About Linhay Cottage

Linhay Cottage sits in one of the most picturesque and serene corners of the English countryside, on a 120-acre mixed farm close to the hamlet of Birtsmorton and next to the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is no passing traffic and no light pollution, so you are likely to enjoy the best sleep of your life! The cottage is a skilful blend of traditional style with modern touches, including enormous windows that frame the fantastic views, and a layout that makes it suitable for guests requiring easy access. The cottage sleeps two guests in one bedroom and is ideal for couples, although a generously-sized sofa bed and put-up beds can accommodate four additional guests if necessary. Peaceful yet near to towns 7-miles away, Linhay Cottage offers the best of both worlds.

Birtsmorton is a short, three-minute drive (or half hour walk) from Linhay, where you will find an excellent local dog-friendly pub, the Farmer’s Arms, serving real ale and home cooked meals. You can pick up essential supplies at the village stores in Pendock and Welland, or drive the ten-mile route to Great Malvern where there is a wide variety of places to shop, eat and drink.

Linhay is perfect for people who enjoy spending time outdoors. From listening to the birds at sunrise to counting the plethora of stars visible in the dark skies - every moment is a wonder. Several National footpaths can be accessed from the front door of the cottage, as well as walks around the farm. The Malvern Hills offers beautiful views from footpaths of varying degrees of challenge, but you only have to stroll around Birtsmorton and neighbouring Castlemorton to appreciate the beauty of the Worcestershire countryside. The Malvern Hills are also popular with mountain bikers, while keen equestrians will be happy to know that the owners at Linhay offer accommodation for up to four horses and can arrange for a guide to share their local knowledge and show you the best sights.

One of the many attractions of Linhay Farm is its proximity to beautiful historic cities like Gloucester, Cheltenham, Worcester and Hereford; attractions like NT Croome Court nearby and the Birds of Prey Centre at Newent; the popular wedding venues of Birtsmorton Court (just 1.1 miles) and Eastnor Castle (5.9 miles); the Three Counties Showground (6.9 Miles); Bredon Hill, May Hill, Bromyard and Leominster, plus lots of festivals. Towns like Ledbury, Tewkesbury, Upton-on-Severn and Ross-on-Wye are within easy driving distance, as are the Cotswold villages of Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Upper and Lower Slaughter, putting guests staying at Linhay Cottage in the heart of one of England’s most picturesque regions.

The area also offers a good choice of more unusual things to do including:

  • Eastnor Pottery courses
  • Clay Pigeon Shooting
  • Bird of Prey Courses and Events.
  • 4WD Experience at Eastnor
  • Take a helicopter ride from the cottage field
  • Go up in an hot air balloon from the cottage field
  • South Worcs shooting for clay pigeon shooting

Location (Worcestershire)

Linhay Cottage is a welcoming property designed to complement the owner's nearby Georgian-style farmhouse. Accommodation is all on the same level and there are ramps to make it even more accessible for guests.

Accommodation Comprises:

  • Light, bright living room, made even more pleasant thanks to large, low windows that overlook the bucolic scene, and glass French doors that open onto the raised patio (it is on the same level). There is a flat screen TV with a DVD player, the cottage also has WiFi, and the owners have also provided a choice of books for guests to enjoy.
  • Large sofa which opens into a comfortable double sofa bed (plus 2 put-up beds are available), and there is a private alcove with wardrobe and chest of drawers for clothes storage where these guests can change or get dressed.
  • The living space is open plan and the sitting room flows seamlessly into a sunny kitchen/diner with a dining table and chairs for four people. The fitted kitchen has an oil-fired Rayburn stove to add to the country cottage appeal, as well as a gas cooker, microwave, fridge and a good variety of cooking equipment. Guests also have access to a herb garden to give their meals an extra boost of fresh flavour.
  • Bedroom which can be set up either with a super-king sized (6ft) bed, or two standard (3ft) single beds, depending on your needs. Low windows mean that you do not even have to leave your bed to enjoy the lovely views across fields and farmland.
  • Tiled wet-room which is completely accessible, featuring a shower, WC and handbasin.
  • The cottage has a mix of tiled and wood flooring, all of which has underfloor heating.

Outside: A raised patio has garden furniture so you can open the French doors from the living room and enjoy alfresco meals. There is private off-street parking for four cars, and secure bike storage. The owners can provide stabling for up to four horses for a small extra charge.

Additional Information: All utilities, linen and towels are included with hire. Some support equipment can be provided for guests with special needs (full details are on the owner's website) with additional aids available to rent locally (delivery available). Up to three dogs welcome (or contact the owner if you would like to bring more). Smoking is not permitted. Short breaks possible (1 night minimum available and charged at £40 per person) - please enquire with the owner.
