No noisy roads. Fields back and front. Superb views over the distant hills and over the river to the forest. Absolutely pure "Get away from it all". Short distance from Bewdley (which is a beautiful town)
Well equipped bungalow with a very welcome "Welcome Pack".
Just lovely to sit by the big picture window or at the table on the terrace and just enjoy the peace and quiet and the view (especially if there was a sunset). Hope to return.

Excellent stay, but can you get out?

General tenure, facilities and condition of the cottage accommodation was excellent, with a good view over the river and railway in a lovely area.
It's position must be regarded as remote, though, and it is virtually essential to have the use of a vehicle to access the cottage. The road to it is long and poor and access could be very difficult or impossible in snowy or icy conditions.
Also, the driveway of the access road is both steep and of loose grit. This means that some cars will have difficulty, even in good conditions, from getting off the driveway. We had to park on the field above the cottage to avoid being stuck in the drive. This possibility should be advised to prospective users, or the drive should be properly metalled for vehicular access.

Upon arrival we were concerned to find it was a chalet and not a cottage as described in brochure but now appreciate that this was new to the brochure at the time of booking and external photograph was not available but upon entry we found it to be clean tidy and well equipped. It is in an ideal location and we would not hesitate to return. [its perfect for a dog]
