Property Description

High on a hill in 500 acres of farmland grounds, this spacious holiday cottage occupies a truly unique position, with superb panoramic views and its own garden and patio. Rebuilt with the mellow stone of the 300-year-old barn which once stood here, it has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard throughout. Visitors are welcome to walk along the many footpaths within the grounds.

Hollywall’s private and peaceful rural setting is equidistant from Ludlow and Worcester (15 miles), both steeped in history and crammed with ancient buildings. Ludlow is a delightful town, with beautifully preserved medieval buildings, fine 18th-century architecture, and a splendid Norman castle set high on a hill. There is an excellent choice of shops, including many antique shops, and eating places. Worcester is best known for its beautiful cathedral, and its Royal Worcester porcelain factory, open to the public. Closer to home, the old market town of Tenbury Wells (4½ miles) offers shops, inns and restaurants, as well as tennis and swimming. To the west, the Burford House Gardens display many unusual shrubs and roses, as well as the National Clematis Collection.

The Welsh borders, the Malvern Hills and the Wyre Forest are within easy reach, and Cheltenham, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon are only an hour’s drive. Cheltenham offers entertainments of international repute, including theatre, music, dance and comedy, as well as a superb racecourse, while historic Warwick boasts England’s finest medieval castle. Stratford is alive with culture and history, boasting five houses associated with Shakespeare, as well as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The Severn Valley Railway and Bewdley Safari Park offer further interesting day trips. Fishing locally. Excellent golf facilities 2 miles. Mountain bike hire 10 miles. Shops 41/2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Spacious sitting-room with wood-burning stove and French doors to patio. Large, farmhouse-style fitted kitchen/dining room with very large table.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We come from Canada and spend the month of May in England. This was our fifth annual extended stay at Hollywall, so we are obviously happy with the property and its surroundings. When we were first looking for a place to stay in England, Hollywall immediately captured our imagination because of its secluded, unspoiled rural setting and its position on a height of land with fields dropping away on all sides, providing spectacular views in every direction. A bonus for us is that the fields are usually full of cattle or sheep, there are pheasants and partridge in the hedgerows, and hundreds of other birds and small mammals living their lives around us relatively undisturbed by human encroachment. The area is primarily agricultural so there is little tourist traffic because there is not much to see but working farmland set in stunning landscape. Hollywall is immersed in nature, a peaceful and tranquil antidote to our deadline-driven and travel-weary working lives at home. The walking in the area is wonderful and food shopping and take-out is excellent in nearby Tenbury Wells. Ludlow, a larger shopping centre, is a fifteen-minute drive away. The house itself and its furnishings I would describe as "shabby chic." It is cosy and comfortable rather than elegant; if we wanted elegant we would have gone to a 5-star hotel in London. Too many houses I looked at on the Internet had lovely country-cottage stone exteriors and glossy-magazine interiors, a great disappointment. With Hollywall you get the stone cottage and the interior you would expect of an authentic farmhouse. There is a huge old harvest table in the kitchen and three large windows with views over the fields and hills. There is cosy, welcoming, overstuffed furniture in the living-room, again with windows on three sides. There are four large bedrooms, one on the main floor and three upstairs; all have windows on at least two walls; the downstairs bedroom also has French doors opening onto the lawn and a wonderful view extending over rolling fields to the horizon. Sitting there you will often have rabbits playing in the grass and cattle not twenty feet away. The floors upstairs are creaky. We love that; it reminds us of our own home in Saskatchewan. We wanted a place in England that felt like a well-lived-in family home, that felt as if someone truly cared about it, not just a “holiday let” with a revolving door. We found that in Hollywall; it’s why we keep coming back. We have made good friends in the area and feel as if we are coming to our second home when we make the trip. May 2012.
  2. Lovely property, very spacious and hilly walks from the door through cow fields. The drive is more a track and very uneven so beware if you’re in a low slung car. Fantastic spot though, worth the drive! Jan 2012.
  3. Lovely quiet location with beautiful views, roomy comfortable house with good sized kitchen table for family/friends. Oct 2010.
  4. Lots of room for everyone - homely, brilliant views and good outside space. July 2010.
  5. The views were fantastic, and Tenbury Wells is an excellent shopping centre. June 2010.
  6. We wanted a comfortable family home in the country that felt lived in, which was what we got. Many of the accommodations I found on the website were too slick for our taste--a lovely stone cottage and English garden on the outside and then granite counters and stainless steel appliances inside. The combination just doesn’t work for me. This was our third rental of Hollywall for a three-week period so obviously it meets our expectations; we come every year from western Canada so it’s got to be pretty special to bring us all that way. The setting is outstanding; I don’t think you could get better views of the countryside anywhere in England. The peace in the surrounding landscape is all-enveloping; the presence of sheep, cattle, deer, rabbits, and hundreds of birds so close to the house makes you feel as if you really are part of the natural world. Hollywall provides the perfect antidote to busy, deadline-driven, urban jobs. It’s difficult to leave. April 2010.
  7. Lovely, quiet position. Very safe for young children. Lots of walking. April 2010.
  8. The property, which we had crefully selected, was ideal for our party. The rooms were spacious, the whole hose was warm and was remote. We only saw 3 people near the house during the whole week! Feb 2010.
  9. Beautiful setting and very comfortable, even with 10 of us! Feb 2010.
  10. Spacious, wonderful views. Oct 2009.
  11. Excellent location with fantastic views. Aug 2009.
  12. All rooms were large light and comfortable. July 2009.
  13. Lovely position, beautiful views, very spacious but warm and our dogs were in heaven! The owner was very helpful when we had a problem with the heating. The property suited our needs very well, we had a great time. Feb 2009.
  14. The site is spectacular, the accommodation comfortable and spacious, the surroundings more peaceful than you can imagine. We particularly enjoyed the proximity of the farm animals and wildlife in fields not twenty feet from the cottage. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a true rural retreat. April 2009.
  15. Wonderful place for a weekend away with friends. Beautiful views of the stunning countryside and plenty of lovely walks. Would definitely return. Dec 2008.
  16. Hollywall is a splendid accommodation, an amazing house, comfy, warm, relaxing and with views that you can loose hours staring at. Jan 2008.
  17. A lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location, which was spotlessly clean and equipped to a very high standard. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, thus making our holiday much more carefree. Overall a very enjoyable Christmas and New Year break. We will certainly be returning to Hollywall Cottage in the future. Dec 2007.
  18. Excellent for peace and relaxation - wonderful. June 2007.
  19. Comfortable secluded house with wonderful views, a range of footpaths for walking and good local facilities. April 2006.
