  • "Beesoni Lodge was the perfect accommodation for our family get together."

    The well kept and safe gardens provided the children with an entertaining playground, where they could explore, discover and enjoy their holiday. The indoor facilities are second to none, everything you need. The sofas and beds are very comfortable. The showers are powerful with plenty of hot water for everyone. Very clean and extremely spacious. Beesoni Lodge provides a peaceful, rural retreat which was enjoyed by everyone of our group. Highly recommended.

    Wonderful in every way. As a self catering accommodation it has everything required to make your stay enjoyable. All rooms are spacious, very clean and tidy. Situated in spacious grounds with beautiful views and a safe environment for our pet dog. We have enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked again for next year.

    Extremely well equipped and very comfortable. A great base to explore Malvern and surrounding area.

  • "From arrival to departure the holiday was really enjoyable."

    The hosts were very accommodating and answered any questions promptly and effectively. The property was as described, and though a little remote, it was situated as expected, and within east reach of many popular and outstanding destinations. A grocery delivery on the night if arrival helped with cutting down on luggage and the lack of immediate shops - although there is one within a 10 minute journey. Be careful on the long windy roads when meeting local traffic and horses! Being regular travellers we are not always easy to please, but this accommodation and area was remarkably pleasant. All in all, absolutely no complaints. One very minor observation would be the gravel driveway and step into the house is a tad difficult for a mobility scooter, but is in no way an insurmountable problem.

  • "Beesoni Lodge is a very clean, comfortable place to stay."

    Laura was fantastic, she made sure we were settled in and I had a chance to contact her during our stay (to ask if I could feed the sheep) and she was very efficient. The location is peaceful, but remember you are on a working farm, the views are lovely, we made use of the outdoor seating every day. The kitchen is well equipped, we didn't want for anything. There were plenty of teabags, coffee, sugar and fresh milk. The accommodation was spotless, everything was cleaned to a high standard. There were bottles of hand sanitizer at the front door. We very much enjoyed our stay and a big thank you to Laura for making us feel so welcome.

Fantastic country setting, so safe for children with sheep and cows for neighbours!!! We had the best time, Laura (owner) and her family were so helpful with any requests we had during our stay! Great base to visit nearby National Trusts, plus beautiful walks on your doorstep! This holiday was a back up for us as our holiday abroad was cancelled due to COVID- 19, but I’m so glad we found Bessoni Lodge through Natasha @ Sykes cottages - we all had a great holiday!

  • "Excellent house for 3 generations."

    Very well kitted out....we were able to cook every night and bake with the grandchildren... and very comfortable....only tiny tiny concern was free range dog(s?) coming on to the drive and leaving poo...the kids were very young

    We were so sorry to hear that your holiday was not as perfect as we would like and was ruined by dogs, as this is a rural property we do not have control over dog walkers on the country lane which is a public right of way. Following on from your feedback we will be leaving instructions for our guests to keep the driveway gate closed at all times. Property Owner

  • "We chose Beesoni Lodge because it was midway between our respective homes for family to meet up."

    There were two couples and two elderly Sisters so the Lodge was ideal for us. The Lodge is very spacious, clean, warm and comfortable with good quality fixtures and fittings. There were 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 lovely bathrooms, plus the Lodge was all on one level making mobility easier for the Sisters. The Lodge is set in large well- tended grounds and we all spent many hours sat outside in the sunshine enjoying listening to the Birds and some Wildlife. Plenty of Walks, Places to see and Things to do in the area.

    The accommodation is fantastic, well stocked and maintained to a very high standard and is child friendly.

About the location


Malvern 6 miles; Ledbury 8 miles; Worcester 14.5 miles; Gloucester 16 miles

The delightful village of Castlemorton is situated at the southern end of the famous Malvern Hills, which lie on the boundary between Herefordshire and Worcestershire and are a paradise for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. Boasting a lovely 12th Century Church, the village stands nearly equal distance from the historic towns of Malvern (voted into AOL Travel's 2009 'hottest destinations' list), Ledbury and Tewkesbury, which are home to a wealth of black and white houses, olde worlde inns, restaurants, quality shops and are surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are country houses, gardens, castles, museums, railways and wildlife centres situated within easy reach of the village, while the lovely riverside town of Upton-on-Severn is also nearby, with its lovely inns, marina and river boat cruises. Castlemorton Common provides many lovely walk and cycle rides, part of which is a designated SSSI due to its vast array of wildlife, flora and fauna. The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the hills form a nine mile range of ancient rock, which offers 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways with natural springs and long distance views in all directions. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. The Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties and gardens to visit in the area. Malvern has many individual shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants, a luxurious spa, and is also home to the Three Counties Showground. Malvern is the home of the Morgan car, which makes this area popular with enthusiasts. The pretty town of Upton upon Severn lies on the banks of the River Severn and boasts a variety of delightful 17th century buildings and attractive shops, including The Pudding Shop, traditional inns and cafes and its very own museum. It also plays host to many annual festivals, including Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, as well as the Sunshine Music Festival. This small, thriving town has its own marina, a vineyard and a well-stocked farm shop at the local fruit farm, plus the town’s medieval church, which is now a Heritage Centre, is topped by a striking 18th century cupola, known locally as The Pepperpot. The picturesque Forest of Dean, with its range of attractions, is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester and waterfront city of Gloucester are also close by.
