The Moats offers two types of accommodation: BED AND BREAKFAST: A ground floor ensuite bed and breakfast room in our half-timbered, thatched late Tudor cottage (ie. built between 1585 and 1603). The cottage is in a very quiet rural location approximately midway between Ledbury and Malvern. It has low ceilings and doorways. The large informal cottage garden includes a view of Coddington Church and the surrounding hills. SELF-CATERING: A stockman's cabin, an independent self-catering retreat, surrounded by paddocks containing our small herd of donkeys and flock of poultry. Providing comfortable two-person accommodation, it comprises a fully equipped kitchen, breakfast bar, sleeping area with generous double sofa bed, French doors to a small deck, leading to a WC and hot shower room. Guests can bring their own horses to enjoy riding on the Malvern Hills or when competing at the Three Counties Show, using our well-fenced paddocks and field shelters. You can also help caring for our animals and birds, feeding, grooming and egg collecting.
