Testimonials

A fantastic holiday

We had a fantastic holiday here this Christmas! Being right next to the Cathedral for Christmas services was wonderful and we were minutes away from the shops! The beds were really comfortable and the hot water was always available - the shower was good too. Everything worked perfectly and the kitchen was fantastically well equipped - even for cooking a Christmas dinner for six! Thank you so much for making our stay so lovely!

Ideally situated

Having recently returned from a stay at this beautiful cottage, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The house is tastefully decorated and well maintained, the beds and furniture are very comfortable, and the place is lovely and clean. There is no doubt that every effort has been made to make the visitor’s stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. I particularly liked the fresh flowers, and selection of ‘goodies’ (fresh coffee, biscuits etc) which made me feel very welcome. The owners are lovely people who were very accommodating, and were incredibly helpful during the booking process and throughout my stay. The house is ideally situated within walking distance of the city’s shops and amenities. I have already recommended this lovely place to my friends and colleagues and will definitely be returning in the new year!

a thoroughly enjoyable time

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time exploring Worcester and the surrounding area, and have been extremely happy with well equipped and comfortable accommodation. We really appreciated the 'welcome pack' and fresh flowers. Thank you also, for the information on local events and activities, and we also found the books on the local area interesting and useful. We will certainly recommend the cottage to friends.

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!

Elgar’s spirit

As I go upstairs to bed, I always think of Little Ed.

How his childhood days had led to making music in his head.

We’ve loved this house, and all have felt with ev’ry room,

and views and sounds, that Elgar’s spirit still abounds.

So, thank you Guy from one and all,


that’s John and Jane, and Ruth and Paul.
