  • "We enjoyed our second stay at Overbrook as much as our first stay last year."

    Our grandchildren loved seeing the animals and participating in all the activities on offer. The cafe and ice cream proved very popular. The bungalow is very comfortable and provides plenty of room for 6 people. We enjoyed visits to the Black Country Museum, the Gruffalo Trail at Wyre Forest and Witley Court, none of which were very far away.

  • "We had a fabulous week."

    The bungalow was clean and homely with every thing you could need. It really was a home away from home. We received a very warm welcome and loved the cafe at the farm the highland cattle. We will definitely return in the future. Thank you for a lovely week

    Spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable. We felt at home right away. The area is beautiful, with lots of canal and river walks. Hanbury Hall is well worth a visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

  • "My wife has mobility issues (arthritus)."

    The owners were very helpful in providing an entrance ramp. However my wife still had issues with the step entrance to the en-suite shower, the height of the beds, and the lowness of the sofas in the living room. I realise my wife's problems are fairly specific, but we would not have booked this cottage had we known what we know now. We have decided to cancel our proposed stay at a Sykes Cottage in Bournemouth next year for these reasons.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were happy to help with providing an entrance ramp immediately. Overbrook is a spacious, well appointed bungalow but we are sorry if it wasnt suitable for yourselves. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and well-equipped bungalow."

    Very spacious with plenty of seating, and very clean. We appreciated having the large fridge-freezer in addition to the kitchen fridge. Washing machine was great, but no tumble dryer. Delicious fudge was left for us! However there was no other welcome items. We are also accustomed to having some cooking essentials provided (there was a little salt, but no pepper, cooking oil, foil or cling film). The ensuite shower was powerful with constant hot water. We also noted that the bungalow was lovely and quiet inside and out with barely any farm noise. We enjoyed being on the farm, seeing the cows and sampling the ice cream! We also enjoyed our complimentary visit to the Fun Farm! Overall we had a lovely family holiday here, the only improvement I would suggest would be to offer inclusive access to the Fun Farm for families staying here as our children wanted to go every day!

    We are glad to hear you had a great stay and we will certainly take your feedback on board. Property Owner

    Very clean ,comfortable ,spacious and well set out.We used Overbrook as a base for our days out which involved trips to the nearby town of Droitwich and the City of Worcester which is also close at hand.Very little noise can heard even though the cottage is set on a working farm.The farm also has a cafe on site which produces and sells many delicious flavours of ice creams .We would certainly consider coming to Overbrook for our holidays again and would definitely recommend this cottage.Thanks again for a lovely holiday.

  • "Absolutely lovely place to stay."

    The beds were comfortable, plenty of seating for all of us. The kitchen was well supplied with plenty of everything. The only slight let down was the noise of the bio generator which meant we couldn't have the windows open at night as it kept us awake but thus really was a small niggle and we would rather save the planet than moan about it! The farm cafe served delicious food and ice cream which was lovely to have on the doorstep. We would definitely stay again and would recommend Overbrook.

  • "Overbrook is a well proportioned bungalow with good facilities located in a lovely rural setting."

    The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and equipment. The TVs in lounge and kitchen are smart, with the usual apps. The beds were firm (too firm for our tastes), heating and water is efficient and the showers work well. The garden is quite basic but there are lovely views of the sunset. The working farm has a cafe and a soon to open extended kids play area. The cafe isn't open all the time except in peak season. There are some lovely walks from the nearby village of Salwarpe, including along the Droitwich Canal, nice and flat for the less mobile. Being a working farm, you may get some noise from farm machinery at times and the biomass boiler does make a little noise 24/7. There is tea, sugar and instant coffee in the kitchen but you will need to provide anything else, including cooking oil and don't expect a bottle of milk as shown on the website images. The owners were friendly and happy to sort out any problems (we had a lot of noise due to delayed farm work, but this was compensated for when we raised the issue). Overbrook is well located for visiting the many towns, gardens and stately houses in the area and shops are only a 5 minute drive away. There is plenty of parking for 2-3 cars. We would have rated it as 4 but the disruption during our stay, not advised in advance and even with compensation takes it to a 3. We were assured this disruption would end imminently, so future visitors should be OK.

    We are glad that you had a lovely break and also took the opportunity to visit the wonderful Worcestershire countryside. We do apoligise for the evening when , unknown to us, a delayed delivery arrived late with no warning .Luckily it was a one off ! Property Owner

    !! The cottage was absolutely perfect, and had everything we needed. Super dog friendly! We loved how you even provided spare dog bowls, poo bags and had an outside hose (which came in very handy after a muddy walk through the Maise Maze! The property was beautiful and the neighbouring cows so curious and friendly :) Would 100% recommend and definitely come to stay again!! Just a minor suggestion, it would be great if the property had an outside solar light just so that you can see where you are walking in the dark (it may already have one but we couldn't find it). Alternatively, a note for people coming to stay, bring a torch :)

  • "Overbrook is a lovely, clean, spacious, and well equipped cottage sited on Churchfields family farm."

    It has the most wonderful views. We were very lucky with the weather for a holiday in March so we did a couple of lovely walks starting from the farm and went along the Droitwich canal which runs close by. It is possible to get into both Bromsgrove/Droitwich and Worcester itself by bus from the top of the farm lane ( 3 buses per hr) but it is a good 20 minute walk. The train station is also close by should you fancy a day in Birmingham. Hanbury Hall NT worth a visit and The Black Country Museum at Dudley was only a 30 minute drive away. Churchfields itself has plenty to offer if you have young children to occupy. Plus a good ice cream parlour which is all made onsite using it's own dairy herd. Would definately use this accommodation again.

We got to see the cows being milked and the kids loved having the cows right next to our garden, where you see great sunsets. Even got to see the newborn calves. Whilst on a farm, you are tucked away at the far end so no trouble with noise etc. Hosts always on hand if you need anything.

On the outskirts of the small village of Salwarpe, rests this delightful single-storey holiday home, Overbrook.

Providing a remarkable family-friendly setting, Overbrook is an idyllic base for your next holiday to the Worcestershire countryside.

Park up on the spacious driveway and head through the patio doors and into the light and airy open-plan kitchen/diner, fit with an amply-equipped kitchen with traditional wood surfaces, and a large dining table with seating for eight, providing a sociable space to gather with the group to indulge in some culinary delights.

Continue through to the handy utility, where you can kick off your boots and refresh your wardrobe before heading through to the sitting room to nestle in on the sofa for a movie night, heating the room with the warmth of the rustic woodburning stove in the cooler evenings.

Moving through the property, you'll find three beautifully-appointed bedrooms, two king-size bedrooms, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room, allowing you to freshen up for the day ahead, as well as a twin bedroom, featuring eye-catching farmland artistry.

Servicing the property is the family bathroom, boasting a sumptuous bath with an overhead shower, where you can escape the excitement for a leisurely soak before resting your head.

In the morning, start your day in style and step outside to the patio to enjoy a rejuvenating cup of coffee in a tranquil setting, with a scenic view across the surrounding farmland.

Venture off on foot and explore over 300 acres of farmland resting right on your doorstep, taking a leisurely stroll through the delightful orchards, meadows and woodlands encompassing the farm, followed by an indulgent ice cream from the farm's on site parlour, made with milk produced by the dairy cows.

The farm exclusively produces Droitwich salt, harvested by hand and sourced from one of the oldest and purest brine springs in the world, stocked in the farm shop in a range of flavours and the perfect keepsake to take home.

If you don't fancy cooking, you can visit the Café/restaurant on site or head to the centre of Droitwich Spa, where the streets are lined with a fantastic selection of pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, and enjoy a bite to eat at The Hadley Bowling Green or a takeaway from Queen's Fish & Chip Bar.

In the warmer weather, take a refreshing dip in the open-air lido, catching some rays from the comfort of the sun terrace as the kids splash around in the wet play area.

Head further afield and visit the National Trust country house of Hanbury Hall, surrounded by immaculate 18th century gardens and a striking period interior, or if that's not your thing, a stone's throw away is the bustling city of Worcester, home to excellent shopping opportunities, museums displaying local history as well as an exciting night life.

Choose a stay at Overbrook for your next group adventure to Worcestershire.
