The property

North Lodge is one of several lodges for the Bromesberrow Estate, at the southern end of the Malvern Hills, where the counties of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire meet.

The Regency cottage orné, with a charming thatched roof and rustic features, occupies a commanding position on the eastern side of Ragged Stone Hill, the last but one of the Malverns.

There are magnificent views across the Severn Vale to the Cotswold Escarpment and Bredon Hill.

Inside, there is a very comfortable sitting room with a log-burner and television.

Leading off the sitting room are two bedrooms, each with their own private shower room.

The larger bedroom, with wonderful leaded windows, has two twin beds (which can be set up as a king) and the smaller bedroom has a double bed.

There is a kitchen with a small fold out table or there is a bigger table in the sitting room.

The kitchen has a washer/dryer and dishwasher.

There is off-road parking for several cars.

Outside, there is a large garden to the rear with a seating area with wonderful views to the East – ideal for a barbecue (disposable barbecues are available at the property for a small charge).

Perhaps the cottage’s best feature is its direct access to the Malvern Hills, parts of which are on the Bromesberrow Estate.

The path onto the Malvern Hills, with their glorious views across the Welsh Marches, hidden lakes and wooded dells, starts directly behind the cottage – no need to drive anywhere!

From there, you can walk the length of the Malverns, via Herefordshire Beacon (with British Camp on top), Worcestershire Beacon and various pubs.

The area around the Malvern Hills has long been associated with art, culture, poetry and music and its remarkable natural beauty has inspired such luminaries as Sir Edward Elgar (who lived at Malvern), Dame Laura Knight (who lived at Colwall) and Rupert Brooke (one of the nearby Dymock Poets).

There are many arts festivals in the area.

Ledbury is perfectly placed for easy access to many tourist attractions, including Eastnor Castle, a 19th century, mock-medieval castle, with interiors by AWN Pugin, who also designed the interior of the Houses of Parliament.

Also nearby is the Wye Valley with wonderful canoeing.

With history, fine views and plenty to do, there is no better place to stay.

North Lodge is perfect for a romantic getaway.

About the location

LEDBURY

Hereford 15 miles.

The ancient market town of Ledbury (4 miles), dating back to 960 AD, nestles under the Malvern Hills east of Hereford, surrounded by unspoilt English countryside. 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, the 17th century Market House in the town centre and The Painted Room, home to 16th century frescoes. Many music, art and food and drink festivals can be enjoyed in the town and the surrounding area throughout the year where samples of local produce can be enjoyed. Nearby is Eastnor Castle, a fine example of a 19th century, mock-medieval castle, and numerous festivals are held in Eastnor Park. Close by is the historic city of Hereford with its 11th century cathedral, world famous Mappi Mundi and Chained Library. Malvern offers guests many lovely walks along the hills, a luxurious spa and for the car enthusiasts the Morgan Motor Company. Guests can also enjoy the local vineyards, travel along the Elgar Route, visit the Black and White villages and enjoy the many outdoor activities available in the Forest of Dean and beautiful Wye Valley. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
