  • "This property is outstanding."

    The owners were so helpful and gave good recommendations. The property had everything we needed, it was quiet, comfortable and in a great location. Great for walkers, lots of footpaths to explore. Great places to visit all within an hours drive. Leaflets provided by the owners were helpful when planning our days. We added a couple we picked up on days out. The Bell Inn is the nearest pub & also serves food. Its really lovely snd the staff were good too. All in all a fabulous place and I'm certain we'll be back.

    Emily was very helpful. Some good places to eat nearby but not easy to walk to. The Malvern Hills are visible from the dining table … which was nice ! Cozy, warm and on the list for a return visit sometime.

    Saw the Jubilee Beacon on Great Malven from the patio decking area. Lots of wildlife. Very near Worcester City and venues to meet up with family. Made great use of the local Lower Broadheath community shop including detailed walking maps etc. so just about everything we needed. The property owners extremely accommodating and helpful.

  • "Lovely 4 night stay at the Tractor Shed."

    Clean tidy & well presented. Had everything you needed ( tho maybe a small chest of drawers may be handy). The garden furniture was a bonus, table, chairs, hammock, fire pit if you wanted to sit outside. You are close to a B road so you can hear a bit of traffic but it wasn't too busy. You have to park on the owners drive & walk round their house to get to the cottage which is in a huge garden/field, very pleasant seeing the sun set. Owners very friendly, helped with carrying luggage to the cottage. If you like walks, there are plenty of footpath signs but you may need an OS map to start you off (we didn't as it was a spur of the moment decision) so we had to get in the car & find a place to stop & start a walk. Took us a while to find a lay by to park up. We did eventually find a lovely walk across beautiful countryside in the Teme valley & had a great sunday lunch at The Lions Head in Clifton-on- Teme. The Malvern hills are about 30mins drive. Can recommend The Masons Arms up the road to Martley & the Bell Inn. We went the Cob cafe down the road just for a coffee which was nice, they have pathways around fishing lakes & a few animals for children. All in all a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings.

    The views are lovely and it is conveniently placed for Worcester and many other attractions. The friendly owners are nearby if you needed them but were not intrusive. We were snug in the shed even on cold and wet blowy evenings in the middle of winter. It must be lovely on warmer days to enjoy the grounds and the fire pit in the evening.

    Great location, near a lot of great towns and sights. The area surrounding the shed is very pretty. The shed is well-decorated, very stylish and comfortable! The shower was great - would loved to have had a hair dryer available (although owner did offer to use theirs). The air con came in very handy during the cold evenings - it was very cosy.

The property

If you and your partner are seeking a unique accommodation nestled at the heart of the Worcestershire countryside, look no further than The Tractor Shed, a single-storey lodge situated on the outskirts of the village of Lower Broadheath, just 3 miles from the North West of Worcester.

Cool in summer and welcoming in winter, this property is a uniquely designed, purpose built, all-season, all-weather home from home.

It will cater for your needs all the year round.

With plenty of walking opportunities within the local area, as well as a host of National Trust properties and outdoor activities, The Tractor Shed is an exceptional base for that long-awaited, action-packed holiday with your loved one.

Or perhaps a slow, lazy retreat is more your thing.

In either case The Tractor Shed will serve your needs in style.

Admire your rural surroundings before entering into the open-plan living space, where the vaulted ceilings are a striking element to the room and the extensive tinted windows allow plenty of natural light to fill the space throughout the day, offering privacy at the same time.

Complementing the charm of plywood walls are the contemporary fixtures and furnishings, where a sumptuous leather sofa piled with cushions invites you to relax in front of the Smart TV, while the small dining table is a great spot for a romantic meal, lingering over a bottle of wine and looking across open countryside to the Malvern Hills on the horizon.

The kitchen comes well-equipped for catering, including an electric oven and hob, a microwave and a fridge/freezer, as well as ample preparation space for a picnic on the next day’s hike or a home-cooked dish to enjoy that evening.

As the day draws to a close, close the blinds to create a warm and inviting space and retire to the plush duvet and quality linens that drape across the double bed, where sleep is sure to come easy.

Off the bedroom area, the en-suite shower room boasts a spacious walk-in shower, sleek basin and WC.

Continuing to impress is the exterior of the holiday home, where you and your partner can soak up the sunshine from the decked area with lounging and seating, or come evening, light up the fire pit to roast marshmallows and keep warm as you rest underneath a canopy of stars!

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings by meandering around the picturesque village of Kenswick, which offers various walks, including the one behind the home that leads to the Cob House Country Park and other magnificent spots.

Get to Lower Broadheath, where you may relax with a drink or have lunch at the Bell Inn.

It is renowned for serving some of Worcestershire's best meals.

The Dewdrop offers a fine-dining opportunity, perfect for those nights when you don't feel like cooking.

The village also has a community shop and is the birthplace of English composer Sir Edward Elgar.

Off to nearby Hallow, a small village resting alongside the River Severn, you will find The Crown Inn, a highly recommended pub, as is the Masons Arms in Martley, while the Chim Doo, a notable authentic Thai restaurant lies a couple of miles up the road in Wichenford and where you can dine in, or relish in a takeaway back at the lodge.

Afternoons can be spent roaming the dramatic ruins of English Heritage property Witley Court; or National Trust owned properties of Croome Court and the Brockhampton Estate; or popping into Worcester where you can brush up on local history by visiting the Cathedral, Worcester Porcelain Museum or The Commandery, an extensive civil war museum set in Charles II’s former headquarters.

Avid ramblers can look forward to discovering the nearby Malvern Hills, boasting a network of paths from gentle strolls along tree-lined paths or the more challenging option of a trek along the ridge to British Camp, with each one offering views of glorious countryside across to the Cotswolds or into Wales.

Bring your loved one to The Tractor Shed to share a memorable break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
