  • "My wife and I had a lovely 4 days at The Pheasant's Nest."

    The visit was predominantly to have a factory tour of the Morgan Factory plus a drive for my wife as a birthday gift in a Morgan around the local area. It was a superb experience. The accommodation provided by Deb and Mark was extremely comfortable with everything you would need at hand as well as the local shop, 5 minutes walk away. We also dined out locally at The Robin Hood and The Inn at Welland, which we would thoroughly recommend.

    Highly recommend Ye Old Anchor in Welland, great food and extremely welcoming and they love dogs! We will definitely be returning to the Pheasants Nest next year this is a beautiful part of the country.

  • "The Pheasant's Nest We stayed here Sept 4th to 9th on our first visit to Wellend in Malvern and we were not disappointed."

    Our host Deb was lovely and welcoming, and kept in constant touch even though she was on her holiday. The Pheasant's Nest was warm and inviting and had everything you could possibly need for a holiday away from home. As you enter through the front door you find yourself in the lounge area with settee, coffee table and and a large smart TV. Behind the settee is a breakfast bar and one of the best equipped kitchens that we've seen. Deb has thought of all of your culinary needs. In the open plan layout is the bedroom area equipped with a very comfy bed, wardrobe and drawers with ample storage space and plenty of coat hangers. The bathroom has a definite wow factor, great shower and twin sinks, very 5star. The outdoor undercover entertaining area is amazing with settees, dining table and chairs, bar area and an outside seating area which was used every day whilst we were there. The bar area also has electrics and lighting which adds to the whole holiday atmosphere. We took our little dog Sam who loved the whole place, plenty of shaded areas for him to rest from the 29 degree days while we sunbathed on the sun loungers! One of the best UK holidays we've had and we will definitely be back. Thank you to Deb and Mark for your hospitality

  • "Clean, comfortable and cosy."

    The Peasant’s Nest is well equipped and has everything required for a pleasant stay. It is well located to explore the local and wider area. There are plenty of pubs offering good “pub grub” and the Inn at Wellend is an excellent gastro pub serving delicious food. The only slight negatives would be to have some ventilation in the bathroom and a working heated towel rail although the owner did replace our towels half way through the week which was kind and welcome.

    There is a fan in the bathroom which was switched off and also a window which can be opened, the heated towel rail does work but you have to switch it on. I always ask my guests if everything is ok, this is when i should be asked about said problems so i can show you how they work,? When i gave you the fresh towels i asked is everything ok, to which you both replied...... YES ????? Property Owner

    . owners very friendly, the only negative for us was the fact there’s only the front door, which is open to a very busy road and to access the garden you have to go to a side gate..which meant having to put the dog on the lead every time you wanted to use the garden and couldn’t have the door open.. I would definitely recommend the pheasants nest but not having a back door or maybe a secure verandah from the front door to the gate is the only negative..h

    The only downside is that there is no direct access to the garden area from the cottage, you have to go out of the front (and only) door then through the gate at the side, which was a bit of a nuisance with our dog last thing at night. Fabulous walks within a very short distance, and very welcoming hosts.

  • "Whilst the accommodation was clean and well located for local touring there were a few drawbacks."

    Being a converted garage the accommodation was very small with bed, living space and kitchen area all together, therefore quite claustrophobic. Very close (around 5 metres) to a busy road and pretty noisy at all times, exacerbated by building work both opposite and adjacent with house building going on. Whilst it had an enclosed garden, we had to put our dog on a lead (due to closeness of the busy road) to get round to it, so not ideal. All in all, not the best Sykes cottage experience we have had and do not believe it merits a 5 tick rating.

    Upton Upon Severn is well worth an afternoon visit for a walk along the river. The village of Wellend has a small park that is again ideal for taking the dog for an early morning walk and a visit to the Robin Hood pub is worth a visit as they serve excellent food. My only issue I did have with the property is I wish it had a fence to the front of the property as my dog has no road sense and although the road is not particularly busy the vehicles do speed along there so we were unable to leave the front door open and had to put his lead on everytime we wanted to go into the back garden. The cottage has everything you need a good set out kitchen area with all the utensils and the bathroom is lovely very spacious and the bed is comfortable, maybe a more comfortable sofa would be good if you were spending any amount of time in the cottage on wet days but for us of an evening it was fine.

About the location


Malvern 5 miles; Worcester 13.5 miles; Gloucester 17 miles

The thriving village of Welland lies south east of the magnificent Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, with a Post Office, village shop and its very own family-run vineyard, producing award-winning wines which can be purchased directly from the owners. 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.
