The Lodge at Perrycroft was designed in 1893 by the Arts and Crafts architect C F A Voysey. It formed part of a small estate high on the west side of the Malvern Hills along with the main house, stables and coach house, and 80 acres of fields, woodland and gardens. Now about 10 acres remain of the estate, and guests are invited to enjoy the grounds and gardens of Perrycroft at their leisure.
The Lodge retains all its authentic details such as the leaded light windows and quarry tiled floors, cottage fireplaces and original door and window ironmongery. Refurbished to provide all modern comforts, staying at The Lodge still feels like a step back in time. Care has been taken to interpret Voysey’s architectural drawings, with their white washed walls, green painted woodwork and red curtains, and the antique furniture and fittings have been chosen to give a sense of the cottage’s history.
While providing modern essentials such as wifi internet, television, central heating, and a fully equipped kitchen, The Lodge will appeal to visitors in search of a peaceful and simple holiday home in an historic setting.
The main features of the cottage include:
- Detached house to sleep 4.
