    About this property

    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! 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.

      Lovely place

      We had a great week here in Sept/Oct. Really nice to have the extra lounge - we used the front one in the day and switched to the cosy lounge with the log burner in the evening. Despite the dodgy weather we spent time sitting outside as soon as the sun came out. Lovely to watch the various little birds fitting about on the feeders. Would certainly stay again.

        Lovely, Spacious Cottage – Ideal Location for the Fisherman

        Just the two of us enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing week at Bank Cottage and after reading reviews from previous guests, we were delighted to find that it most definitely did live up to everything (and more), that we had expected and hoped for. Primarily chosen for its wonderful location and easy access to the River Severn, Bank Cottage is a fisherman’s dream. The fishing all week, was excellent and being able to just nip out of the door early in the morning and watch the sun rise over the water, whilst catching a variety of decent sized fish, (including a personal best 10lb 12oz Barbel - on a float rod), was just heaven. The cottage itself, is spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable and the garden / balcony area is the ideal spot for relaxing and taking in the beautiful sights of the river, birds, horses and wildlife. We have already made bookings for further stays and are looking forward to return visits to this lovely, historic cottage and peaceful surroundings. We would recommend this property, so thank you Alison.

          Bank Cottage

          A really lovely cottage and if you like fishing it’s perfect, but mind it’s very deep 12’ to 15’. Local pubs serve good food & ale. I can recommend Bank Cottage for a great holiday

          5/5 Excellent


            This cottage has everything and more. Real home from home. We will definitely recommend it to friends n family and we will keep in mind for the future. Thank you Alison
