The property, located within the remains of the old medieval city walls, is a Grade 2 listed building on a pedestrianised street dating from the Georgian period and is set in a conservation area adjacent to Worcester Cathedral. The composer Sir Edward Elgar, whose works include Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 (Land of Hope and Glory) and the Enigma Variations, lived here as a child in Victorian times.

“We had a fantastic holiday here this Christmas! Being right next to the Cathedral for Christmas services was wonderful and we were minutes away from the shops! The beds were really comfortable and the hot water was always available the shower was good too. Everything worked perfectly and the kitchen was fantastically well equipped – even for cooking a Christmas dinner for six! Thank you so much for making our stay so lovely!”
