Pitmaston House offers luxury self catering accommodation for any gathering of friends and family, whether it's for a week long holiday, a midweek break or a weekend away celebrating something special. This grand townhouse sits behind a high stone wall on a quiet street; the outlook from the back is over a park, so it's all nice and private. In the garden there's a 4m swim spa/hot tub, a fairylit heated dining pavilion with built-in seating, a TV, bbq, firepit and pizza oven, and new from April 2019, an outdoor gym/games area with cardio equipment and weights, table tennis, a pool table and a dartboard. The contemporary interiors blend seamlessly with elegant original architecture; sash windows, ornate cornicing, quirky fireplaces, plush velvety soft furnishings... it's sumptuous. 7 generously sized en suite bedrooms means there's snooze space for 14 people; downstairs are 3 reception rooms, and the old conservatory, which has been transformed into a huge and stunning open-plan living/entertaining space, with dramatic pillars and a part vaulted roof.
Pitmaston House is just 2 miles from the centre of Worcester, and within easy reach of Junctions 6 and 7 of the M5; very convenient for the stacks of things to see and do round here. Head off to the Cotswolds for the day, pootle about the honey coloured stone villages with charming names, like Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water; see the beautiful Slad Valley, the inspiration for Laurie Lee's 'Cider With Rosie'. Take a trip over to Housman's Shropshire Hills, visit the Black & White towns of Ludlow or Ledbury; go walking or cycling in the glorious Malvern Hills, take in historic houses like Eastnor Castle, Madresfield Court or Croome Court. Venture over to Royal Leamington Spa or Stratford-upon-Avon, catch a raceday at Worcester Racecourse, or have a family trip to the West Midland Safari Park. There's every chance that you'll all be so happy at Pitmaston House that you won't feel the need to go out anywhere, but you could just amble into Worcester; it's a lovely city and it's quite a treat to have a leisurely browse round one of the regular markets or the independent shops and boutiques.Take a stroll round Gheluvelt Park, or if you're feeling adventurous have a go on the zip wire at Cripplegate Park! Spend a few hours soaking up history and culture at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum; visit the ancient cathedral, or the quirky Greyfriar's House & Garden.
After dark you can go out and paint the town red among the bustling bars and clubs, or you might just prefer to get together for a hearty feast and pop a few corks. If it's not lashing it down you can all sit beneath the twinkly lights in the covered pavilion; get the barbecue or the pizza oven fired up, snuggle round the firepit wrapped in warm blankets. And whenever you fancy it, climb into the big hot tub and have a good soak; you'll be happy as Larry and you'll probably be out there chatting away 'til the small hours. That's exactly what Pitmaston House is all about; having fun, enjoying yourselves. It's a fabulous place for entertaining, providing the perfect setting for all kinds of celebrations - birthdays, anniversaries, hen weekends, family gatherings and exciting reunions. We'll raise a glass to that! Book your stay at this amazing house today!
