    Everything was immaculate and we loved being surrounded by fields of sheep and lambs. Thank you for a great stay.

    Every room was extremely comfortable and well equipped for all our requirements. Alfrick is in a lovely location for walks and sightseeing plus the village shop and cafe is a delight, run by friendly and helpful volunteers.We would love to return to the house and the area in the future.

  • "Crews Hill house is a wonderful house in a fantastic location."

    The views are spectacular and there are lovely woodland walks on the doorstep. It is rural but very well placed for Malvern and other surrounding towns and attractions. The house was immaculate, with impressive period features throughout. It was very comfortable for our family of 5 with a separate lounge, TV room and play room. We would definitely stay here again.

    If you’re looking for rest and relaxation, this is the house to book. David was the perfect host and was always available to deal with any questions. We will certainly be returning. Thank you.

  • "The cottage is very pleasant to spend time in, all beds comfortable and good showers :) - it's well equiped kitchen-wise (blender and electric whisk, plus all the rest of usual well serviced kitchen) so pleasure to cook in."

    The house feels spacious with plenty of rooms for a larger party to retreat into if needed; it's tastefully furnished with good, quality decor (and linen) throughout. The view from the front garden was lovely, and great to unwind there with a cup of tea after days out. The sheep in the fields were entertaining, very personable (and not noisy, in case that's a concern) - if you've got kids they're an absolute bonus, quite conversational if you bleat at them :) The Fox and Hounds in Lulsley served very nice food (but not open every evening) and there was a good Thai restaurant hidden in a nearby village - you'll have to google maps it as can't remember name! The owner was great, very responsive re queries - without going into details I'd rate the customer service for this house as absolutely 5 star!

    Great place in a beautiful and quiet location. Great space for everyone inside and well equipped. Definitely coming back

  • "A beautiful home in a very quiet and tranquil location."

    Everything you could want from a place including all of the facilities provided. You could not fail to relax and unwind in such a stunning home. David was a wonderful host and excellent communicator. Would certainly recommend to anyone who wants peace and quiet. There is a local pub (fox and hounds) which is lovely and only a mile to drive to. Only thing I would say is that the location is very remote so if you do want trips out you will have to drive a number of miles. This was fine for us as we are used to that but there isn't anything really on the doorstep other than some lovely walking countryside. Again, fine for us. Holloways is a lovely cafe and posh garden / home centre which is about a 10 minute drive. Worcester, Pershore and Malvern are probably the closest bigger places to drive to which will take you 25+ minutes. Lots of national trusts around and about the area too. All in all an excellent find and we would highly recommend. Thanks David for your hospitality,

  • "We loved our stay at Crews Hill House."

    It was a beautiful old house and so cosy. The central heating was super and having a log burner meant we could snuggle cosily on the dark November nights. The showers were hot and powerful and the house was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was very well equipped-and I am fussy. It was a lovely peaceful location, the only sounds being the odd pheasant and wood Pidgeon. The views are beautiful. We enjoyed the misty November mornings and lovely sunrise. Being November the trees were filled with mistletoe. We enjoyed shopping locally at the Alfrick Community Shop and getting milk from Lower House Farm where you fill your own milk bottles from the automatic dispenser. Crews Hill House was a great location to explore the area it seems to be 20 minutes from most places. I would definitely stay here again.

  • "We booked Crews Hill House for an Easter break at quite short notice and it was perfect."

    Exceptionally clean and well equipped. So many choices of spaces for relaxing, eating, playing games. The bedrooms are spacious and the views are wonderful. There is plenty of outdoor grassed space but lacks patio/paved areas for a larger group, but that didnt bother us. I would certainly recommend and would stay again.

  • "Four friends stayed together to celebrate our 'big' birthdays."

    We had a fantastic time. The house was fresh and spotless (we were actually a bit scared of the cream carpets!). It was lovely to sit in front of log burner and chat the evening hours away then retire to our comfy beds. There was plenty of space to escape to if we had wanted to! The location was gorgeous and gloriously peaceful, with plenty of walks in easy reach. The welcome biscuits, tea and coffee and milk were appreciated (it is quite a way to the nearest shop). We really had no complaints and would definitely recommend. The only reason l have not given full marks for accuracy is because one of the bedrooms wasn't made up and only had a single bed in it with a travel cot, which was not expected when booking for 4 adults. It was easily rectified by swapping the bedding with one of the twin beds in another room. It did look as though the single room could be made into a twin if needed. We all said that we would love to return.

  • "A beautiful house, the coffee, milk and biscuits that were provided were all gratefully received and appreciated."

    We would have appreciated a note when booking to say that there are no shower gels etc so we could have bought our own but then its not a hotel after all. We really enjoyed the location, it's a super cottage that exceeds any expectations the pictures may have shown.
