Head down the private farm track and you will find Cider Mill Cottage; set in this secluded and beautiful location of the Teme Valley Worcestershire. Built in 1820's the cottage stands in the private grounds of Ayngstree House and offers wonderful self catering accommodation for up to 3 people. Children over 5 years. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
Until the late 1960's the mill was used for crushing apples and storing grain. It has now been cleverly restored to create a perfect holiday retreat where you can relax and unwind in the unspoilt Teme Valley or venture out and explore the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.
Cider Mill Cottage is a delightfully quirky mix of old and contemporary with the mill wheel taking centre stage in the open planned living area.
The sitting room offers the cosy welcome of exposed oak beams and Clearview wood burning stove, vintage dining area with log store and the kitchen which has a newly fitted heat storage AGA and modern appliances.
The modern spiral staircase leads up to a gallery landing and two bedrooms and bathroom. The bedrooms are a mix of antique, vintage and modern fittings, and offer our guests comfortable and cosy accommodation.
Welcoming goodies on your arrival of bread, milk and homemade jam. All you need to do is decide whether to venture outside to enjoy excellent walking routes through the wonderful countryside which start straight from the doorstep, or to curl up with a book in front of the wood burning stove and enjoy the peace.
The village of Clifton Upon Teme is 1 mile away and has a general store, a couple of pubs which serve food, and a church. A little further away is Martley ( 3 miles ) which has a post office, village shop and a car repair garage with petrol station (where they serve you your fuel).
