The property

Resting in the picturesque village of Blakedown, Worcestershire is this historic, former railway workers', semi-detached cottage, Station Masters Cottage.

The cottage sits on an active train line at Blakedown Station, the train line is one stop from the famous Severn Valley Railway in Kidderminster, along with short direct trains travelling to the likes of The Jewellery Quarter, Warwick, Worcester, Stratford, Bridgenorth and Birmingham city centre.

This family-friendly holiday home offers an enclosed garden, woodburning stove and three bedrooms with en-suites for a well-equipped cottage to call home in the Heart of England.

After parking in the off-road parking site, step inside and make yourself right at home, you'll find a mixture of character features and contemporary amenities throughout.

An inviting sitting room offers cushioned seats, homely décor and a Smart TV with a DVD player and a Playstation to enjoy for evening entertainment, whilst your pooch curls up in front of the crackling woodburning stove.

Prepare your favourite home-cooked meals in the bright and spacious kitchen/diner with a stylish finish, offering a washing machine, dishwasher and high-quality cooking facilities.

Set the dining table and tuck into a hearty meal, or why not set up outside in the enclosed garden on summer evenings with a barbecue; pet-friendly and fully enclosed, children are free to play in safety whilst you rustle up tasty treats on the barbecue.

After the day's adventures, choose from four well-appointed bedrooms to relax in the evenings.

On the ground floor, the main house has a king-size with en-suite shower room, and a children's feature Thomas the Tank Engine bunk room, along with a cloakroom, whilst a beautiful king-size rests upstairs; original beams, a small sitting area, a bespoke feature stained glass window and an en-suite shower room make this a fabulous master bedroom!

Accessed via the garden, a brick built annexe which hosts a twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room, making a perfect quiet little hideaway.

You'll find a shop and a couple of pubs just around the corner in Blakedown to stock up on essentials or take a break from cooking, along with Churchill & Blakedown Golf Club!

The local train station is just opposite to leave the car at home and explore further afield; Stourbridge and Kinver are nearby, where attractions include the National Trust's Kinver Edge and the Rock Houses.

Stop for lunch in Bewdley before venturing into the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve, an ancient forest with picnic areas, walking and cycling trails, and a café.

Alternatively, head to West Midland Safari Park for a family-friendly day out with animals, a theme park and discovery trails!

The Severn Valley Railway is another brilliant day out to traverse through idyllic countryside on a heritage railway, but if you're looking for more walking opportunities with your dogs, Clent Hills and Lickey Hills are two nature reserves well-worth a ramble.

Great for families, pets and railway enthusiasts, make Station Masters Cottage your holiday home in Worcestershire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location

BLAKEDOWN

Kidderminster 3.6 miles; Stourbridge 5.5 miles; Bewdley 10 miles; Birmingham 15.4 miles; Bridgnorth 17.7 miles; Ironbridge 26.5 miles.

Blakedown is a village in the Wyre Forest District in the north of the county of Worcestershire, England. Following enclosures and the arrival of the railway, it developed both agriculturally and industrially during the 19th century. Due to its transport links, it now serves mainly as a dormitory for the neighbouring town of Kidderminster, along with the cities of Birmingham and Worcester. Close by, one of the largest ancient woodlands in the country, the Wyre Forest is a designated SSSI and National Nature Reserve, offering visitors lovely walks and cycle trails, home to many rare species of wildlife, flora and fauna. The pretty town of Bewdley, once described as the most perfect Georgian town in Worcestershire lies on the banks of the River Severn and has a good choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes, antiques and craft galleries, as well as the Severn Valley Railway. Also close by is Stourbridge, famous for its glassmaking and some of the best attractions in the country, including the West Midlands Safari Park, Ironbridge Gorge and the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford are within driving distance. The major city of Birmingham is also within reach of Blakedown, which boasts a range of things to see and do, including the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, where you can enjoy an afternoon of retail therapy, and Cadbury World, where you can enjoy fascinating, self-guided tours; the city also houses an airport, handy for those travelling in from overseas. The medieval town and birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, the beautiful Malvern Hills, Ludlow, Warwick with its magnificent castle and Bridgnorth, Dudley with its famed Black Country Living Museum, along with many unspoilt Cotswold towns and villages also make a great family day out.
