Long Cover Cottage
Long Cover Cottage is the perfect country break in our self catering holiday cottages in Worcestershire.
For up to ten guests (and the dog!) in accommodation that we believe provides home-from-home standards of quality and acres of outdoor space (including two acres of garden and two acres of ancient woodland).
Queen Victoria spoke affectionately of nearby Tenbury Wells as “my little town in the orchard”. This northern pocket of Worcestershire still overflows with hops and cider apple trees. Stealing its name from the backdrop of ancient undisturbed woodland, the Holiday Cottage in Tenbury Wells and its surrounds make a natural family home – for both frazzled humans and local badgers.
Winding your way up the track to this converted stable, you catch glorious glimpses of the Teme and Kyre valleys; on arrival, you’re greeted by neighbour and owner, cheerful, thoughtful Ellie. Generous windows flood rooms with light, which bounces off polished elm floorboards; a wood-burner and Aga keep things cosy, the kitchen is handcrafted, the views are long and bucolic. Upstairs, bedrooms are brass-bedded and floral, tucked under the eaves in that cottagey way. You get a handy loo and basin up here, a sparkling bathroom with a roll top tub downstairs.
Lucky children have seven acres to romp in, and a secret treehouse complete with hammocks and barbecue for midnight feasts. Resting on the borders of three counties, this is prime walking country, while bustling Ledbury and Ludlow, England’s slow food capital, are just a drive away.
Visit Tenbury Wells, situated on the banks of the River Teme and marking the border between Worcestershire, Shropshire & Herefordshire, was once said to have been called “my little Town in the Orchard” by Queen Victoria. The town has a wide range of independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes.

In the south are the Cotswolds and their enchanting stone-built villages and heart-lifting rural scenery.
And to the west is the Malverns; dark, brooding hills that rise suddenly over the valley of the River Severn that courses north to south down to the Bristol Channel.
Worcester is the main city with its cathedral and medieval charm, and to the north of the county is Worcestershire’s 19th-century industrial legacy, at restored mills and canals.
