  • “The house is in an excellent location, part way up the west side of the Malverns and with beautiful views into Wales.”

    From the cottage there is easy access to local walks and various routes to the summit. The cottage was as other reviewers have stated and we had a good week there. A couple of additional points: The house is situated up a track, and is not precisely located by the post code. In these Covid times we wanted to have deliveries of food shopping and takeaways rather than eating out; the delivery people all had trouble finding the cottage without help from us Please note what I failed to do, that the cottage has no freezer capacity, not even a freezer compartment. I would have thought that was unusual for a self-catering cottage.

The property

Situated directly on the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Yew Tree Cottage is a well-presented property with the Hills accessible on foot from the front door.This wonderful accommodation is perfect for a family looking to explore the picture-postcard location with a well-equipped base to come back to each evening.

After a busy day exploring, be welcomed into the characterful sitting room, where you can sink into the plush sofa and tune into the TV or perch yourself on the window ledge and make the most of the telescope to catch glimpses of the stars of an evening.

Beyond here is an amply equipped kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will find all the essentials to whip up some delicious home-cooked meals before gathering the rest of the group around the dining table for a sociable evening.

As the evening draws to a close, drift off to sleep within one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising a double and a twin, each completed with a refreshing colour palette, charming artwork and ample storage for a week-long stay within the countryside setting.

If you are visiting during the summer months, spend a moment or two upon the elevated garden area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining whilst soaking up the far-reaching countryside views.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short stroll will bring you to a traditional pub offering a superb dining menu and a welcoming atmosphere to complement.

For those feeling active, find miles of walking trails upon the wonderful Malvern Hills, benefitting from sweeping views of the surroundings.

For something more leisurely, spend an afternoon within the spa town of Malvern, where you will be delighted by the magnitude of antiques fairs and farmers’ markets on offer, as well as the superb Malvern Theatre where you can catch a production from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Yew Tree Cottage promises to be a refreshing break within the wonderful location for the entire family.
