Here you can leave the car behind as you are well served on foot, there is a well-stocked village store and two good pubs. You can embrace the outdoors with waymarked paths for both walking and cycling, follow the riverside walks from Strensham Lock, or enjoy a day’s fishing on the River Avon, within half a mile. This area has a year-round events calendar: follow the Blossom Trail in springtime, the Asparagus Festival in the summer, and attend the Plum Festival in autumn. A paradise for walkers of all abilities and stamina (great for the kids), there is easy access to Bredon Hill, 4 miles away and made famous by AE Houseman’s ‘A Shropshire Lad’, and the Wychavon Way, 3 miles.

A lovely barn conversion in a lovely area. The owners were really helpful with a wonderful welcome pack. The cottage was very dog friendly with bowls, bed and secure garden. Although the conversion is recent, the cottage felt very warm and cosy. Beds were really comfortable. The village was great. 2 good pubs and a shop and very friendly villagers.Read more We loved walking in the area, especially in the delightful Tiddesley Woods Nature Reserve. Highly recommended and genuinely 5*. Hide

Beautiful property in a lovely location, we found all the locals very friendly. Had some great walks by the river & round the gorgeous village. Our bearded collie loved the garden & the bulls in the surrounding field. Thank you Kate for such a generous welcome pack. We will definitely return and whole heartily recommend.

The cottage was lovely. Every room was spotlessly clean. The lounge was warm and cosy with a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Nice private, south facing garden to relax in. Kate the owner was very helpful and recommended some nice walks and places to eat in the area. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Great location and great cottage. A lovely greeting pack was waiting for us on arrival, which we were very glad to use. House was spotlessly clean with great facilities and equipment. Easy access using the key safe provided. The enclosed garden was a wonderful space for our dog to use and being secure meant that we were able to let the dog come andRead more go as he pleased. Close to major roads so easy to travel locally or further a field. Very peaceful, a great space in which to holiday Hide
