    “Lovely week away and the house was cosy, clean and homely.”

    Kitchen had most things available, although we couldn’t find a potato peeler, an extra pan or two would be useful (when cooking for a family), and a decent pair of scissors would be appreciated! A washing line would be great too in summer, found pegs and maiden but not a line. Blackout curtains in the front bedroom would be good too, mainly for the fact that we had our baby with us in there. Back bedroom was lovely and dark. Overall though we were really comfortable and the views are ...

    Kitchen had most things available, although we couldn’t find a potato peeler, an extra pan or two would be useful (when cooking for a family), and a decent pair of scissors would be appreciated! A washing line would be great too in summer, found pegs and maiden but not a line. Blackout curtains in the front bedroom would be good too, mainly for the fact that we had our baby with us in there. Back bedroom was lovely and dark. Overall though we were really comfortable and the views are fantastic. House was easy to find, and there is loads to do in the area. For those coming with kids the park in Malvern is fantastic! We would definitely return and stay in Yew Tree Cottage, thanks for a lovely week away.

The property

Situated directly on the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Yew Tree Cottage is a well-presented property with the Hills accessible on foot from the front door.This wonderful accommodation is perfect for a family looking to explore the picture-postcard location with a well-equipped base to come back to each evening.

After a busy day exploring, be welcomed into the characterful sitting room, where you can sink into the plush sofa and tune into the TV or perch yourself on the window ledge and make the most of the telescope to catch glimpses of the stars of an evening.

Beyond here is an amply equipped kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will find all the essentials to whip up some delicious home-cooked meals before gathering the rest of the group around the dining table for a sociable evening.

As the evening draws to a close, drift off to sleep within one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising a double and a twin, each completed with a refreshing colour palette, charming artwork and ample storage for a week-long stay within the countryside setting.

If you are visiting during the summer months, spend a moment or two upon the elevated garden area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining whilst soaking up the far-reaching countryside views.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short stroll will bring you to a traditional pub offering a superb dining menu and a welcoming atmosphere to complement.

For those feeling active, find miles of walking trails upon the wonderful Malvern Hills, benefitting from sweeping views of the surroundings.

For something more leisurely, spend an afternoon within the spa town of Malvern, where you will be delighted by the magnitude of antiques fairs and farmers’ markets on offer, as well as the superb Malvern Theatre where you can catch a production from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Yew Tree Cottage promises to be a refreshing break within the wonderful location for the entire family.

About the location

UPPER COLWALL

Malvern 2 miles.

The thriving village of Upper Colwall nestles on the western side of the Malvern Hills and boasts amazing long distance views. The village offers a traditional village CAMRA pub, a store, local butcher's shop, chemist and Post Office. Nearby, the beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills form a nine-mile range of ancient rock, which offers 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways with natural springs and long distance views in all directions. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Also, the Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The more energetic can try many outdoor activities, including high ropes, climbing and abseiling. Fishing and river cruises are also available nearby and there are National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards to visit in the area. Malvern has many individual shops, cafes, art galleries and restaurants, a luxurious spa, and is also just a short drive from the Three Counties Showground. Malvern is the home of the Morgan car, which makes this area popular with enthusiasts. The picturesque Forest of Dean, with its range of attractions, is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester offering modern amenities is a 20-minute drive away. A great holiday destination at any time of year.
