Brockencote Hall Country House
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This renovated Victorian property sits in 70 acres of private parkland, with a "lovely lakeside setting" (The Daily Telegraph)
- The 3-AA-Rosette fine-dining restaurant has an impressive cheese selection and uses honey from its own hives
- You can explore the spa town of Great Malvern or hike the Worcestershire Way
Brockencote Hall Country House is a grand manor house tucked away in 70 acres of "stunning" (The AA) parkland with its own lake, and surrounded by meadows with grazing sheep.
The 30-mile Worcestershire Way hiking trail starts at Bewdley, 15 minutes' drive from the hotel, and it runs all the way down to the spa town of Great Malvern.
Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, is 45 minutes' drive away. The Malvern Hills -- an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty sprawling across three counties -- can also be reached in 45 minutes. The cathedral city of Worcester is 25 minutes' drive away.
The AA Restaurant Guide 2019 praises the hotel's Chaddesley Restaurant for its "precisely executed modern dishes". The menu makes the most of local seasonal ingredients, including a hand-picked selection of cheeses and honey from the estate's own hives. Le Colonial Lounge, which has brilliant views of the surrounding parkland, is open for bar meals and light snacks.
Despite its size, this Victorian manor is intimate within, with only 21 bedrooms -- all individually decorated. All have DVD players (movies are available at reception), and there's free Wi-Fi, bottled water and snacks, plus fresh milk in the fridge for tea and coffee.
