  • “Cottage is perfectly situated for walks on the Malvern Hills directly from the door.”

    The private garden, situated away from the cottage, was not mentioned in the cottage facilities, so was only used once. We only became of it after reading the guest book later in the week. It was a pleasant place to sit with a glass of wine.
