Down a country lane and surrounded by orchards, ancient woodland and wildlife sites… this little house is an inspiring retreat. Newly built and beautifully blended into the natural garden, The Studio is simple yet special. Downstairs you have a sweet kitchen/sitting room with ceilings up to the eaves and French windows to the garden. An Everhot cooker keeps the room snug, and there’s a sofabed for extra guests. Hop up wooden stairs to the lovely loft room with a table for writing, and glorious views over to the Malvern Hills. The peace is complete and you’ll sleep soundly in white linen topped with a blue Welsh blanket. You have your own lawn for meals outside, and share barbecue and garden furniture with The Lighthouse opposite. Ella lives there, and she bakes you a cake and leaves local or homemade provisions to get you going: apple juice, jams, cheeses. She’s happy to do breakfast too – in The Lighthouse, or at the farm (a stroll down the lane). There are markets and shops galore with good local food. Borrow bikes and maps, walk the hills, eat out at great pubs… or stay put and enjoy the birds and the tranquillity.
