A real gem of a getaway nestling at the foot of the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire this modern, clean 2 bedroom annex provides guests with a great rural retreat from which to explore the local area. We are right on the Worcestershire/Gloucestershire/Herefordshire border with all 3 cathedral city's within easy reach. Eastnor Castle is just a stones throw away with the pretty market town of Ledbury less than 10mins away. The Malvern Hills are on the doorstep and are popular with walkers, mountain bikers and those who love the great outdoors - sample the FREE spring water from over 30 wells dotted around the hills! Visit places which inspired Edward Elgar to write his music, or take in a show at the popular Malvern Theatre which attracts many big names from stage and screen. There is always something going on at the Three Counties Showground or down by the river at Upton Upon Severn with its numerous festivals. Less than 30 minutes away is the regency spa town of Cheltenham which is famous for its racing, fabulous for shopping, cultural and dining too. We are just 5 minutes off junction 2 of the M50 so not too remote. Fans of the BBC period drama Doctor Thorne? Visit Eastnor Castle which opens at Easter. The exterior was used as Courcy Castle and the interior as Boxhall Hill and Tyntesfield which is a National Trust property was used as Boxhall Hill exterior and is an hours drive away.
We purchased our house 'High Trees' which sits on 13 acres a couple of years ago having fallen in love with the setting despite viewing it on a cold, dark, damp January afternoon.
Since then we have renovated the main house and during this time we (mummy, daddy & 3 kids) all lived in the annex aka 'Low Trees' so can personally vouch for its comfortability, now it seems such as shame to not share it with others :-)
Sara Nelmes purchased this bungalow in 2012
Fab views of the Malvern Hills, rural yet not remote.
Your holiday home was really cosy, we loved all the wildlife and local countryside - Lauren & Tom, February 2014
A lovely little property, I really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony sipping a cool beer after a day walking on the hills - Alvin Baldwin, Exmouth, May 2014
We had such a lovely, relaxing week in this cosy, comfortable property. It feels as if you are in the middle of nowhere but you are literally only five minutes from the M50 giving easy access to Cheltenham, Gloucester and Worcester. It was also great to have the town of Ledbury close by with its little independent shops and places to eat and to have the Malvern hills on your doorstep for all levels of walking - lunch afterwards in Mac & Jac's in Malvern is a great way to round off a good walk. Gloucester Quays shopping outlet is good and you don't have to be religious to be amazed by Gloucester Cathedral which is wonderful inside. Holloways home and garden furniture in Suckley sells some lovely things and the food in their Glasshouse Cafe is excellent. Sara, Matt and their family were the perfect hosts - just such nice people and extremely friendly but without being intrusive. We would like to thank them again for the tasty bacon, sausages and eggs which we enjoyed for our breakfasts. We would have no hesitation in returning to this property and hope to do so in the future.
We have just returned from a lovely 10 days’ stay at the bungalow at Berrow. The bungalow is very well and thoughtfully equipped, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Sara and family were delightful - extremely welcoming, really helpful and very informative and enthusiastic about the area.
The location is convenient for several interesting towns – eg Malvern, Hereford, Ledbury, and various attractions – walking in the Malvern Hills, Sudeley Castle (a bit longer journey but worth it, particularly for a wet day as there’s a lot to see inside the house and church), Tewkesbury Abbey, Croome, the Morgan Factory (tours available but need to be booked in advance, but well worth doing), Goodrich Castle (good audio tour, best done on a fine day as nearly all in the open).
We particularly enjoyed meals at the local pub (The Duke of York) – the food is really good pub fare and the staff are very friendly and welcoming; the Olive Tree in Ledbury has delicious Italian food and great service.
All in all a restful and enjoyable holiday in a lovely property.
Stayed for 11 nights in Sara's bungalow, everything was absosulty perfect. Location was
Good, beds comfy, plenty of space for the four us who stayed - the bungalow had everything we needed and Sara/Matt made sure we didn't go without. Would Recommend.
Such friendly and helpful hosts. We enjoyed walking the nearby footpaths and also the Malverns. Visited Tewkesbury , Great Malvern, and Croome. De;icious meal at the Blue Orchid in Ledbury. Also visited the Library where there was interesing information about the old building. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone else.
We loved our first visit. The accommodation is excellent. Berrow is a hamlet situated just off a motorway ( not at all noticeable ) and therefore very accessible. It is also well located for visits to the Malverns and a number of towns/cities within an hours drive eg Worcester, Hereford, Pershore, Tewkesbury, Malvern, Ledbury.
The annex is well appointed and very comfortable and the verandah at the back was a wonderful place to sit on a summer evening. Sarah and family made us very welcome and were very friendly. Matthew is a butcher and he supplies guests with a package of bacon, sausages and eggs all of superb quality. The drive is spacious and very secure behind its automatic gates. There is a small general store just over a mile away in Pendock and supermakets are only a few minutes away in Ledbury.
We found plenty to do and were far from exhausting the areas attractions so we need another visit to this highly recommended accommodation.
Thanks Sarah and Matthew for our lovely, relaxing holiday.
