An amazing barn conversion, great views and everything required for a peaceful break

5 of 5
Everything was perfect and really good quality. I will emphasise that luxury is correct. Great bed, sofa, kitchen and the views are simply amazing. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful old Georgian apartment

5 of 5
We loved our stay in this gorgeous apartment in Upton upon Severn, with a handful pubs and restaurants, and beautiful scenery all around. We'd definitely come again; the apartment is characterful, fully equipped and perfect for two.
