Accommodation

Downstairs:

– a sitting room which still has its original flagstones and oak beams. It has a woodburning stove in an inglenook fire place with an original bread oven, a sofa, TV, and well-stocked bookcase;

– a traditional kitchen with a gas Aga and microwave, a large fridge/freezer, a dining table and chairs to seat six, and a Welsh dresser filled with Winchcombe pottery. It also has a washing machine, iron and ironing board;

– the bathroom has a WC, washbasin and shower (a good shower, but not modern);

– there is a second large sitting room (a later extension) with a large picture window which looks out onto the garden. There is a day bed, chaise longue, and a table and chairs by the window.

Upstairs:

– one double bedroom with double bed, bookshelves, chest of drawers, bedside tables and a good-sized wardrobe;

– one single bedroom tucked under the eaves. Both bedrooms look out over fields and Willersey Hill;

– the landing at the top of the stairs is used as an open plan bedroom and study, with a four poster single bed and a large desk. This room looks down the village street to the Malvern Hills in the distance. The bedrooms open off this landing. There is also a landline phone there, for incoming calls only.

There is a studio in the garden for study and writing, which is available by arrangement.

The garden is a very pretty spring garden, with lots of roses in the summer, and a small pond. There is also a very special walnut tree, grown from a walnut by Mrs. Mendolssohn Bartholdy, a descendant of the famous composer.
