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 bathrooms. There is an additional downstairs loo outside the kitchen door. The upstairs double bedroom with its antique brass king size bed and the downstairs twin bedroom share the family bathroom which is at the top of the cottage staircase, and has a cast iron bath, antique wash stand, and WC. These two bedrooms both have beautiful 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 large country kitchen with an electric range style cooker. The sitting room, with a wood burning stove and comfortable seating, has lovely views to the south from the cushion strewn window seat. The beautiful dining room, with its open fireplace and Arts and Crafts dining table, is perfect for dinner with family and friends, or for relaxing with a game of scrabble.
The Lodge retains all its Arts and Crafts 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. Most of the furniture is antique, and chosen to enhance the atmosphere of this special place.
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. You can step straight from the door of the cottage onto the Malvern Hills where 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 splendid walking, or for exploring all that the Three Counties have to offer.
