Our local village is Whitbourne, 1.5 miles away. It has a pub, 'The Live & Let Live' and a community shop stocking many locally sourced products. In Bromyard, 6 miles away, there is a Co-op supermarket, numerous bakeries, butchers and takeaways. At Malvern, for the sport loving, there is a leisure complex with pool. A favourite of ours for food and beer is 'The Talbot' at Knightwick. We have a list of pubs and eating places in the welcome pack at the cottage.
The area is a walkers dream with walks straight from the cottage. The rolling Malvern Hills, Bringtsty Common, Bromyard Downs and the National Trust Brockhampton Estate are all awaiting your boots. We have walking guides and maps at the cottage for you to plan your routes. There are plenty of opportunities for flower and bird spotting, not least in Badley Wood Common which adjoins our land.
Enjoy dinner in our south facing garden, overlooking stunning countryside and relax in the evening in front of our cosy woodburner.
Elcocks Cottage accommodates eight guests in two double and two twin rooms. We have a downstairs twin room and downstairs bathroom with shower. Upstairs, you will find two double bedrooms, one of which directly walks through to a twin room. There are two modern bathrooms. We have restored Elcocks with care and take great pride in the cottage, furnishing it sympathetically to a high standard and with paintings by local artists.
The cottage has electric central heating and a woodburner in the lounge with firewood provided.

We spent hours sitting in the garden, walking locally, watching the local buzzards etc.. We enjoyed Bromyard, Hampton Court Castle, Hereford and the West Midlands Safari Park. A wonderful house, would love to come back again, so much more to explore. Thanks you for lovingly restoring Elcocks.

A wonderful weekend away. I have visited this cottage a couple of times (1997 and 2009) with my family and have many fond memories of ping pong games and den building. This weekend did not disappoint! A great opportunity to have a reunion with university friends and have a birthday getaway. Thank you for a lovely well kept cottage both now and over the years, we've had lots of fun.
