    We had to leave !!

    Absolutely everything. We wanted for nothing, Chrissy made us most welcome and had thought of everything to make our stay great, she even cooked my eggs just the way I like them each morning with my full English breakfast. We would certainly recommend anyone to stay here if they are visiting the Malvern area.

    Communication. I was told I was not expected on my planned arrival day and that I had been texted and emailed through booking.com site none of these communications ever arrived. On the second day the breakfast I had ordered, system is fill in form and put in certain place night before, was not what I had requested! Suit a loner who wants to spend most of the time out.

Cooked breakfast delivered to landing ! When does ' Private ' become isolated ? ie. felt isolated from the environment in which I had hoped to find myself .

    Elgar's beloved hills and the quiet he enjoyed

    • Stayed 2 nights

    Ancient farmhouse, quiet and isolated from any surrounding properties - outside the village with lovely farmland views. Good gravel drive and welcoming dogs. Birdsong uninterrupted each morning by any other noise or sound. Delightful position and the quiet I needed for the Elgar Birthday weekend - to contemplate, pray and read. The owner is a Reiki expert so massage would have been an option had I required it. Highly recommended for value, attention to details and caring attitude. Good walks across fields nearby and stunning views of the Malvern Hills. Good pubs for those little in between moments. Close to County Show-ground and all other local sites.

    No lights outside the building - dangerous to enter or leave the property at night as it was so dark but this was a temporary fault I believe. Breakfast choice sheet was overly complicated! Three different systems for picking what you want - just needs a much simpler approach as found in other B&B's, just tick what you want?

    Beatiful location in countryside and old historic house, lovely big room, Chrissy very friendly and helpful. Lovely dogs in the house and good pubs nearby including some gastropubs. Thoughtful touch to leave chilled fresh milk in the room for drinks. Great breakfast!
