Guest Comments
“I stayed in the Barn last weekend with friends. It was a perfect location for a weekend break - a lovely, cosy and beautifully fitted out property. The location is stunning and we did one of the walks from the property which was suggested by the owners - they had helpfully left details of a number of local walks and other local suggestions. Loved the location too - lovely rural area but only about 15 mins from Malvern, which was a great place for a wander and dinner in the evening. I would highly recommend staying here and would happily return.”

“Spent a lovely and relaxing weekend at Hop Pickers, Cabin. Louise was so friendly and helpful prior to and during our short stay. The cabin was clean and well furnished, the hot tub relaxing after long walks, lovey little welcome basket, lots to see an do around the area. A fantastic games room in the grounds which took us back to our childhoods! 10% of meals at the local friendly pub, the Bear at Rugged Staff. Highly recommend Hop Pickers and would advise longer than a 2 night break to really make the most of everything. Thank you Louise.”

“We came here for a birthday to get away from the noise and bustle of London. We chose the right place to do this - the cabin was very clean, warm, and welcoming. The hot tub was amazing even in the cold weather it was really nice and warm. You get a sense of serenity and calm as soon as you arrive till the moment you leave, and the area also had great walks. It's a really good "base of operations" if you're into walking... not very far from the Malvern hills. And our hosts were so accommodating and friendly - I would definitely recommend this place.”

“Every single detail thought of, bath robes, welcome pack, just absolutely perfect. Beautiful setting, not overlooked at all. Loved it so much that we added an extra night to our stay with no trouble or hassle - will definitely be back in the new year. Thank you :)”
Mr Smith, Kent - 17/12/2021 - UpFront Reviews
“Beautiful, well equipped cabin in serene surroundings. Felt private and quiet and perfect for a little break. Hot tub was a nice bonus too. Kitchen is full of all the tools to make a meal, and the cabin felt spacious. Wood fire is easy to use and plenty of instructions. The grounds are beautiful to take a walk around. Good location to do things and have a day out. Host was very easy to contact and helpful. Be sure to look at the sky if it's a clear night, we saw a shooting star!”
Mrs Patel, Birmingham - UpFront Reviews - 25/10/2021

“Excellent accommodation and host. ideally located for the Malvern Hills and surrounding country side. Would definitely recommend the Hoppickers Barn.”
Mrs Heath, Leicestershire - 03/09/2021 - UpFront Reviews
“I stayed in the bell tent with my daughter, which was luxuriously furnished and included our own private kitchen in a horse trailer, covered table outside and fire pit, with firewood provided. We also had the use of the kitchen in the games room, a full-sized fridge and a shower. The owners pay meticulous attention to detail, providing everything you could possibly need, and are very generous with the free mik, bread, eggs and even marshmallows. The outdoor swimming pool is lovely and the horses are friendly. A great site and location near Malvern and Worcester.”
Sarah Hurst - September 2021 - Google
“We spent a lovely five days with our children and dogs at Hoppickers. Whilst the weather wasn't quite as warm as we'd hoped (for late August!) it didn't dampen our spirits and there was still plenty to do. The children loved the tennis courts, games room and hot tub...and they liked seeing all the animals. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for somewhere to totally relax!”
Ms Wootton, Surrey - 01/09/2021 - UpFront Reviews
“Set in beautiful countryside near Malvern, Hoppickers is ideal for family groups particularly if you book the Cabin and Barn together. The properties are great but so are the swimming pool and games room. Unusually for outdoor pools, the pool is heated to a comfortable temperature around 25 degrees and we liked having exclusive swimming slots. Each day we looked at the times available and it was easy to plan around them. The horses and hens were fun to watch. Both Cabin and Barn are well equipped and each has a bbq. We enjoyed the peaceful nights and seeing the stars without the usual light pollution we get near cities. The shepherd's hut and Luxury tent would be good for couples and the properties are all positioned away from each other so there is privacy.”
Mrs Fenwick, Birmingham - 22/08/2021 - UpFront Reviews
“An amazing weekend break in the Hideaway Shepherds Hut. The perfect place to unwind and switch off, idilic location topped off with the hot tub looking out over the beautiful scenery. Louise the host was very helpful and made our break extra special. We will definitely be returning next year to this wonderful place.”
Mr Barnes, Gloucester. August 2021
“We had a wonderful relaxing weekend in the shepherds hut. ItâÄ™s in a lovely location: very peaceful, a real feel of getting back to nature. The hut was exceptionally clean and every little detail was thought of. We would definitely return.”
Ms Van Deventer, Shropshire. August 2021
“One of our favourite places. We always receive a very warm welcome here. The cabin is a delight and lovely and clean, everything you need. Beautiful setting, lovely countryside, plenty of walks on the doorstep, use of the great swimming pool. Lots to see and do in the area - if you wish it, but we were quite happy to stay close to the cabin and enjoy the sun and glorious surroundings/walks in the countryside. Roll on next year.”
Ms Broom, Norfolk. July 2021
“Lovely weekend, perfect place if you want some RNR. Lovely and quiet. Excellent facilities, owners were lovely. I would 100% visit here again xx”
