A really lovely accommodation in a quiet village near to Ledbury. Owners very friendly and warmly welcomed us. As the accommodation is attached to their beautiful home, (with an extensive and lovely mature garden) we shared their driveway. However the accommodation is secluded, including a small patio area. Very well appointed kitchen, including dishwasher (which we made use of) and a washing machine. Teatowels and washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and laundry powder all included. We were pleasantly surprised to have a "starter pack" awaiting us, of bread, milk, tea, butter some wine and cider and a box of chocolates, which was most welcome.
The sitting area also had a wood burning stove, but as it was August we did not use it. TV and DVD player were available. The open plan layout downstairs worked very well.
The bedroom upstairs was reached by a spiral staircase, so not suitable for those with mobility issues. Our only (slight) issue was the fact that the "bathroom" was a part of the open plan area upstairs, with only a wall (and no door) between the bedroom and the toilet. Again, the facilities upstairs were of a very high quality; excellent shower and comfortable large bed. Handsoap, and moisturiser, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel all provided, as well as good quality towels.
We enjoyed our time in the area, visiting many local sites, including English heritage, National Trust, and did some walking.

Newly restored with all modern finishes and in a gorgeous location. The living room with roaring fire has panoramic windows looking out on a lovely secluded garden. This is the perfect spot for exploring Malvern Hills, Ledbury and other local attractions. Free Wifi was a bonus.
Jules and Chris are lovely welcoming hosts and made our stay memorable. This place is a gem and I can't recommend it enough.
Tucked away in a tiny village outside Ledbury is The Old Rectory Coach House. The village itself has only a handful of houses and a church, making it ideal if you want to really relax and escape from everything. Ledbury is about 5 miles away and is a really charming market town with lots of independent shops.
We stayed for a long weekend over the May Bank Holiday and there is plenty to see and do in the area. We were lucky that there was a Chili festival at Eastnor Castle so we went down for the afternoon and as well as enjoying all the food had a tour of the castle itself. We also had a great meal at the nearby Three Choirs vineyard, oh and a cream tea after walking in the Malverns.
Jules the owner was kind enough to recommend a really good jogging route for us which we needed after all food we had eaten!
The accommodation was spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. It also had really some really nice touches and has kept the character of the house. Would definitely recommend it.
