  • "Our second visit to this stunning little property."

    Caroline and Keith are fabulous hosts who have made this lovely place like a home from home with lots of lovely touches and a fabulous welcome box with fabulous homemade and homegrown treats. Nothing is too much trouble and you're very sure of really warm welcome. So much so that we're heading back just after Christmas!

    A real joy to see you both again Des and Julie, and we were so pleased the weather was kind to you and you managed to fit everything in. Thanks once again for leaving the lodge in immaculate condition and for the wonderful feedback xx Property Owner

  • "Little Magnolia is a lovely clean, comfortable, well-equipped lodge in a pretty, quiet location with great views over the surrounding countryside (enhanced by the large feature windows)."

    A great base for exploring the Malverns, the Cotswolds and the many attractions of this lovely part of the country. Caroline and Keith were the perfect, friendly hosts, and the tasty welcome pack was kindly adapted to take account of food allergies. We particularly enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels in the garden and the amusing antics of the bullocks that were (safely) in the field behind during our visit. Definitely one of the very best places we have stayed in - can unreservedly recommend and would love to return some time.

    Thank you Graham for the positive feedback for which we are most grateful. We are so pleased you had a great stay. You were wonderful guests and we would love to see you both again if ever you were in the area. Property Owner

  • "Caroline and Keith are the perfect hosts, they give you so much privacy, while always being on hand if you need anything at all no matter how small."

    The lodge is kitted out with everything you could ever need, and is furnished to such a high quality. We loved seeing the cows everyday and sitting outside on the beautiful patio watching the sunset and then the beautiful stars. The welcome hamper is a lovely touch, with super delicious local treats and home made items. This little slice of paradise is not to be missed, and we will definitely be back, maybe even as a married couple as we got engaged in the garden during our stay. A special place all round for sure, only sad we had to leave!

    Dear Em and Stew, it was such an honour to know that Little Magnolia hosted such a special occasion for you . Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for the lovely feedback. We would love to see you return as Mr and Mrs and further your enjoyment of our haven and all that the area offers. Happy wedding planning ! xx Property Owner

    Caroline and Keith are the perfect hosts and warmly welcomed us on arrival, the welcome pack of home made and local produce was the best we've experienced. If you like peace and quiet interrupted only by beautiful birdsong, relaxing views across the adjoining field to a copse that is home to various wildlife and a very comfortable place to stay THIS IS IT! Whilst there we visited numerous national trust places and ate out often in the great pubs and restaurants all within easy reach. To sum up we loved it and we're sure you will too. Barry & Heather

    A lovely friendly greeting from Caroline, the owner, who was a fountain of local knowledge regarding places to visit, directions etc. The property had everything you could need, including binoculars to watch the birds on the feeder just outside the large picture window which also had stunning views over the fields with the Malvern hills in the distance. Lovely places to visit in close proximity such as Symonds Yat, Malvern, Ledbury and of course Upton. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

  • "The property was absolutely outstanding and well deserved 5 stars."

    It was extremely comfortable and relaxing. The views from the huge windows were of arable fields and a copse, but were mesmerising as there were many different wild birds. There was also a bird feeder in the garden and watching the antics of the birds and squirells was very entertaining. Little Magnolia was spotlessly clean, but the best thing was the owners, Caroline and Keith who couldn't have been more welcoming. The welcome hamper, mostly homemade was absolutely delicious!! We have been using Sykes for over 20 years and this is undoubtedly the best property to date! Thank you once again Caroline and Keith, we had a fantastic week and will return. Danny and Jackie

    Thank you so much Danny and Jackie, for the wonderful and much appreciated positive feedback.

The property

Little Magnolia is located on the outskirts of Upton Upon Severn in the Worcestershire countryside.

This cedar-built lodge offers a romantic break for a couple, with a garden to dine alfresco whilst enjoying the views of the rolling Malvern Hills.

A private lane will lead you to the property, where you will be greeted by off-road parking to leave your vehicle.

Head inside to find a hallway, with space to hang your jackets and store your boots, ready for when you explore this rural area.

The open-plan living space is showered in natural light from the large windows; here you can unwind with a cup of tea on the sofa and admire the views before you.

Prepare home-cooked meals in the kitchen area, home to an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with an ice box and a dishwasher to do the cleaning up for you.

When stomachs rumble, settle down at the dining table for two, as you tuck-into delicious meals, chat about the highlights of the day so far.

Make use of the coffee station to enjoy a frothy coffee and venture outside onto the swing chair to savour the tranquil setting with a good book.

A charcoal barbecue offers alternative cooking arrangements for when the sun is shining; afterwards, snuggle up on the sofa and flicker through the options on the Smart TV.

When eyes tire, prepare for bed in the bathroom with a soak in the deep bathtub or rinse the day away in the walk-in shower.

A super-king-size bed awaits, so why not get tucked in with a hot chocolate and watch the Smart TV.

In the morning, slip on a robe before enjoying a cup of tea outside on the patio while breathing in the fresh air.

A short stroll will lead you to The Drum & Monkey, where you can unwind with a chilled pint or for a greater selection of bars and eateries, head into the town of Upton Upon Severn.

The pretty town of Upton Upon Severn is situated on the River Severn and is known for its annual music festival.

The town has several attractions, including Dunstall Castle, The Tudor House Museum, and Pundits Fusion, a restaurant and bar.

Visit the charming city of Worcester, which offers plenty of attractions to keep visitors entertained.

The Worcester Cathedral is a beautiful example of Gothic architecture, while the Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum houses a range of art and historical exhibits.

Also within easy reach, is the town of Cheltenham, home to the beautiful Imperial Gardens and the more adventurous Hatherley Park, as well as Cheltenham racecourse for the chance to get glam.

For a romantic break with your other half, choose Little Magnolia.

About the location


Worcester 12 miles; Great Malvern 6 miles; Tewkesbury 6 miles; Cheltenham 18 miles.

The pretty country 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', along with traditional inns, cafes, restaurants 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 thriving small town has its own marina, a vineyard and 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'. Just 6 miles away is the beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern, and the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills offer 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways, and form a 9 mile range of ancient rock. The Great Malvern Food Festival in June is well worth a visit, as are the many events at the Three Counties Show Ground and the Malvern Theatre, which welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. There are many National Trust properties, vineyards and gardens in the area, as well as outdoor activities to suit all abilities. The nearby market towns such as Ledbury and Tewkesbury have a wealth of black-and-white houses and inns. A little further afield is the Royal Forest of Dean, the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, the spa town of Cheltenham, and the unspoilt towns and villages of the Cotswolds.
