Stayed here for a week during which my daughter got married at Birtsmorton Court. A great house for that purpose but also a lovely house in a great location so we very much hope to return to enjoy exploring the area more.
Loads of space inside and out and the house is really well done.
The lodge was extremely spacious for our 3 family get together. The beautifully kept enclosed garden was perfect for the young children to play safely outdoors in the spring sunshine and was ideal for the Easter Egg hunt. The lodge is very well equipped and extremely clean. Beds and sofas are most comfortable. Showers are powerful with plenty of hot water for all of us and the super sized bath created a wonderful bath time experience for the children. Tranquil and peaceful location a truly rural retreat. If you want a break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the place for you.
Just returned from a pre Christmas Family Christmas :)
Extended family of children grandchildren and our dog all met up for an early Christmas.
Fantastic 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom accommodation, great standard of fittings and enough and more pots, pans, plates etc. together with a large double oven.
Best feature was the very large dining table which could comfortably seat 10 in the very large kitchen diner.
Out of the way remote quiet and tranquil. Lots of walks from the door to explore the surrounding countryside, but you do need to drive to get anywhere. We had Waitrose delivery which worked perfectly.
Half a dozen pubs within 5 or 6 mile radius although we didn't try any as we were very safety conscious with Covid concerns.
Room to park 4 or 5 cars on the gated driveway and so much space around the huge lawned garden.
Already talking about next year.
Our second visit to this lovely property.. Excellent accommodation, well equipped and clean and we love the peaceful situation of Beesoni.
Mrs Kingseller, September 2020
Beesoni Lodge is a very clean, comfortable place to stay.. Laura was fantastic, she made sure we were settled in and I had a chance to contact her during our stay (to ask if I could feed the sheep) and she was very efficient. The location is peaceful, but remember you are on a working farm, the views are lovely, we made use of the outdoor seating every day. The kitchen is well equipped, we didn't want for anything. There were plenty of teabags, coffee, sugar and fresh milk. The accommodation was spotless, everything was cleaned to a high standard. There were bottles of hand sanitizer at the front door. We very much enjoyed our stay and a big thank you to Laura for making us feel so welcome.
Miss O'donnell, September 2020
An amazing property.. Every facility you could wish for. We had a fantastic time and would thoroughly recommend the wonderful barn and the extremely helpful host.

The property and surroundings are amazing. The extensive garden includes your own private wood. A walk either way from the property give fantastic views across two different valleys. Stayed here with our extended family loved by all ages. Thanks for a brilliant holiday and amazing facilities.
Mrs Eggleton, August 2020
We would highly recommend Bessoni Lodge! An amazing lodge, beautifully looked after, everything you could possibly want and need in an holiday accommodation! Fantastic country setting, so safe for children with sheep and cows for neighbours!!! We had the best time, Laura (owner) and her family were so helpful with any requests we had during our stay! Great base to visit nearby National Trusts, plus beautiful walks on your doorstep! This holiday was a back up for us as our holiday abroad was cancelled due to COVID- 19, but I’m so glad we found Bessoni Lodge through Natasha @ Sykes cottages - we all had a great holiday!
Miss Kelly, July 2020
Excellent house for 3 generations.. Very well kitted out....we were able to cook every night and bake with the grandchildren... and very comfortable....only tiny tiny concern was free range dog(s?) coming on to the drive and leaving poo...the kids were very young
Dr Statham, November 2019
This was an ideal venue for our family gathering.. It was warm and comfortable with plenty of space, both inside and out - the woodland den and the cows with their claves, just over the fence, were particular favourites with our youngsters.
Our party consisted of six adults, three children and a small dog.. The accommodation is fantastic, well stocked and maintained to a very high standard and is child friendly. We were entertained by the young lambs running around in the adjoining field as we played croquet on the front lawn. This accommodation was a great base for day trips to the Malvern Hills and the other varied activities which we managed to pack into the week.
The cottage was spacious, comfortable and in a nice quiet location with lots of space including private woods for young kids..
Lovely place, well equipped.. Beautiful grounds. Would book again.
The cottage we stayed in was absolutely stunning, even better than we expected! Would absolutely book through Sykes again.
Situated in a beautiful part of England with in easy reach of places of interest
Great property for a large party.. Property has everything you needs. Good location for exploring The Malvern hills area and the Vale of Evesham. Good property for relaxing with good walks around the country lanes. Good views across to the Malvern Hills. The owner is very friendly and helpful and is on hand if there are any problems. We enjoyed our week there.
Bessoni Lodge was well equipped with everything you could want.. Plenty of room inside and out.
Beesoni Lodge was very clean, had extremely good facilities and was very well maintained and appointed.. The only mild downside we felt was that three of the sofas in the lounge were obviously past their best and were low, sagging and uncomfortable........they could do with being replaced.
Excellent family holiday home, plenty of space for all.. Best equipped place we have stayed in over the years.
The location is beautiful and facilities are great.. Perfect for three families.
Fantastic property.. Very comfortable and well maintained. Lovely beds and very nice kitchen/dining area.
A gathering of siblings and partners Fantastic countryside and walks.. Comfortable, light and airy. Family room slightly small.
Beautiful location, high quality accommodation and superbly fitted out and equipped.. A very relaxing and peaceful stay. Can thoroughly recommend!
Fantastic time with our family.. Great place to stay, very quiet and so relaxing. Beautiful grounds and great for all ages.
The accommodation was very spacious and the setting was peaceful and beautiful.
We were able to totally unwind and recharge our batteries.
We enjoyed visiting various attractions in the area.
We would certainly book this accommodation again and we would thoroughly recommend it to our family and friends.
What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The setting was beautiful and the kids loved the cows and seep in the field surrounding us. My only negative point is that we weren't able to stay longer!! Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to stay in the area.
Lots of space for the entire family. Big communal areas plus an outside area. Very quiet and peaceful yet not too far from nearby towns.
We couldn't fault Beesoni Lodge. It's a lovely roomy house with quality decor and furnishings with absolutely everything you could possibly need. We were able to arrange to take a second dog on request and had a very comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this place.
This was a panic choice after a previous booking fell through at the last moment, but ultimately couldn't be happier that this was the case. Considering there was less than a day's notice before arrival, both the owners and agent were speedy and efficient with the booking, and the lodge was in immaculate condition when we arrived.
The lodge is more spacious than the photos suggest, decent parking for multiple cars, and the kitchen comes equipped with pretty much everything you need - particularly love that there was almost a whole cupboard devoted to gravy boats! The Jacuzzi bath is thoroughly recommended, and in the grip of winter the underfloor bathroom heating was amazing.
Be warned though - if you're tempted to go for a walk in the direction of what look like small lakes in the distance, you might actually just find yourself wading knee-deep in flooded fields...thank God for the laundry facilities!
A lovely large property which contributed to making our first family Christmas in two decades such a wonderful experience. It had helpful pleasant owners who sorted out any issues but left us to our own devices to enjoy our time.
The accommodation was of a very high standard, the care taken by the owners was excellent . The whole place was spot on, quiet and very peaceful.
The images on the site do not do this beautiful property justice. We were so impressed with the high standard, everything was provided for the most comfortable stay. When we arrived, the owners were helpful and polite, the lodge was so warm and cosy. The beds were particularly comfortable and the kitchen was a beautiful and sociable place to be.
The property was stunning and so well equipped. It was set against stunning scenery and in a beautiful location.
Plenty of space for several couples/families a large garden for the family dog to run in.
Everything was lovely, a home from home. Comfortable beds, fluffy towels and plenty of hot water for showers. The garden is great for a quiet relax and safe for the youngsters to enjoy.
This is our 5th visit to Beesoni Lodge with 3 generations of our family and this year our pet Labrador and once again we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property is situated in wonderful countryside with outstanding views, there is plenty of room to spread out comfortably. The finish throughout the lodge is of a high quality, well equipped with everything you could possibly need to hand, the garden and grounds are excellent and beautifully kept, many thanks once again to the owners we hope to stay again soon.
The rural location was absolute bliss, without compromising our access to the nearby villages, historic towns and cities.
Loved this house and the location.
A great cottage with space for all of us. It was really clean, well kept and in a beautiful area.
Liked the location and style of building. There is a nice pub with excellent food 10mins away and dogs allowed too!
The Lodge was very good. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen, which was well equipped and was the centre of our family break. There were excellent walks from the Lodge and it was a great place to rest up in the evenings.
Everywhere was spotless and the house was well equipped.
This is our fourth year at Beesoni Lodge and accommodates our 3 generations of family very well. The lodge is spacious, well equipped and situated in a fabulous location with plenty of places to visit within an hours drive. We have had a great time once again, many thanks to the owners, we hope to stay again soon.
Beautiful place to stay, perfect spot and everything we needed. There was a lot of attention to detail. It was lovely having all the towels supplied and it was spotlessly clean. Loved the underfloor heating in the bathrooms.
Super location for us, enough space and all ages catered for. Thought of most things, allowed us to take more than one dog - so extremely accommodating. Had a fabulous time and a fair price too! Many thanks to the owners.
Perfect stay. Great living space, well equipped kitchen and fantastic garden space for the children. Thank you Beesoni Lodge!
The lodge is really suited to family gatherings and we loved the space available for each of ours. It was ideally situated for walking too.
Superb barn conversion. All on one level which was perfect for wheelchair and toddler use! Fantastic large kitchen with plenty of space around the central table for all getting together over a meal.
The accomodation was spacious, plenty of storage, the kithcen was well equipped and the garden was delightful and safe to play in.
Absolutely beautiful lodge with all amenities thought of! Gorgeous location, lovely and spacious. A perfect setting for our university reunion!! We definitely intend to stay again.
8 members of our family stayed here for a week, there is more than enough room for everyone to spread out comfortably, the finish is to an amazingly high standard - spa bath and underfloor heating in the bathrooms! Wow! Everything we needed in the kitchen, more than enough utensils/crockery etc. Comfy beds, comfy sofas, lovely fluffy towels, a very very relaxing place to be. Thoroughly recommended.
The property was well equipped and clean. Lovely large kitchen with big table which was a great place for everyone to congregate.
4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 with twin beds. Spa bath was very nice addition. Good size lounge with plenty of seating.
Location was very rural and peaceful with lovely countryside, despite this was quite easy to find.
Only slight complaint was their was no remote control for the DVD player so you could only play or stop and not select different options on a DVD.
Lovely cottage, location nice and peaceful. Well equipped and furnished. Particularly liked the spa bath.
We stayed at Beesoni as it was the perfect place to spend our Wedding Weekend as although we only live 30 minutes away we needed accommodation for 4 couples with plenty of space and we all agreed it was a perfect base for our wedding in Malvern .
Very well equipped, enough comfy chairs for all 8 adults and a very social kitchen. We all agreed it would be lovely to retrun.
Everything was perfect - we were getting married in Malvern and used the cottage for us and 6 friends to be together over the weekend. It was so fresh, clean and huge rooms, particularly good was plenty of armchairs/sofas so we could all sit together without having to rearrange furniture.
A beautiful place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday work commitments, a lovely location to sit back and let the world go by. So spacious and well equipped, we really fell in love with Beesoni Lodge.
A group of 8 of us stayed here in May and every single one of us loved the place. The kitchen is well equipped and the main thing that struck me is the cleanliness. We have stayed in several similar places and I always feel it necessary to clean before I can settle but here I didnt need to.
Beds are comfortable and the lodge is very spacious.
Would definitely stay again.
By far and away the best holiday home we have ever rented. The owners had thought of everything to help us enjoy our holiday. They even supplied a Radio Times. We have recommended it to friends who are about to book a break there.
We loved the property, it is beautifully done and has every convenience available.
Beesoni Lodge is a beautiful property and I can quite honestly say we felt at home there from the minute our holiday began. The property is very spacious and spotless. My sister is a chef and she was most impressed with the kitchen facilities. The surrounding area is lovely and it feels so calming just to be there. A gorgeous place and we hope to stay there again.
The property was well designed and fitted to a high standard. It was large enough for us to have a good family holiday without feeling cramped. Everything down to minor items were in the lodge, so we didn't want for anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would go there again.
We liked everything about the holiday, the property was wonderful and in such a nice setting. The weather was fantastic, summer had come early. We also appreciated the flowers, welcome pack and the bathroom miniature packs were a nice touch. We all agreed we would want to return. A lovely way to spend my 50th!
The accommodation was superb and couldn't be faulted. The little touches (fresh flowers, milk, TV times etc) were lovely too.
We found the lodge perfect.everything was of the best quality, we could not fault a thing.we met the owners who were so friendly. We will definately be returning
Peaceful, bucolic setting. Terrace to enjoy the Autumn sunshine.
It was just what we were looking for. Beautiful location and the property was excellent, very high spec.
The property was ideal for a family
get together with a lovely big kitchen
for chats and meals around the large
table. A great time was had by all!

Well equipt and spacious this place has the wow factor! Everything provided from the linen and fluffy white towels to a well fitted kitchen complete with coffee maker and wine fridge! We couldnt of asked for more and all enjoyed the week long party to celebrate my sons 21st birthday!
This is an immaculately appointed bungalow. All the kitchen equipment, fittings etc are very good quality and they all work. There are acres of space for everyone, and lots of places to 'retire' to and do the crossword etc. Loved it! I've been before and I'll go again.
A lovely location in the country with a great garden! The layout of the barn was great and has excellent bathrooms.
The cottage had such a lot of space for family entertaining! We loved cooking together in the fantastic kitchen and all of us sitting around the kitchen table for dinner. We also enjoyed the outdoor space for games and BBQ!
It was a great cottage for children with no stairs and plenty of outside space to run around in. Lovely place to spend time with extended family.
There was plenty of space to enable us to enjoy privacy from the extended family when we required it. The kitchen is exceptionally well appointed and made an ideal 'hub' for joining with other members of the party at the end of the day.
A high standard of accommodation and a peaceful location.
We have had a lovely week at Castlemorton, three generations of one family staying at Beesoni Lodge. Brilliant location, very quiet and peaceful, plenty of places to visit nearby. The accommodation is of a very high standard, very spacious, clean and all amenities were provided. The outside area was superb. I Would definitely recommend this accommodation.
The lodge was fantastic, it was beautiful and had everything we could possibly need and all to such a high standard. Would definitely recommend it, and would love to go back some time. Thank you!
A wonderful stay in a brilliant location at a superb barn conversion.
Accommodation and layout of the property was ideal for two or three different families and if you were lucky, which we were not, you could keep the grandchildren at the other end of the bungalow!
Mr Mrs Soutar
This was our second visit this year to Beesoni Lodge. Since April there have already been some great improvements to the property - especially the new huge bed in the first bedroom! It was really comfortable and so big!! Also, the new pine dresser in the kitchen meant there was more room to store groceries in the kitchen drawers. As before, the Lodge was immaculate and a great place to stay! Such a lovely place to stay that it doesn't matter if the weather is bad - there is lots of room so you don't feel on top of one another if you can't go outside. That's especially important when you have two big dogs as well!
Equipped to a very high standard.
We all loved the location, and the privacy - the accommodation is excellent.
Everything was a first class standard together with additional extras (flowers, milk etc) which were very much appreciated. The whole experience at Beesoni Lodge was fabulous and we would be delighted to recommend this accommodation.
The accommodation was of a high quality standard. The location was very peaceful and relaxing. Overall, I would recommend this property to anyone and would like to congratulate the owners for doing such a good job on their barn conversion. We had a very comfortable stay. Well done!
The quality of the property was outstanding, the little extras were so helpful. The outdoor area was superb, a little copse, huge lawns, great picnic tables all perfect for a holiday with 3 under 4's! And suitably luxurious to keep the adults happy.
We had a fantastic week celebrating our Ruby Wedding anniversary with our family. Beesoni Lodge was amazing; everything you wanted and the owners were so pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend a holiday at Beesoni Lodge. The owners had thought of everything right down to flowers, milk and Radio Times, excellent!
A lovely week in ideal location, garden and woodland ideal for grandchildren to play in
Beesoni Lodge is gorgeous! It is very spacious and clean and all the amenities were provided and were best quality. The walks from the Lodge were great - our dogs especially loved them and the views of the Malvern Hills was superb.
We will definitely stay again. It is really difficult to find properties of this quality with the required number of bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and will take 2 dogs.
The property was a great place to come and stay with the family, the grandchildren loved the grounds and we felt it was very safe for them.
Mr Mrs Soutar
Very spacious and home-from-home cottage - the floors were easy to keep clean (we have two dogs!) - we particularly liked being able to walk from the cottage to open countryside with views of the Malvern hills. The owners were extremely friendly and the cottage was immaculate. It was a good spot for touring the area but really secluded and peaceful and very much in the countryside. We will be coming again.
The Marsh family chose to stay in Castlemorton to celebrate our parents diamond wedding anniversary. We chose this area as half the family live in West Wales and the other half live near London.
We had a lovely weekend which we all enjoyed, including our dog. We will probably go back next year.
This is an extremely comfortable house. Everything was beautifully presented and the owner was really pleasant to deal with.
The barn is beautifully converted, there is loads of space, and it is fully equipped with everything you could need. The owner was really friendly and recommended local pubs and walks. Would definitely come here again - wish we could have stayed longer!
Great place, tons of space, really well furnished and really well equipped.
Fantastic location and a wonderful place to stay. Thank you very much, had a great time.
This is beautiful property, recently renovated to a very high standard and very spacious.
We had two families together for a week and the way the property is laid out gave us plenty of living space as well as some privacy when needed.
We spent much of our time around the beautiful kithen table playing games whilst someone would be preparing food, making tea, or just chatting.
The property is situated in wonderful contry side offering great views and great walks.
I would highly recommend the cottage.
We had a lovely week at Castlemorton. The property was clean and well equiped. The bedlinen was of the best quality and the duvets pure luxury!
For a family this is the ideal venue for a get together.
Top venue, really quiet, comfortable, close to the Malverns. Great facilities and warm too, which was useful in March, though we were blessed wtih mostly sun while we were there.
Local pubs good, but not walkable for an evening unless you're a keen walker and light drinker!
Hope to go again.
The property is lovely for large family gatherings. A very clean, warm and spacious welcoming.
Quiet location with beautiful views. Perfect for disabled/older people as all on one level.
We were fortunate as a large group of varying ages to be in such a lovely good sized property which gave us all plenty of room to breath. The large area around the house was ideal for the children. All rooms were a good size and the kitchen was very well equipped. Bathrooms and showers were particularly well presented. The setting was ideal for access to the Malverns and nearby towns, so we didn't have to travel far.
A very pleasant and spacious property. The owners were very helpful.
Excellent standard of accommodation, all well equipped, plenty of space and good facilities.
Beesoni Lodge was absolutely fantastic, the property was huge as were the grounds, with walks straight from the door you couldn't ask for anything better. The owners had thought of everything and it was spotlessly clean. The area itself was lovely plenty to see and do could have done with 2 weeks to see everything, better still could live there!
A great place for a family gathering!
Fantastic cottage with ample supplies and an extensive garden. Beds were also very comfy!
Beautiful and quiet location, lovely warm accommodation.
Gorgeous bathrooms and big comfy sofas. Great for a group of friends. Very friendly owners.
The cottage is in a beautiful, private location and fitted out to a very high standard. It has a very light and airy feel and is very spacious. We found the cottage was more than adequate for our needs and provided lots of space for us to find quiet times when needed!
We have had an amazing Christmas in Beesoni Lodge. The lodge is set in wonderful countryside, with glorious walks,directly from the property. It is totally equipped with everything you could need, toasty warm and the layout couldn't have been better for the needs of 4 generations. We would highly recommend it. Very many thanks!
The accommodation was excellent, and the welcome very friendly. The bathrooms were superb, and the heating just right. I would thoroughly recommend the property.
Relaxed atmosphere in a comfortable, warm cottage.
The cottage was absolutely top notch and beautifully situated for a peaceful stay with easy access to lots of good days out in Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
We had a fabulous week.
The barn has been converted to a very high standard. Our party was made up of four generations, who all really enjoyed every aspect of the holiday and would all like to return again in the near future.
Wonderful walking area with many footpaths. Everyone from 1 to 92 enjoyed our stay. All excellent.
This property was ideal for a family holiday - great garden, woods and in a lovely quiet location.
The standard of the property and its fixtures and fittings were of the highest standard we have ever stayed in.
Great for the children. Nice walks from the front door. A very enjoyable weekend away.
The cottage was superb and I have never stayed in any holiday let with such quality facilities. The kitchen and bathrooms were outstanding. We cooked a 4 course meal for 10 people with absolutely no problems whatsoever! The owner, Mrs Smith, was also very friendly and made us feel very welcome when we arrived.
We loved the location. Set in beautiful open countryside this converted barn had fantastic access to footpaths and walks in the local area. The barn itself is luxuriously kitted out, the kitchen is of a very high standard and the bathrooms and bedrooms are extremely comfortable, perfect for relaxing after walking all day. It was perfect, would recommend.
