Our black and white cottage dates back to 1632. Lounge, dining room and recently updated kitchen, outside courtyard for that all important al fresco dining during summer months, upstairs offers a quirky layout typical of this age of building, sloping ceilings and black and white beams throughout. Both double bedrooms although the second is quite limited on space, this second can also be adapted to a single bed, bathroom does not have shower fixture but has a fitted hand held one in the bath.
Abbey View Cottage in Pershore was a wonderful base for exploring the Cotswolds. The cottage was clean, well set up, and quiet. There are scores of fascinating historic homes and gardens to visit only a short drive from Pershore (we joined the National Trust, which allows free access to their properties, and we were not able to see all the nearby Trust properties in a ten day visit; our favorite was Snowshill). The landscape of the area itself is beautiful, and the hiking was excellent. In Pershore itself, it was fun to return at the end of the day and either cook in the simple but well appointed cottage kitchen (there are lots of great food specialty shops in the town) or visit the local pubs and restaurants (many backing up to the scenic river Avon; we ate often at The Angel). On top of it all, the Pershore Abbey was fascinating, and only a block away. We enjoyed our stay very much.
I stayed at 56 Newlands for 8 weeks while my house was being renovated, both my children and I really enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic being both walking distance to town and the beautiful park. In addition there are river walks nearby too. The cottage is comfortable and cosy with 16th century charm. The only thing missing is a good shower. Modern amenities such as wifi and freeview TV means you can happily combine rustic charm with twenty first century convenience. A lovely place to stay, perfect for walkers with dogs or as a base to the Cotswolds.
The cottage is delightful, and fully stocked with everything you could wish for. Comfortable sofas, beds, plenty of storage and the kitchen has a great range of china, pots and pans, glasses etc.
Pershore itself is a beautiful town full of Georgian buildings and an 11th century abbey. It is also within half an hour of Stratford upon Avon, Cheltenham and Worcester,and Malvern, plus all the charming small Cotswold villages. The cottage is about three minutes walk to the High Street, where there is a great selection of independent retailers. There is also an Arts Centre, for films,theatre etc and a good variety of pubs and restaurants, all within walking distance. My favourite pub is the Pickled Plum at the top of the road!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying for 6 weeks (15 April 2014 – 28 May 2014) at Abbey View Cottage in Pershore, UK. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we are already in the process of booking another lengthy stay for Spring 2015.
The cottage is perfectly located so that everything on The High Street and general vicinity is in easy walking distance. Pershore itself is filled with lovely places to eat, unique shops, delightful pubs (our favorite is The Star Inn), and friendly people. The entire area was a mass of colors from the beautiful springtime flowers and gentle flow of the River Avon. Public transportation is plentiful and easy to use, but we also rented a car to travel at leisure to the many surrounding towns and sights.
The cottage was clean, comfortable, and inviting. The lounge has overstuffed furniture and is perfect for relaxing, watching TV, chatting, reading, and just plain enjoying. TV reception is excellent and there is Wifi throughout the cottage. The dining room is separated from the main lounge by a step up and low partial wall, giving it a slightly more formal feel.
The kitchen is a dream! It’s pretty, bright, well lit, AND is outfitted with every type of cookware, dishes, utensils, and appliances, including a washer and dryer, as well as a microwave. The windows over the sink face out to the back garden where we had the pleasure of watching the bluebells, lilacs, and roses blossom. There’s also a table with 4 chairs and a barbeque out back which makes for some peaceful sitting and impromptu luncheons or picnics or that nice glass of wine.
Upstairs is a bit quirky, but fitting and comfortable. The large bedroom has a very low slanted ceiling by the window, but is quite spacious and beautifully decorated in soft muted tans, creams, and blues. Closet space, hangers, towels and linens… are all plentiful, both in here and in the smaller 2nd bedroom.
While the smaller bedroom is equipped to sleep two people, it would be a bit of a squeeze, but since there were only the two of us, we used one of the single beds to stack luggage and purchases, while the other bed became my midday nap haven. (There’s also a beautiful view of the lilac tree from the 2nd bedroom window.)
The bathroom was certainly adequate for its purpose, but it must be noted that there are no electrical outlets in the bathroom (we kept the hair dryer on the dresser (with its large mirr
For our purposes, we couldn't have picked a better location or lodging than Abbey View Cottage. My wife and I spent six weeks there in Pershore, UK from mid-April until end of May 2014, one of our goals being to use it as an experiment. Six weeks by ourselves (longest away from home), one town, one lodging. But Pershore turned out to be such a lovely, friendly town, with a deep history and modern sensibility, and on the cusp of The Cotswolds to boot, that it made our stay perfect. In fact, we are planning on returning.
I would recommend hiring (renting) a car, as that is the best way to get around The Cotswolds and environs. There is great bus service in the town, a Hereford to London rail train station a mile or so north, and Birmingham Airport is just over an hour away. (Stratford-upon-Avon is 30 minutes away.) However, while in town, we walked everywhere, not needing the car. The Abbey Park is the green gem of the town, right at its center, and is a two-minute walk at most from Abbey View, and is on the way to the High Street.
The cottage itself served our purposes just fine. The house, originally built in 1632 as this website tells you, is a "duplex", with a lovely, friendly lady living in the other half. It has been heavily renovated on the inside, while still retaining some Tudor charm. The lounge area, where we spent many evenings, is comfy-cozy, and a step up is a nicely appointed dining area. The kitchen is new and modern, with great cabinets and lighting, plus washer and dryer. Out the back door is a small but lush garden that was in full bloom while we were there; it also has garden furniture, a small grill, and a small garden tool shed.
Upstairs, the bathroom had the usual; the bath, rather than having a standing shower arrangement, had a spray attachment on the tub fixture for bathing use, although I would have preferred a shower. (Had a great shower when I got back home!) There are two bedrooms, the front bedroom being the obvious master room. The rear bedroom would be tight for two adults, but it could be done. Tip: mind your head in the front bedroom. :o)
This was an ideal temporary living situation, and we're eager to visit Pershore and vicinity again, once more based in Abbey View Cottage.
My parents absolutely loved their stay in the cottage and would highly recommend it. The accommodation was comfortable and the kitchen in particular was a big hit. Instructions to gain access were easy to follow and the property is centrally located close to a pub, restaurants and local shops. I wished I'd gone with them!
Abbey View Cottage is perfectly located for visiting the beautiful picturesque Broadway, Stratford upon Avon steeped in Shakespearean history, the breathtaking Malvern Hills, Cheltenham are all within 30 mins of the cottage.
