One of TripAdvisor’s Top Ten holiday lets in 2022, The Well House is rich in characterful original features, as well as being perfectly located amongst unspoilt, rolling Worcestershire countryside.
Secluded on a four-acre farm estate, you’ll be surrounded by pear, apple, and olive trees in the farm’s orchard, for the ultimate rural escape from everyday life. Add a wood-fired garden hot tub, and that’s sunset-watching and stargazing nicely covered, too.
Inside awaits pure romantic idyll, with exposed timber and brickwork adding rustic charm, and a wood-burning stove in the original brick fireplace to help warm your evenings up nicely.
By day, you could bask in the natural light that floods cheerfully in through full-height windows, or step through the ancient, beautifully fortified doors to your furnished al fresco space… complete with a charcoal barbecue for sizzling suppers.
But if you’re dining inside, you’re in for a treat! The jewel of The Well House’s crown is its showstopping dining table, crafted from a 40-foot well with a gleaming glass top and mesmerising lighting.
After an evening of good food, good wine, and conversation, the dreamy master bedroom will be ready with a double bed to curl up in. From here, you can access the elegant bathroom, which features a roll-top bathtub waiting to be filled with indulgent bubbles.
Follow that sound night of slumber with a relaxed morning coffee out in the garden, amidst a chorus of birdsong and whispering trees.Keep reading

Prefer a slap-up meal cooked by someone else? The village of Aston Fields is around a mile away, and bursting with great places to eat. Try The Queen’s Head, a bustling restaurant and country pub accessed by a stroll along the canal.
