We had a great time at The Nest, starting with a really useful 'Welcome Pack' of food, milk etc plus some lovely goodies. We were also made to feel so welcome by the owners, Karen and Dave. As it was winter when we stayed it was great to have the log fire blazing away, plus the central heating of course. It was really cosy in the lounge, sitting on a winter's evening either watching the TV or getting stuck into a good book.
There are plenty of walks straight from the cottage, with the Severn Valley Way footpath about half a mile away. The Wyre Forest is just a short drive away too. Great for walking and cycling. We also drove to the Malvern Hills, about 40 minutes drive away. We found plenty of attractions in the area also, with an English Heritage site at nearby Witley Court, just a short drive away. We also liked Droitwich & Stourport on Severn, particularly the canal basin, with walks along the canal side. We found a wealth of eating places in the area too, from restaurants to pubs. In each one we found we had great meals.
However, it was just as nice to come back to the cottage and cook in the brilliant kitchen, with every modern appliance, but with retro styling. The kitchen/diner is a lovely place to have a meal or breakfast, looking out at the garden. The Nest has it's own courtyards, front and back with a small garden at the back with views over the main house garden and the hills in the distance. We found the beds so comfortable it was sometimes hard to get up in the morning to have a shower! There's an ensuite shower in the main bedroom, plus the luxurious bed of course and a bathroom, with separate shower from the spacious twin bedroom.
This was our first time in Worcestershire but will certainly not be the last and guess where we will be staying - The Nest of course!
