The property

Nestled down a quiet, rural lane on the fringes of the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve, The Old Stable is a charming property, attached to the owner's home.

Well-suited for romantic couples looking to share a romantic break in the Worcestershire countryside, this property offers a cosy feel inside and a lovely outdoor space for soaking up the natural ambiance.

Choose to explore all the area has to offer, with abundant walking trails and cycling routes for those who love being outdoors, then return to unwind in the living room with a good book.

Curl up on the sofa on a cold winter's night and feel the warmth from the fire keeping your feet nice and toasty as you sip a hot beverage and choose your favourite TV programmes to watch.

Dine over a bottle of delicious wine at the table, set in one corner of the room, as you tuck into a hearty meal cooked up from the kitchen next door.

At the end of a pleasant evening in, retire to the double bedroom, which is accompanied by a well-appointed shower room across the livingroom.

Warm summer days will invite you out into your very own small patio garden in front of the property.

Alternatively, you can sit in the owner's orchard garden and admire the views.

The owners also keep horses and sheep and are happy for you to bring along your own horse if you wish (subject to separate arrangements with owner), or bikes to stow away in the lockable bike storage outside.

This is a great area for walking and being outdoors, with attractions such as Go Ape and the Wyre Forest Centre, while the West Midlands Safari Park and rides along the Severn Valley Railway also make fantastic days out.

The delightful market town of Bewdley is worth a visit, while the city of Worcester rests further afield, both offering plenty to see and do.

This is a lovely getaway for you and your other half.

Please note: This property has a 3 night minimum stay

About the location


Kidderminster 7.7 miles; Worcester 18.2 miles

This small village rests just south of the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve, which is part of one of the largest, ancient woods in England, hosting a mosaic of old orchards, grassland meadows and coppice oak woodland. It is a Site of special Scientific Interest home to a plethora of birds, mammals and other fascinating species of wildlife. Fun-packed family days out can be spent at Go Ape on the high ropes atop the giant Douglas Firs, where you can climb, swing and zip your way through the trees. Far Forest village boasts a handy convenience store and a pub, while the large town of Kidderminster, which sits on the banks of the River Stour, offers many high street amenities along with a shopping centre and golf club. You can also learn about the local history and Kidderminster's involvement in the carpet industry at the Carpet Museum, or ride the Severn Valley Railway to the Shropshire town of Bridgnorth, along the beautiful River Severn. Of course, there is also the West Midlands Safari Park offering a lovely day out for the whole family, while the cathedral city of Worcester boasts plenty more things to see and do. A fantastic location for a holiday in Britain.
