The
Experience

Way up a simple track, your stone-walled, stone-tiled hideaway was built almost entirely from reclaimed materials. Much of it crafted by Ellie, who will greet you on arrival and lives in a 16th century timber-framed house on the estate.

Inside is open plan and easy and filled with fresh flowers. Recline on your leather chesterfield, toes directed at a wood-burner stacked with logs from the woods, or sit out on the veranda with Ellie’s homemade cake or a glass of wine – there are magnificent views across open pastures to the Teme and Kyre valleys.

Venture further to foodie Ludlow, book-lined Hay-on-Wye and the grand industrial heritage that is Ironbridge. Or you can take to the slow life on the steam railway, stride out on the Mortimer Trail, meander through Herefordshire villages. Return to much tranquillity.

Reviews

Quiet, beautiful, clean, characterful and very comfortable. We loved the place. Superbly equipped and lovely touches with pieces of pottery pretty china and lots to read. We did not really want to go out! Stunning views out over farmland, easy access to super walks for the dogs and Ellie the hostess is completely charming. The homemade cake was delicious and the whole experience was amazing value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend this unique property to anyone.

Location

The neighbourhood

This bucolic corner of England is at the borders of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire, and there are walks from the door through footpaths and bridleways where you can spot plenty of wildlife, including rabbits, badgers, buzzards and woodpeckers. The nearest town for stocking up is Tenbury Wells, three miles away: as well as independent shops and a supermarket, there are some good eating places: Pembroke House serves excellent food in a traditional 16th century pub with a garden.

Introducing

Ellie Van Straaten

Ellie van Straaten loves hosting guests at the cottages, and nothing is too much trouble: ask her about stocking the freezer with homemade meals before you arrive. The cottages are a labour of love; she designed and hand-crafted much of the interiors herself.
