    “The location of Westdale and the views are very good.”

    It is a comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen (apart from the fridge which is inadequate). The outside space is very small but pleasant. Some photos on the website are slightly misleading. Pictures, which I thought were of Westdale’s garden, were just showing the view from a window and the garden in the photo actually belonged to a neighbouring house. There were a number of niggles which, if sorted, would make a difference to the overall impression of the property. The garden ...

    It is a comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen (apart from the fridge which is inadequate). The outside space is very small but pleasant. Some photos on the website are slightly misleading. Pictures, which I thought were of Westdale’s garden, were just showing the view from a window and the garden in the photo actually belonged to a neighbouring house. There were a number of niggles which, if sorted, would make a difference to the overall impression of the property. The garden needed tidying up, we had to clear the drain of debris from the gutters, the extractor fan in the bathroom wasn’t working, nor was the electric blind for the Velux window in the ground floor bedroom. The cistern for the ground floor toilet is tortuously slow to fill up. The homemade cupboard in the first floor bedroom isn’t up to the standard of the rest of the furnishings (which are good). It was confusing to know what to do with our recycling. There was no wheelie bin for recycling. The owners should either provide a bin or amend the instructions given to guests so that they can deal with their recycling appropriately. I like that we were provided with 3 sets of keys. I would not recommend this property to families due to a lack of garden space. But it’s great for couples who enjoy walking as there are lovely walks up into the hill from the doorstep.

The property

This delightful detached cottage, on the outskirts of the village of West Malvern, nestles on the western slope of the Malvern Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With lovely views to the front, and the Malvern Hills behind, the cottage has been comfortably furnished throughout to provide warm and welcoming accommodation, ideal for a family reunion or get-together with friends.

Step in through the side entrance of the cottage to a well-equipped hallway and utility room, ideal for drying walking gear after a day on the hills.

Move through to a carefully-furnished kitchen, with a breakfast bar for two, designed for those wishing to prepare dinner for friends.

The dining room is at the front of the cottage, taking advantage of the lovely views and boasting wood floor and furnishing that reflects the warmth and natural colour of the surrounding scenery.

French doors open out onto an enclosed garden with patio and furniture, where guests might sit on a summer evening to enjoy the views and a glass of wine, perhaps before a short stroll to the local pub for dinner.

The cosy sitting room opposite, with its warming wood-burning stove, is the perfect place to relax.

Two individually-styled bedrooms provide versatile sleeping arrangements.

The first floor master benefits from en-suite basin and WC (please note, as this is a dormer bungalow, the ceiling to this room is low), as well as glorious views.

The larger of the downstairs rooms also opens out onto a small courtyard, with outdoor furniture, offering a more private setting for alfresco breakfast or evening drink.

Outside the side entrance is a covered area, ideal for storing bicycles.

A variety of lovely walks on the Malvern Hills can be enjoyed from the doorstep of the cottage, while the ancient town centre of Great Malvern is just two miles away and boasts unique shops and antiques centres, as well as a local theatre, cinema, tea rooms, restaurants and the Three Counties Show Ground, which is host to many events throughout the year.

A superb, perfectly-located cottage that promises a memorable holiday at any time of the year!

About the location

WEST MALVERN

Malvern 2.5 miles.

The village of West Malvern lies on the western side of the Malvern Hills, boasts The Nag's Head, an excellent village pub, a thriving community and stunning panoramic views of unspoilt Herefordshire countryside. Numerous walks and cycle routes can be enjoyed from the village with the Worcestershire Way running close by. Nearby, the beautiful Worcestershire town of Great 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 Malvern Hills form a 9-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. Also the Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The more energetic can try many outdoor activities including high ropes, climbing and abseiling. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards to visit in the area. Malvern has many individual shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants, a luxurious spa, and is also just a short drive from the Three Counties Showground. Malvern is the home of the Morgan car, which makes this area popular with enthusiasts. The picturesque Forest of Dean, with its range of attractions, is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester offering modern amenities is a 20 minute drive away. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
