Testimonials

Worcester is a great city to visit!

Worcester is a great city to visit and this house, under the shadow of the Cathedral and Edward Elgar's boyhood home is a very special place. The house is very well and thoughtfully equipped. We lacked nothing. Guy the owner responded immediately to any query and we are so glad we participated in his Worcester town guided tour. The city is central to a number of National Trust properties and gardens as well as being close to the Malvern Hills for walking. All in all a great experience and highly recommended.

An amazing house to stay in, especially if you are a music fan!

An amazing house to stay in, especially if you're a music fan! Guy made sure we had everything we could possibly need and more. Can highly recommend- especially if you're involved with something at the cathedral - there's nowhere closer!!

Amazing stay!

I can only say glowing things about our stay here! We had an amazing stay. On arrival we were met by Guy and the welcome package, children's Xmas presents, children's cot, highchair, plates. Truly wonderful hosts and felt like home from home. We have a 4 and 2 yr old and Guy kindly organised an Xmas tree in the house for the kids. Nothing was ever too much trouble! We hosted Xmas dinner for our family and will fondly remember this holiday. The house is immaculate and has possibly everything you could ever need! We look forward to stay here again next time we visit Family!
