Full Description
Arriving along the topiary lined drive, The Parsonage appears with its wisteria framed entrance. This grand country manor will whisk you away to a wonderland of distinguished style with both finely detailed interiors and carefully manicured grounds. Inside, a host of pristine living rooms and bedrooms suit a range of family gatherings or friendly celebrations, and in the garden you will find the undisturbed hot tub on a quiet terrace.

Once you step into The Parsonage you will find you won’t want to leave. First impressions are made in the sublime entrance hall with marble flooring and columns, raising your expectations for the rest of this manor house. You are met in the sumptuous sitting room by plump sofas around the warming fire while the adjacent orangery will be your favourite spot for bright summer evenings and glasses of champagne. Invite a private chef to prepare meals in the traditional country styled kitchen, to be served in the handsome dining room. With a plethora of sitting areas throughout you can always find a quiet spot for yourself before retiring to one of the bedrooms. Velvet headboards, eye-catching furnishings and swathes of luxurious curtains these rooms do not disappoint.

Quiet morning walks in the garden are met with characterful topiary and inspiring views to the Malvern Hills. Host a teddy bears picnic for the children or play garden games with the grandeur of the Grade II listed Parsonage sitting behind you. The pond provides a peaceful retreat and there is plenty of seating for dining al fresco and making the most of your time here. Hidden in a quiet spot, the 7-seater hot tub is the icing on the cake where you can relax beneath the twinkling lights. For days out Worcestershire delivers stunning stately homes, Hartlebury Castle and the West Midlands Safari Park will keep everybody entertained no matter their age. For a touch of class, visit the Morgan Factory and take a drive around the Malvern Hills.

Living Room:
Looking out to the topiary garden, the elegant living room has been finished with decadent swathes of lavish curtains, button back armchairs and a large stately mirror above the open fire.

Owner Recommendations
From spending time in the secluded hot tub to soaking in the views of the Malvern Hills with a picnic from the lawned garden, enjoying the 12 acres of grounds at The Parsonage is an exclusive experience.

A short walk brings you into the quaint village of Ombersley, a bustling and pictruesque spot with a host of eateries from friendly pubs such as The Cross Keys to a country deli and kitchen at Checketts. We recommend a visit to The Venture In which is a fantastic choice for fine dining where the service and atmosphere are excellent. You are also within easy reach of several farm shops with butchers, locally grown fruit and vegetables and a range of artisan produce from the county. Bring back all the ingredients for your favourite meal and let the chef of your group cook up a feast in the fabulous kitchen at The Parsonage.

Worcestershire is a treasure trove of National Trust properties with Hanbury Hall, Croome Court, The Firs and Greyfriar’s House and Garden all within easy reach. Spend a day soaking in the culture and heritage of this area and visit the nearby cathedral city of Worcester with its riverside walks and timber framed buildings for a spot of retail therapy.
