Details

We welcome you to a quiet, comfortable, self-contained wing of our 18th century farmhouse and enclosed small private garden with garden furniture adjoining our meadows on the village edge.

We are in a really favourable scenic area in Eckington, Nr. Pershore, with a waymarked footpath around the river Avon which runs at the bottom of our meadows, with free course fishing on request. The river Avon footpath is also part of the 88 mile Shakespeares Avon Way and we are only six miles from its confluence with the River Severn at Tewkesbury. A walk down the lane will bring you to the River and Loch Gates, used by boats on the river - always a site of interest. We have wonderful views from each bedroom of Bredon Hill, the most northerly outlier of the Cotswolds, The Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds.

Our own village centre of Eckington is less than five minutes walk away and has a very good village shop, two inns which both serve food, an ancient Norman Church and a War Memorial Cross depicting the sadness of lost lives during the Two World Wars. On the outskirts of the village there is an excellently equipped free recreation ground, the children love it. Pershore, Evesham ,Tewkesbury and Upton Upon Severn are all nearby small market towns and each boasts a beautiful Church or Abbey, and interesting, scenic river walks. River trips are available from Evesham on the River Avon and from Tewkesbury and Upton upon Severn in season. Worcester, Cheltenham and Gloucester are a little further afield for other attractions and shopping.

Pershore has an excellent indoor market that opens from Wednesday to Saturday each week and Tewkesbury's open market opens on Wednesday and Saturday. Tewkesbury is a lovely Old Tudor Town not to be missed with plenty of good places to eat. Both Pershore and Tewkesbury have excellent public swimming baths and other facilities.

Why not visit the renowned village of Broadway (approx.14 miles away)? Don't miss Broadway Tower, with such wonderful views and an excellent restaurant.

There are several old estates nearby, some National Trust, in Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Herefordshire - all offering wonderful days out with most having dining facilities and picnic areas and most interesting scenic walks in gardens, grounds with rivers and pools and lovely woodlands to enjoy.

Croome Court in Worcestershire had its scaffolding removed in 2016 and is celebrating the tercentiary of 'Capability Brown' who designed the wonderful waterways and extensive grounds it boasts and should not be missed. The inside of the house also has so much to offer with the return of some of its old tapestries. Its war time memories are being much revived with several of its old wooden structures being brought back into use, and a great display of the days when Radar Research meant so much to us all. It is also home to its own impressive chapel. A buggy is available at Croome for visitors who find the lovely long walks perhaps just a little too long! 

If you are interested in Family History, visit 'THE HIVE' in Worcester - a brand new building with a distinctive Gold Roof which holds a large University library and Archeological Records.

Enjoy an evening at the theatre:-  Stratford-upon Avon and the famous RSC are around 24miles away, Malvern Theatre (approx 14 miles) hosts many pre London Shows, The Swan Theatre in Worcester (approx 15 miles) has recently beenupdated, The charming Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury is around 7 miles away, 'No.8' - A lovely new theatre in Pershore is just 4 miles away, Evesham Arts Centre and The Regal Cinema, Evesham are just 11 miles away. (The newly restored Regal has up-to-date cinema listings and is a cinema with a difference!). 

Take a rest from driving and use our frequent, friendly local bus service to Pershore or Worcester. Pershore Rail Station is 4 miles and is a direct line to London.

There are plenty of interesting places to visit in the area: Upton upon Severn is a lovely small market town with boat trips on the River Severn approx. 7 miles. Worcester Rugby Club approx. 10 miles. Worcester County Cricket ground, 14 miles. Hanbury about, 16 miles away, is another wonderful National Trust Home and always worth a visit, offering children special days and activities at times. The stunning Malvern Hills are nearby and very popular with walkers for incredible views of the area. Also not to be missed is Gloucester Docks: with its wonderful amount of outlet shops, the Dock Area itself, with many, many boats, restaurants and occasionally the Tall Ships. A Wonderful Museum is located here, giving a most interesting history of what used to be one of the busiest inland ports in the country. Many historic churches are located in fairly close proximity: Pershore Abbey, Tewkesbury Abbey, Worcester Cathedral, Gloucester Cathedral.

There is so much of interest around this fantatsic area- it is impossible to name all of it!

Testimonial from a happy family who stayed with us:

"We have been out and about everyday and found plenty to do and see (not enough days for everything). The ages of our party ranged from 4- 78 so we had to keep a wide age range entertained. These are some of the places we visited:- 1. Bourton on the Water; model village; we loved this. Birdland - children had great fun, the village itself is beautiful but was extremely crowded. 2. Croome Court (National Trust ) trail for children very good, very interesting, but not the usual NT property, as it is unfurnished great tea room in main house too. Capability Brown responsible for these". 

So if South Worcestershire or North Gloucestershire is your required destination for work or pleasure, please contact us!
