic job of furnishing the cottage. If we are ever in the area again we would certainly stay there, and will enthusiastically recommend to friends and family alike.

Mrs Foote, Waterlooville, October 2013

The cottage was fabulous, clean, fully equipped and could not fault it.

Mrs Free, Attleborough, August 2013

We had a wonderful stay .The house was very spacious and comfortable. We loved the other houses on the grounds and all in all it was very picturesque and relaxing. The owners who live on the grounds were extremely welcoming and helpful at all times. I would love to go back.

Mrs Mozley, Barcelona, July 2013

Nice quiet location close to Malvern and many interesting villages and towns. The ducks were charming toddling around en mass. All in all a nice chilled break. The weather was also the best so far this year.

Mrs Akam, Nantwich, May 2013

The accommodation was excellent, our hosts were friendly. The accommodation ticked all the necessary boxes. Being able to observe the Indian Running Ducks in the communal yard and around the pond area was an additional bonus. Overall we were very happy with our stay.

Mr Loader, Ipswich, May 2013

The setting was lovely - it was great to wake up to the ducks & geese in the duckpond each morning. The cottage itself was perfect, with everything provided you could possibly want, plenty of it, and stored in a logical way. I loved the quirkiness of the upside-down layout. As it was February and a cottage, I was also impressed at how warm it always was. It was nice to come back to after being outside in the cold. The literature provided in the information room about the area was very thoughtful, as were the suggested walks in the welcome folder.

Mr Fletcher, Evesham, January 2013

The cottage was lovely and warm throughout, very characterful. The owners were brilliant hosts, nothing was any trouble, they even fixed up a hose to wash the dogs down!

Mr Davies, Penmaenmawr, December 2012
