  • "We chose Hunters Moon for a four-family get-together comprising seven adults and five children aged betweeen 3 and 5."

    We were attracted by the nicely sized enclosed garden for the youngsters to play in, the sufficiency of bathroom facilities, and the selection of attractions the area offered. We found the house to have been well cleaned for our arrival, and the welcome basket of goodies was a nice touch (thank you!). Rooms were more than adequately proportioned, at no time during our stay did we feel we were 'on top of each other' and most rooms faced the stunning - there's no other word for it - views across the countryside down from the hill. As a bonus the house offered two sitting rooms, and we designated the smaller to be the childrens' play room, which helped contain the avalance of toys they normally precipitate when we get together. The kitchen gave us plenty of room for family meals and was well equiped, although it took us a while to find everything we needed! We found the location very quiet with little passing traffic, especially at night, and everyone slept well in their comfy beds. The owners introduced themselves and were very welcoming when we arrived, and were nicely chatty without being intrusive when we saw them during the week. A highlight of the stay was watching red kites soaring across the sky in the valley below, and hearing their distinctive 'kew' calls as they flew. Two tips for anyone coming to stay here: ladies, don't forget to pack your hairdryer. And, if you like cheese, make sure you pay a visit to the cheese shop in Tenbury - their selection is to die for! Overall a very pleasant stay and finally, the acid test: would we book to stay here again? Definitely!

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Hunters Moon and that you all had a happy and enjoyable holiday. It was lovely to meet you all and let us hope that we meet again one day. Property Owner

  • "Hunters Moon was a great venue for my Husband's 50th and a gathering of our close friends."

    The property fully met expectations. All facilities listed were present and in good order. A couple of guests commented on potential to add some shelving in the en-suite bathrooms or towel hooks on doors. Minor detail as all were impressed with retention of integrity of the barn. We all enjoyed the splendid sunsets and log burner (once we sourced wood/kindling from the rear shed..) Highly recommend Hunters Moon for proximity to tourist attractions and nearby towns etc.

    The accommodation was exactly as listed and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Lovely welcome gifts which was very thoughtful and after l long journey was much appreciated by us. The house was warm and clean with constant hot water, nice fresh linen and ample towels and spare bedding. Plenty of outside space and the views were spectacular. Will certainly recommend.

Thank you for visiting rural Worcestershire and another thank you for leaving the house in such excellent order. I hope we will meet again. Michelle Property Owner

    A very practical and comfortable house, with plenty of room for our party. Friendly and helpful owners. Lovely views. What more could you want (except for better internet connection, but I don't suppose that is possible in the location)

  • "There were 12 of us and a baby, we had a washing machine but only one airer."

    It would have been better to have either two airers or a washing line. The carpet in the lounge was stained and worn, in one place it could have been a trip hazard where carpet had split. The back cushions on the sofas need re-stuffing as they kept slipping down on to us making it uncomfortable. Towel rail in downstairs toilet kept falling off, needed either changing or putting back on properly. Personally we could have done with more plates and bowls in the kitchen as we had to keep putting dishwasher on and only 4 tea towels were provided, again we had to keep washing them but it was difficult to get them dry to use again due to reasons stated earlier. Two kettles provided but needed replacing due to limescale build up. We did buy de-scaler and descaled one of them them but it still left residue in our cups. We had to boil the water on the hob for the babies bottles as we couldn’t use either of the kettles due to limescale residue. Twin beds upstairs had slats that were not fixed and kept falling off leaving the mattress falling through to the floor. This was rectified when we told the housekeeper when she came to change the bedding and the slats were fixed that day One en suite had a shower curtain which under current climate with COVID we feel it would have been better to have provided a cheap shower curtain for new clients every changeover (just our personal opinion) as not sure if and how how it was being sanitised between let’s? Overall the house was in an excellent location and none of the above ruined our holiday but we believe with a little TLC it would greatly enhance the holiday experience.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Hunters Moon."

    The location is absolutely beautiful and we appreciated sitting outside on the warm evenings. We had everything we needed and although this is a large house and there was only three of us, it was still very cosy. I only wish it was not more expensive for the same dates next year as I can assure you we would be back. A very enjoyable stay.

    The view is incredible, the access to bathrooms is brilliant and it is well furnished and equipped. Michelle and Roger were so helpful and had come to light the woodburner prior to our arrival and even came to light it a second night when we had messed it up!!

  • "Our whole weekend was perfect from start to finish."

    All 12 of us were able to meet up, including our dogs, for my dads 50th. The kitchen was amazing and full of every appliance you could think of. The cottage itself was warm and cosy, spacious and beyond what we expected. We were able to arrive earlier than the set times to decorate in time for my dads arrival which was a huge relief. Each bedroom was comfortable and warm and each has its own style. The two living rooms were ideal when we needed to have our own space from one another! The cottage had such a lovely character also. Even things like washing up liquid and toilet cleaner was thought of! The list is endless. Our absolute favourite part of our stay was enjoying breakfast together at the huge table looking out onto the gorgeous view. We couldn’t believe all of this for the price we paid. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to stay and create memories of a lifetime. We’re already looking forward to coming back! Thank you so much, from the Gorst’s.
