We had a lovely short break at The Groom's House in October. The cottage was clean and well decorated and the perfect size for a couple. Parking was easy, right next to the cottage, and the grounds are peaceful and well maintained, with lovely views and near the river. The location is ideal, enabling easy access to Worcestershire and Gloucestershire....

Management response:

Thank you Tracy - it was a pleasure to have you both stay - hope to see you again. Rosemary

About the neighbourhood
The Old Rectory offers a retreat from everyday life, combining breathtaking scenery with a timeless sense of history. As you approach The Old Rectory, via its secluded driveway, you will discover it set beside Strensham Church, overlooking the River Avon on one side and the Malvern Hills the other. Being surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land this will put you into holiday mood from the outset. Relax and watch the boats go by as you sip your complementary wine, taking in the panoramic vista and tranquillity. Alternatively by special arrangement you may wish to charter Narnia II, a 30ft narrow boat, moored at The Old Rectory; try your hand at operating the lock gates at Strensham and meander to the nearby Riverside Pub or cruise on to take in afternoon tea at historic Tewkesbury.<... more
