The Lodge forms part of the small Perrycroft estate high on the west side of the Malvern Hills, and was designed by Arts and Crafts architect C F A Voysey in 1893, along with the main house, stables and coach house.
Comfortably sleeping up to six people, The Lodge has three bedrooms, with two full bathrooms. The upstairs double bedroom with its antique brass king size bed and the downstairs twin bedroom share the family bathroom which is up the adjacent cottage staircase, and has a cast iron bath, antique wash stand and WC. These two bedrooms both have fantastic views to the South towards British Camp. The third downstairs double bedroom with a brass king size bed is at the back of the cottage and has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, basin and WC.
The Lodge has a beautiful large country kitchen with an electric range style cooker, and a splendid dining room with a wood burning stove and lovely views to the south from the cushion strewn window seat. The sitting room, with two comfortable sofas for relaxing, has a large brick open fireplace, a smart TV with Netflix and Prime, and a Bluetooth music system.
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, care has been taken to interpret Voysey’s architectural vision, with its white washed walls, green painted woodwork and red curtains, and the antique furniture and fittings have been chosen to give an evocative sense of the cottage’s history.
Outside, the back kitchen door leads to a large sloping garden which gives far reaching views towards the south. There is a table for outdoor dining and a small barbecue, and the original outdoor high level WC. You can also step straight from the door of the cottage onto the Malvern Hills where the stunning scenery awaits, with far reaching views across the counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
The Lodge is perfect for visitors in search of a peaceful and cosy holiday home in an historic setting, and is the ideal base both for enjoying some invigorating walking or for exploring all that the Three Counties have to offer.
