Worcestershire

This part of England offers a wealth for visitors to see, so book a holiday cottage in Worcestershire and relax every night in the comfort of your own home from home. The natural areas in this ancient county, stretching from the Malvern Hills to the valleys of the Teme and Severn rivers, include the gardens and orchards of the Vale of Evesham, the Wyre Forest, the Lickey Hills, perched on the edge of Birmingham, and the remains of the once-great abbeys and priories of Evesham, Pershore, Little and Great Malvern

Worcestershire's progress from pre-historic times, through civil strife in the 17th century, to the social changes of the industrial era may be seen in the fascinating open-air Avon Croft Museum near Bromsgrove. The museum features original houses and buildings brought to and rebuilt on the site. Please note: as picturesque as some of Avon Croft's buildings might be, none of them (as yet) can be booked for a self-catering holiday!
