We have stayed in nearly 20 cottages in the UK from Northumberland to Dorset. Without doubt the one in the most attractive & enjoyable setting is Long Cover in Worcestershire near Tenbury Wells.

Long Cover is a three-bedroomed cottage surrounded by 7 acres of grounds. Occupants have free access to all that space including play areas, woodland, pond, tree house, a "bothy" (farm labourer's hut) and hammocks. There are four or five outdoor seating areas and a barbecue. There is a quirky, highly personal feel to the surroundings reflecting the labour of love that the property obviously is.

Indoors, on the ground floor, the cottage features a well-equipped kitchen (including an Aga), six- seater dining area, a very comfortable living room and a comfortable double bedroom. There is a bathroom including a bath and separate shower. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, twin room and (tiny) toilet. Each room continues the individualistic theme of the entire site.

Long Cover cottage housed 5 people (and a terrier!) very comfortably and warmly. We were welcomed personally by the owner Eleanor with a smile and a welcome hamper including a delicious home-made cake.

But the real emphasis-and the reason I would unhesitatingly recommend Long Cover, is the beautiful surroundings . Long Cottage is almost half a mile off any road. It is very isolated and commands a panoramic view of the beautiful local countryside. If you want hustle & bustle I suggest you look elsewhere! You are however within twenty-odd miles of Hereford, Worcester, Hay-on-Wye, Leominster and Ludlow. Tenbury Wells and Eastnor Castle are much nearer. Our party included two teenagers and within 15 miles drive we were able to take them to West Midlands Safari Park and the Time Machine Museum in nearby Bromyard. The ground floor bedroom was ideal for the 87 year old in the party.

We were not blessed with good weather or we would have undoubtedly spent more time in the grounds. To prove how much we liked the place, we have already booked a return visit- less that a week after leaving!

Do yourselves a favour- visit Long Cover before it gets too famous. You won't regret it!

I'd like to add my review for Long Cover Cottage. There aren't words to describe how wonderful Long Cover Cottage made us feel. It is a truly beautiful place to stay. The cottage is furnished and equipped to a high standard and feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. The grounds are well cared for and include tree swings and a fairy house, which the children adored. There is a forest area and a pool and beautiful flowers and shrubs everywhere. The owner is kind and lovely, she really cares about her guests and nothing is too much trouble, she even baked a welcome cake for our arrival. We spent hours both relaxing inside and walking through the grounds with the dogs and came away feeling totally at ease with the world.

I would thoroughly recommend this cottage, in a wonderful setting of quiet countryside with fabulous views. Ellie, the owner, is very friendly and welcoming and lives next door, so she is at hand for any problems or advice you may need, but the two cottages are set apart and in extensive gardens which give great privacy for both. My grown-up family and I enjoyed a perfect long weekend here, catering for ourselves in the well-stocked kitchen, going out for food to the local restaurants (and also popping next door for tea and cake one lovely afternoon!) With an abundance of logs for the log-burning fire in the lounge, the whole cottage is extremely comfortable, and is as enticing in the flesh as it is in the photographs. The floorboards do creak a bit upstairs, and it is true that the upstairs loo is a bit on the small side, but these small points in such an old building don't detract from the loveliness of this cottage.

The cottage is so comfortable. We loved all the homely touches. Thank you for cake and flowers. We've had a lovely weekend together and your gardens were stunning and so good to walk around to see all the hidden corners and ornaments and enjoy the emerging spring flowers and birds. Cottage lovely & clean and cosy. Thank you. Views amazing. So peaceful.

A thoroughly lovely Christmas break at Long Cover. We very much appreciated the Christmas decorations - all added immensely to the festive cheer. And the dogs had a whale of a time in the surrounding countryside. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Our family of five plus two dogs enjoyed a delightful stay in Long Cover Cottage over Christmas. The owner had gone to great lengths to deck the cottage with Christmas decorations so it couldn’t have been more festive. The cottage has been furnished in a very charming and picturesque way. It is situated well away from roads making it perfect for dogs. We enjoyed many lovely walks in the surrounding countryside. We would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage as the perfect place for a peaceful break.

This really is home from home. We felt completely welcome and Ellie and family were very accommodating to our 10 month old Labrador pup. Even when he invited himself into their house and gate crashed a croquet game! Beautiful accommodation and grounds and Ellie even organised champagne and cake for my birthday. Would definitely recommend. Many thanks. Would recommend Hazel's Easy to do Cookery - delivered straight to our door!

We are so sorry that our stay at Long Cover is coming to an end - we have had a wonderful couple of weeks with you in this idyllic cottage. From start to finish, from sunrise to sunset, our fortnight here surpassed all of our expectations. Wonderful walks, gorgeous gardens, heavenly historic sights, atmospheric pubs, and the loveliest of landladies. Thanks a million!

The very essence of tranquillity and restfulness. Chill out in the garden room; if chilly, light the wood burning stove and snuggle on the sofa. Perfect for dogs. Lovely house and warm welcome from Ellie, and a cake to boot! We've had a great time. Thank you.
