A Message from us at Fishpool Cottages

Your safety is paramount to us here at Fishpool Cottages. We are looking forward to welcoming our guests back to our stunning, secluded and most importantly, SAFE holiday cottages. We have always taken the cleanliness of our cottages extremely seriously which can be seen from our 5 STAR Visit England rating on Hygiene.

Our guests and our team can be assured we are taking extra measures to maintain our reputation. We are doubling housekeeping staff for the foreseeable future in order to ensure a deep clean between changeovers. Our team are following strict government distancing guidelines that we have put in place here at Fishpool Cottages in order to keep us all safe.

We have decided to remove the ‘Meet and Greet’ part of your stay with us to ensure we can maintain distancing. Guests will be able to enter the properties with the keys we have placed in the agreed locations via telephone or email. We will continue to offer our personal service as much as we can while still following government guidance.

Head for the hills…and the dancing daffodils. In the expansive grounds of a 16th-century timber-framed house, is the perfect retreat à deux. Way up a simple track, you already feel yourself unwinding as you approach your traditional timber framed hideaway awaiting you. The Self Catering Cottage in Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire sits in unspoilt rolling countryside and was built entirely out of locally sourced stone, oak and handcrafted leaded light windows. Inside you will be met by a cottage built by a Master Craftsmen with fine details, charm and character. Settle on the weighty leather sofa next to the wood-burner stacked high with logs from the nearby woods. The kitchen is well equipped, open plan and nestled around the Aga, the floor is made out of natural stone with underfloor heating. As you climb up the oak staircase you will be met by an open plan bedroom, dressing room overlooking the sitting room below from the galleried landing. It would be a treat of an evening to follow the babbling brook through the ancient orchid-dotted woodland.

Rest awhile at the owner’s perfect little treehouse (with hammocks), then retire to your own secluded little garden with its picture-postcard views across open pastures to the Teme and Kyre valleys. Venture further to ‘foodie’ Ludlow full of fabulous various restaurants, book-lined Hay-on-Wye, Ironbridge industrial heritage, the magnificent Malvern Hills is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon walking. Ludlow Castle, Croft Castle, Eastnor Castle and many more National Trust properties are within easy distance. Take to the slow life on the steam railway, stride out on the Mortimer Trail, meander through forgotten Herefordshire villages.

Leading directly from the cottage is an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways where badgers, woodpeckers, buzzards and owls may be seen. Buzzards soar overhead, rabbits scamper in the fields that surround you. Tenbury wells, an attractive spa and market town in the Teme Valley is 4 miles away and the fine Georgian town of Ludlow is only a 15 minute drive.
