Perrycroft, historic holiday cottages.
Perrycroft Holiday Cottages are within the grounds of Perrycroft, an Arts and Crafts gem high on the Malvern Hills, designed by renowned architect CFA Voysey, and built in 1895. Garden Cottage is one of three holiday cottages at Perrycroft, each one ideally located to explore the Malvern Hills AONB and surrounding area.
Garden Cottage is an old quarryman's cottage which was extended in the early part of the 20th century to serve as the gardener's house for Perrycroft. Traditional details such as original cottage windows and doors, slate floors, and both antique and modern furnishings, combined with modern bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and underfloor heating, make Garden Cottage the perfect family holiday home for those who appreciate stylish and comfortable accommodation. Sleeping up to six people, the cottage will have special appeal for groups wishing to take advantage of the wonderful scenery of the Malvern Hills.

This charming and comfortable, dog friendly cottage is perfect for short breaks and longer holidays and is available all year round.

Garden Cottage is approached from the rear, either down a steep gravel path to the back kitchen door, or along a gentler grass path to the oak front door.
