  • "This was (without exaggeration) the worst short break we never had."

    I say 'never' as the reception we had from the owner was so awful, we couldn't stay. We paid extra for our second dog (both dogs are small/medium, gentle breeds) but the owner began shouting at us the moment I took the dogs out of the car (they were both on leads and well behaved). It was dark and raining heavily, so we walked to the tent pursued by the owner shouting at us. 'Don't let the dogs on the bed!' 'This is my land and I it's not my fault it's raining!' And more. My son, who is working through some personal trauma (the main reason for the break) couldn't cope with the abuse and said that he couldn't stay, we agreed and left to find a Travelodge.

About the location


Worcester 10.3 miles; Ludlow 22.4 miles; Malvern 17.6 miles; Kidderminster 10.5 miles.

An ancient village which has had a settlement since before Norman times, offering a village shop and Post Office and many lovely walks with the Worcestershire Way close by. Witley Court, a palatial 19th century mansion encased in landscaped gardens with impressive fountains owned by English Heritage. Also in the village is a Grade II listed Coaching Inn, The Hundred House Hotel, named as it was the collection point for agricultural tithes from 100 districts. Take a walk to the top of Woodbury Hill, look out the remains of an Iron Age Fort and take in the stunning views across the River Teme to the Malvern Hills beyond. Nestling of the banks of the River Severn is the popular town of Stourport-on-Severn, which offers an abundance of cafes, shops, and charming black and white timbered buildings. The Wyre Forest straddles the borders of Worcestershire and Shropshire and is one of the largest woodlands in the country, much of which is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest with the remainder listed as a Nature Reserve. The forest is home to a vast array of wildlife, including wild woodland birds, moths and adders, as well as a web of excellent footpaths and cycle routes, pony trekking opportunities and a discovery centre. The attractive market town of Bewdley, once described as 'the most perfect Georgian town in Worcestershire' is just a short drive away, nestling on the banks of the River Severn and offering a good choice of amenities including individual shops, antique and craft galleries. The magnificent Malvern Hills provide a 9-mile range of ancient rock, where you will find many miles of bridleways offering superb, far-reaching views stretching in all directions. This area has some of the best attractions in the country with the Severn Valley Railway, West Midlands Safari Park, many National Trust properties as well as numerous riverside festivals, regattas and open-air concerts.
