Worcester house description

This beautiful 5 bedroom English country cottage is ideal for getting together with friends and family.
Its setting is perfect and wonderfully private – sitting in a large fenced garden with rolling lawns and views towards the Malvern Hills and surrounded by 5 acres of fields where you’ll find horses grazing. It lies outside the quintessentially English village of Hanley Swan with its village green, lily-covered duck pond and a very welcoming pub with an open fire. During the restoration of this 16th century house, great care was taken to preserve its original elements whilst incorporating all mod cons.
Massive 30ft kitchen with range cooker, granite worktops, breakfast area, table to seat 10+ with french windows onto the terrace, BBQ, outdoor dining and croquet lawn.
Large oak beamed living room with comfy sofas and fireplaces at each end and a TV/games/reading area.
Downstairs cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer
Upstairs two bathrooms - with baths, walk in showers and heated towel racks and five comfortable bedrooms - two doubles, one single and two bedrooms with adult sized bunk beds.

As you would expect duvets with cotton bed linen and towels are provided; electricity and oil central heating is included as is an initial very large basket of logs to feed the fires.There are a number of TV/DVD/CD players, a Klipsch iPod sound dock and WiFi. In the well equipped kitchen there is a range cooker as well as a microwave, dishwasher and a fridge/freezer
An extra fold-up bed (for +1 child); a travel cot and high chair are available.
