    Set on the grounds of one other holiday cottage and formerly used as a watermill, The Old Mill sits amongst 30 acres of stunning surroundings and provides a peaceful and tranquil escape for two. An idyllic waterfall and brook flow next to the cottage, with front-row seats from the comfort of the private wood-fired hot tub. Inside, highlights include a cosy living space with biomass heating and a beautiful bedroom with breathtaking views. Should you wish to explore the area, Malvern Hills AONB, Worcester and the Cotswolds are all under an hour away.

  • The space

    Set over three floors, this delightful cottage retains many original features including exposed wooden beams and rustic flagstone flooring.

    The property begins with an open-plan country-style kitchen, equipped with all the essentials including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. After a day in the countryside, gather around the two-seater dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal and a crisp glass of wine.

    Meanwhile, the comfortable living room is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Nestle into the two-seater sofa while you enjoy the warmth from the biomass heating and your favourite film on the Freesat TV (complete with Roku Express). There is also a cosy armchair and a window seat so you can admire the idyllic views.

    Venture upstairs to the first floor where you will find the warm and inviting king-size bedroom with its sumptuous soft furnishings, ample storage space and en-suite WC. The luxurious bathroom with a slipper bath and separate shower is located on the second floor.

    Outside, you will have access to a private lawned garden and patio with a bistro set for alfresco dining. Spend your days exploring the 30 acres of grounds and evenings relaxing in the wood-fired hot tub.
