  • "The location and the stite is beautiful."

    Having The Duke of York pub was fantastic. Unfortunately the lodge itself is very tired. Dripping tap in the kitchen, which was annoying. The bed wasn't great. The pillows had a nasty smell and the duvet is very lumpy and needs replacing. The oven is dirty. The TV electric's to the mains were taped up.

  • "The site was well maintained and peaceful."

    Lodge overall was as described and in reasonably good order, however the kitchen tap dripped badly all the time, and definately short on Cutlery and china, good heating and hot water. We spent a pleasant week here.

We do leave our numbers in the Lodge for you to ring us if there is anything you are not happy about Jim would of popped down and fixed the tap if you had rung. Many thanks Davina Property Owner

  • "The lodge was all we required,it had all the comfort needs for a restful stay."

    there was the plus of having a pub serving decent meals a few steps away which was dog friendly, the only problem for us was that busy holiday period,that the Malvern hill walks were busy must choose a different date for next trip. otherwise we will recommend this place to stay.

    Thank you for your comments, we hope to see you again Property Owner

  • "Broad Down, is a very comfortable, clean, relaxing, quiet lodge, communication between the owners was excellent, I stayed their with my mum and we both found the beds comfortable."

    The site is also kept very clean and tidy, steps a little slippy in the wet so just be careful in the winter.

  • "A wonderful relaxing break."

    Super accommodation, especially good to have such a large main bedroom with so much more wardrobe space than you would normally get, and a useful ensuite! I would imagine the washer/dryer is a great bonus if you have bad weather or are staying for longer. After a previous review I took an extra duvet to boost the mattress as my back isn't great, and it was great. Would say the second bedroom would be snug for an adult but the overall space in the lodge is super. Finally, the enclosed balcony is fantastic especially with a doggy, and impressive to have a further table, chairs and umbrella down on the grass. The site is immaculate!! Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We had an excellent time."

    Broad Down is lovely. We felt relaxed and at home. The camp site was clean and quite. Everyone was friendly. There is a pub at the entrance which is great and the food excellent. The static was very comfortable and we would definitely book again. Surrounding area has some great places to visit and we would recommend Eastnor Castle which is dog friendly to the point of allowing the dog to come into the castle apartments and rooms.

    It was very easy to get to a wide range of places without having to travel on motorways. The pub next door was very welcoming and served excellent food. All the people we met were very friendly and helpful.

    Very comfortable and with all you need on hand. However, one small detail stopped it from being a 5-star holiday. Sadly the beds were rather uncomfortable. Overall, though we would recommend it.

  • "The cooker had to be lit by matches."

    The frying pans need to be replaced as they are no longer non stick and some of the cutlery had not been washed properly. There was a cracked glass that needs to be replaced. I was advised the heating would be on when I arrived at 2.00pm, this was not the case it was cold. I could not get the central heating to work and only had the fire in the lounge for heat. Also I had to clear dog poo from the area near the dustbin. Otherwise the park was well kept and very quiet. I have stayed in Sykes cottages five times and this is the first time I have had to make any adverse comments. Kathleen Regan

BERROW

Ledbury 7 miles; Tewkesbury 7.4 miles; Malvern 9 miles; Cheltenham 16 miles; Ross-on-Wye 16.7 miles.

The scattered village of Berrow lies in beautiful Worcestershire countryside, close to the border with Herefordshire and Gloucestershire and just over half a mile from beautiful common land that adjoins the southern end of the Malvern Hills. The village offers many lovely walks, cycle routes and bridleways, as well as a village pub. Close by Pendock boasts a well-stocked village shop, a stunning Grade I listed church, and earthworks from a village dating back to medieval times. Nearby Ledbury lies on the River Leadon and is famous for its numerous timbered buildings, including Ledbury Park, believed to be one the finest Black and White buildings in England, as well as the 17th century Market House in the town centre and The Painted Room, home to 16th century frescoes. Nearby is Eastnor Castle, a fine example of a mock-19th century castle. Tewkesbury is only seven miles away which banks the rivers Avon and Severn and boasts a stunning cathedral and many amenities and shops. The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. The Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. In the historic waterfront city of Gloucester you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a magnificent Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films) rubbing shoulders with a bustling city centre boasting an incredible range of shops, markets, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions. The delightful regency spa town of Cheltenham, with its historic Georgian architecture and incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions, as well as numerous festivals, including the famous Gold Cup horseracing meeting, is just a short drive away.
