  • Mr Vale

    “We had the most wonderful stay at the Pool House.”

    The owners were so friendly and helpful and even stocked the fridge with some goodies. The information folder came in very handy and we enjoyed several meals from local takeaways and restaurants. The gardens are beautiful and very well kept as is the house itself. We would 100% recommend staying here.

The property

A spacious patio area from where you will enter the property, comes complete with plush outdoor sofas, sun loungers, dining seating and a barbecue, offering the perfect spot to soak up some sunshine or unwind on a warm evening under the pergola.

Prepare each day or refresh at the end of activities in the elegant bathroom, where you can enjoy a refreshing rinse in the large walk-in shower.

Take a seat at the contemporary dining table and keep the ‘chef’ of the group company whilst they get acquainted with all the mod cons, including electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, along with a host of crockery and utensils to ensure that your culinary needs are satisfied.

After a sumptuous feast, relax on the velvet sofas in front of the Smart TV or challenge each other to a game of pool, table tennis, or table football, bringing some friendly competition to the group, a selection of board games is also available.

As you begin to tire, choose between three gorgeous bedrooms to catch your rest: the ground floor boasts two king-size rooms with Smart TVs, one with access to the patio, or climb the spiral staircase to the mezzanine twin, or super-king (on request), and lie back and gaze at the stars through the roof windows.

Spend your days at the bottom of the large two-acre front garden, watching the kids play ball games enjoying the sun.

Stroll into the village of Claines and enjoy a pint at ‘The Mug House’ pub, famously known for being only one of two pubs in England set in a churchyard or pick up some home grown and locally sourced fresh produce at Gwillams Farm Shop, there is also a convenience store for any forgotten essentials less than a mile away.

Less than 3 miles away is the historic cathedral city of Worcester, boasting many attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants, including Worcester Racecourse, The Commandery Museum with English Civil War artefacts and adjacent strolls along the banks of the River Severn with picturesque canal boats and locks, whilst five miles in the opposite direction is the market town of Droitwich Spa, where you can wander through the historical centre and take in the wonderful heritage buildings, including the Salt Museum and exhibitions, as well as enjoying an afternoon in one of its pristine Green Flag parks.

The historically restored Droitwich Spa Lido offers open-air saltwater swimming, toddler splash areas, hot showers and a well-stocked café selling delicious homemade cakes.

The riverside town of Bewdley is a short drive away, whilst a long drive takes you to the historic villages of Broadway, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold - these pretty Cotswold Stone cottages are steeped in history, some dating back to the time of the Romans, with a wealth of independent eateries and shops - a great way to spend the day in quintessential England.

Enjoy child-friendly attractions just a short drive away at the popular attractions of West Midland Safari Park, the famous Severn Valley Railway and Little Owl Farm, where you can spend the day together creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Adventure seekers will love the nearby Upton Warren site, offering a range of water sporting activities on its 20-acre lake, as well as land-based activities, cafe and fantastic bird watching opportunities for all ages and abilities, alternatively, spend a day in the treetops amongst the enormous Douglas fir trees at ‘Go Ape’ in the Wyre Forest - great for those looking for their next adrenaline rush, or for a family looking to spend some quality adventurous time together.

Meanwhile history buffs should visit the famous town of Stratford-upon-Avon and birthplace of William Shakespeare, to enjoy many of the original buildings that would have been familiar to the English poet, as well as three iconic theatres, the tranquil canal waterways, Stratford Butterfly Farm and the many designer and craft shops, restaurants, pubs and open-air market in this beautiful landmark town.

Surrounded by some of the country's most beautiful stately homes, now looked after by The National Trust, are places like Croome Court, Hanbury Hall, Spetchley Park Gardens and Great Witley Court with its renowned fountain and gardens.

Enjoy walks around magnificent building interiors and grounds, take a break in quaint cafes, or even climb up the Malvern Hills to admire breath-taking views of the Worcestershire countryside.

About the location


Droitwich Spa 4.7 miles; Kidderminster 12.9 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 25.7 miles

Nestled on the banks of the River Severn on the outskirts of Worcester lies the small village of Claines. The village takes its name from the Claines Parish prior, which was originally part of the area many years ago. Within the village there is a famous pub, The Mug House, which is one of only two pubs in a churchyard in England. There are also a handful of independent shops, two convenience stores and a farm shop selling local produce. The nearby town of Droitwich Spa offers a greater choice of amenities and attractions including the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings and Aztec Adventure water sports activity centre, plus several well-establish festivals which run throughout the year. Additionally, the village is set at the heart of England, meaning that it has great links to Birmingham, Worcester and well as the Shakespeare Country of Straford-Upon-Avon.
