  • "My husband and I had a lovely stay at the old post office barn."

    Cottage has everything you need and is spotless clean. A perfect relaxing stay after a busy few weeks a work. Elliane and Mark are great hosts, really welcoming and on hand if you need them but also respectful of your privacy. Arrived to a great welcome pack, best we have ever had. Will definitely be returning and have recommended the cottage to friends and family.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Old Post Office Barn, which was very cosy and comfortable."

    Everything we could require was there, with the possible absence of a colander, but the generous provisions left for us were were exceptional. The hosts Mark and Ellaine were very friendly and accommodating and couldn’t do enough to help us without being intrusive. In short, the Old Post Office Barn was top drawer and highly recommended.

  • "Fantastic property, spotlessly clean and with all the facilities you would want."

    The owners were helpful, pleasant and made the stay memorable. The welcome pack was the best we have had and the information folders on the facilities at the cottage and the local area were invaluable.

  • "The property was absolutely stunning."

    The owners have put a lot of thought into the renovation, the only downside was the leather settee, as the weather is getting cooler it wasn't the cosiest to sit on. We took some throws with us so we put those onto settee before sitting down. The welcome pack is a lovely touch. The owners are on hand for anything you may need (everything we could have wanted was provided so we didn't need to call on them)

    Dear Alana, Thank you so much for your generous feedback. We have taken your comments on board concerning the leather sofa and the new plush throws are now in situ. Property Owner

    The accommodation is so well equipped, beautifully renovated with a gorgeous sunny and private garden to relax in. Fixtures and fittings all great, we had no issues with anything. Hosts Mark and Ellaine were helpful and informative if we needed advice on places to visit but not intrusive. Cannot fault accommodation and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit this area. Lots of places to visit and a lovely Common walkable from door with access to the Malvern Hills close by. Thanks for a great stay, we will be back!

About the location


Malvern 5 miles; Worcester 13.5 miles; Gloucester 17 miles

The thriving village of Welland lies south east of the magnificent Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, with a Post Office, village shop and its very own family-run vineyard, producing award-winning wines which can be purchased directly from the owners. 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.
