We also accept well-mannered dogs in all of our cottages!
The cottages are situated in the heart of two neighbouring villages - Durstone Cottage is in Pencombe, half the way up a farm drive with panoramic views out to the Brecon Beacons from one side and the stunning Malvern Hills on the other. Little Cowarne Court, The Stables and The Tack Room are in the charming village of Little Cowarne, which is just 3 miles away from Pencombe. All our cottages are close to the wedding venue Bredenbury Court.
Durstone Cottage sleeps up to 22 in 9 bedrooms, and is ideal for large gatherings of family and friends. It has a spacious dining room where all the party can eat together and 2 kitchens. Dustone Cottage is in a fantastic rural setting with stunning views, yet it’s only a 10 minute stroll to the Pencombe village pub.
