About the Property

Apartment sleeps up to four persons (two doubles)

The Retreat is the award winning and recently completed luxury holiday apartment adjoining Wolferlow House, the former rectory, set in beautiful scenery on the Herefordshire / Worcestershire border.
The highlight is the exclusive use of a totally private 9m indoor heated swimming pool and a Finnish sauna - entirely to yourselves.
The Retreat comprises a luxurious double bedroom with en-suite shower featuring a king size bed and Chinese furniture. A proper fold-out double bed settee allows extra sleeping in the sitting area. Double doors and a Juliet balcony give views across the croquet lawn. The fully equipped kitchen is tucked in the corner of the generous living area with flat screen TV, comfortable chairs and a dining table. A wide double-glazed glass screen leads to an elevated paved balcony with outdoor seating and distant views over farmland to the church and Wolferlow Court.
The large gardens are open each year for the National Garden Scheme (17 June 2017) and include an orchard, wildflower meadow with ponds, herbaceous borders and distant views across farmland.
Well away from any busy roads the seven acre property is quiet, peaceful and private.
Attention to detail includes the provision of top quality bed linen, towels and luxury towelling robes.
The Retreat is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic and luxury getaway or to bring the baby / younger children and enjoy a family time together.

Car: Recommended

The Retreat is set in beautiful rural countryside on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The area is a well kept secret offering a wealth of interesting places to visit and lots of peace and quiet.

London is a world away but we are actually only 120 miles from the M25. Birmingham is 38 miles. Readily accessible from M5 J5 (Droitwich Spa) & J7 (Worcester South).

Bromyard (5 miles) Home to the Herefordshire Marmalade Festival, The International Town Criers’ Festival, the Scarecrow Festival, Dr Who Museum, Nozzstock Rock Festival, Jazz and Folk Festivals; there’s something for everyone going on here! That’s before you visit Brockhampton National Trust, Bromyard Downs or Bringsty Common.

Tenbury Wells (7 miles) Traditional market town on the River Teme hosting the Mistletoe and Holly market and has many traditional shops on the high street that you won’t find anywhere else. Good food and drink is to be expected when the town is surrounded by farms, hop fields and orchards.

Worcester (15 miles) Visit the magnificent cathedral, catch up with the English Civil War at the Commandery, stroll along the Shambles shopping, explore the River Severn or relax at New Road watching the county cricket.

Ludlow (17 Miles) Architectural gem and gate to the Welsh Marches, Ludlow has a wonderful market, superb restaurants and events and festivals throughout the year. Ludlow Castle dates from 1086 and is surrounded by over 450 listed buildings. Wonderful for foodies!

Great Malvern (18 miles) The Malvern Hills offers some of the best walking in the country before visiting the local tea rooms, shops, spa, theatre, Abbey, Eastnor Castle or the Three Counties Showground for the Spring, Summer and Autumn Garden Shows.

Hereford (20 Miles) Another great cathedral with the Mappa Mundi and the historic chained library, horse racing, traditional black and white buildings, local cider and beer all set in a medieval market city.

The Cotswolds, The Long Mynd, The Black Mountains, Hay-on-Wye, Cheltenham and Stratford are all within reasonable driving distance.
