  • "Prospect cottage is all you could ask for a real home from home and the welcome hamper is a really lovely touch with all the necessities you need even a jar of treats for your dog."

    I would recommend it to anyone 5 star.

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage in a fabulous location."

    Spotlessly clean and one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in. The owners had literally thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable- lots of nice touches such as fresh flowers, handmade soap and a fabulous welcome hamper . The only “better ifs” are minor - we would have liked access to a vacuum as we were there for a week and also a guest guide with instructions and hints and tips would be helpful, however the owner did call in advance and gave us lots of helpful recommendations . We would highly recommend and would definitely return, we were there in November and the weather was kind but in warmer weather it would be lovely to sit in the garden with a glass of wine and a bbq

    It is just so clean ,comfortable and well equipped (best kitchen I've ever come across in a holiday cottage), and makes an ideal base for exploring the Malvern Hills and surrounding area. I expect we will be back next year.......

  • "One of the best appointed holiday lets we have ever stayed in, not only was the property perfect for our needs, well equipped and presented but the location was too!"

    From the welcome pack on arrival (which Geoff personally made the extra effort to alter as we are both non-drinkers) to the supremely well kitted-out kitchen, bathrooms and without doubt THE most comfortable bed either of us has ever slept in! Outside is a lovely little courtyard for sunny morning breakfasts and down the garden a decking area for evening relaxing watching the colourful paragliders lazily passing overhead. Stunning view across to the Cotswolds in the distance make for some great photo opportunities too. The location was ideal for exploring the Malvern's and surrounding areas and only a mile from the Three Counties Show Ground should you time your stay for one of the many events that go on over the year. Based at the foot of the Malvern Hills themselves it is ideally situated for keen walkers, dog owners and mountain bikers, just a five minute walk up the road and you're on the trails up the hills for what are some of the best views anywhere. We have had the best two weeks hear and could have stayed longer, no hesitation in recommending Geoff & Glynn's lovely cottage to anyone!

  • "Simply the best!"

    We had a wonderful week staying in Glynn and Geoff's beautiful cottage. They have thought of everything needed and it was beautifully presented and decorated, with a pretty garden, but also really dog friendly. Such a great location with walking onto the Malverns from the door and lots to do in the local area. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this really was among the best. Thank you for a great week.

  • "A really special place to stay - extremely well equipped and the standard of the fittings generally exceptional - e."

    G. sinks, showers, cooker, etc. The only thing that fooled us for a day was the "games under the table" note! But we did find them eventually!!. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable - so, too, the upstairs bathroom. A more prominent note giving wifi details would have helped but this was not really a problem. Would have spent more time in the garden if the weather had been better behaved!! All in all we couldn't fault it, so thank you Glyn and Geoff.

    The owners had ensured everything we'd need was available. The welcome gift featuring regional produce was a thoughtful gesture and greatly appreciated. The area is fantastic, close to National Trust properties and being so close to the Malverns there are walks on the doorstep. We had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

  • "Gorgeous cottage, beautiful throughout."

    Lovely fixtures and fittings. Unfortunately central heating boiler broke down and took 2 days to repair, therefore no heating or hot water, not recommended during an extremely wet and cold November. Apparently we found out this was an ongoing problem and had not been corrected prior to rental. Also check the garden, as this was definitely not dog-proof. Holiday terminated early due to these problems.

  • "I can honestly say that we have never stayed at a better self-catering cottage."

    The owners must work in the hospitality industry, because even the smallest detail was taken into consideration, from the selection of local beers and wines in the larder, to the hamper of eggs, milk and other sundries on arrival, to the perfectly pressed white bed linen and towels, to the individually rolled squares of newspaper to assist with lighting the stove. The decoration and standard of fittings are faultless. It is a warm, supremely comfortable cottage with tall views of the sunrise from the bedroom, and the Malvern hills just a few steps away from the door. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Glynn and Geoffrey!

    Just great to know that we appear to have got it right - even down to the sunrises - for which we can't really take the credit. Property Owner

    It is characterfully colourful and immaculate. The hosts generously provided a welcome tray which included many local products. There was a full basket of logs for the fire which we used each evening. The kitchen is a cook’s dream, very well equipped. In the warmer weather there are places to eat in the pretty sloping garden. The sunrises from the east facing bedroom and dining room were spectacular. We would happily return to this area, the Malvern hills are a short walk from the door.

    It was immaculate, cosy, in a quiet location but within 5-10 minutes of hills, shops and cafes that, nice as they all were, took some motivation to get out to, given how absolutely wonderful it was to stay snuggled up inside with the well stocked treats and wine that was a really nice surprise on arrival! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this as a 5 star place to stay away.
