Garden Cottage was originally a Victorian quarryman’s cottage in a remote and inaccessible place high on the Malvern Hills near to Gardiner’s Quarry. The cottage was part of a parcel of land bought by JW Wilson MP in 1893 for his new Perrycroft estate. The cottage was renovated and extended during the early 20th century in the Arts and Crafts style and was occupied by the gardener until the estate was sold and divided in the early 1950s.
In 2009 Garden Cottage was reunited with Perrycroft and restored again, and guests at the cottage are invited to spend time in the gardens and grounds of Perrycroft. Garden Cottage enjoyed a period of prosperity during the 1950s, and this period has lent its influence to the restoration, with a mix of antique and contemporary furnishings, soft colours and vintage textiles. While respecting its history the cottage has been provided with all the comforts essential for a relaxing holiday or short break.
With up-to-date bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and underfloor heating, combined with its traditional cottage windows, slate floors, and both antique and modern furniture, Garden Cottage is the perfect family holiday home for those who enjoy beautiful scenery and thoughtful interiors.
