  • "Absolutely outstanding cottage."

    Everything inside and out has been thought about in detail. I can’t praise the standard throughout highly enough. Comfortable, clean, well equipped and such a beautiful location. Where else can you shower and watch the cows, sheep and rabbits outside. Such a wonderful place and I will definitely be recommending it to friends and family. We can’t wait to return. Thank you.

  • "Delightful setting perhaps a little to far to walk to Tenbury Wells, but if you want complete peace then this is the place to be."

    The cottage was well furnished with everything you could need, and the added bonus of a games room could keep you occupied for hours, perhaps the garden is a little steep for some elderly, but I managed it at 80. The welcome pack on arrival was a nice surprise the apple juice was delicious, so much so that we drove to the farm and bought some to return home with. Next time we decide to visit the area we would happily book Orchard Cottage again

  • "A fabulous cottage which was perfect for a comfortable and relaxing stay."

    The views from the cottage are wonderful and having a summer house at the top of the garden makes it great for sitting out and enjoying the views whatever the weather. An outside patio area with table, seating and a parasol is also a bonus. There are plenty of interesting things to watch too with all the animals in the fields surrounding the cottage. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bedding was luxurious, it was very clean and the water was piping hot. The welcome basket was a lovely touch too - thank you. The area itself has wonderful walks and quiet lanes for cycling plus many other interesting things to do. We would happily return and would highly recommend the cottage .

  • "This is a really lovely cottage which is furnished and equipped to a very high standard."

    It is in a beautiful location with lovely views across the valley from the summer house. The games room is a real bonus which we enjoyed every evening - although the ceiling in the games room is quite low, even our son-in-law who is 6ft4in enjoyed playing pool, darts and air hockey (he did have to stoop a bit). We enjoyed seeing and hearing the sheep, lambs, chickens and cow with calf in the surrounding orchards and fields.

    The welcome basket was lovely. The house smelled so beautifully clean on our arrival and I have never seen such beautifully laundered duvet covers. We had a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay enjoying the peace and scenery and watching the sheep and lambs around us. Would definitely return and none of us wanted to come home.

    It was lovely to be able to see and hear the animals surrounding the property and the night skies were great too. We enjoyed our visits to new places all within 20mins to 1hr drive away. Ludlow Castle, Goodrich Castle, Stokestay Castle, Blists Hill Victorian museum and the Ironbridge and we also visited the Land of Lost Content museum in Craven Arms, (after seeing the leaflet on the pinboard) a step back in time, i really enjoyed it.

    The views from the summer house are a must on a clear day and you may be greeted by some of the local wildlife. The cottage was warm enough on arrival however we did take advantage of the log burner every evening which was beautiful on a winters evening. Lovely short drive into Tenbury where a whole host of restaurants, pubs, takeaways and shops were lining the streets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the welcome pack was a lovely addition to arrive to. Thank you so much - we simply cannot wait to come back!

Would definitely recommend to anybody and would definitely come again. We walked to Tenbury Wells, it took around an hour but lovely scenic views, only a 10 minute drive.

  • "Orchard Cottage is a beautifully renovated / extended cottage with all the features of an old property (large fireplace / aga / beams / thick walls) and the benefits of a new build (space, really well insulated, double glazing)."

    The kitchen is solid oak as are the floors, doors and stairs so traditional materials were used wherever possible. There are lots of windows with lovely views in all directions made more interesting by the cows, sheep, geese and chickens wondering past. Outside the fenced garden was a safe place for the kids to play with lots of games available. Ludlow, Berrington Hall, Wyre Forest with tree climbing and zip wires are within easy reach. The welcome basket with cider, beer, crisps, chocolate and plums all made with produce from the farm or from the locality was very much appreciated. The friendly owners have made a real effort with the property and its very well located so a great place to stay.

    We arrived to a warm welcoming home, there was a lovely basket of local goodies to greet us and all the information we needed. There was an extensive range of books, dvds and games for us to enjoy and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys (9 and 12) LOVED the games room and the basketball hoop in the garden - such a hit! The wood burner was delightfully cosy (almost a shame the weather was too warm to have it lit every night!) The location was beautiful and tranquil. We loved watching the sheep, cows, chickens, geese and ducks. Just along the road from the drive was an honesty box where you could buy fresh eggs and apples, a real bonus. The local area had walks aplenty (walking into Tenbury Wells was very achievable) and places like Ludlow were fascinating. Orchard Cottage was the perfect place to escape from it all and enjoy a restful and restorative week. We definitely recommend it and would love to return one day.

About the location


Ludlow 10 miles; Worcester 17 miles; Hereford 22 miles.

Tenbury Wells is a charming, ancient market town situated on the banks of the River Teme in Worcestershire. Dating back to the Iron Age and said to have been called 'my little town in the orchard' by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells boasts a unique 18th century bridge built by Thomas Telford, the magnificent Pump Rooms, which housed baths where local mineral water was available, and many other listed buildings dating back to the 17th century. This bustling town has many individual shops, traditional pubs, cafes and tea rooms and plays host to many festivals throughout the year notably the Applefest in October and Holly and Mistletoe around Christmas. It is home to weekly craft and farmers’ markets and a fully restored Art Deco cinema with a full programme of events. Ludlow, with its famous castle, is one of the most beautiful towns in Britain offers a medieval street pattern, which remains almost intact and provides an amazing backdrop for the town's regular markets. Renowned for its shopping, Ludlow also has high quality restaurants, excellent tea shops and pubs. Also within easy reach is Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Leominster, Hereford and Shrewsbury, as well as the Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual Literary Festival in May/June. A bit further afield are Offa's Dyke, the Malvern hills and the Brecon Beacon's. This is an ideal base for exploring the area.
