The views are outstanding. The cottage is very comfortable, plenty of space to sit inside. Outside the deck is lovely to sit on in the evening, summer house is again a lovely place to sit if the sun is to bright. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay here not to far from Worcester and plenty of places to visit not to far away. Reviewed by MalcolmJun 2022 "Hillview Cottage is lovely." A really nice place to stay, clean, comfortable and welcoming. It had everything we needed for the week we were there. The owner was great to deal with. Easter decorations in the cottage were a lovely bonus as were the welcome goodies. Thank you for a really good holiday. Reviewed by LisaApr 2022 "The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed and more." Our family had the most relaxing week away, the views are stunning and the surrounding areas were absolutely beautiful. I cannot recommend it more. Reviewed by PeterFeb 2022 "Hillview is a super holiday home and the owner, Nicola, is extremely helpful and friendly should you need anything." The views from the cottage are wonderful and it's quiet and tucked away but within easy reach of nearby towns and many lovely walks. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean and very cosy without feeling small - we were a family of eight and had plenty of space. We had a really lovely break and there were many small touches which made our stay super enjoyable. We would highly recommend. Reviewed by DavidNov 2021 "What a beautiful cottage!" Stunning views and a very warm welcome with lovely little touches left for our arrival. Would highly recommend! Reviewed by JenniferOct 2021 "A lovely welcome from Nicola with lovely surprises on our arrival which were very thoughtful." Beautiful comfortable cottage with fabulous views from nearly every window in the house! We’ve enjoyed time together in the cottage cooking and eating in the large kitchen. Movie nights snuggled in the comfy living room. We managed to sit out on the lovely deck when the weather was good and chilled in the summerhouse. Very peaceful, relaxing and beautiful holiday. Reviewed by JenniferOct 2021 "Arriving at Hillview Cottage, you are met with an amazing view." The cottage itself is very clean and equipped with everything you could need. It is modern with lovely decoration and also feels very cosy and comfortable!

Reviewed by RusselOct 2021 "Fantastic host, amazing views." Beautiful place Reviewed by LindaOct 2021 "This was our second visit to this stunning cottage with an incredible view of the rolling hills of the Worcestershire countryside." The cottage has everything you need to have a wonderful time. It is furnished and decorated to a high standard and the owner, Nicola, gives you a warm welcome. Cottage is well located for walks along national footpaths, trips to nearby towns and the local National Trust estate. In the village there is a fantastic butchers and the local pub sells provisions which is very helpful and brews its own beer. We enjoyed our family holiday at Hillview watching the sun slowly setting over the charming rural setting. Reviewed by DebbieSep 2021 "This cottage is beautiful - the most wonderful outside space and terrace." The perfect space to relax and use as a base for walking. Great kitchen with everything you need to cook and plenty of space for 8 people. We loved our stay here. Reviewed by AlexandraSep 2021 "Hill View Cottage is a beautifully presented property, well equipped and furnished, and very comfortable." Moreover, it enjoys amazing views from its hilltop position, both over the countryside and of the beautifully designed and well tended garden. We all enjoyed the decking and garden, watching the birds, and relaxing in such a peaceful and scenic location, both during the daytime and on into the evening. We were lucky enough to see a couple of beautiful sunsets. Nicola, the owner, was very helpful and friendly and made every effort to make sure we felt welcome. Lots to do in the area, both locally and further afield, if you don't mind travelling but personally, we were happy to spend lots of time just enjoying the cottage and its amazing surroundings. Reviewed by SusanSep 2021 "Our stay at Hillview cottage was wonderful." The views were simply spectacular from the property and the house itself was lovely and very clean. Nicola the host was also very welcoming and responsive to our needs. My only slight criticism was some of the kitchen utensils have definitely seen better days e.g. frying pans, and the mattresses were rather firm. However all in all a great and peaceful property and I would definitely stay here again. Reviewed by JessSep 2021 "Great cottage, stunning views." Excellent base to explore the Malvern Hills & Cotswolds. Reviewed by PaulAug 2021 "The cottage was really lovely and spotlessly clean." The large decking area was fantastic to sit on at all times of the day. Reviewed by LeeAug 2021 "Our stay at Hillview Cottage was pretty much perfect." The cottage itself is beautiful with views like those on a postcard. We’d booked to stay at the cottage for our honeymoon as we wanted to find somewhere remote and picturesque and we got everything we could have wished for. We had told the owner that we were staying for our honeymoon and when we arrived there were flowers, a card, cake and some wine which was such a surprise and meant a lot to us. A big part of why this property is such a gem is the owner Nicola. She is by far the nicest owner we have met and goes that little bit further to make your stay special. The bedrooms are beautiful and the bathroom has a bath that is situated by the window so you can have a bubble bath whilst enjoying the view. We would definitely stay at this cottage again. Thanks Nicola for making us feel so welcome xxx Reviewed by BarneyJul 2021 "This is a beautifully located cottage, we were lucky to have a scorcher of a week whilst staying and relaxing on the deck and in the summer house was a real joy." Taking breakfast overlooking the Malvern hills is a memory that will linger long. The cottage was very clean and tidy and with 4 bedrooms there was more than enough space for our group of 4 - there is space for 2 cars to park but larger groups may need to discuss with the host. The cottage is part way up a very steep road so easy walks and jaunts are not really on - there is a large pub at the bottom of the hill - looked nice and served food. Nearest shops are a short drive away but Tesco delivered here so presumably all stores will likewise. Could imagine booking again in the future and enjoying the view - doubt we will be so lucky to get such a good weeks weather though Reviewed by MartinJul 2021 "Hillview cottage is an outstanding property to stay in." From the minute you see the view which is amazing you will not be disappointed either when you step into the cottage which is beautifully designed and very well equipped. The cottage is spotless and Nicola the owner leaves lovely little welcome touches which shows a lot of thought and are very much appreciated. The cottage is situated in a lovely position and is so quiet and relaxing it is within walking distance to a local pub and a short drive into the city of Worcester. We have stayed at the cottage for three years now and I am in the process of booking for next year so you can see how much we love this property! This cottage is a credit to Nicola and her husband and there is not one negative thing to say only positives and that if you book this property it will definitely exceed your expectations . We will be back soon! Reviewed by BarbaraJul 2021 "This was a delayed gathering for my family as a belated Xmas present." It was a rare time when the property/views was actually better than the pictures or description! Nicola was the perfect host and kept me up to date with all that was required both before and during our stay, and was on hand with recommendations when asked. The property was outstanding and very comfortable and the views from the terrace wonderful....AND we could see the rain coming from a long way off! We definitely plan to return next year and are currently looking at dates. Reviewed by PhilJul 2021 "Really enjoyed our stay." Very friendly owners. The views across the valley are exceptional and we were not surprised they had been awarded a bronze trophy. Thank you again Nicola. Reviewed by StuartJun 2021 "Excellent accommodation, exceptional throughout and difficult to see how you would find better." Decorated and furnished to a very high standard it has every facility you could want. The outside areas are simply stunning commanding beautiful uninterrupted countryside views. We visited the week from 11 June and were fortunate to enjoy sun throughout. We particularly enjoyed late afternoon teas at the summerhouse. This property is a credit to the owners. Nicola was attentive and helpful throughout and maintains high standards of hygiene through these difficult times. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property and we will look forward to returning in the future. Reviewed by StephenJun 2021 "When you walk through the big gates at the top of the property all you can say is "WOW"." The stony pathway leading down to the garden & view is amazing before you even enter the stunningly beautiful house. Once inside the big fully equipped kitchen you just know & feel you have chosen right & your instincts are not wrong, from the 3 comfortable sofas in the lounge & gorgeous bedrooms all with little personal details that truly make you feel at home. Bathrooms & showers were perfect. Everything is very clean & the lush new carpets recently fitted make it feel luxurious. The only one thing to say is that the 2nd double bedroom has a small double bed, maybe too small for 2 adults but ideal for 1. To be honest we lived mainly in the great sociable kitchen & garden even though the weather was changeable we got to see the spectacular sunsets. Pure peacefulness. The communication with Nicola is excellent, knowledgeable & very welcoming. Whoever books this little gem of a property won't go wrong, we will be back for sure! John & Nicola Owen Reviewed by JohnJun 2021 "The views from this property are spectacular." There are wonderful walks from the cottage and a large number of interesting places to visit close by which filled the week with adventure. Reviewed by MikeMay 2021 "We stayed in mid April." The location is outstanding, amazing views across the Teme Valley up to Brockhampton. There are at least six different seating areas in the garden, not to mention the summer house. A brillant place for bird watching or just soaking up the peaceful surroundings. We walked from the property on several occasions, straight out onto Ankerdine Hill. Inside the property was spotlessly clean, well furnished, and comfortable. Family meals prepared and eaten in the huge kitchen. Reviewed by RuthApr 2021 "My family and I had such a wonderful few days at Hillview Cottage." The cottage itself is beautiful and we felt really at home there immediately. The views of the surrounding area were stunning. We had a mixture of weather but it didn’t matter because we either enjoyed exploring and walking in the nearby district or otherwise snuggling up in the warm, cosy cottage and enjoying the views from the inside! Nicola, the host, was an amazing one! She left some really thoughtful welcome gifts for us as we walked through the door and helped to make our stay there even more special. Communication with Nicola was brilliant and she was so helpful answering any questions we had. Thank you Nicola! You are wonderful! And so is Hillview Cottage. Reviewed by JoanneOct 2020 "So very stylish and comfortable." The owner was super helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is stunning and we wished we could have stayed longer. Thoughtful goodies greeted us upon arrival and the instructions and suggestions were clear and concise. Every room was decorated to an impeccable standard and the decking/garden just delightful. The views are amazing. A fab time was had by all. Thank you.

Reviewed by DeborahSep 2020 "Beautiful view which can be enjoyed from the decking, love;y cottage." Reviewed by KarenAug 2020 "This is our second time staying here and we were not disappointed as it was still as good as we all remembered." Nicola is a great host and communicator so we knew exactly what we needed to do to get access to the cottage and how to leave everything when we were ready to go. Nicola also surprised us with a birthday cake for my husband and Mom which was so thoughtful as she had remembered from last time. Reviewed by LucyAug 2020 "A beautiful well presented comfortable and high spec cottage with fantastic views." Peace and quite - just bird song whilst you relax on the decking. Excellent communications from Nicola - the owner, who also provided a lovely cake and bottle to welcome us after our long journey. Highly recommend for adults that want to chill, less so perhaps for children that enjoy high levels of activity. One tip if you like to read a physical newspaper each day as I do, the local pub - The Talbot - will provide them if ordered in advance. Will certainly visit again. Reviewed by PeterAug 2020 "Hillview cottage gives you a feeling that you are coming home."

We have stayed here twice now and will be returning next year!!!! Reviewed by BarbaraJul 2020 "What an absolutely beautiful cottage and stunning views!" We had mixed weather over our weekend but that added to the fun of sitting on the terrace and watching the weather roll in and basking in the sun when it came out - I can see why the views are award winning Nicola our host left a cake and birthday decorations for my husband on arrival and there were little touches left for my 6 year old daughter too.

We were greeted with a cake and a personal touch which was lovely and the owner ensured we had everything we needed. Lots to see and do in the area means you won’t get bored either. Reviewed by LucyAug 2019 "We had a wonderful two-week stay at the Hillview Cottage in Knightwick." The owner, Nicola, left us some lovely welcome treats, including homemade banana cake, a bottle of prosecco and coffee/tea supplies. Another cake (lemon!) at the start of our second week was a nice surprise! The five of us (my parents and our family of three) were very comfortable in the cottage and found it to be a great base for exploring the area, as well as entertaining our UK family and friends. The view is exceptional and there are many walks and great country pubs within a very short distance. The butcher shop at the bottom of the hill was a great find, and we called in several times for sausages, bacon and Cornish pasties. Please notice that the cottage description (correctly) lists only a washer. There is a line with clothes pegs available, as well as an indoor drying rack and electric fan. We had only a couple of rainy days, so there wasn't too much problem getting clothes dry, but if you are planning a longer stay during a rainier season, and would like to wash clothes, it is something to be aware of. All in all though, a wonderful time in a gorgeous setting! Reviewed by SarahAug 2019 "Hillview Cottage is outstanding the views are spectacular and the cottage it self is Sublime!" The owner greeted us on arrival with a warm welcome and had even made a beautiful banana loaf for us! The cottage was prestine and had lovely little necessities provided eg dishwasher tablets and washing machine powder etc. There is a pub which serves excellent food 10 mins walk down the hill and climbing back up after allows the calories to be burnt off ! Sitting in the garden is a bird watched paradise we saw buzzards kites and bull finches to name a few species ! This cottage is the best we have ever stayed in and we will certainly be going back!!!! Reviewed by BarbaraJul 2019 "It is a beautiful and such a peaceful cottage with stunning views even tho we didn’t get to spend much time outside as we hoped as the weather wasn’t on our side but we still enjoyed it." There was still plenty to see and do in the area. On arrival we was met by Nicola the owner who was lovely and informed us of everything we needed to know and made us feel so welcome, she even made us a gorgeous banana cake!!

Many thanks. Reviewed by ChristineMay 2019 "Hillview was a warm and cosy property in a beautiful setting, with enough space to relax and lots of thought gone into the house to make it feel like a home away from home." Facilities were fab, comfortable beds, sofas, outdoor seating and all the mod cons you would expect. Lovely extra touches like blankets in the lounge, games, dvds, extras like hand soap, toilet roll, kitchen roll and other bits provided as well as the lovely cake on arrival made the stay even better. Could not get enough of the stunning view and amazing sunsets from the decking. We liked The Swan at Whittington, Holloways Garden Centre and Live and Let Live pub at Bringsty, for food and enjoyed visiting Witley Court and Gardens, Spetchley Park Gardens, Holloways and Bringsty Vintage Living Shop on A44. The Grove Bowling place was great for a wet day too. The owner Nicola, was very approachable and just a call away if we needed anything. All in all, a lovely stay and we hope to return soon. Reviewed by EmmaApr 2019 "We booked the cottage based on the pictures, as it looked incredible, and we were not let down - each room was immaculately decorated (the owners really do have an eye for detail) and all the little homely touches made it really special." Everything was spotlessly clean and well-thought out, and we really felt like we were staying in a home-from-home. We appreciated the outdoor area immensely with the gorgeous summer house, decking area, and plenty of seating areas to enjoy the breathtaking view. If there was ever an evening with nothing to do, the owners had kindly supplied plenty of DVDs and games to watch and play together. Lastly, Nicola was fantastic before and during our stay - she messaged a few days beforehand to ask if there was anything we were unsure of, and met us on the day, advising us on the great places to go and things to do. We also thoroughly enjoyed the banana loaf cake homemade and left for us, and the children munched through the sweets that had been thoughtfully provided. Thank you so much, it had been an amazing stay. Reviewed by LeanneApr 2019 "The cottage is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable." It has an amazing view which is fantastic to come back to at the end of the day and stare at in the morning! There's everything you need for entertainment - TV, Wifi, board games. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The owner is incredibly helpful - we arrived later than expected and our Tesco order came before we did, but she kindly took it in as she was waiting for us to arrive. The house was decorated for Easter and she had made a delicious Easter chocolate cake. She was available for any help during the week by text and even offered us extra time at the end to check out as there wasn't a following booking. We were very impressed with the cottage and had a wonderful week away. So many things to do in the local area, even with teenagers in tow! Thank you very much. We'd highly recommend.

It was my daughter's 50th birthday weekend, and when we entered the cottage, it was lovely to see that Nicola had made her a birthday cake, with candle, and a bottle of Cava and flowers. This was a lovely gesture, and we did appreciate this. The house was beautifully furnished, and in such a lovely position for the views. As I had run my own guest house for a number of years, there were a couple of items that I felt were missing, but these were minute in the big picture, and I did let Nicola know my thoughts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hillview Cottage to anyone for a peaceful and relaxing stay.

Reviewed by SuzanneOct 2018 "The owners of Hillview Cottage obviously take great pride in their property as they keep it immaculately clean." The homely touches made it feel like a home from home with a comfortable sitting room, a great big dining kitchen and delightful bedrooms with comfy beds. But the garden, the deck and the view were what we enjoyed the most. Sitting outside with the sun on your face overlooking the tree lined valley was amazing. Getting out and about was easy on nice roads and having a pub/brewery to stroll to was a treat. And the home made cake was delicious. We do hope to return soon.

The cottage is very welcoming and the views are spectacular, even on the dreariest of days they don't disappoint. Then sun sets are amazing! Locally we found a lovely little pub which held a fabulous little farmers market on the Sunday. There are great hikes to. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting that little luxury when going away. The cottage is beautifully decorated, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The free standing bath over looking spectacular views was definitely one of my highlights after a day of hiking. The kitchen is very well equipped and is in a traditional cottage style. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bedrooms were very well decorated. Which ever room you find your self siting in downstairs you'll be mesmerised by the views from the big windows and double doors which lead out on to a lovely veranda. I would not hesitate to book again and hope to return this summer for an extended stay. Thanks so much to Nicola who is a very lovely and kind host.

It was lovely, a beautifully presented cottage, decorated to the highest standard. We could not fault anything. The owners were very helpful, gave us hints and tips as where to visit (as we have triplet daughters who are artists). A welcoming cake and superb coffee provided, amongst other goodies.The location is great, you are just 15 mins out of Worcester - it is a really interesting city, lots of history etc but also great for those shoppers amongst us.. (teenage daughters) We also visited some National Trust properties and took a big walk in the Malverns, but we were so keen to get back to Hillview Cottage on most days and get the fire going with tea and crumpets, that we really want to come back in the spring and especially jump into the hot-tub on the decking.The beds are super-comfy - and the wildlife is just outside your window - I'm sure they want to come inside and join you. I chatted with numerous owls; pheasants; foxes and small birds at various times of the day. A very friendly neighbourhood indeed. I waited for the elusive deer that is a local resident, but I guess he/she was away on business.A great pub is close by - The Talbot at Knightwick (it's only a 7 min walk down the hill - but almost 15 min on the way up) - the menu looks great, we didn't eat there in the end, but it looked like a superb eatery and when we return, we'll definitely try it out. They have their own micro-brewery - producing some fantastic beers such as "This"; "That" and "The Other". All very good, but my favourite was the "The Pistols at Dawn". Fantastic stuff. I did ask the lady behind the bar for a try of "The Other", I did get the threat of a friendly slap - followed by the usual laughter that goes by someone who's had the same joke pulled over 1,000 times before .As you can tell, we really enjoyed Hillview Cottage - the owners have clearly put a lot of thought and planning into this beautiful corner of England - we say well done and thanks for the stay. Hope to see you again soon. Kind and best regards Richard & Karen White (The triplets - Rachel, Rebekah & Sarah)(In-laws - well never mind - Linda & Graziano)Loved it !!!!.

There was everything we could need to make dinners in the cottage and for us the location to Worcester was great for visiting our family. It was lovely to see the views from the cottage and we were only sorry that we didn't have enough time to enjoy a sunset or have more time to enjoy the property. Nicola was incredibly helpful and her hospitality was really great. She kept in touch with us and answered any query we had.

Superb views all round even on cloudy damp days and plenty to keep you busy in the surrounding area. Good pub 10 minutes down the hill for a drink (pricy meals) which also bakes lovely fresh bread at weekend which you can buy. Other great pubs very close aswell. The 2 Live and let Lives a couple of miles apart were great. In summary would return in a flash even in Autumn but would try Summer next so could use the fantastic outside space even more.

Stairs without a banister or hand rail,and far to many steps and hills to tackle.Not the cottages fault,just the person who booked it.otherwise excellent . Reviewed by ThomasOct 2017 "Nicola the host made us all feel very welcome at the property and spent time to go through everything with us and answer any questions." The USP has to be the view from the balcony which is breathtaking. Reviewed by HannahSep 2017 "Worcestershire is not somewhere we would normally choose to go but had a great time, an hour from Stratford Upon Avon, Worcester was pleasantly surprising." Hill View Cottage was a brilliant position, beautiful views over the valley you could waste away the day on the balcony reading a book with a glass of wine. Cottage was surprisingly spacious and the owner was really helpful, especially when we left our coats behind. Within 10 minutes walk of a local pub with its own brewery, the monthly food market is not to be missed. Would definitely recommend the cottage and the area Reviewed by StephenAug 2017 "Great cottage with amazing views & good location to discover Worc, Here, Glocs, Cotswolds." So many places to visit and discover. The cottage is first rate, clean, newly refurbished to a high standard. Fantastic decking area overlooking wide reaching rural views. Very peaceful & relaxing environment. Would recommend and hope to return. Reviewed by ThomasAug 2017 "Absolutely fantastic and homely cottage in a very picturesque location." This hidden gem was a great find. The cottage was spotless, newly refurbished with all that a family needed to hand. The owners made us feel very welcome (especially with the welcome pack and home made Victoria sponge on arrival) and were at the end of the phone should we have needed them. We honestly never considered Malvern and the surrounding areas before but will definitely be back in the future. We really enjoyed this as our base for our family holiday. Thank you. Reviewed by JamesAug 2017 "The property is in excellent condition, well located and is a nice place to chill with the lovely rear decked area and summerhouse with the wonderful views." We stayed as a group of 6 and there was plenty of room and the large kitchen makes catering straightforward. The local pub is around half a mile away down a hill and serves good food and there are a number of other places near by for eating out. There is also plenty to do in the local area, the national trust property a few miles down the road is worth a visit and the Malverns are close by. Would definitely recommend and we hope to return.
