The Nest at Winnall is a unique, luxury self-catering holiday cottage dating from the early 19th Century, situated close to the beautiful Wyre Forest in the heart of rural Worcestershire, England. The cottage sits adjacent to Winnall House, an imposing Grade II listed Georgian manor farmhouse, and is nestled in a small valley of unspoilt countryside which slopes down to the River Severn.
The Nest has been lovingly restored by its family owners, retaining many period cottage features but with all the modern luxuries you would expect. The interior has a chic retro design feel, with many vintage details, so you can truly 'step back in time' and forget all the stresses of daily life during your stay here.
On your arrival at The Nest, a walled gateway will take you through to your own private, enclosed courtyard garden. The patio area has been made from original quarry tiles reclaimed from the old cottage floor, and with its atmospheric lighting it is just perfect for secluded evening barbeques.
Sleeping up to four people, The Nest at Winnall has two bedrooms - one with a king size bed, the other with twin beds. Both have 1000 pocket sprung mattresses as well as soft cotton goosefeather and down duvets and pillows. One room has views over the private courtyard and the other looks out over the lawns of the main house.
There are two bathrooms in The Nest - a spacious and modern ensuite for the king room and a large family bathroom which also serves as an ensuite for the twin room. This has a roll-top bath and original Victorian washstand. Both bathrooms have fully enclosed showers with vintage-style fittings, heated towel rails and of course... thick, white, fluffy Egyptian cotton towels.
In the large and open plan kitchen diner 1950's fabulousness can be found in the retro-styled appliances and vintage artefacts. Complementing those is a clean and fresh modern fitted kitchen, which contains everything you will need during your stay (electric oven/hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine/tumble dryer, kettle, toaster and also a DAB radio with Bluetooth connection). The midcentury feel has been brought through to the dining area, which has room to seat four people very comfortably.
The cosy double-aspect lounge has a real wood burner and sumptuous, warm decor. It has a 32" widescreen TV, Freeview and BluRay DVD player and also free Wi-Fi available. On warm summer days the French Doors can be opened out onto a pretty patio which overlooks the lawns of the main house. The retro look is carried through to this room with period-style furniture and original midcentury wall lights.
We love families! We can provide everything you need, including a cot, highchair, baby monitor, steriliser, change mat, potty, toilet seat, step stool, bathmat, car booster seat and bed guards. There's a full range of plastic plates, bowls, cups and cutlery, as well as a training cup and bib for the little ones. Of course we also have a collection of childrens books, games, toys and DVDs.
Included in your stay is a really *welcome* Welcome Pack - milk, butter, home-baked bread, free range eggs from our own chickens, home-made jam/chutney, seasonal fruit from the garden (when available), home-baked pie/cake and a bottle of wine.
