Set on the banks of the River Severn this spacious cottage has plenty to keep guests entertained including wildlife spotting and private fishing.

The Ferryman’s Cottage offers a superb rural setting for those wishing to enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside, yet be within easy reach of a wide range of fun days out for all the family. Detached, it is located on the banks of the River Severn and Uckinghall Pool, and is fronted by the vast Uckinghall Meadow – an area designated a Special Wildlife Site on account of its natural beauty. Private fishing and mooring is available along a 1½-mile stretch of river, by arrangement with the owner.
Available locally are a wide range of leisure pursuits – choose from walking, swimming, theatres, cinema, restaurants, cricket, horse racing and golf. For interesting days out visit the elegant spa town of Cheltenham, with its majestic shopping promenade, pump rooms, galleries and museums, or head for the historical cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester. Stratford-upon-Avon, one of England’s best known towns, makes a delightful day trip. The birthplace of Shakespeare, Stratford is full of interesting places to visit, including the Royal Shakespeare Company Gallery, the World of Shakespeare and the National Teddy Bear Museum, which will appeal to all ages. Gloucester is home to one of the finest cathedrals in the world, as well as the interesting City Museum and the National Waterways Museum. Malvern and Upton-upon-Severn are also well worth a visit, host to the Malvern Theatre Festival and the International Jazz Festival respectively, while the Brecon Beacons, the Wye Valley and the Cotswolds are within easy reach. Shops 3 miles.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Ferryman's Cottage over New Year. The rooms were comfortable and provided a good mix of double beds and singles for our mixed family group. The bathrooms were all clean, modern and plentiful - there were five full bathrooms with showers and one additional toilet. The kitchen was clean and well equipped with plenty of plates, cutlery, pots and pans etc so it was easy to cater for the group. The living room was not really big enough to accommodate fourteen of us comfortably but the dining room sat us easily so we were able to use this area too. The WiFi was not great but adequate. The garden was well fenced so suitable for our dog and there was easy walking along the river directly from the cottage. The drive to the cottage was interesting with some significant puddles on the last bit of the lane/driveway but otherwise the location is conveniently close to the M5/M50 but has the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. Food at the nearby Railway Inn was excellent. All in all I'd recommend the cottage as somewhere that is well equipped, warm and comfortable and suited our needs as a convenient venue for a family get together.

    Our stay at Ferrymans Cottage was perfect, the garden is ideal with children and the setting of the house is beautiful. Kitchen was well equipped and the amount of bathrooms made getting ready easy with a large amount of people.

    We had a weekend gathering of friends from across the country. Everybody had a great time. The house was large enough for all to be comfy, and the location was wonderful, with the garden overlooking the river. The kitchen was well equpied and everything was in good working order.

    Excellently equipped. Safe for young children with good equipment for them. Good for walking. Nice pub nearby. If you like noisy & social it's not for you. Great if you like peace and quiet and space.

    We all had a fantastic time. The house was amazing, the children loved playing hide and seek and having a go on the piano. They even managed to get outside and play in the garden, we were very lucky with the weather. Everything we required was available in the cottage. We would definately come back again. The only downside for us were the beds were a little too soft, but that's just personal taste.
