The High Ground was in a great location for access to the Malvern Hills, set in a very peaceful rural spot with a nearby cuckoo announcing spring and chickens running round the grounds.. There was a homemade cake and fresh eggs waiting for us which was a nice touch. The apartment was comfortable and clean and Joy, the owner was very helpful.
A very comfortable and quiet place to stay.. Nice spacious area to relax and an excellent place, at the southern end of the Malverns, to access the glorious walks. As a loft conversion our only wish would have been to have more open views of the wonderful countryside around the property.
Comfortable cottages.. Kitchen small, but the most made of the space. Owners courteous.
Not quite as described.. Lovely place to stay for a few days, area great with plenty of nice places to visit and there are dog friendly pubs within walking distance of accommodation.
I wrongly assumed from the description the combination microwave/oven meant there was a small oven but there wasn’t only a microwave/ grill so quite difficult to cook anything (only two ring on hob as stated).
The accommodation is also approached via a very bumpy albeit short track which I only found when I received the key collection info and I am very glad having found this out we decided not to go in our sport cars as we’d of likely caused damage to it.
For dog owners the private lawned area is not enclosed
Lovely area for walking off the door step, lovely home and views,
Good pub food near by,
The position of the apartment is lovely and peaceful, within easy reach of Malvern and the Three Counties Showground.. Made to feel very welcome.
Clean, airy, spacious - plus a dish of eggs from the chickens outside and a cake to welcome us.. It was perfect for our needs and as a base for exploring The Malvern and The Cotswold Hills.
The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with stunning views of the countryside.. The owner left lovely finishing touches that made you feel more at home. I will definitely recommend this property to my friends.
Beast from the East and Storm Emma struck part way through my visit.. Joy the owner couldn't have been more helpful in ensuring I was ok. The apartment was cosy warm despite the low temperatures, comfortable, clean, cheerful and well equipped. A very peaceful location which was just what I wanted. The weather didn't spoil my stay. Only problem I had was I couldn't find it on arrival and had to be rescued by Joy. I suggest that from Welland it is easier to continue past the common to the Robin Hood pub then turn right onto New Road (signposted). Continue for approx .75 of a mile, pass the marked road junction on the right,, then turn right at the second track on the right, cross the cattle grid then you are there.
Most enjoyable break,accomodation was excellent .. Very gracious hosts, location was perfect.
Booked last minute and advisor (Annette) ensured owner was contacted and everything was completed efficiently..
