Nice stay overall unit was clean and good location. Place was easy to find Accommodation was very comfortable but feel it is a little expensive though for what you get. People were very friendly though.

We stayed in this delightful luxury cottage for a couple of nights. Perfect for our family of four, away from all other accommodation with its own private garden so very quiet and secluded. Children loved the walks in the woods along the river. Comfy beds and couches with plenty of heating for our midwinter stay.

We have stayed in many 4* places in the Midlands, none of them convinced us to go back. Waterford Manor was different. We enjoyed everything about it. Well furnished rooms, excellent hospitality, the most non greasy English breakfast ever, nice walking trail on the property. We will be back.

We stayed for two nights in the Jasmine room and it was a most comfortable, well-appointed unit. The hosts, Lorraine and Tony made us feel at home. The setting is stunning with access to the crystal-clear river a few meters away from our room. We didn't get a chance, but you can walk alongside the river without leaving the property....

This is a fantastic gem in the Midlands - what a wonderful surprise - we will be back. Warm and inviting from the very first minute. There was a slight hiccup with 3rd party billing, but that did not detract from our stay. Friendly, warm welcome from the owners, we can't wait to get back!

Waterford manor is a great location for meandering the midlands. Self catering houses are clean and fully equipped. Great winter getaway and beautiful hikes around the property. Owners are welcoming and willing to assist at all times. I would recommend this accommodation to families.
