Our 4th stay with Sue and Roger on their lovely farm near Evesham and Pershore. This time we stayed in the brand new self catering Cropvale Lodge. The very spacious lodge is set a short walk away from the farmhouse and barn rooms which means that you feel as if your in your own world. The view through the French doors to the Breden Hills is spectacular with barely a building to be seen.
If you are after seclusion fresh air and great views look no further, you even have your own car parking area next to you. As my wife and I walked through the side entrance we were gob smacked. It is both spacious and cosy with quality leather sofas and solid oak furniture in the living room and for any winter visitors or cool evenings it even has its own log burning fire (supplied with a glove so you don't get your hands dirty). It also has central heating of course but none of that was needed as it is very well insulated from both the hot and colder weather.
The 2 bedrooms again have high quality furniture with plenty of storage and superb thick mattresses on the beds and luxuriously thick rugs on the wooden floors.
The bathroom is huge with a large bath and powerful shower. Sue's attention to detail is everywhere from the white fluffy towels to adjustable shaving mirror and bath/shower toiletries.
The kitchen is fully equipped from the washing machine and dishwasher to the excellent halogen electric cooker. Apart from food and clothing we brought very little with us and found everything we needed was there.
Breakfast on the decking as the sun comes up to warm your back and light the hills is something we will always remember from our stay, it seems that evertime you look at the Breden Hills they look different, from the wispy clouds hiding parts to the changing colour and detail of the fields as the sun moves over them.
All in all we had a fantastic few days there and is easily the most relaxing tranquil place you could wish for. My wife used words like "slice of heaven" and "devine setting".
I honestly don't think you could beat this for value either, with lovely friendly owners. I would be very happy to live in the lodge as a home. Well done Sue and Roger your hard work has paid off you have a winner on your hands, we'll definitely be back next year.
