Revive and reconnect

Live the high life at Hollybush Barn in the shadow of the Malvern Hills. Revive and reconnect with friends and family in Scandinavian-style comfort in front of roaring logs and escarpment views. There’s cricket and croquet in the private garden and long walks from the door

Live high on the hog

You’ve never had it so good. Hollybush Barn picture windows capture the dramatic rising escarpments of the Malvern Hills, the big skies and the sense of utter seclusion. One of four restored barns at Fairoaks Farm near Ledbury, Hollybush Barn is contemporary and cosy for four people looking to revive and reconnect.

The look is Scandinavian, the feel much warmer, thanks to underfloor heating and roaring logs that’ll put an instant crackle in the atmosphere. Outside, your own private garden stands ready for cricket and croquet duty before it blends with the nature trails and woodlands of the 300-acre estate and morphs into the Malverns.

From the door, you can take a six-mile hike along the hilltops or just a two-mile trot to the local pub for real ale and great gastro. Come back and surround yourself with sound with the Bose stereo. Keep in touch on the free wifi. Or make it a movie night with the DVDs and wall TV. Just add popcorn.

At bedtime, you’ll all sleep like woodland logs in two double bedrooms. There’s a luxury king size and a double that converts to twins in a jiffy with the zip-and-link system. You can revitalise in the morning in the luxury shower. Hollybush Barn is a little patch of clover where everyone can live high on the hog.

"Just a quick note to say what a fantastic time we had at Hollybush Barn. It was the perfect size for our family holiday and such a fab location.” - Lisa

Trails, hikes and skates

Wake up to wild woodland trails, hilltop hikes and riverside rambles. Meander the medieval alleyways of ancient Ledbury. Or ride Land Rovers over ridges at Eastnor Castle. Kids can get their skates on at Ice Quest Malvern or crack the code at the Malvern Hills Spy Mission Treasure Trail.
