  • "This is the second time we have been to Eleri cottage and again we can say it was a wonderful experience for our family including young children."

    The location is so good for walking the hills, getting into town and access to the common and local parks. ( and local shop). It is a very comfortable cottage with flexible accommodation and garden to suit family needs. The owners have thought of everything. (And they ensured we knew how to contact them in case of need). Cannot recommend it highly enough.

  • "This is a wow, wow, wow property!"

    We have rented for 12 years with Sykes and this is the best that we have stayed in. Everything is immaculate and well thought out. Beautiful furnishings, kitchen, crockery, lovely beds and as my daughters said, it's like a boutique hotel (not that we have ever stayed in one!). So many little touches. A really lovely garden, though the highlight for us was Tamsin and Paul. Such lovely, kind people who really spoiled us all. We have already booked again!

  • "Tamsin and Paul were really lovely and welcoming."

    The cottage itself was charming and had everything we needed for the weekend. It's only a short walk to the center of the town, and to the start of several different trails up to the top of the hill. Lots of local shops nearby too. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Malvern Hills. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "Absolutely fabulous , my only problem now is that we are going to find it difficult for any holiday cottage to live up to Eleri Cottage."

    It`s not just about the cottage that makes your stay brilliant at Eleri. The owners Tamsin and Paul`s attention to detail and thoughtfulness was incredible. They had left a goodie bag out for Louie our 7 yr old. Flowers for us on arrival as well as a hamper full of goodies. After agreeing we could let off a few fireworks for our little boy, they then bought a fire pit to use. On the day we were to let off the fireworks, we returned from our walk to find marshmallows in abag hanging from the door. It was better than staying with friends ha! ha! The cottage itself was superb spacious, cosy , very well equipped, and attention to detail with notes explaining how things worked . Also little post it notes indicating were usb sockets were on the wall plug sockets. I could go on and on but I suggest you just go and stay with them.

    I loved the little touches (cotton wool pads/hand soap/weighing scales/dog beds & bowls & treats & dog poo bin/child’s crockery & even bath toys!) these are rarely provided in a holiday home but make all the difference. We will definitely book again, was excellent and had a very enjoyable stay. Thank you.

    Perfect stay for us to visit our family and friends in the area. The cottage was beautifully decorated, well thought out and we easily hosted Christmas day lunch with our family. Tamsin & Paul are very helpful and friendly, accommodating to all our needs. The cottage is in a great location for Malvern town & walks on the hills. The driveway down to the cottage itself is a bit tricky and steep. Location wise It feels very secluded and quiet. Ideal stay anytime of the year.

    The property was clean, cosy and had a lovely enclosed garden and patio. Little touches from the wide choice of books, the welcome advent calendar, ear plugs, dog biscuits and a lovely Christmas tree made our early family Christmas worth the 2-year wait. Cannot recommend enough

    Milk, hamper and flowers on arrival made us feel very welcome. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Lovely big kitchen with everything you might need, spacious modern bathrooms, comfortable beds and tastefully furnished throughout. Lots of lovely touches make this feel Iike a loved home rather than a holiday rental property. Would love to return in the summer months to enjoy the outside spaces. Perfect location for a stroll into town or walking the hills without having to get take the car every time.

    Paul and Tamsin were very attentive and caring without being intrusive. Everything was exceptionally clean and the beds were all comfortable. They ensured that we had everything we needed for our 22 month granddaughter. We were very sad to have to leave early due to an urgent medical appointment. We would definitely return to this cottage. Thank you for everything Paul and Tamsin.

    It is only about 2 inches wider than the car on each side and it was very difficult and stressful to manoeuvre. We would not have booked had we seen a picture or known about how the cottage was accessed before. We ended up using a car park out on the main road which was not ideal.

    Plenty of room for our family of 4 and two dogs. The cottage is decorated beautifully and has everything you need (and more). We particularly liked the welcome pack for our dogs. They loved the blankets and slept on them all week! The cottage is close to lots of places of interest and a short walk from the centre of town. The garden was beautiful and so peaceful to sit and relax in or have a BBQ (everything provided). Our hosts were amazing and made sure we had everything we needed, gave us advice for places to eat out or visit and made our stay stress free which was just what we needed. One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in and we can’t wait to visit again,

  • "Eleri Cottage is the best property that we have stayed at, since we started using Sykes, a fair few years ago."

    I would personally give it a 5 star - 100% rating. The cleanliness and thought that has gone in to the design and furnishing of Eleri Cottage, is well above and beyond. Everything was really well explained, when it came to the appliances in the property. There are laminated instruction leaflets on display - which were really helpful. The cleanliness was immaculate, and even cleaner than that. The beds are really comfortable, and the whole layout of the house is appealing. The garden is a place that you could easily spend all day, listening to the birds chirping, and having a coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine a bit later in the day. Tamsin and Paul - The cottage owners, were 'super friendly' and helpful. I really enjoyed meeting them, and it was completely evident, that they truly are genuine and caring people. To summarise. Would we stay at Eleri Cottage again? Yes we would. Will we be returning to Eleri Cottage in the future? Try and stop us. The town of Malvern, and the beautiful hills and countryside surrounding it, really is a place to go to feel inspired, and to re-charge your batteries. If the weather is rubbish whilst you stay there - Don't panic. You will feel inspired and re-charged, even if you didn't leave the cottage. Eleri Cottage was the highlight of our week. Thank you. Steve & Ruby

  • "This is an excellent holiday cottage for a family."

    Great location, between Malvern Link and Great Malvern. The owners Tamsin and Paul live next door and couldn’t have been more helpful and eager to ensure we had a good holiday. The house is really well appointed, with loads of extras you don’t normally get in a holiday rental: coffee machine, fully equipped, large kitchen, juicer, nice pots and pans and even some recipe books. There’s also a second fridge in the utility. The layout is great: big living room with nice comfy couch, big TV and a sunny bay window to sit in; large dining area and a separate little TV room with books and DVD and a little candy machine for the kids, thoughtfully filled with candy and tokens. There’s a full bathroom with bath and separate shower downstairs, and another loo off the utility area. Upstairs there are 3 large bedrooms: a double-aspect master bedroom with double bed; a twin room and a third room with bunk beds (1 double) and a large bathroom. There’s also a pull out bed in the playroom downstairs. Both TVs have Netflix if the kids want to go off and watch their own shows. There’s a nice sunny private front garden as well as a courtyard out the back. Everything in the house feels very fresh and new, clearly a lot of love and taste has gone into it, right down to details like a good hairdryer, hotel toiletries, cleaning products and dishwasher tablets in the kitchen. The owners also provided a little care package with tea, coffee, chocolate, a bottle of wine, milk in the fridge and even a vase of fresh flowers. Location-wise, it’s an easy walk to Great Malvern if you want to start your hillwalk there. The local pub The Nag’s Head is a 5 minute walk, has a cute garden out the back and serves good Sunday lunch. We will definitely be back.

  • "Cottage was clean and much larger than I thought."

    Kitchen equipment was extensive and oven spotless and easy to use. Very narrow entrance down to cottage but was in between Chinese takeaway (which was excellent) and Off License. Access through garden involved stone steps which the elderly or infirm would find difficult but garden area beautiful. We had a glorious week weather wise and would have liked to have been able to use garden chair/beds which I feel should have been available. All in all a lovely cottage and a lovely touch was the basket of goodies in the kitchen.

    Many thanks for your warm comments and glad to see you have enjoyed your stay with us. You will be pleased to know that we have since taken your comments onboard and have recently fitted a steal handrail on the entrance of the property. With reference to the garden furniture, we are looking to upgrade our garden lounge in the near future. We look forward to seeing you holidaying with us again! Property Owner
