“Warm,cosy,quiet deeply rural accommodation.”

We stayed here in October half term 2015 with our two dogs. The accommodation is all on one level is very clean, warm, comfortable and very, very quiet. Its rural location helps with this obviously, and the sky on a clear night is a sight to behold.
It was a real pleasure to return to at the end of a days walking in the Malverns. The dogs enjoyed cuddling up to the Rayburn in the evenings. We look forward to booking another totally relaxing break here next year.

As we were leaving a new fridge with a small ice box was delivered, this will be a great addition to the equipment in the cottage

“Rural, quiet, Immaculately clean, cooking and washing facilities if you need them, great overall!”

I was taken aback by the accommodation here, I was travelling from Manchester to Swansea and thought I'd have a break overnight. I really didn't want to leave once I'd arrived!! The Rayburn, the kitchen facilities, the fact that the fridge had all the basics in it waiting for me made this a place I shall try to find ways to come back to.

“Good quiet getaway”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I booked Linhay for a short solo trip to explore the Malverns. The booking was straightforward and Jenny and Mike were lovely hosts: friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Jenny gave me very detailed directions for reaching the property, which were essential as the drive isn't signposted. The setting on a working farm is ideal if you're looking, as I was, for rural quiet; though it's worth knowing that the public footpaths which run close to the farm are not well maintained (be prepared to navigate overgrowing nettles and brambles!) The cottage itself is spacious, light and comfortable, with its own terrace overlooking the fields, and a large, up-to-date wet room style bathroom (the whole place has been thoughtfully designed with good accessibility for seniors and wheelchair users in mind). It is well-equipped and nicely laid out, including a generous selection of things for breakfast, but some of the furniture and kitchen equipment have seen better days and feel a little tired. Personally, I did notice quite a strong smell of diesel in the main living area each morning (presumably from the generator). Another small quibble was that the DVD player and remote refused to actually play DVDs. Overall, this is a comfortable, well-located and friendly budget option for the Malvern area, which with some updating would be extra-special.

Thanks for your review.There is nothing we can do about the overgrown footpaths. Its the county councils responsibility to maintain them-no doubt its part of the cuts that causes the state to be so!! The 120 acres on the farm is also available to walk on.It was a pity you did not mention the diesel smell so we could have sorted it out when you were there.We will replace the DVD player. We hope to see you again.

“farmhouse annexe”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spacious, clean and comfortable especially the beds.
A bit hard to find, and more remote than expected, but this did mean it was very peaceful.
Friendly welcome from host, though some earlier difficulties over payment system.
The house is on a generator so if you want to use the washing machine you would need to ask first. Wifi was sometimes unavailable late at night.
Could have done with more local information sheets eg shops, pubs, restaurants.

“Great stay at beautiful cottage.”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent 2 lovely days at Linhay farm as we were attending a friends wedding at the near by Birtsmorton court. The cottage was spotless, spacious and was so peaceful and safe for the kids, they loved running in the field watching the sheep. The owners daughter even knocked to take the kids to see the horses. We could not have booked a better place to stay. Birtsmorton court was approximately 2 minutes in the car and was the most fantastic wedding venue I have ever seen. Great cottage, great break.

“Quiet location on working farm”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

The holiday property is a separate unit (attached to the farmhouse via a door). The position is isolated and therefore quiet and relaxing and is set in fields surrounded by grazing sheep. The living area and kitchen are open plan, with a separate spacious double bedroom. The connected well tiled,wet room /toilet is large. There are views from the property on three sides and the Malvern hills are visible above the trees. The internal space is well furnished and comfortable. There is a small TV (good picture quality, but no DVD player. Although there is a good range of equipment in the kitchen, I would make a couple of suggestions to improve things- to provide a toaster, upgrade the quality of the cutlery and dishes and provide a few luxury items to enhance the experience (better wine glasses). The property was clean, although we would have appreciated being provided with jnew dish washing cloths. The owners are helpful. Not intrusive and take a 'just ask' approach if you need anything. Breakfast is provided in your accommodation with a selection of items from the fridge, for you to cook/prepare yourself. We like this approach. Although this holiday property may not be the product of owners who are passionate about the business, they do provide you with an overall good experience. Couldn't help feeling however, that with a little more attention to detail, it could be even better!

“A hidden gem...loved it”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Great little cottage with everything you might need for a comfortable stay. We were surrounded by gorgeous lambs and the Malvern Hills as a back drop. Jenny and Mike were the perfect hosts. This is a great location for many great local sights including Malvern, Worcester etc but we were actually at a wedding at Birtsmorton Court which is just down the road.
My only small point to share would be that there is no sign at the entrance to the farm so we struggled to find the place at first because we stupidly relied on our Satnav and forgot to bring along the directions provided. Probably more our fault than anyone elses!
We can recommend Linhay and hope to go back again some day soon ourselves.
perfect.
