STAY WITH US
Barton Court forms the heart of a country estate that goes back hundreds of years. 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 property is made up of the principal dwelling (the main house), The Clock Tower and a cluster of ancillary buildings can be rented for short breaks, weddings and events, altogether, in various combinations or separately. We specialise in weekend rentals so rest assured your every need will be catered for. Please do read about our fabulous accommodation below and take a look at our gallery for some more images of Barton Court and its grounds. We are also making way for more fabulous accommodation here at Barton Court including a funky pad in our amazing original toolshed….watch this space and sign up to our newsletter for all the latest developments.
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 1950s 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 ensuite bathrooms and one family shower room. Three separate cloakrooms - two on the ground floor ensure that there are no queues for the loos.
Once the head gardener's cottage, this bijou little house has been carefully restored to make it as comfortable as it is charming.
It has everything that a couple [with their dog] could need: a cosy sitting room with a log burner; a comfortable bedroom with lovely views; a well equipped kitchen and a good shower room. There is even a second loo, an enclosed dog run and a little patio area.
THE LOOSE BOX
What used to be the home of Tarquin and Rocket, beloved horses belonging to the estate, is now a funky 2 bedroomed unit suitable for up to 6 people.
We have left all the original features intact - including the stables, bridal hooks and name plates - and just gently tidied it up. It is full of character and very comfortable, great for a family or a small group of singletons.
There are two bedrooms [one very tiny], each with zip and link beds and an ensuite shower room. There are two comfortable sofabeds in the sitting room, along with plenty of ancillary seating and a dining table and chairs for 6.
The kitchen has all the toys, including a double oven, dishwasher and wine fridge and you can park outside.
