Idyllic large holiday country cottage set in 5 acres - near Malvern. Ideal place for the weekend.
Hanley Swan, United Kingdom
A beautiful holiday cottage, situated in the country on the edge of the Cotswolds, ideally suited for getting together with colleagues, friends and family. With 5 bedrooms the cottage sleeps 9 people.
This self catering accommodation's setting is perfect – sitting in a large garden with rolling lawns and views towards the Malvern Hills and surrounded by 5 acres of fields where you’ll find horses grazing. It lies outside the pretty Worcestershire village of Hanley Swan where there's an excellent local pub and a beautiful village green with a lily-covered pond.
This self catering holiday cottage's origins date back to Elizabethan times, as you will see from some of the original oak ships beams visible throughout the house. Over the centuries it has been gradually enlarged with sympathetic additions and adaptations so that today it is a comfortable 5 bedroom country getaway - ideally suited for getting together with friends and family.
Inside the aim has been to combine comfort, style and practicality.
You will find a great light filled 30ft+ kitchen – which invariably becomes the hub of the house. It has granite worktops, stainless steel range cooker, breakfast area, table to seat 10+ and just about everything a keen cook needs, including a large wine rack. French windows lead directly onto the garden.
Adjoining the kitchen is the large oak beamed sitting room with comfy sofas to sink into and fireplaces at each end – a sizeable wood burning stove at one end and at the other a double-sided fireplace leading to the reading/games/TV area.
Cloakroom and utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer
5 comfortable bedrooms – 2 double bedrooms with king size beds , 1 single bedroom with a double bed and 2 bedrooms with adult size bunk beds. There is also a cot and an additional put you up bed if required.
