What's so wonderful about a Heart of England cottage is that it's so centrally situated and easy to get to, whether you're planning a week away or a surprise last minute break.
Discover Shropshire and Herefordshire, the border counties of England with Wales. Both have a timeless air about them, with plenty of inviting open green spaces - perfect for enjoying the 'great outdoors' walking, cycling, riding, fishing and so on. You'll find lots of lovely small villages and historic towns, attractions to suit all ages and incredibly good food. From farmers' markets showcasing local delights to gastronomic Michelin-starred restaurants, these two sleepy counties have them all. And don't forget to sample Herefordshire's famous cider, thought to rival the best in the world!
Trace Elgar's footsteps in Worcestershire, renowned for its wealth of beautiful churches and other historic monuments, plus its wide range of annual events and festivals. Discover the beauty of the Malvern Hills AONB, go on safari in the Wyre Forest and learn all about that tongue-tickling, tangy sauce! Or opt for a Heart of England cottage in Gloucestershire, another gloriously green county dotted with idyllic villages, market towns and historic treasures.
And remember, cosmopolitan cities like Birmingham, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all on your doorstep.
