Holywell Cottage Guestbook


 Please find here comments left in the guestbook from some our happy guests!


A great few days spent in this lovely cottage in a beautiful, quiet location. Holywell Spring is just next door with all it's history and spring water available too! The cottage was spotlessly clean with all the comforts of home plus the added extra of a hydrospa bath to relax in after a days outing. Very comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen with shaded patio to the rear. Accessibility to hills right on the doorstep and in easy reach of Great Malvern where there is an excellent town trail to follow obtainable from very welcoming tourist information centre in town if not at cottage. Malvern Priory, Gatehouse Museum and Railway Station with Tearoom are must visits. All in all a wonderful property in a wonderful location.


This is a lovely cottage in a quiet location with easy access to the Three Counties Showground and walks in the Malvern hills. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, with thoughtful little extras like lemon drizzle cake, local apple juice and even a glass bottle to fill with spring water from the well next door. I am sure we will return.

Lovely home away from home. Beautiful location. Well equipped, comfortable and a generous welcome gift to get you started - the lemon drizzle cake was yummy. Nice crisp cotton bedding and soft towels. A well functioning kitchen and cosy sitting room. Highly recommended. Hope to return!:)

Holywell Cottage is lovely. It is very clean and quiet, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. I stayed with friends for a relaxing long weekend. The location is fantastic, there is a pub with very reasonably priced good food at the end of a short woodland walk. I would definitely stay here again either with my friends or with my husband and two children.


Just got back from a lovely long weekend at this lovely cosy cottage. It was so cosy and relaxing we didn't want to leave. Loved walking up to the tops of the Malvern Hills straight from the front door, once up there the views are fantastic. The cottage is in an ideal peaceful location if you want to get away from it all but also easy access to so many places. Clare is very friendly and even left us some goodies including Easter fairy cakes which were delicious. She has done a wonderful job in creating a cosy relaxing cottage that feels like home, thank you Clare. Lynne and Mark x

Holywell Cottage was such a lovely unexpected gem. We actually thought we were going to the Cotswolds and instead we ended up at this beautiful cottage set in the Malvern Hills with fresh spring water coming straight from the original well! The cottage is decorated beautifully and we were welcomed with a delicious cake, local apple juice and local home made jam. This was such a nice welcome. The Malvern Hills are breathtaking and the oldest hills in Europe. Even older then the Alps! 600 million years! One can take stunning walks surrounded by Bluebells and with scenery with views of some plus 12 counties or more. It is a lovely holiday cottage for some real good family time, with a cozy fireplace, comfortable furniture, games, books, a fully equipped kitchen and even a Hydro Spay in the bathroom tub! Thank you for this lovely surprise! Much love, Anouk, Danny, Iwana and Tanieta

The cottage was spotlessly clean and everything we needed and more, was supplied. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and very peaceful; we both enjoyed the sensation of not hearing any traffic at all in the mornings when we woke up. It was lovely to leave the front door and walk along the bridle path straight onto the hills with their fabulous views. The scenery, together with the old fashioned gas style lamps along the lane leading up to the property, rather invoked the feeling of being in Narnia! Would definitely recommend this cottage to those wishing for a break away from the busyness of every day life.

Jane Heintz, 

Lovely walks up to the Worcester Beacon and down to Great Malvern Priory for a carol service on Christmas Eve! Thank you so much for a very well resourced cottage- everything was thought out so well.

Emma and Julian, 

Great Cottage so easy to walk from and explore the countryside- walked to Ledbury via the British Camp- amazing 4 1/2 hours there bus back to Malvern. Great food at the Mount Pleasant Pub/ Hotel in Malvern and roaring fires. Both Malvern and Ledbury interesting to explore.
