After the day’s adventures, choose from four well-appointed bedrooms to relax in the evenings.On the ground floor, the main house has a king-size with en-suite shower room, and a children’s feature Thomas the Tank Engine bunk room, along with a cloakroom, whilst a beautiful king-size rests upstairs; original beams, a small sitting area, a bespoke feature stained glass window and an en-suite shower room make this a fabulous master bedroom!

You’ll find a shop and a couple of pubs just around the corner in Blakedown to stock up on essentials or take a break from cooking, along with Churchill & Blakedown Golf Club!
The local train station is just opposite to leave the car at home and explore further afield; Stourbridge and Kinver are nearby, where attractions include the National Trust’s Kinver Edge and the Rock Houses.
Stop for lunch in Bewdley before venturing into the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve, an ancient forest with picnic areas, walking and cycling trails, and a café.

The Severn Valley Railway is another brilliant day out to traverse through idyllic countryside on a heritage railway, but if you’re looking for more walking opportunities with your dogs, Clent Hills and Lickey Hills are two nature reserves well-worth a ramble.
