  • "Spotlessly clean and just as described."

  • "The Pheasants Nest is really well equipped and has been fitted with a great quality bathroom and kitchen, not to mention the comfiest bed I've slept in for a long time!"

    ! Deb was so accommodating and ensured my stay was enjoyable, she gave me all the information I needed and made me feel really welcome, which as a lone traveller was so important and appreciated. She provided a reassuring but not overbearing presence. The location is second to none- the common is just down the road which is perfect for dog walking, and the Malvern Hills are just a 5 minute drive away. I had a really lovely stay, and myself and my dog will definitely be back as soon as able.

    Due to the current circumstances and not being able to go abroad this place was a great British alternative. It was clean and the host was absolutely fab, she gave us information on everything to do round the local area. We can’t recommend this place highly enough. I only wish we could of stayed longer. Thanks again Steve and Mary-Kate

    It has everything you could hope for - and more! With beautiful English scenery all around and a Michelin starred restaurant less than a mile away, you really couldn’t hope for more. We had a glorious week with our dog, and loved every moment. Deb was a wonderful host, with some ideas that gave us inspirational days out. Would love to return when we can.

  • "We had a fabulous time."

    The owner was on holiday but still communicated with us by telephone and text to ensure we were okay. When we did meet her on our last day she was lovely. The accommodation was perfect for us and our dog, we appreciated the storage for clothes and food, and the great bathroom and shower. The walks nearby were stunning and the pub up the road serves amazing food. We have much more exploring to do in the area so will definitely be back.

    Friendly helpful host. Great location for exploring the Hills.

    Reviewed by KarenSep 2019

  • "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.

    The owner (Deb) couldn't have been more helpful and she was always offering to help or answer a question. The cottage it is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable, with a fantastic bathroom and modern stylish decor. I would definitely recommend this for a couple who want a comfortable bolt-hole for the weekend. The Inn at Welland is a must visit for a special meal, only a mile up the road (but bring a torch if you are walking as the roads are unlit!). We had a fantastic meal there but make sure you book in advance.

  • "We had a lovely time at the Pheasant's Nest it is in an ideal location for exploring the Worcester and Gloucestershire countryside."

    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.

    . It has a lovely bathroom with his and hers basins. We found the bed to be comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed apart from washing machine. But Debbie the owner says you can use theirs if needed. It has a nice private slabbed back garden with pot plants table and chairs. I would definitely recommend.

    The owners were so helpful always there if you needed them. It would of been better if there was a back door rather than having to go out the front door and round the side this would make it a 10 out of 10.

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.
