    The welcome pack was a nice touch. It was in a perfect location to explore Malvern and the surroundings. The only slight downside was the parking, which we knew about before hand, we couldn’t get on the drive and had to park on the road when we could find a space.

    It had everything we needed for our four day break. The welcome basket was very well received, everything in it was perfect for us. Secure garden for the dogs and dog bowls and treats provided. A fresh bowl of water was already down waiting for the dogs when we arrived, great after a long drive. Lovely deep bath, great for relaxing after a long day walking.

    It was smaller than we thought it would be but it had everything we needed. Location was really good. We enjoyed being able to walk to the local pub, The Railway, which was 1.5 miles away and served good beer and decent food. The welcome pack was lovely and consisted of bread, butter, crisps, biscuits, milk, cake and Tunnocks tea cakes (a blast from the past but delicious). There were treats for the dog as well. Overall, a great property and beautiful setting with lots of walks nearby and views across the county.

    Thanks for the positive feedback, Jacob. It sounds like you had a great holiday. Very pleased to hear you were happy with the cottage and it had everything you needed. Property Owner

    In order to comply with the law, I had no alternative but to cancel this much-needed stay. However, despite me following the law, I was not provided with a refund! I feel totally let down as I have previously used Sykes for a holiday home and I was really impressed. The lack of customer service when following national rules is utterly disgraceful! The customer service term were not willing to consider a refund and refused to give me contact details for the CEO. The owner offered to reimburse me, but later failed to respond to my communication.

  • "Kits cottage certainly does not have off road parking."

    The camber of the drive from directly off the road is very high. We did attempt to park the car off road! If we had carried through with the parking we would have had multiple paint and bodywork to be done. The drive needs to be lowered in line more with the road. Also you cannot open the left hand gate (from the road) far enough as it hits the road. We had to park in the narrow road directly outside the property only just being able to exit the car. If I had known there was not any off road parking I would not have booked Kitts Cottage. We had a neighbour visit us on our first tea time there and asked us to move our car further towards the T-junction as there is also a salt bin on the opposite side of the road and it makes it very difficult for the local residents to get passed. Apparently she has to this every Friday when new occupants arrive. She did say it was annoying. We felt perhaps not wanted, and to be perfectly honest I cannot blame them. Also there is not really anywhere you can eat a supper...not wanting to sit at a very small breakfast bar. I know there is a very small table and 2 chairs in the boot room. We were lucky we ate outside, although I must say on very uncomfortable chairs. There was also 4 chipped plates in the kitchen...not nice. The dishwasher could do with a good clean on the sides. The TV aerial was not working on our first night, although the owners did come out on Saturday afternoon. There will be further problems with the aerial has has only wiggled it around somewhat! I realised when booking the cottage it was small but it is very small. To sum up, I would never book anywhere without off road parking, it’s important to us to know our car is safe. Also I felt uncomfortable knowing what the neighbours think of all the different people in and out of the area. I don’t think this cottage is up to your normal high quality of service. I hope you will send a representative to the cottage to look at the high camber of the drive. Malvern is a very beautiful town, we loved it.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your comments following your stay at Kitts Cottage. I'm sorry to hear that you were unable to take advantage of the off road parking. The space available can be difficult to access due to the steepness and width of the road. However, guests are welcome to park on the road in front if they don't feel confident to park there. It is worth noting that there is no dining table in the property but there is a breakfast bar in the kitchen, in addition to which the owner does supply a small table (kept in the boot room) that guests are welcome to bring into the living area. I'm pleased to hear that the owner was able to swiftly resolve the problem with the TV aerial. Kind Regards, The Customer Relations Team Property Owner

    The small garden was ideal for sitting outside in the sun and our Jack Russell, Rosie, loved it. Rachele left us a lovely basket of goodies which was really appreciated. She even contacted us to say we could arrive as early as we wanted as the previous couple left on the Thursday. Can thoroughly recommend visiting Tewksbury and the National Trust property Croomb Park. The only thing we had a problem is with the parking at the cottage. We couldn’t park on the drive as one of the gates only opened half way so we had to park on the road which, as the cottage is on a steepish hill and being right next to a T junction, meant we had to park right next to the wall which was Three feet from the T junction

    The design and decor is exactly what we would have chosen and we considered asking if we could buy the cottage so we'd never have to leave. The bed was incredibly comfortable so you can't help but have a good night's sleep. The kitchen makes the best use of space and is well equipped, the bathroom is stunning with a lovely deep bath, and the living room has everything you need for relaxing in the evening. The log burner makes it cosy and warm. There were fresh flowers in the living room, a lovely welcome basket for us and some treats for the dog. The garden is enclosed (perfect for the dog) and you can eat out there when it's sunny. Perfect.

  • "The care to attention demonstrated by the owner was wonderful- small things like a welcome basket and small instructions carefully placed."

    She also gave her number should we need anything which was very considerate. I would most definitely go back and would recommend the location. The only comment, which is not really anything to do with the house or owner, is that it had neighbours and a school close by. A more isolated location would have been nice. But this is a personal preference and not something that reflects on the care to attention given. I had the dog with me, he loved it. There isn’t a back garden though and so he had to be supervised whenever he was out front to stretch his legs. The garden was not very big and so probably not ideal for a larger dog as we have, but regardless, for a couple or one person as I was, it was nice. I did have the plumber pop round to read the boiler, I didn’t expect this or particularly appreciate it during a holiday- I would suggest this is done when guests are not in resident next time. All in all 5* for care to attention and consideration from the owner. 4* for the position and amenities of the cottage itself. Thank you Rachele for a lovely stay :)

We noticed that most other guests had brought their dog with them from the visitor book. Unfortunately we think that people must have allowed their dogs on the settee and cushions as there was a bit of a doggy smell- not the cottage owner's fault but irresponsible pet owners.

    A little more information about how tight the parking would be but apart from this the whole experience was very good.

    The personal care the owner gives to Kitts Cottage makes it a happy and memorable visit. The Malvern area has much to offer and our first visit to it was a great success.

The property

Malvern 5 miles.

A beautiful single-storey, detached cottage perfectly located, nestling on the eastern side of the Malvern Hills, five miles from the town of Malvern.

The charm of the cottage can be seen as you pull up outside setting the scene for a romantic break in a beautiful part of the country.

Step inside and straight away the quality, style and owner's personal touches are evident combining a high standard of furnishings with comfort and character.

A very well-equipped kitchen has everything needed should you wish to prepare a romantic dinner, and a stunning sitting room complete with warming woodburning stove is ideal for those chilly evenings.

Relax in the bath after a day walking on the hills and wake up refreshed after a deep sleep in the gorgeous bedroom.

An external boot room is also available to provide space for storing bikes or golf clubs and hanging and drying walking gear.

Outside the front enclosed garden makes an ideal place to relax with a good book, enjoy alfresco dining or sit with a refreshing drink whilst enjoying the surroundings.

The cottage sits on the Elgar Route, which is a driving route through Worcestershire, following the life and works of Edward Elgar.

Walks on the Malvern Hills can be enjoyed from the doorstep of the cottage while the town centre is just a short drive away.

Take a short stroll to St Wulstan’s Nature Reserve with its beautiful woodland walks, great for dog walkers.

Alternatively, visit the Three Counties Showground with plenty of events on throughout the year.

Visit the riverside town of Upton-on-Severn, Ledbury with its first class restaurants or the spa town of Cheltenham famous for Gold Cup horseracing.

The towns of Hereford, Ross-on-Wye and the many unspoilt Cotswold towns and village also make a great day out.

A superb quintessential English country cottage ideal for a romantic holiday at any time of year.

About the location


Ledbury 7 miles; Worcester 10 miles; Hereford 23 miles.

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 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. Malvern has individual shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants, a luxurious spa and it’s own micro brewery. It is also just a short drive from the Three Counties Showground which hosts regular events most notably RHS Malvern (May), The Royal Three Counties Show (June) and the Malvern Autumn Show (September). The town is the home of the Morgan car which makes this area popular with motoring enthusiasts. 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. 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.
