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.

We went for a family holiday. Great house and gardens, lots of space and very comfortable bedrooms. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and communication was easy and clear. I absolutely recommend this place.
Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at this lovely Tudor House. Really enjoyed walking along the canal. Close enough to enjoy the delights of Stow on the Wold and the Slaughters. Worcester is pleasant, you can also join a river cruise there. Enjoyed an afternoon watching county cricket at New Road. Plenty of restaurant choice in Doitwich Spa. The house is situated next to a decent golf course ,who do rent clubs for £5, which is excellent value. Would definitely recommend this house and we will return in the future.
A magnificent property full of character and history.
Excellent location for touring the Cotswolds and Midlands.
There are not many opportunities to enjoy such a house, highly recommended.
Loved so much of this historic home. The grounds near the canal, seeing the boats go by, the sheep in the fields. Richard and Glenda are wonderful to work with and we highly recommend this rental. Droitwich is very well located near the Cotswolds and really every place in England and Wales...with a small-town touch.
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.

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.
