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. 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.

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.

Owners very friendly and helpful. Nicely located cottage for our stay. Pleasant to just sit out in the grounds.

Mr Phillips, Crowthorne, March 2014

We enjoyed the farmyard setting and appearance of the cottages, and the resident ducks. It was a good base for visiting National Trust properties and surrounding areas such as Hereford and Worcester.

Mrs Collins, London, March 2014

We liked the peaceful location, we could relax and unwind.

Mr Wright, Liphook, January 2014

One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.
