  • "A great little place!"

    Perfect for a long weekend or week and our puppy loved it, we set his travel crate & pen up in the conservatory/ dining area and was just the right size for his bedtime. Lovely little touches and speedy wifi! Small, but they have managed to put everything in that's needed. Thank you so much!

  • "My wife and I rented the Nest for a brief 3 day stay and it was ideal for us and our dog."

    Treats left for our puppy were much appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet Kathryn, the owner of the cottage.

  • "We had a great stay at the Nest."

    Kathryn was just over the road if we needed anything, gave us a local recommendation and we had a wonderful, relaxing stay in her spotless cottage. The views were great and our little dog was perfectly catered for with blankets provided for furniture and dog treats left for her. Thank you, Kathryn!

  • "A lovely cosy little place, very homely and a wonderful kind host who made us feel very welcome."

    Well stocked kitchen, very comfortable bed and fantastic views from the conservatory! Lots of little touches like the fresh herbs and flowers, Kathryn was a wonderful host and offered us coffee when I said I’d forgotten to pack some and very responsive to questions. We had a lovely rest in the beautiful Malverns, our dog loved the treats you had left him and we were grateful for the dog blankets for him to use THANK YOU!!!

  • "Although small the cottage had everything we needed."

    We chose this cottage and Malvern specifically because we wanted a couple of days peace and quiet, unfortunately there were very loud roadworks right by the front door also meaning we had to park two streets away on the second day. The place was great (stairs are tricky, would not suit elderly) the roadworks were not.

    Thank you for you feedback. We are so sorry that the roadworks impacted your stay. We had contacted you to warn you of the works and we understood you were happy to continue with your stay. Regrettably this was outside our control with it being essential gas works. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Parking a big problem hard to get a space outside accommodation."

    Tv - bad reception, would suggest tv in conservatory area away from noise of main road

    Thank you for your comments. Parking is accurately advertised as roadside parking on first come, first serve basis. This has been amended to make this clearer for future guests. The property owner feels the TV is better located in the sitting room as opposed to the conservatory and would not have any impact on the reception as the aerial is on the TV. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cozy cottage in a beautiful part of the country with lots to do."

    Our host was very welcoming, and a small problem with the bath was fixed straight away. Although it was a "pet-friendly" cottage, you would not have known as it was so beautifully presented and clean.

  • "The Nest is a lovely place to spend a few days."

    It is definitely small and compromises have been made due to space - smaller tub chairs, no freezer, the shower is a handheld attachment to the bath - but all these just show how much thought has been put into creating a cosy, welcoming house. Thanks to the provided dressing gowns, a gorgeously deep bath - with views over the hills, and the drinks chilling in the fridge on arrival, this small cottage felt luxurious! The cottage is situated close to the Malvern Hills and the town of Great Malvern, so is the perfect base to explore everything the local area has to offer. Great Malvern itself is full of lovely shops and cafes (and a wonderful food market on the weekends). A tiny note - the house and hosts are very dog friendly but the warning about the stairs being difficult for those with low mobility goes for dogs too. Our elderly dog loved the house and holiday but definitely needed help with the stairs as they are quite steep with a turn mid-way down.

    Also oven had tin foil in that looked like it wasnt new. When I went around to sanitise as soon as I arrived I picked up crumbs and dust. That aside, the cottage was comfortable.

    We stayed for a few weeks to escape London, the host was so welcoming and looked after us throughout our stay, she gave us all the local tips! It was clean and cosy with everything we needed to enjoy our time there, we would highly recommend a stay here! Hope to be back one day.

    It is an interesting blend of Novelty of design, yet full equipped with comfort. The attractive hillside setting is true the location of being on the Malvern hills. Very convenient for walkers both up and around the hills as well as into Great Malvern.

  • "This beautiful cottage was just perfect!"

    Tiny yet full of everything I needed! Clean, comfy and just wonderful. The location was amazing, the dog and I walked in the hills, had trips to Ledbury on the bus and enjoyed the local pubs! The owners are awesome, helpful, thoughtful and kind! The fire in the lounge really created a perfect place to unwind, along with the birdsongs. The kitchen was fully equipped and clean. The dining room had plenty of space and the garden a real sun trap The bed was comfy and clean. There was ample room for my clothes and the bathroom was lovely, clean and modern. My husband loved the dressing gowns I would totally recommend this cottage and will be back for sure

About the location

GREAT MALVERN

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

Malvern is an excellent centre for both long and short holidays. Its unique history, dramatic countryside and close proximity to numerous places of interest offer plenty for all visitors to discover. 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 spectacular views in all directions. Other outdoor activities available include high ropes, climbing and abseiling and fishing and river cruises are available nearby. A number of National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards are within easy reach. Malvern has many individual shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants and a luxurious spa. Great Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. The town holds antique and craft fairs, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Malvern Theatres has an extensive programme throughout the year including productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company, musicals, and dance, to world-renowned musicians and orchestras; the associated cinema screens new releases. In June Ledbury hosts an annual Poetry Festival. For the motor enthusiast the Morgan Motor Company is within walking distance of the cottage and, on the hills, Eastnor Castle’s summer events programme includes the Land Rover Experience. It is just a short drive to 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). Worcester, one of the Three Choirs Festival cities, is within easy driving distance as are Tewkesbury, Hereford and the Wye valley. Easy access to the M5 and M50 motorways brings other places within reach such as Gloucester with its historic dockyard, Monmouth and the Forest of Dean, and Cheltenham and its festivals. Convenient rail and bus links enable days out without a car. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
