About the property

Beautiful 5 bedroom English country cottage in grounds of 5 acres. Sleeps 9+1

Tickeridge Farm is a beautiful 5 bedroom English country cottage - ideally suited for getting together with family, friends and colleagues.

Its setting is perfect and wonderfully private – sitting in a large fenced garden with rolling lawns and views towards the Malvern Hills. It's no longer a working farm but is surrounded by 5 acres of our fields where you’ll find horses grazing.

It lies outside the quintessentially English village of Hanley Swan with its village green, lily-covered duck pond and a very welcoming pub with an open fire. During the restoration of this 16th century house, great care was taken to preserve its original elements whilst incorporating all mod cons.

Massive 30ft kitchen with range cooker, granite worktops, breakfast area, table to seat 10+ with french windows onto the terrace, gas BBQ, outdoor dining and croquet lawn.

Large oak beamed living room with comfy sofas and fireplaces at each end and a TV/games/reading area with a Smart TV- iPlayer, Netflix.

Downstairs cloakroom and a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer

Upstairs two bathrooms - with baths, walk in showers and heated towel racks and five comfortable bedrooms: two double bedrooms with kingsize beds, one single bedroom with a double bed and two bedrooms with adult sized bunk beds.

As you would expect duvets with cotton bed linen and towels are provided; electricity and oil central heating is included as is an initial very large basket of logs to feed the fires.There are a number of TV/DVD/CD players, a Klipsch iPod sound dock and WiFi. In the well equipped kitchen there is a range cooker as well as a microwave, dishwasher and a fridge/freezer

An extra fold-up bed (for +1 child); a travel cot and high chair are available.

Fantastic long weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Tickeridge Farm met all our expectations and then some! The previous reviews did not do it justice! We hired the farm for a weekend surprise birthday celebration for my husband, and everyone had such a fantastic time. The house was extremely clean and outdoor area well maintained. The little touches like wine in the fridge were much appreciated. Dugald was incredibly helpful and flexible with our big party, and really made our weekend special. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tickeridge Farm nor to stay again! Thank you so much.

Perfect base for a get together

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The house was perfect for a group of friends and the kitchen space is ideal for all sitting around and catching up over a meal. We were very lucky with the weather and thoroughly enjoyed playing croquet on the lawn! Highly recommended.

Fantastic house for a meet up with friends

  • 5 of 5

10 of stayed the weekend here. The house was perfect for us and the huge kitchen dining table was a real bonus. All the bedrooms were clean and comfortable, there were enough bathrooms and toilets and the kitchen was well equipped. The garden is lovely and the walks in the Malverns were great. Thank-you

Idyllic semi rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 9, ranging in age from 91 to 1 spent the early May Bank Holiday weekend enjoying the comfort and convenience of Tickeridge Farm. Superb weather further enhanced our stay and the plentiful sun loungers were well used, in the shade of the apple tree. Croquet on the lawn and watching the ponies in the field next door provided easy entertainment. The large level garden was ideal for little ones to play safely. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the gas barbecue made easy work of feeding everyone. Evenings inside were also very comfortable and the separate seating areas for TV viewing and others useful. Hanley Swan is a picture postcard English village, and the annual open gardens event popular with some of the older members of the group. The neighbouring village pub was a good place to collapse on our last night when when the little ones had gone home! Altogether a very successful weekend.

Great location and lovely garden surrounding the property. The table was large enough to seat 10 comfortably. The showers are great - very good pressure. Beds very comfortable too. Lovely pub in Hanley Swan. All in all a lovely place to stay.
