Local Attractions

The longest-running classical musical festival in the world is the triennial Three Choirs Festival held at Worcester Cathedral and the arts are well-represented by productions staged at the nearby Swan Theatre, Huntingdon Hall and Malvern Theatres. There are numerous venues for gigs and live music across the city.

The world-famous Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is still blended and bottled in the city. The Royal Worcester Porcelain Museum is a two minute walk away and is located on the China Works Severn Street site, visited by Admiral Lord Nelson in 1802 where he placed a large order for the ‘Horatia service’. Unfortunately, he never received it all before being mortally shot at the moment of his great triumph: Trafalgar 1805.

The annual Hay-on-Wye literature festival which former US President Bill Clinton called ‘The Woodstock of the mind’ is about an hour away.

As far as restaurants, pubs, clubs and bars are concerned there are many. Most of them are within easy walking distance. Enjoy a pint in Worcester’s oldest pub, The Cardinal’s Hat which dates from the 14th century. Explore the wine and cocktail bars dotted along the medieval streets, or enjoy a fine dining in one of the city’s great restaurants; many of which use locally sourced produce, from a county increasingly renowned as a home for food and drink.

Worcester is reckoned to have some of the best shopping in the West Midlands, with a superb mix of high quality brand name stores and independent artisans to choose from.

The city has several impressive sporting venues. County cricket is a short walk across the River Severn to the new and improved New Road Ground. The University Arena – also across the river – hosts British Basketball League matches. Professional rugby union side Worcester Warriors play at Sixways Stadium located at junction 6 of the M5. Worcester racecourse is also within walking distance and the best jump racing in the world can be found at Cheltenham adjacent to the Cotswolds, 25 miles away.

There are some fantastic, traffic free riverside walks in Worcester. The Malvern Hills, The Cotswolds and The Shropshire Hills –all Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – are all within easy reach, and boast some of the best scenery, walking and activities of all levels anywhere in Britain.

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!
