    The accommodation was very quiet, clean, comfortable and had many thoughtful touches, like fresh flowers and a very generous welcome pack.

It was a very relaxing break and I really miss it now we are back to reality, which is always a bit more challenging. The only tricky bit was reversing to get the car out. Neither of us are very good at that. However, most people would have no trouble at all

    All on one level attached to the owners house and drive. Space for a couple of cars out front and a decent patio with BBQ (not that we used it at this time) Kitchen is very new and had everything you need. Lounge is more traditional and has a modern smart TV. Sofa is a bit old/uncomfortable but could just be me. Bathroom has a power/main shower over old bath. No extractor and is probably next on the owners list to update. Bedroom has decent sized superking bed/twins and a large wardrobe but not much room to move around, especially at night. Mattresses are foam type and seem old and not comfortable, was glad to get out of them at end of week. Has Wifi/Broadband at decent speed as well. Good base for exploring the Malvern's and a nice comfortable place.

The property

A warm and welcoming all-ground-floor secluded black and white cottage sitting within easy walking distance of the slopes of the Malvern Hills, Mortons Cottage is in a prime location for a country retreat in Worcestershire.

Found on the outskirts of Castlemorton, it offers an idyllic location with all you could need within just a short scenic walk or drive away.

Park up right outside the property before venturing inside to find a beautiful holiday home, take a seat on the comfy sofa in the lounge while being surrounded by the characterful charm of original oak beams, a lovely spot to spend a quiet evening in, or head into the well-presented kitchen where there is everything that you need to prepare a meal before sitting down at the dining table or one of the two sets of patio tables and chairs in the front and rear gardens.

Alternatively, there is a barbeque for that alfresco meal making the most of the space and privacy of the rear garden which has the benefit of the sunshine, as well as shade, throughout the day and well into the evening during the summer months.

Mortons Cottage has original exposed beams in every room which is all part of the character of this delightful well-appointed property which manages to combine the period qualities and features whilst also providing all the modern amenities you would expect.

Sitting within the Malvern Hills area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can expect to find a plethora of walking and cycling routes right on your doorstep, or for those feeling more adventurous there are plenty of other outdoor pursuits to take advantage of in the local area.

The nearest pub is less than 200 yards away, and is one of many local country and gastro pubs within a few minutes’ drive from the cottage.

Please remember to bring a torch as being in the country there are no street lights to help you find your way to, and more importantly your way back from the local pub!

There is a village store situated in the neighbouring village of Welland which is one and half miles away – this stocks all basic essentials, fresh bread and pastries daily as well as serving as the local post office.

Castlemorton Common starts less than half a mile away which then opens directly onto the wider expanses of the common and slopes of the Malvern Hills.

The nearest town is Malvern, well worth exploring for its rich history, quaint shops, Morgan Motors and make sure you take in a show at Malvern Theatre which has productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company amongst others.

The Three Counties showground, a short drive away, holds antique fairs, auctions, RHS shows and a variety of other events throughout the year.

Within striking distance of Malvern, Ledbury, Upton-upon-Severn, Ross-on-Wye, Cheltenham, Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.

The Cotswolds are also within easy reach and you could explore the main sites and villages as a day out from Mortons Cottage.

Trains run from the nearby Victorian Great Malvern railway station to Hereford to the South West and Birmingham to the north at regular times throughout the day.

There is also a daily mainline service from Great Malvern into London Paddington.

Mortons Cottage is in an idyllic setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and would be a wonderful choice for your next country escape.

About the location

CASTLEMORTON

Malvern 6 miles; Ledbury 8 miles; Worcester 14.5 miles; Gloucester 16 miles

The delightful village of Castlemorton is situated at the southern end of the famous Malvern Hills, which lie on the boundary between Herefordshire and Worcestershire and are a paradise for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. Boasting a lovely 12th Century Church, the village stands nearly equal distance from the historic towns of Malvern (voted into AOL Travel's 2009 'hottest destinations' list), Ledbury and Tewkesbury, which are home to a wealth of black and white houses, olde worlde inns, restaurants, quality shops and are surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are country houses, gardens, castles, museums, railways and wildlife centres situated within easy reach of the village, while the lovely riverside town of Upton-on-Severn is also nearby, with its lovely inns, marina and river boat cruises. Castlemorton Common provides many lovely walk and cycle rides, part of which is a designated SSSI due to its vast array of wildlife, flora and fauna. The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the hills form a nine mile range of ancient rock, which offers 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways with natural springs and long distance views in all directions. 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. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties and gardens to visit in the area. Malvern has many individual shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants, a luxurious spa, and is also home to the Three Counties Showground. Malvern is the home of the Morgan car, which makes this area popular with enthusiasts. The pretty town of Upton upon Severn lies on the banks of the River Severn and boasts a variety of delightful 17th century buildings and attractive shops, including The Pudding Shop, traditional inns and cafes and its very own museum. It also plays host to many annual festivals, including Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, as well as the Sunshine Music Festival. This small, thriving town has its own marina, a vineyard and a well-stocked farm shop at the local fruit farm, plus the town’s medieval church, which is now a Heritage Centre, is topped by a striking 18th century cupola, known locally as The Pepperpot. The picturesque Forest of Dean, with its range of attractions, is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester and waterfront city of Gloucester are also close by.
