  • “We believe that Lilac cottage to ...”

    We believe that Lilac cottage to the best cottage that we have ever stayed at, now this is not an easy statement to make or to justify without us first having reviewed all of the places that we have visited over many years. The interior and exterior of the cottage are fresh and very clean and a lot of energy has gone into it, my first reaction when going into the hall was its like a hotel, and each room offers all that you will need for a great stay.

    We believe that Lilac cottage to the best cottage that we have ever stayed at, now this is not an easy statement to make or to justify without us first having reviewed all of the places that we have visited over many years. The interior and exterior of the cottage are fresh and very clean and a lot of energy has gone into it, my first reaction when going into the hall was its like a hotel, and each room offers all that you will need for a great stay. Now the views are beyond description or photograph and must be seen to be believed they are stunning, we estimated that the views across the valley are in the distance of about 25 miles and the sunsets are fantastic. Its been so good to sit outside every day last week, made more comfortable by the outdoor chairs and the benches and tables. I sat outside on 3 evenings watching the stars and a very feint Milky Way form, although not a Dark skies area its very good. As far as access to the Malvern hills is concerned you walk out of the front door or garden gate and you are on them, its as simple as that. We walked into Great Malvern and it took us less than half an hour going but quite a bit longer coming back. The Beacon and Sugar loaf are the nearest hills and the paths are well defined and good. And of course there is the Aga which is a beast of a thing and we wondered if it would be too hot in the kitchen, but it wasn't an issue but we where glad of the microwave. The Aga makes good toast which was the limit of my experience. Oh and there is a Dish washer which isn't mentioned in the description. Lilac cottage is a much loved home and we would love to go back again.
