The Millhouse

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 3 bathrooms
Whimsical rabbit portraits oversee the action at this beautifully restored retreat on a former model farm in England’s rolling Malvern Hills. Built in the 19th century as part of a larger estate, the villa is now part of the 150-acre Fairoaks property and one of 4 buildings that can be reserved. Just beyond the grounds, the hills offer plenty of paths for walking, and there’s a pub 2 miles away.
Start mornings with a coffee in a private garden with views stretching toward the quaint villages of the Cotswolds, then move outside for a game of cricket or croquet on the lawns, or go for a swim in the shared indoor pool. Come evening, toss one of the provided logs on the log burner and get cozy.
The villa is laid out over 3 floors, with 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, 1 bedroom on the top floor, and an open-concept living area in between. Interior designer Sarah Mason used the bunny wallpaper as a playful starting point for the look of the sitting area, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen.
Pack a picnic for a walk in the Malvern Hills, home to some of the oldest rocks in the country—and some spectacular views as well. It’s a 2-mile walk to the nearest pub and a 5-mile drive to the biweekly market in the town of Ledbury. Cheltenham makes for a great day trip, especially during its literary festival, as do the Cotswolds.
