Worcestershire

Worcestershire, at the heart of England’s countryside, is a beautiful rural region that is ideal for relaxing country cottage holidays and a place that can be enjoyed by families and couples alike.

There are lots of holiday activities and charming places here, from beautiful gardens and animal parks to the birthplace of an iconic car, there’s even a theatre in a converted loo!

It’s a county best known for its swathes of stunning scenery, but there’s also lots of things to do and places to visit too. For a great family day out, the West Midlands Safari and Wildlife Park at Bewdsley is just one of a few animal parks in the area. Or for a relaxing spectacle, Witley Court has fountains timed to come to life each hour of the day as well as a uniquely beautiful Rococo church. A cottage holiday here provides the perfect base for exploring the county on foot, by car or cycle. Or maybe relax aboard a vintage steam or diesel train on the Severn Valley Railway.

Visit Worcester’s superb Cathedral, regularly used for services of worship as well as a striking building in its own right. See for yourself why the Snowshill Collection near Worcester is described as “a collection of just about everything” or why people are so flushed with praise for the Theatre of Small Conveniences, in a converted public toilet in Malvern. There’s a unique collection of exotic plants as well as a deer park set amid 300 acres of Victorian splendour at Spetchley Park Gardens.

Monkey around at Go Ape High-Wire Forest Adventure in the Wyre Forest! Families will be spoilt for choice when you consider all the other activities on offer like ice-skating, go-karting, kayaking, wind-surfing and much more, and of course there are wonderful walking routes, both challenging and gentle, all around the county.
