Words cannot describe the wonderful cottage that Karen has created! Comfort in every room with her own decor designs evident. Even the private cottage garden is impeccable.
The cottage has been beautifully decorated in a retro style which is both tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen is thoughtfully equipped to make it a real home from home. A welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter and eggs was utterly delightful; we arrived late at night and were able to have a much needed cuppa and a leisurely breakfast in the morning. There is a lovely view into a large garden at the back of the cottage and a pretty, private courtyard garden to the front, in which we enjoyed breakfast, dinner and the odd glass of wine. There is lots to see and do locally in this beautiful part of the country. Karen is an exceptionally thoughtful host and has created an oasis for her guests, for which she should be extremely proud.
Tucked away in a very quiet location in pretty countryside amidst winding high hedged country lanes, but with quick access to the excellent local road network. A good base for exploring the river Servern's historic towns, e.g. Stourport, Bewdley, & Worcester with its splendid cathedral & other old buildings. Lots of interesting houses, gardens, & churches within easy reach.
The cottage is at the side of the owner's house, enclosed in a spacious, plant-filled attractive private courtyard garden. Well designed & beautifully decorated to a high spec, with every comfort & convenience, The Nest is a delightful place to spend a week. The warm & friendly Karen & three generations of her lovely family are on hand if needed, & we very much enjoyed chatting with them, but equally The Nest is so private that you could choose to spend your whole stay without seeing anyone.
Comfortable bed, good shower, large,very well equipped kitchen, & delicious home-made welcome hamper, my favourite touches were the personalised welcome sign, & the charming arrangement of wild flowers in milk bottles. We were lucky to have warm, sunny weather, & the Dawn chorus through the wide open bedroom windows was the best I've heard.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this bright, comfy, characterful old cottage. It's the perfect break from busy urban lives & we came home rested & refreshed.
Thank you, Karen!
Karen made us feel very welcome with a welcome pack tailored to our family with baby snacks as well as homemade goods and staples.
The property seemed more spacious than the photos on the website indicated and the kitchen was particularly well kitted out with everything you could possibly ever need.
We had a lovely stay and highly recommend the cottage.
Stayed as a family with toddler and baby, hard to fault anything. High-spec throughout, thoughtful hosts. For example, all kitchen bits I needed to cook a big meal were there, including ice in the freezer when the hollandaise separated and needed some emergency action.
We can't fault this property. The surroundings are peaceful; surrounding garden and countryside beautiful; attention to detail inside amazing; the welcome pack was delicious; the towels were the most luxurious ever and Karen is a very kind, thoughtful and welcoming host. We will certainly use it again, if the opportunity arises, and would have no hesitation in recommending it. It's a perfect retreat after a busy day out.
Wonderful, relaxing stay at The Nest, Winnall. Great facilities, lovely decor, we had a fantastic night sleep on one of the very comfortable beds! Location excellent for exploring the Worcestershire area. The owners Karen and Dave who run the cottage couldn't do enough for us, will definitely be returning.
