A haven for walking and wildlife enthusiasts, the lovely Malvern Hills form the beautiful backdrop to the village of Castlemorton.

Rickyard Cottage enjoys a delightful position in Castlemorton at the foot of the undulating Malvern Hills. This charming holiday property affords incredible views of the hills, and the pleasant Castlemorton Common can be accessed directly from the rear of the cottage. The single-storey accommodation offers a light and airy living space including two bedrooms, a modern, compact galley style kitchen, a comfy sitting room and dining area that benefit from a warming and cosy wood burning stove, and an attractive conservatory which opens out onto a large private garden.

Rickyard Cottage is situated within the owner’s home’s grounds, and the surrounding Herefordshire and Worcestershire countryside offers wonderful walks right from the doorstep.


A Worcestershire delight
Rickyard Cottage is warm and welcoming and lives up to the billing on the Sykes website. Lying in the lee of the Malvern Hills, it's pretty isolated so a vehicle is essential, but the nearest pub is just a 15 minute stroll down a country lane. A well stocked shop and coffee house can be found in Welland about less than 2 miles away. The cottage's central heating is more than adequate, but there is a log burner too to add atmosphere. This is excellent walking country. Castlemorton Common, once infamous for an illegal rave, is just a couple of hundred yards from the cottage while the attractive towns of Ledbury and Great Malvern, with it's superb priory, excellent theatre and Morgan Car museum and shop are within a short car journey.

Lovely cottage in a great location, the owner was friendly and helpful.
Mrs Newson

The cottage was lovely and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The property was great - really well provisioned and very close to amazing walking routes. The owners said that they have put into the cottage all the things they wanted from years of staying in other people's cottages, and it shows. It really was lovely to stay there - I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Ms Williams

We liked everything about our holiday. Rickyard Cottage was peaceful and quiet and in a lovely location. The cottage was very good and the owners were very welcoming.
Mr Hooker

It was very comfortable, warm and cosy, with a well equipped kitchen for people who want to cook for themselves rather than eat out. Loved the conservatory, especially in the rain. It was situated right underneath the Malvern Hills with lovely views and easy access to the Worcestershire Way which was 15 mins on foot.
