Long Cover Cottage

A Message from us at Fishpool Cottages

Your safety is paramount to us here at Fishpool Cottages. We are looking forward to welcoming our guests back to our stunning, secluded and most importantly, SAFE holiday cottages. We have always taken the cleanliness of our cottages extremely seriously which can be seen from our 5 STAR Visit England rating on Hygiene.

Our guests and our team can be assured we are taking extra measures to maintain our reputation. We are doubling housekeeping staff for the foreseeable future in order to ensure a deep clean between changeovers. Our team are following strict government distancing guidelines that we have put in place here at Fishpool Cottages in order to keep us all safe.

We have decided to remove the ‘Meet and Greet’ part of your stay with us to ensure we can maintain distancing. Guests will be able to enter the properties with the keys we have placed in the agreed locations via telephone or email. We will continue to offer our personal service as much as we can while still following government guidance.

Queen Victoria spoke affectionately of nearby Tenbury Wells as “my little town in the orchard”. This northern pocket of Worcestershire still overflows with hops and cider apple trees. Stealing its name from the backdrop of ancient undisturbed woodland, the Holiday Cottage in Tenbury Wells and its surrounds make a natural family home – for both frazzled humans and local badgers.

Winding your way up the track to this converted stable, you catch glorious glimpses of the Teme and Kyre valleys; on arrival, you’re greeted by neighbour and owner, cheerful, thoughtful Ellie. Generous windows flood rooms with light, which bounces off polished elm floorboards; a wood-burner and Aga keep things cosy, the kitchen is handcrafted, the views are long and bucolic. Upstairs, bedrooms are brass-bedded and floral, tucked under the eaves in that cottagey way. You get a handy loo and basin up here, a sparkling bathroom with a roll top tub downstairs.

Lucky children have seven acres to romp in, and a secret treehouse complete with hammocks and barbecue for midnight feasts. Resting on the borders of three counties, this is prime walking country, while bustling Ledbury and Ludlow, England’s slow food capital, are just a drive away.
