Cider Mill Cottage
Cider Mill Cottage, Ayngstree, Clifton upon Teme, Worcester, Worcestershire, WR6 6DS
Head down the private farm track and you will find Cider Mill Cottage; set in this secluded and beautiful location of the Teme Valley Worcestershire. Built in 1820’s the cottage stands in the private grounds of Ayngstree House, and is part of the small and private hamlet of Ayngstree. Cider Mill Cottage offers wonderful self catering accommodation for up to 3 people. Children over 5 years. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
Until the late 1960’s the mill was used for crushing apples and storing grain. It has now been cleverly restored to create a perfect holiday retreat where you can relax and unwind in the unspoilt Teme Valley or venture out and explore the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.
Cider Mill Cottage is a delightfully quirky mix of old and contemporary with the mill wheel taking centre stage in the open planned living area.
The sitting room offers the cosy welcome of exposed oak beams and a multi-fuel wood burning stove, vintage dining area with log store and the kitchen which has a newly fitted heat storage AGA and modern appliances.
The modern spiral staircase leads up to a gallery landing and two bedrooms and bathroom. The bedrooms are a mix of antique, vintage and modern fittings, and offer our guests comfortable and cosy accommodation.
Welcoming goodies on your arrival of bread, milk and homemade jam. All you need to do is decide whether to venture outside to enjoy excellent walking routes through the wonderful countryside which start straight from the doorstep, or to curl up with a book in front of the wood burning stove and enjoy the peace.
