The Grooms House is set in a country location, perfect if you like the peace and quiet. There is plenty to do just 20 minutes drive away from local villages to walks to NT locations, even a church on your doorstep! The property itself was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The owners were very helpful, easy going and friendly.

The Groom's House is just what it says on the website- a lovely, cosy retreat in a very peaceful location but with easy access to the surrounding countryside and cities. It is kept well, clean and has everything you need for that restful holiday. The owners are really nice and helpful too!

We spent a long weekend here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. What a beautiful place. The cottage is comfortable and so very clean. The welcome from Rosemary and her family made us feel at home. The wildlife was adorable, the barn owl, deer, woodpecker and many other birds kept us entertained. We spent time sitting by the river watching...

About the neighbourhood
The Old Rectory offers a retreat from everyday life, combining breathtaking scenery with a timeless sense of history. As you approach The Old Rectory, via its secluded driveway, you will discover it set beside Strensham Church, overlooking the River Avon on one side and the Malvern Hills the other. Being surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land this will put you into holiday mood from the outset. Relax and watch the boats go by as you sip your complementary wine, taking in the panoramic vista and tranquillity. Alternatively by special arrangement you may wish to charter Narnia II, a 30ft narrow boat, moored at The Old Rectory; try your hand at operating the lock gates at Strensham and meander to the nearby Riverside Pub or cruise on to take in afternoon tea at historic Tewkesbury.
