The Coach House may date from the 1600s but, thanks to a sympathetic conversion, offers a warm welcome to 21st-Century couples looking for a peaceful countryside retreat. The Grade-II listed cottage is in a fantastic location close to the centre of Lincomb and the River Severn, and with direct access to beautiful footpaths and cycling routes.
Lincomb is a tiny village best known for the incredible Redstone Caves which are only a mile from the cottage, as the crow flies. This local landmark was a medieval hermit's cave and, amazingly, housed people until just after WWII. The sandstone caves are part of the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark and along The Geopark Way long-distance footpath that stretches north from Gloucester to Bridgnorth.
There is so much to see and experience during your stay at The Coach House including walking, cycling and golf. For those visiting Lincomb Equestrian Centre with their horse (it is just a short walk from the cottage) you can enjoy relaxing in luxury at the end of the day, instead of the horse trailer! The charming market town of Stourport is just a few miles away with an excellent array of places to eat, drink and shop, as well as a day spa offering luxurious treatment to make your holiday the most relaxing one ever. Ombersley and Bewdley are also close, while the lively market town of Kidderminster and the historic city of Worcester are both within a 20-minute drive.
Worcestershire is a beautiful English county with lots of places of excitement and interest. Stourport sits beside the Severn and boasts a historic canal and lots of parklands, while those who enjoy walking and cycling can take the route from Lincomb to Stourport and on to Bewdley that passes through riverside meadows and returns through woodland. The Wyre Forest is about seven miles from the cottage, also with a good choice of places to walk and cycle. Local attractions include West Midlands Safari Park, the Severn Valley Railway, Harvington Hall, Arley Arboretum and Great Witley Church.
The owners of The Coach House have taken great care over the conversion and decoration of the period cottage to ensure that guests enjoy a peaceful and comfortable stay so pleasant they will be looking to return as soon as possible. With its luxurious touches and beautiful location, the cottage is a wonderful place to stay at any time of the year.
