Richard parents Charles & Barbara Fellows bought the house in 1942 during the 2nd World War and moved into the house in 1944. Richard grew up here and returned with his wife Glenda in 2000 on the death of his mother.

Richard & Glenda purchased this cottage in 1942

Since 2000 much work has been done to the house up upgrade. However, at present the owners Richard & Glenda are cruising on their boat in the Mediterranean for the next few years.

This is truly a unique country house little changed since the 15th century.

FABULOUS HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
What a special time we have had in this delightful home. After spending the past five weeks in The Old Manor, perhaps the greatest compliment we can pay is to simply say how difficult we found it to leave - our family (2 adults and 3 active boys) were all very sad. It was truly a memorable experience and exactly what we were hoping for (more in fact). The owners/caretakers were great and made us feel very welcome. How wonderful it was to have everything one could want in a home away from home (kitchen, linens, books - I mean everything). If you're looking for a little haven and a quintessential English house look no further. You are close to wonderful stately homes, beautiful countryside and nearby sites (eg. Cotswolds, Stratford). There are no negatives to this home and we are a fussy family! We would come back in a heartbeat.

IT WAS HEAVEN

  • 5 out of 5
The old manor was just stunning. I could live there for the rest of my life. It was so cosy and comfortable. It was so well appointed with lots of crockery and glasswear etc we were able to hold my MIL 80th birthday party luncheon there. The sun even shined so we could have it outside in the glorious garden. Everything you could need away from home was there.

The owners and property manager were very helpful with descriptions and details and showed us the local walks along the canals to the pubs :-).

As a property for a family you couldn't get better and I now feel confident that should we ever decide to brave a trip to the UK in winter and could stay at the Old Manor it would be a very successful trip.

Thank you do much Richard and Glenda for such a wonderful property.

THE OLD MANOR, HADZOR, WORCESTERSHIRE

  • 5 out of 5
A perfect house to stay for a family holiday.
All was as per the descriptions.Our 8 year daughter loved playing the piano and also sitting by the real fires.
Plenty to do within walking distance along the canals,a trip to Worcester (15mins) is also a must.
All in all a fab place to stay.

PERFECT FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Old Manor in November for an "American Thanksgiving" with the English side of the family. The house is a quintessential English home from the 1700's surrounded by gardens and fields with sheep. The kitchen was well equipped to cook a complete Turkey dinner with roasted potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie - even dinner service for 12 and an antique serving platter and carving set! The wood burning stoves and an antique door turned into the dining table completed the effect. Our English family really enjoyed their first Thanksgiving at the Old Manor.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the wonderful review. If we may make a correction, the house was built in the 1400s. By the 1700s it was a very old house already!

THE OLD MANOR, HADZOR, WORCESTERSHIRE

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here for a week with my daughter, husband, parents and parents in law for a week. The house is more beautiful than the pictures can ever describe ~ it is full of character and history and has such an amazing cosy and friendly feel. We had both the woodburners in the lounge and dining room burning in the evenings and both were just the spot for a glass of wine and relaxing! All the bedrooms were very comfy and roomy and everything that you could need was provided ~ towels, hairdryer, extra blankets (although we didn't need them even though the weather was cold the house was very warm). Shelves full of books and plenty of tourist information ~ even though we struggled to drag ourselves out of the house to do anything as it was so lovel to just sit and relax. We walked to the pub down the canal The Eagle and Sun for a lovely meal; shopped in Worcester(lunch in The Olde Talbot Inn - very good); visited Webbs the large garden centre;Whit Lenge gardens well worth a visit and a piece of cake! We had a daily visit from the Green woodpecker and also a Swan dropped in for breakfast. We paid in visit to the Cotswolds also - about 50 minutes to Stow on the Wold. A lovely holiday in a beautiful house ~ if you need a change from semi-detached land this is definately the house to do it in!!!

Owner's Response: It always gives us great pleasure knowing that the house is being used and more importantly enjoyed.

Everyone who have spent time at The Old Manor have given us wonderful accounts of their stay and how much they enjoyed it.

We know that once back home it takes a little extra effort to send in a review so your comments are very much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Glenda & Richard

A GEM!

  • 5 out of 5
We spend four days over the Jubilee festivities in this wonderful Tudor property. The house is incredible comfortable, clean and very tastefully decorated - the grounds are absolutely stunning. The owners and caretakers were incredibly helpful and welcomed us very warmly. My children were absolutely delighted by the whole set-up and I would highly recommend it. There is plenty to visit in the area (Handbury Hall and Witley Court in particular) and despite the mixed weather we all had a fantastic time. We shall be back!
