    “Clean, Compact and Comfortable”

    A well equipped holiday cottage, well sited for Tewksbury Abbey (at the end of the street and well worth a visit in its own right) and the numerous eateries in the town centre.

    A well equipped holiday cottage, well sited for Tewksbury Abbey (at the end of the street and well worth a visit in its own right) and the numerous eateries in the town centre. (The Sorrento being well worth a visit as well as the Chocolate Cafe). The cottage is cosy with good central heating and comfortable beds, although the 2nd Floor bedroom can take a while to heat up. The TV is supplemented by a DVD player and SKY TV (without movies and Sport but with pretty much everything else). The range cooker is very effective and both fridge and freezer are a useful size. The only possible negative is that the stairs are quite steep and although not a problem for us may be for someone with mobility issues. The shower is powerful for an electric unit and the bath is of a good size. The cottage is also well sited for visiting the Malvern Hills (30)", Bredon (10") both great for walking dogs, Symonds Yat and the Forest of Dean, the Severn Valley Railway and Stratford Upon Avon (All 40"). Again all worth Visiting. We were very happy with our choice of cottage as was our dog who found the little garden intriguing. We would happily recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable cottage to stay in.
