"Lovely property, great size enclosed garden and parking, excellent information book in regards to property guide and surrounding areas."
"We really enjoyed our stay and will recommend to all our friends and family."
The only negative was the lack of a footpath along the main road but, of course, there's not a lot that can be done about that.
"A very well presented and ideal holiday breakaway facility."
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday, thank you very much. We will be actively looking to book another slot at this location sometime next year. Sue & Stu Dando
"Lovely, clean comfortable cosy cottage."
Having 3 dogs we were delighted to see it had as described, a totally secure garden. The road next to the property is busy at the usual rush hour times but we soon got used to it. Ideally situated and plenty of dog walks close by.
"We had the most relaxing holiday."
The cottage is like home from home, very clean and comfortable, settled in immediately. Jessie was there to help but never intruded. Thank you for the welcome pack, much appreciated. Liked it so much booked already for next year.
"Nice cottage great garden for dogs and kids."
"Great property,good location to all points of interest in the area."
Very clean and well looked after throughout property.
"Yew Tree Cottage was PERFECT."
It made a lovely base for walks around the area. The bath was enjoyed and the cottage was equipped with everything we needed. Loved the enclosed garden so we could let our dog out. Would highly recommend.
"Lovely cottage spa bath was amazing!"
Lovely quiet area. On arrival I was greeted by the owner which was a nice touch and found that the basic essentials had been left for us plus a box of chocolates which was lovely and the beds were so comfortable me my daughter and my cousin all had the best weeks sleep we've had in ages gutted I didn't check what brand the mattresses were! Would 100% stay again.
"We have just returned from a week at Yew Tree Cottage."
We honestly cannot recommend this property and its location enough. An absolutely lovely cottage with amazing views across the Malvern Hills. A super area with lots to visit and wonderful scenery. The Cottage: absolutely perfect in every way ... immaculately clean in every room, very comfortable and warm, fabulous jacuzzi bath, jigsaws/books/board games, and a huge selection of DVD's. Wonderful, completely enclosed garden perfect for your dog and a bowl of Bonio biscuits - sadly we had just had to have our baby put to sleep before arriving but she would have loved it and it was the perfectly secure space for dogs, and their humans to enjoy. For the humans - a welcome selection of hot drink sachets, milk, bread, butter: thank you xxx. The Owners: so welcoming and approachable, but never encroached on our stay whatsoever; just knew they were available if we had a problem, which we didn't. I would have absolutely no hesitation at booking this wonderful holiday home again - only wish was that we had booked longer lol !!
"It was a great location for my work at the Cheltenham Festival and ideal for walking the Malvern Hills."
St Wunstans Nature reserve is also a gem. The wi fi connection was almost non-existent, although I appreciate this is a general problem in the area I think a router in the cottage would maybe help, rather than relying on an extension from the main property.
"We had a lovely stay in spite of the weather."
The cottage is very well equipped and warm and cosy. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. The only problem was with the spa bath which when turned on filled the tub with black bits. Not a great problem to us as we are not great bathers and the shower was excellent. The folder of information about dog friendly areas and places to visit was very helpful as we had not visited the Malverns before. We are likely to book a return visit in the future.
"An excellent cosy cottage"
"Excellent for our dogs and a great location."
"Property was as per description, welcome package appreciated, views of the hills amazing, Couple of small issues promptly rectified by the very nice and approachable owners."
Would recommend to anyone.
"Well maintained cottage with added bonus of a safe and secure garden for your dogs."
Although next to a fast road it wasn't busy and didn't disturb us at all. Just a short distance from the hills in fact you can see them from your bedroom window. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
"Lovely cottage in a great location."
Lack of Internet is a pain otherwise excellent facilities. The garden was perfect for the dogs.
"Lovely cottage in a great location."
Future guests should know that they have to strip their own beds and clean and vaccum the cottage before leaving.
"Fabulous little dog friendly cottage in an idyllic position near the Malvern Hills."
Large garden for the dogs and well equipped property. Lovely welcoming and helpful owners. Highly recommended.
"The property was well equipped, clean and comfortable."
The large enclosed garden was a real bonus for our dogs. The welcome pack was very nice too. It might be useful to mention in future that the cottage has very low doors. My husband is 6ft 6 and spent the week having to duck! One small criticism, a smelly damp mop and bucket was left in the porch which wasn't very pleasant. Internet was very poor.
"Excellent in every way plus beautiful views all around."
Lovely owner and kind gift of groceries.
"The cottage was as described and we very much appreciated the welcome pack."
Biscuits for the dogs was a nice touch. They we in their element, having the run of the fully enclosed Garden. The cottage was ideally placed to explore Malvern and the surrounding area. We found many dog friendly pubs and everyone was very welcoming.
"I would recommend this property at yew tree cottage to anyone who like comfort and staying in beautiful sunshine."
The owners are living very close the the cottage but are not intrusive though will always be available if required. The cottage was very good clean comfortable with good amenities. The little touches offered by the owners milk and bread and butter plus beverage waiting on arrival if required all in sll a great cottage with a space outside for the dogs to play. Great area for walking with some interesting places to visit in the locality
"Absolutely lovely cottage with views over countryside and the Malvern Hills."
Excellent non intrusive hosts who have gone the extra mile to provide a lovely comfortable environment for people to rest and relax. Fantastic welcome pack, Amazing beds, superb enclosed wrap around large private garden for people and dogs. To enjoy. We honestly cannot fault this cottage, it was one of the best and we have stayed in many over the past twenty years, We took 4 dogs with us, all dogs had ample space and comfort, the cottage was nice and warm and basically is a nice upmarket home from home. Nice and secure for dogs and we didn’t have a problem opening and shutting the gate to the property in fact we found the extra layer of security most welcome. The owners do live on site in a separate gated area but they are discreet and respectful of privacy and certainly did not encroach in any way. Thank you, we will be back . Rosemary and Con x
"I stayed for 4 weeks, on my own with two dogs."
I cannot fault the facilities but I constantly felt on edge. The sound insulation from next door is virtually non existent. I was tip toeing round. The accommodation is listed as pet friendly, but the layout didn't work for me. I hadn't realised the owners lived on site and had I known, for a 4 week stay, this was intrusive and not deliberate on the owners' part. Having to get my dogs in the car, open the main gate, shut it again behind me, became an inconvenience. Also sending texts to the owner and not having the courtesy of an acknowledgement, made me feel I had chosen the wrong place to stay. Lovely cottage but only condusive for a short stay.
We sincerely apologise you felt this way whilst you stayed with us, we always respect our guests privacy and we are always on hand if needed. I honestly thought that we did our very best to accommodate any requirements or needs you had, such as repairing the damage caused by your dogs or when you locked yourself out of the house, had we not been on site this would have been problematic. The main gate is there as we are a dog friendly property and it would be our worst nightmare should a dog or child get out from a car and get out and run onto the road, I am aware you struggled with your dogs whilst here however this was a dog behavioural issue as they were constantly out of control rather than something we could help with. The damage left to bedlinen and mess across the house was quite unbelievable and we decided not to charge you any extra or take this out of your deposit, despite the linen having to be put in the bin. I do wonder if maybe I didn't receive some messages sent by you for some reason, as I came to meet you at departure to wish you goodbye and safe journey home as you had been here for a long time, yet you had already left. Property Owner
"On arrival the cottage was warm and welcoming with a couple of lights on and the heating too."
The owners and their children were friendly and on the end of a phone for any queries and happy to wave as they/we came and went from the property. Lovely spacious bedrooms and beautifully comfortable beds/bedding. Great spa bath and overhead shower and fully equipped kitchen. The lounge was cosy, but, like I find in most holiday lets, the sofas are ready to be replaced. However, this fact did not spoil our stay. The cottage is in a lovely situation, below the Malvern ridge so don’t expect brilliant WiFi connection. I would recommend this cottage.
Great location. Easy access to local sites Malvern Hills is a must. Local pub was a 5 minute walk and served superb food. The Indian platter was particularly favourite of ours. Thanks to Jess and Stuart were extremely helpful when we needed anything. There was a welcome pack of milk, butter, jam and bread and a jar of biscuits for the dogs too which they loved. Would definitely recommend Yew Tree cottage and we hope we can visit again in the future
"Absolutely wonderful place to go on holiday!"
The cottage had everything we needed and was beautiful. The paddock was incredible for our three dogs and very well enclosed. The cottage is in an amazing location, so close to all the places we wanted to visit and so close to beautiful dog walks up on the hills. The owners were perfect - there if we needed them but very much left us to get on with it. The cottage was so clean and obviously a lot of effort has been made to make it covid safe too. We had so much fun using the croquet game in he paddock too! I really could not recommend this place highly enough. Fantastic holiday. Thank you!
"If you could make guests aware that the cottage is placed next to a main A road in the initial description information details."
The road isn’t very busy but vehicles do drive past the cottage at speed and there is more traffic apparent at peak hour times.
"The cottage was absolutely perfect, very cosy, everything you could possible need for a relaxing break."
The garden was huge and great for our little dog Charlie. Jess was on hand if you needed anything, but left us alone. We would definitely go back to Yew Tree Cottage we had some lovely walks on the Malvern hills.
"In the past I have been to houses who say they have an enclosed garden for dogs when it has been anything but, this garden was fantastic and totally safe."
Also the cottage felt very Covid safe which was really reassuring. Definitely want to come again sometime.
"We had a lovely stay at Yew Tree cottage."
It is a comfortable and well equipped property which the owners have maintained very well. Jess & her husband the owners werevery welcoming and had gone to great lengths with cleaning and preparations to make us feel safe particularly during these uncertain covid times. We are very appreciative of the great efforts that she had made in this regard which gave us great peace of mind. The cottage makes an ideal base for those who want to walk in the Malvern Hills as it is only a short 10 minute drive from British Camp and a number of other parking/walking areas. We had a lovely time. Recommended.
"Beautiful location, clean cottage"
"Lovey cottage well situated for walks on the Malvern Hills."
Well equipped kitchen, the bedrooms are roomy, the bathroom is huge and the shower is amazing! Well enclosed garden for the dogs, the owners are nearby for help with any queries, close to the road but traffic not a problem. We will definitely be going back.

"We really enjoyed staying this place."
Everything worked well and landlady was very friendly and helpful. We want to get there back soon! Our warmest recommendation!
"Fabulous accommodation plus very large enclosed safe garden for our Deerhound to run."
Lovely welcome gifts from Stuart & Jess including big jar of biscuits for our dog. Great location, quiet considering it is on a busy road. Hardly heard the traffic.
"Lovely cottage beautifully presented and ideally situated in lovely countryside."
Owners Stuart and Jess very friendly and welcoming, we had two minor problems and these were sorted very promptly. Our Labrador loved the extensive enclosed grounds and a short 10 minute walk to the local pub ( as we did ! ) Only facility we would have liked is a downstairs loo - being slightly arthritic o a p s but overall loved it and will definitely look to return.
"This was our second stay at yew tree cottage and once again we could not fault our stay."
So cosy and comfy .the dogs love the large garden which is safe and secure .Jess and Stuart are so friendly and helpful with local walks and places to visit .the welcome pack was much apprisiated,all in all a very restful week can't wait to book for next year
"Beautiful cottage with views over the Mendip hills, can’t wait to go back"
"Fantastic cottage that had everything we needed."
The large, secure garden was great for the dogs. The cottage is in a superb location for exploring the Malvern Hills with walks straight from the door. The owners are extremely helpful. Lovely welcome pack which included treats for the dogs. We will definitely return!
"This cottage was by far the best one so far all our needs catered for Lovely ..."
This cottage was by far the best one so far all our needs catered for Lovely hosts, beautiful grounds I can’t praise it enough Very peaceful and quiet Everything you need in a holiday it’s got it
"The cottage was nicely situated at the base of the Malvern Hills."
Facilities was high spect with a large enclosed garden and ample parking. Quiet location for a rexlaxing time. Ideal for visting places like Great Malvern, Stratford upon Avon, Tewkesbury and Cotswolds. Owners provided a nice welcome. Highly recommend this place for an holiday.
"Loved our week in Yew Tree Cottage ."
Our 4 Standard Poodles adored the safe private side garden. Added security of the gated safe courtyard beyond the garden too. Beautiful bathroom and bedrooms. Wifi and large screen tv too. Cleanest cottage we have ever stayed in. Cant recommend it enough. You have a wonderful cottage Jess thank you both so much x
"Fantastic cottage in a lovely quiet location."
Facilities great and the dog loved the large garden to run around. Would highly recommend this cottage
"This was our third visit to Yew Tree Cottage and we enjoyed it just as much as the 1st."
It is in an excellent position for a quick drive to the hills. Having three dogs means we sometimes feel we have to compromise on holiday houses, but not here. It is a very cosy cottage with everything you might need for your stay. The garden is large and fully secure. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is a delight. Everything is very clean and welcoming. I'm sure we will be returning.
"Yew Tree Cottage was lovely, it was in a great spot, was warm, cosy and inviting and we were made to feel really welcome."
Little touches like bread, milk, butter, jam, dog treats etc on arrival were a great and unexpected addition and we look forward to staying there again
"Another excellent week at Yew Tree Cottage"
"We had a wonderful 1 month in Yew Tree Cottage."
Jess and Stuart were the perfect hosts and helped us in every way. I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the Malvern area. The cottage and the garden were fantastic and it was lovely and clean and cozy and very well organized, taking care of all our and our children’s needs Thank you Jess and Stuart
"Lovely little cottage, had a lovely new year."

"A very comfortable, well presented house that is ideal if you take a dog as we did - both indoor and outdoor."
The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The area is superb - many beautiful walks, Ledbury, not far at all, is well worth a visit and we were ideally situated for the Three Counties Showground.

..exceptionally generous welcome pack including dog biscuits, the garden was safe, huge and a real treat for the dogs. Lots of dog friendly things to do in the area including Eastnor Castle ..a must! Excellent local handy shop in Welland Big thanks for the fan, most thoughtful as badly needed with the heat wave ...loved the juccuzi bath !! Many thanks to the owners.
"Great little Cottage in a nice place."
Very grateful for the welcome pack of bread, milk, tea coffee and jam after a long car journey. Sykes also arranged with the owners that we could take an extra dog, which saved us a headache of having to put her in kennels. Nice little side garden to exercise dogs. Plenty of local walks, Ledbury a nice town not too far, also Worcester in reasonable distance, lovely Cathedral worth the visit. Would certainly go back to this cottage, very clean and well kept. Thank you, Trevor and Lynn
"We had a wonderful holiday."
Yew Tree Cottage is very well appointed, it had everything we needed including a washing machine/tumble dryer and dishwasher, which my husband was extremely grateful for! The self-contained garden is huge and Alfie and Megan (our dogs) loved it. The garden is safe and secure. The owners Stuart and Jess, are lovely, they do not intrude but are always willing to stop and talk and were keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The area is picturesque with lots of interesting towns and villages within a short drive. If you are a walker then the Malvern hills are ideal with lots of flatter walks around. Yew Tree Cottage is on the border of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, with cities like Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester within easy reach. We will definitely be returning.
"A wonderful cottage in a stunning location."
One slight downside is fast, busy road nearby. Cottage owners lovely people and hugely helpful. Local pub- The Marlbank- outstanding. Seriously dog friendly with terrific food at good prices and excellent beer.
"Jess was very helpful and came out to meet us on road when we were rubbish at following directions!"
Great pub 5 mins along road that does nice food and is dog friendly, and the cottage is at the foot of the hills, so very handy for walks. Lovely cosy clean cottage. Kids particularly loved the jacuzzi bath!
"The only reason I would not re-book this property is because I never re-visit an area."
I would certainly recommend it to anyone else though.
"Property run by very nice people who live on site."
Location was excellent for touring around the area, would certainly recommend to friends.
"Ideal location and helpful friendly owners who did not interfere with their guests."
Cottage was on a busy road and there was road noise but this did not detract from our enjoyment at all. Lounge and kitchen were quite small but both double bedrooms were adequate. Bathroom was large and tastefully decorated. The large garden was a real bonus for children and dogs. The Malverns are beautiful and we enjoyed a week of walking the hills and discovering the local history, we would love to return in the future.
"My wife and I have just returned from a weeks holiday in the Malvern's where our focus was walking in the hills with our small border terrier."
The cottage location was great and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. There were a number of car parks just a short drive away giving varied direct access points to the hills. The dog friendly pub down the road was just a short walk away and was great for drinks and food in the evening. The cottage was really clean, comfortable and well appointed, particularly the master bedroom and bathroom. The view of the hills from the bedroom is lovely. The owners live onsite and were very friendly and helpful. It was therefore quite easy to get our holiday up and running quickly with all the information we needed close at hand.
"The cottage was exceptional."
The location was great, short walk to local pub and short walk / drive to local and varied walks with our dogs. Welcome of bread, milk, butter and lovely local apple juice a welcome bonus. 10 out of 10. The totally enclosed garden was a great hit with our dogs.
"THE COTTAGE WAS A VERY WARM AND RELAXING HOME."
EVERYTHING WAS THERE THAT YOU WOULD NEED. GREAT ENCLOSED GARDEN FOR OUR DOG TO RUN AROUND AND BE SAFE. THE PUB JUST DOWN THE ROAD 10 MINS WALK WAS FRIENDLY AND HAS GOOD FOOD. LOCATION WAS GOOD FOR WALKING. A LOVELY WEEKEND WE HAD.
"Beautiful cottage in a lovely village setting"
"We would not return to this property as it was on a 60 mile an hour road."
We did not feel that we had been made aware of this.
"One small thing, there is a table and chairs in the front of the property, however, it would be nice to have seat/table or picnic bench in the rear garden, which is vary spacious."
I know this would have to be moved when the grass is cut, but it would be more convenient to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun, which has disappeared from the front. The cottage is extremely clean and furnished to a high standard. A lane some 200 yards away, not for through traffic, is excellent for a morning/evening dog walk, which leads to a rambling route.
"Excellent cottage, very handy location and peaceful."
