Barton Court forms the heart of a country estate that goes back hundreds of years. Offering self catering holiday accommodation for groups and large families. It sits on the edge of the village of Colwall between Ledbury in Herefordshire and Malvern in Worcestershire with spectacular views of both counties. Surrounded by history and beauty, with the Malvern Hills as its backdrop, this lovely country house rental is private but not isolated.
Said by some to be Herefordshire's hidden gem, Barton Court is just up the road is the [much younger] well-known Eastnor Castle and within easy striking distance of all the attractions of the Three Counties.
The drawing room is magnificent, dominated by an exquisite 18th century plasterwork ceiling and with three floor to ceiling windows looking south over the fields. On the other side of the spacious entrance hall, the dining room seats up to 40.
Brought up from the basement after the Second World War, the kitchen, with its adjoining scullery, pantry and stillroom, is vintage 1950's but with modern appliances and plenty of kit and caboodle for large group cooking.
There are 10 bedrooms, 8 on the first floor and 2 on the ground floor, all individually decorated. Our beds are mostly zip and link to allow maximum flexibility and some rooms have daybeds as well. When you arrive, the beds are made up with hypoallergenic bedding and pristine linen. We provide a bath sheet and a hand towel for each guest.
Our bathroom fittings are hotel quality. Most are made by Grohe but the Master Bathroom boasts a Perrin and Rowe double rainfall shower and a Cast Iron Bath Company lit bateau. We have 8 en-suite bathrooms and one family shower room. Three separate cloakrooms - two on the ground floor ensure that there are no queues for the loos.
Barton Court is a magnificent Georgian country house and outbuildings on the western slopes of the Malvern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, close to the Herefordshire & Worcestershire border.
Situated close to the village of Colwall and its main line train station with direct trains from London Paddington, Birmingham New Street & Bristol Temple Meads.
