    We were a party of 5 adults and 2 dogs and we had plenty of room for the week. Lots of thought has been put into the detail of what holidaymakers might need whilst away and the owners were friendly and on hand if you’d needed anything. A very comfortable home from home with great amenities nearby for eating and dog walking. I’d definitely recommend.

    This was our second visit and we hope to stay again and again to visit our family in the local area. Not only is Eleri of 5 star standard (the cottage is immaculate and the special touches are everywhere to be seen), it's Paul and Tamsin that make this such a wonderful place. They give such a warm welcome and the thoughtfulness of them is outstanding. Paul and Tamsin provided us with an Easter egg hunt for our four children which they absolutely loved and the most beautiful arrival hamper. I can't recommend Eleri highly enough to you. We are really looking forward to staying with them again! The Blackburne family.

  • "Fabulous Cottage, Lovely Area."

    Perfect Stay. Eleri Cottage is a credit to the owners. Everything we wanted for a relaxing break away with friends. Directions were clear & precise, plenty of parking. A cosy but large cottage where friends/ family can gather but also have space from each other if required with the living room & snug available on the ground floor. Also ground floor bathroom with both bath & walk in shower & w/c. Additionally downstairs w/c by the utility room. I have restricted mobility so all of this was important to me when booking ( not Disabled accommodation but well thought out & safe) 2 steps up into living room but you can see this on the pictures & the steps are wide, safe & accessible. Living area very comfy & a bonus to have netflix available for a cosy winter night in watching a film. DVD'S too. Excellent lighting throughout, especially up the stairs. Bedrooms spacious & comfortable owners have thought of everything. Large bathroom upstairs too with walk in shower & w/c. Garden is private & secure we didn't take my dog or any children but would be happy to do so. The area is lovely, Tamsin recommended some places to eat & we also cooked. Kitchen .has everything you need. Owners available by phone/ text but not intrusive at all. A great welcome with flowers,wine & treat hamper left for us. Beautiful area, fabulous spotless, peaceful, cosy cottage. We will return again.

    We’ve visited many places over the years and this is one of the best. Immaculately clean and all the facilities you want and lots of little extra features that make it like a home from home. The hosts live nearby and were friendly and helpful, there if you need them. The cottage itself is very spacious and just tucked away from the street, with a nice garden at the front. Great Malvern is a 10 minute walk away with lots of shops, restaurants, takeaways and pubs. It’s also well placed for lots of day trips out as well as walking around the hills themselves. We definitely intend to return to this cottage one day.

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 .

    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.

    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.

    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.

About the location


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.
