“An exceptional hideaway for two”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My girlfriend and I saw in New Year's at The Bothy and had an exceptional time.
A hotel quality room with enough extra amenities for us to be able to cook a full meal if we wanted. Elaine provided fresh coffee, tea, milk, eggs and bread for breakfasts and the complimentary wine on arrival made settling in very easy.
We ventured out across the amazing countryside, (when we could drag outselves out of the cosy bothy), the scenery changes dramatically over every hill and the extensive networks of public footpaths allow for ample exploring!
The local pub The Masons Arms provided a brilliant meal and is highly recommended!

Elaine is a fantastic host who made our secluded New Year's a perfect holiday.
Highly recommended for those after seclusion and stunning countryside without wanting to give up a room with hotel standards!

“Lovely garden escape”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Myself and my partner loved this whole experience... Beautiful little Bothy with a sectioned off garden area that leads to your own pathway to your car. On the inside its kept nice and clean and fulled up with little goodies and necessary items plus more. Defiantly one to go to.. :-)

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Bothy is very handy for both Worcester and the Malvern Hills and is located just outside the village of Martley. It is ideally suited to two guests for a short -break and is a lovely peaceful setting( in a walled garden) with a lot of nice touches and a very friendly and helpful host, which make it a special venue. The lack of storage space might make it less attractive for an extended stay.
The local area is also very picturesque and attractive.

“An idyllic retreat tucked away in the corner of an English country garden”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were looking for somewhere to escape to for our wedding anniversary, but couldn't decide whether we wanted the indulgence of a lovely boutique hotel or the privacy and peacefulness of a holiday rental in the countryside. We're so glad we settled on the Bothy - it gave us the best of both worlds! The surroundings themselves are impressive, being part of the grounds of a historic estate, but it's the setting of the Bothy that's really special, hidden away in the corner of a beautiful walled garden. The owner, Elaine, has gone to such lengths to make sure her guests have everything they could possibly need (and then some!) so you can hole up in real comfort and enjoy a genuine feeling of escape from the outside world. Many thanks to Elaine for a wonderful stay - we'll most definitely be back!

We had an amazing few nights at The Bothy! Elaine was so welcoming and every detail had been thought out with the room. We had a lovely home cooked meal on arrival with a bottle of wine and with the wood burning stove it was a real treat. Will definitely recommend!

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We only had one night but it was perfect- Immaculately clean with fresh towels and bed linen, a really lovely place to stay. We had read reviews on the bed being super comfy and they did not let us down! Elaine was great and left us lots of handy guides for walks, a bottle of wine and toast for the morning! The area is lovely and we would definitely go back and highly recommend! Thanks Elaine!
