Historic Detached Cottage, On The Bank of The River Severn Nr Upton & Malvern

Waterfront Cottage with kitchen and balcony

Note: fishing season closed from 16 march to 16 June every year! ++DOG FRIENDLY++

Approached by a narrow, short lane, beautiful Bank Cottage is but 20 metres from the River Severn. There are spectacular views to be seen across the river and the flood plain opposite, particularly from the patio, lounge and front facing rooms. It's like looking at your own personal Constable picture! Peace and tranquillity.

The cottage is over 250 years old, and formerly used by the local ferry man to get people across the river. A number of original features have been kept, adding to its charm. These include exposed oak beams, old style doors with lift-up latches upstairs, and a small inglenook with a log burner in the cosy second lounge at the back of the house.

The garden runs parallel to the river, providing 70 metres of fishing and mooring rights. A jetty has been constructed with safe access down to the water's edge, along with a slipway. Bring your own canoe or small boat!

The cottage and its location are ideal for all wild-life enthusiasts, bird watchers and fishermen. In fact, fishermen could literally cast a line from the balcony if they so wished! You need your own fishing permit. Fishing season is 16 June-16 March. No fishing permitted out of season. Heavy fines and equipment confiscated.
On holiday here, you may want to just sit on the terrace and relax, read, or look at the view, perhaps waving to people on boats as they pass by. It is so peaceful and relaxing.

On the other hand, for those who enjoy exploring new areas, there is a lot of choice. The Malvern Hills are great for walkers and ramblers. Upton upon Severn and Worcester are both only a short drive away. Upton hosts various festivals, including the world renowned Upton Jazz Festival. The historic city of Worcester is well worth a visit. The Three Counties Show ground, only 4 miles away, also hosts many well known annual events. The Morgan car factory is 10 minutes' by car.

It is a 4 bedroom cottage but the fourth bedroom as a locked store room for landlord's needs. The holiday accommodation is arranged as follows:-

Master bedroom ('wow' room as it spectacularly overlooks the river) has a double bed.
The second bedroom is a large room and also overlooks the river and has three single beds. There is a lot of free floor space in this room which would possibly be useful for a cot. We can provide a cot and/or travel cot. We also have a high chair.
The third bedroom, also a large room, has a double bed and a large single sofa bed. There is room for a cot in all bedrooms . There is a large family bathroom with walk in shower cubicle and separate bath. All rooms are furnished to a high standard.

The cottage is suitable for 8 people but as you can see, with 5 beds and one sofa bed, there is ample flexibility with the bedding arrangements.
We have a balcony overlooking the river and this is accessed from the 'summer lounge' with its reclining leather suite. This lounge is open plan with the dining room containing a large oak dining table and chairs for 8 people. The kitchen is also open plan to this, and has an island breakfast bar that accommodates seven bar stools, and is fully fitted with all appliances. It also has a utility area, with a washing machine and also a downstairs WC with wash basin. This leads to the second lounge (we call it the 'winter lounge') has an inglenook fireplace with log burner and another reclining leather suite. This is a very cosy room. There is full central heating, and an ample supply of seasoned logs is provided.

There is a large balcony with table and chairs for 8 people. Its proximity to the river and the stunning views makes it one of the the main features of the property. There are also two other patio areas and a large lawn. A gas barbecue is also provided.

There is a TV in each of the two lounges, the kitchen and two of the bedrooms and there is free WIFI access.

There is easy parking for at least four cars.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Excellent location with great fishing from the garden. Lovely views of the river from one of the sitting rooms and breakfast area. Log burning fire with free wood for when it's cold was a bonus. The house has everything you need for self catering including utensils and crockery. Tea and coffee was provided along with an amazing cake as a welcome gift. Communication with the owner was great and we were made to feel at home from the off. The grounds the house sits in are lovely and well maintained. We loved our break here and would definitely return.

lovely holiday
Everything was perfect.

Relaxing break
Great location right on the river. Spacious accommodation with amazing views over the river to watch the sunrise and sunset. Large secure garden for the children to play in. Fishing good plenty bream, roach and perch. So relaxing sat out watching the boats go by. Easy drive to Great Malvern and Upton on Severn. Glorious weather all week. Visited Tewkesbury and saw the elephant sculptures - the children loved them. Thankyou Alison

5/5 Excellent

Lovely little cottage for a short getaway
Me and my friends were looking for an isolated property in the country so we could get away from the hassles of work and COVID and this cottage Alison has lived up to that billing! It was incredibly clean and presented when we arrived and was easy to maintain! A very homely cottage that did feel like a second home for us. The location was lovely with a short drive / taxi to the city of Worcester and a good selection of pubs on offer which were walking distance! Overall a very lovely place which we may soon come back to. Alison also left us a lovely welcome surprise and was easy to get in touch if we had any questions about the property! A very lovely host. Would 100% recommend 😊

5/5 Excellent

Spacious, Gorgeous and Tranquil
This is a beautiful large Cottage. Everything that may be needed (and more) was thoughtfully provided by the Owner Alison, plus a lovely welcoming gift on arrival, much appreciated. Very clean and comfortable. (Even electric fans are available in case they should be needed). The garden is big and secure. Immediately outside the garden is a pleasant path, which is ideal for walking dogs. The river runs just beyond this, and lovely for watching boats cruising along. Fishing can also be enjoyed from a private mooring. A perfect and relaxing holiday.
