  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week, the cottage is beautiful and well equipped."

    Delicious welcome pack of local sausage, bacon, eggs and bread enjoyed by all. The hot tub was fabulous and our little dog loved the big garden. We explored the local areas which were lovely and the views from the hills stunning. We will be back, excellent, thank you.

    What super feedback thank you. The views of the hills are quite special and we are so pleased that the dog enjoyed the garden! We look forwards to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cosy cottage in stunning area!"

    Absolutely loved our stay and the bed was so comfy. Enjoyed the hot tub, although it was a little tricky to keep going as we didn’t have much kindling to work with for 3 days worth of fires. My only critique- more kindling, dishwasher tablets and tea towels if possible. However the bread, sausages, bacon and milk was a lovely touch :)

    Hello and thank you very much for the very welcome feedback. It was good to hear that you found the beds to be really comfortable - a good nights sleep is so important and was a major factor for us when selecting the beds and mattresses from Hypnos. Regarding the kindling and dishwasher tabs, please note, as communicated in the Welcome folder, as a self-catering cottage we do indeed provide a starter pack of these items, with top ups available to be purchased locally. However, we do provide a complimentary supply of logs for the duration of the stay, because of their cumbersome nature and for the ease of our guests. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the produce and I will pass your feedback on to our butcher and farming and food manager. Property Owner

    Great local walking straight from the cottage, the dogs absolutely loved having the extra space, doing zoomies around the huge garden. Welcome pack & the bacon, sausages, eggs, and milk was a lovely extra bonus. And also tasted delicious. Thanks for having us!

    That is super feedback thank you and we loved the fact that the dogs enjoyed their "zoomies" around the garden! Property Owner

    A slightly longer check out New Year’s Day would have been ideal . The welcome pack of sausage and bacon was delicious

  • "We had a wonderful stay at No29 Malvern."

    The cottage is beautifully decorated and restored. The location is very quiet and peaceful, ideal for visiting the local villages and towns. Didn't get the chance to try the hot tub unfortunately but did use the log burner in the lounge. The men were in their element, made the cottage really warm and cosy. It was nice that we could take 3 dogs and the dog treats were very much liked by our pets. The welcome pack was a lovely touch, the bacon and sausages were delicious. Thank you for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable.

    Dear Beverley Great to hear that you all had such a super stay and that you enjoyed the special touches we put in place for our extra-special guests, I will pass on the message regarding the bacon and sausages to our farming and food team. Property Owner

    Furnishings are comfortable and offer a lovely base to relax. We had a really lovely week with our 3 dogs, lots of walks on the Malvern Hills and there is a lovely one nearby, although very muddy at the moment due to the amount of rain we have had.

    Hi Deborah Thank you for your welcome feedback and we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at No.29. At last the ground is drying out here and the paths are less muddy! We'd love to see you again. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was absolutely lovely, very clean, comfy beds, with pretty well everything you could possibly need for a stay away."

    Enjoyed the hot tub which was very nice to relax in and the space for 4 adults and 3 dogs was ample with a nice big secure garden. We have stayed in quite a few cottages and this is definitely one of the best, highly recommended.

    Dear Graham. Thankyou very much for your comments, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you have ranked it so highly. Hopefully see you again! Property Owner

  • "This is a superb property set on the Madresfield estate which gives it a very nice ambience."

    The welcome pack included fantastic sausages bacon & eggs from the estate so couldn’t get more local! Logs from estate also heated the hot tub which was a great bonus and when you get the hang of it ( good instructions included) you can light every other date to maintain nice warm temperature. Great for dogs our 2 loved the very secure garden and many local walks that they can be ‘off lead’ .Very responsive team from estate nearby on any queries. Only suggestion would be some outside sun loungers or deck chairs if the weather is good.

    Dear Adrian. Thank you for the feedback, we are to hear you enjoyed the property and it's surroundings and will take the feedback about the sun loungers on board. Best wishes. Property Owner

    ) with some lovely walks for the dog right on the doorstep. Well positioned to explore the Malverns - everywhere was about 15 mins away - and supermarket less than 4 mins. Our only problem was that we couldn't light the fire in the wood fired hot tub but that was down to our lack of scout skills as opposed to any fault of the property! Planning a return visit ☺️

    Hi Hannah. What a lovely review thank you and we look forward to having you visit again if you are able to. We have just launched our new 4-bed 'Byways Cottage', quite close to No.29 Madresfield and are about to launch another 3-bed cottage, called Lavender Cottage, so if you do visit again, you have greater choice! When you do visit again, please call us regarding the lighting of the burner - we can always help. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "We were a party of 4 adults, one teenager and a dog."

    On arrival we were greeted with a fabulous welcome pack - the bread was delicious. The accommodation was superb; beautifully and tastefully decorated throughout, with the all important comforts, including beds. One suggestion would be for the bedroom door hinges to be oiled to reduce noise when opening and closing during the night The garden was fully enclosed which meant we could relax and let our dog sniff and wander to her heart’s content. The hot tub was fabulous, although a net to scoop out uninvited guests would be good. There are plenty of public footpaths close by for early morning dog walks. The Morgan Museum is a must, although note it is not really accessible for those with disabilities; and it is just 5-6 mins down the road. There are plenty of places to visit for all ages and the recommended pubs were great and dog friendly. We had a fabulous time and cannot recommend highly enough.

    Lovely and helpful feedback thank you - no one wants uninvited guests in the hot tub (LOL). This isn't a common issue as far as we are aware, however, we will provide a net / scoop - great suggestion. We will also get those hinges oiled!. So pleased you had a great stay and we are grateful for your review and recommendation. Property Owner

  • "The cottage and the enclosed garden were fabulous."

    No worries about the dogs escaping. The welcome pack of local goodies was very much appreciated. The house is well placed for a trip to the Malvern hills and only a few minutes drive from the retail park. The wood burning hot tub took some maintenance to keep it hot and the lid was heavy to lift off. We still used it every day. Would definitely recommend staying here and hopefully we will back.

    Thank you for your feedback, so pleased to hear your thoughts and read your review and we are glad you enjoyed the location and welcome pack. The hot tub cover is indeed fairly heavy for weather proofing reasons but also because it is insulated to help maintain the temperature once it has reached a comfortable level. The recommendation is to have two people remove/replace it but so glad this didn't put you off using it every day. Looking forwards to seeing you again soon! Property Owner

    We usually stay in more than 6 self catering cottages a year, often with Sykes, and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in. We especially appreciated being able to bring 3 dogs, the comfortable beds, the really well equipped kitchen, the wood burner and wood fired hot tub and the fact that you supplied all of the logs. Also it was great to have parking for 3 cars and dog walks from the door. Overall, this was a great place to stay for a family holiday. Thank you.

  • "As regular visitors to self-catering accommodations, we have high standards and expectations of the places we stay."

    No 29 definitely met those expectations. The quality of the fixtures and fittings, the decor and furnishings and the property finish are all excellent. Our only suggestion to add to the inventory is a cutlery caddy for the dishwasher. The location was quiet and set in the superb Malvern countryside with plenty of places to visit, should you wish to leave the comfort of the cottage. We were particularly pleased with the security of the garden for our dogs, as when on holiday we don't want to have to keep checking to make sure they haven't found a hole through which to escape and explore! We would have used the wood burning stove more, but the weather was too warm! We would highly recommend No 29 for families or several couples, especially if they travel with dogs. And we also found the Sykes app particularly useful for keeping track of arrangements. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for your positive response and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We will replace the cutlery caddy for the dishwasher, so thank you for letting us know. Property Owner

The property

Great Malvern 2.4 miles.

Known as a ‘Hovel’ in Victorian times, Number 29 is an ex-estate workers cottage that has been beautifully restored and tastefully extended.

It sits on the edge of Madresfield Village, part of the 4000-acre rural Madresfield Estate, Worcestershire.

With three bedrooms sleeping up six guests, families, friends, and couples alike will enjoy this countryside escape, with fabulous views of the Malvern Hills, complete with a private, landscaped garden and patio with a wood-fired hot-tub and off-road parking for three cars; this property is also dog friendly.

The interior has been designed with sociable dining in mind with a well-appointed, spacious kitchen-diner with double doors leading on to a sizeable patio and garden.

After a delicious meal cooked on the barbecue, the wood-fired hot tub will allow you to unwind and star-gaze whilst reminiscing about your day’s adventures.

On colder nights you can peacefully rest in the beautifully designed living room or choose to play games, read, or watch television, warmed by the heat from the wood burning stove.

Completing the ground floor is a utility with washer/dryer and cloakroom whilst the first floor hosts the family bathroom.

The stunning interior design continues in to the three bedrooms, one of which is a king-size with the other two providing flexible arrangements, featuring zip and link beds that can be made into super-king or twin bedrooms.

Start your holiday locally, reconnecting with nature and exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside, following the many public access footpaths, discovering the feature rich town of Great Malvern or by hiking the famous Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding National Beauty.

On your way back from the highest point on the hills ‘The Beacon’, visit St Annes well and café for refreshments; this well is one of hundreds around Malvern where you can try the spa waters.

Visit the Malvern Priory and Gardens and the well reputed Malvern Theatres with cinema and be sure to spot the famous working gas lamps, which feature in C.S.

Lewis’s ‘The Chronicals of Narnia’.

The riverside city of Worcester is nearby, where the 11th century Worcester Cathedral, Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum and The Tudor House can be found, alongside a plethora of culturally diverse, delicious eateries, pubs, and cafés.

The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. 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 long distance views in all directions. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Malvern has individual shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants, a luxurious spa and it’s own micro brewery. It is also just a short drive from 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). The town is the home of the Morgan car which makes this area popular with motoring enthusiasts. The Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The more energetic can try many outdoor activities including high ropes, climbing and abseiling. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards to visit in the area. The picturesque Forest of Dean with its range of attractions is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester offering modern amenities is a 20 minute drive away.
