About the neighbourhood
Local country pubs and restaurants serve great locally sourced food and drinks. Upper Sapey Golf Course (27 holes) is at the end of our lane, a three day event course even closer, a local gym, horse riding school and fishing nearby, Shelsley Walsh hillclimb (the oldest motor racing event in the world) two villages away and the Worcestershire Way (36 miles) is on the doorstep. Children may like West Midlands Safari Park and the Severn Valley Railway. English Heritage look after Witley Court (7 miles), the remains of a vast and rambling palatial mansion with its magnificent grounds and restored fountains. Next door is an amazing Italianate baroque church and its tearooms. Can I bring my own horse with me? Yes, you can. We have stables and our own paddocks. We also have two friendly horses... more
