Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms,1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Rabbits scamper, buzzards soar and windows flood rooms with light in this cosy stable with glorious views. Let the kids and dogs roam free!

Stealing its name from the backdrop of ancient undisturbed woodland, the cottage and its surrounds make a natural family home – for both frazzled humans and local badgers. Winding

your way up the long peaceful track to this converted stable, you catch glorious glimpses of the Teme and Kyre valleys; the setting is spectacular. On arrival, you're greeted by the

delightful Ellie, whose grounds and beautifully tended English country garden you share. Generous windows flood rooms with light that bounces off polished elm floorboards; a wood-burner and Aga keep things cosy, the kitchen is handcrafted, the views are long and bucolic. Upstairs, bedrooms are brass-bedded and floral, tucked under the eaves in that cottagey way. You get a handy loo and basin up here, and a sparkling bathroom with a roll top tub downstairs. Lucky children have seven acres to romp in, and a secret treehouse with hammocks and a barbecue for midnight feasts. Resting on the borders of three counties, this is prime walking country. Bustling Ledbury and Ludlow, England's slow food capital, are just a drive away.

The cottage offers magnificent views in all directions-over the Teme and Kyre valleys, ancient woodland and unspoilt farmland. Longcover is a detached cottage in a very rural position. Guests will enjoy a private patio at the side which looks on to fish pools and an ancient oak woodland. Leading directly from the cottage is an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways where badgers and owls may be seen. Tenbury Wells, an attractive spa and market town in the Teme Valley, is 4 miles away. The fine Georgian town of Ludlow is 25 minute drive away.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and idyllic with loads of lovely quirky features. The house has an Aga and a wood burner with plenty of wood provided to get nice and cosy. The grounds around the house are fantastic with lovely outdoor areas and plenty of wildlife. We would love to come back again and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

A magical retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage - so beautiful and peaceful, with lots of thoughtful touches - fresh flowers from the garden and the most delicious cake waiting for us when we arrived. The garden is stunning. The tree house by candlelight was magical. We hid from the world for a few days and emerged totally relaxed and refreshed. Thank you Ellie.

Stunning tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place Ellie has created, hidden away in the countryside. We stayed for a long weekend to celebrate my mothers 70th, there is nothing more we could have asked for. Beautiful cottage, equipped with everything you could possibly need. Beautiful bedrooms, croquet on the lawn, woods for the dogs to go exploring, and Ellie recommended Hazel who delivered a delicious meal to us on the Saturday evening. Hand on heart this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in, we were blown away.

Enchanting little paradise

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this beautiful cottage really do not do it justice. It is an enchanting little paradise hidden away in the beautiful countryside. The grounds and gardens have interesting little areas. It is in a very peaceful location. There are beautiful walks in the surrounding area. The cottage itself is stunning and has everything required for a get away and relax break. We got bird seed and watched numerous different birds and field voles munching free dinner. Kids can disappear safely to explore. There was nothing we could fault and we are hard to please experienced cottage weekenders. Ellie was delightful and left us in peace although only next door should we have needed anything. Well recommended and we will definately be returning.

Peaceful and cosy retreat

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Longcover was a special experience for us and our friends. The cottage was cosy and warm, thanks to the plentiful supply of wood for the fire, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the beautifully landscaped garden with snowdrops and daffodils everywhere made for a perfect destination which we hope to return to again.

Ellie made us feel especially welcome with a scrumptious homemade Victoria sponge cake and fresh flowers throughout the cottage.
