    “Perfectly located for exploring many places in this beautiful area and situated in a quiet, relaxed, tranquil setting, we felt very relaxed here.”

    The outdoor green space was perfect for our dog Jenny who was able to explore the garden safely as it was enclosed. Furnished and fitted to a high standard with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Tara and Paul the owners are lovely, friendly people but did not intrude upon our privacy. They left a lovely welcome pack of home made bread, eggs, milk and biscuits plus doggie treats for Jenny. Highly recommend.

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Defford, Worcestershire is this romantic barn conversion, The Old Piggery.

A detached property with ground-floor living and surrounded by countryside, this charming dwelling is brimming with character and offers easy access to two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds; a romantic spot for two to get away from it all!

Park in the off-road parking before stepping into the open-plan living space with a vaulted ceiling and original, exposed beams.

This bright, sociable space has a breakfast bar for two and a fully equipped kitchen, sure to please any budding chef, with an electric oven and hob, built-in microwave, and a dishwasher.

You'll also find a utility area with a fridge/freezer and a washing machine ready to go after busy days exploring the countryside.

When it's time to relax, locate the snug sitting area to sink into the sofa and watch the Smart TV.

Just next door you'll find the bedroom with a sumptuous king-size bed, plenty of storage space, and a stylish, contemporary en-suite shower room with a spacious walk-in shower to freshen up before the day ahead.

In the mornings, savour a cup of coffee in the front patio, a sunny spot to plan your itinerary, whilst the large, rear garden is a secluded sanctuary to picnic on the lawn or dine alfresco!

You'll also find country walks leading right from your doorstep, with plenty of idyllic scenery to explore nearby, including Tiddesley Wood and the 18th-century Croome, the National Trust's restored house surrounded by landscaped gardens.

The village of Defford has everything you need for a self-catering stay, including Revills Farm Shop and Cafe, the Defford Arms, and The Flybridge at Defford Marina when you don't fancy cooking.

The market town of Pershore is a short drive away where Pershore Abbey, Avon Meadows, and the nearby Vale Golf & Country Club ensure a wonderful day out!

On your way to trek the Malvern Hills AONB, stop off at the picturesque Upton upon Severn with the curious Tudor House Museum, or perhaps you'll visit Great Malvern to stroll around Great Malvern Priory and Priory Park, followed by a sweet treat at St Ann’s Well Café.

For a change of pace, the cathedral city of Worcester has plenty to see and do, whilst the large town of Cheltenham sits picture-perfect on the edge of the Cotswolds.

A romantic break in Worcestershire awaits at The Old Piggery.
