More Details

Details for holiday barn Hop Pickers Barn Rural Retreats, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 1 Bathroom

A 17th Century award winning 4* Gold converted Barn with accommodation on the first floor. Winner of Destination Worcestershire Self catering property of 2014 and 2015. The ground floor is used for private storage. The barn has been tastefully renovated and retained the original stripped beams, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling panoramic window overlooking the gardens. In July 2014 we opened a beautiful luxury 2 bedroom lodge known as Hop Pickers Cabin, it is nestled in the corner of the old orchard with acres of garden and woodland to roam and lovely views across the Teme Valley. Both are a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet break away from it all, either for couples,families or small groups of friends. New for 2016 we have added a luxury Shepherds Hut with private hot tub, en suite bathroom and fully fitted oak kitchen. A great location to enjoy the many attractions within Worcestershire and Herefordshire including a number of National Trust and English Heritage properties.

About Louise Wild

My husband and I have a background in the travel industry and have visited many hotels and lodges and hope we have brought our expertise to the Barn and Cabin to make your stay comfortable.

Louise Wild purchased this barn in 2002

Why Louise Wild chose Malvern Hills

It is quiet and rural yet within easy distance of the M5 and just 6 miles equidistant of Great Malvern and Worcester. We have lived here for 12 years and hope to be here for at least another 20 years!

What makes this barn unique

Peace and quiet at the end of a no through road with fabulous walks from the doorstep. Outdoor heated swimming pool, tennis court, games room and woodland walk with private badger hide.

Brilliant, lovely people and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Weekend break with girlfriend, was greeted by David who provided us with a tour of the property while Louise was grocery shopping for us. Lovely location with some great views of the hilltops, we found a stream in the forest nearby which we followed up to the river. Also visited 'Anupam' a brilliant Indian restaurant located a couple of miles away in Malvern, this was recommended by David and Louise and I'm so happy they did, lovely restaurant with great staff, amazing food and for very little cost, highly recommended.

Overall brilliant weekend definitely go again.

Thanks David and Louise

Great location, comfy interior, lovely grounds.

  • 4 of 5

Great break (2 couples, 1 with small child). Nice quiet location with good grounds for short walks and to entertain the child. Family orientated with good facilities (stair gate, high chair, cot etc). Comfy interior. Friendly owner. Good value for money.

Only suggestion would be double matress on the two single beds together for when couples stay!

Thanks!

Wish we were there now!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful, idyllic property with wonderful hostesses who truly care about your enjoyment. We spent 10 days there last spring using this as a base to travel the region and could not be happier. It wasn't 'too' fancy so you could treat it as a home away from home but comfortable and relaxing with unexpected surprises around each corner. If you have mobility problems, the new cabin would be more accessible as the rooms in the barn is upstairs (with excellent views) but each residence has something special to offer. It's a charming location with a good-natured hostess, Louise, who has knowledge of the region and is willing to share. The Fox Inn was a delicious, reasonably priced treat but it was the Roots at Rushwick Farmers Market that was an unexpected joy providing fresh homemade bread, jams, eggs, and applejuice. Yum!! We would be there now if in England and have recommended it to family and friends.

Owner's Response: So lovely to hear from you, I hope you are both well and still enjoying fond memories of your visit to Madresfield Court. I am sorry I never did send those seeds I promised - maybe this year when they are ready. Look forward to meeting any of your friends or family. Best Regards

The epitome of a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully characterful barn conversion without sacrificing practicality. It was a pleasure to stay at hop pickers barn, with Louise proving a brilliant (not overbearing) host. I was particularly taken with her letting my young daughter join in the feeding of the horses and could not recommend it as a base for a young family to explore around the Malvern Hills enough. I can't wait to go back!

Badger Hide and woodland walk on the property.

Walk to the Malvern Hills, explore the cathedral city of Worcester and visit the rural picturesque villages of Herefordshire.

Malvern Theatre just 6 miles away. Lots of local pubs and close to the cider makers in Herefordshire, plenty of local food shops and excellent cafes. The Fold at Bransford offers a regular Sunday market and craft shops to buy that special gift. Great Malvern and Ledbury are small towns which offer independent retailers, Worcester and Cheltenham have all the main high street stores.
