  • "My family really enjoyed our stay at The Old Cider House, a quirky and very cosy property that was just what we like."

    Very clean and decorated/equipped to a very high standard; two lovely bathrooms, three cosy bedrooms with very comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and utility rooms with everything you could need, aga oven, microwave, air fryer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.The lounge had a log burner and reclining sofas! John the owner came round on day two to introduce himself and check that everything was ok. He even lit the log-fired hot tub for us, which was a nice touch. The area itself was lovely too and we had a few trips out to discover new places. All in all, really enjoyed it and would book again!

    Thank you very much for your positive feedback Simon. I’m pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at The Old Cider House. Kind regards John Property Owner

  • "A wonderful find, everything done to a very high standard, very comfortable."

    The hot tub took a bit of getting used to with the wood burner. John the host was on hand to answer any questions. Great location with lots of options for walks, towns etc. Highly recommend the local pub for an evening meal

    Thank you for the good review Karon. I’m pleased you all enjoyed your stay at The Old Cider House. Kind regards John Property Owner

  • "We were fortunate to meet John the owner as we were a little bit early."

    John could not have been more welcoming, showed us around the cottage. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard. Very comfortable, set in a fantastic location, we were sad to leave. It was a pleasure being John's first guests at the cottage.

    Dear Nigel and Jayne Thank you so much for the lovely review of The Old Cider House. Kind Regards John Property Owner

The property

The Old Cider House, a tasteful, detached cottage rests in the charming countryside village of Hanley Swan in Worcestershire.

With the luxury of a wood fired hot tub and private driveway parking, The Old Cider House invites family, friends and a furry companion making it ideal for a rural escape.

Step inside the beautifully-presented abode, where you will be greeted by the warmth of the fire, as you cosy up with your loved ones for a movie night, or have a games night around the dining table, while the fully-equipped kitchen provides space to cook some hearty meals for the family.

After a long day of adventures, head through to the dining room to relax and read through some of the books before catching your night’s rest in one of the three bedrooms.

The luxurious shower room and stylish en-suite bathroom offer plenty of space to get ready for the day with quality tiling and fixtures, whether you rinse off under the rainfall shower or soak away the day in the P-shaped bath, beautifully designed with wave-stone tiles encompassing it.

Step outside to the enclosed garden, where you can indulge in a dip in the hot tub or enjoy a glass of bubbles while looking out over the panoramic views of the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering a serene spot to appreciate the tranquil surroundings of the woodlands and listening to the relaxing stream.

Enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the garden or venture a little further through the gate and over the bridge into the woodland area to have an alfresco picnic in the covered seating pavilion, or simply enjoy a morning coffee surrounded by nature.

If you don’t fancy cooking, take a short drive to The Swan Inn, The Inn at Welland, and The Plough and Harrow, all worth a visit for your evening meal or tipple.

Just a short drive away you'll find the historic market town of Ledbury, renowned for its black and white timbered buildings, independent shops, and bustling market square.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit Worcester, with its stunning cathedral, beautiful riverside walks, and an array of shops and restaurants.

Malvern, home of Malvern Spring Water, is a must-see hotspot, whilst staying at the cottage, with the famous Malvern Hills AONB for avid walkers and explorers and Malvern Theatres for any aspiring thespians and lovers of live shows, this Victorian spa town will not leave you short of adventures.

Further afield, you can explore the picture-postcard town of Cheltenham, known for its popular racing days, striking architecture, and proximity to a wealth of natural beauty.

Enjoy all of this and more by booking The Old Cider House.
