Rhydd Barn is a self-catering holiday cottage converted from a stone barn three miles east of Malvern with wonderful views to the Malvern Hills. The barn was built in the 1850s out of Malvern granite and in 2005 it was sympathetically restored and converted into light, open and airy accommodation across three levels. The decor is based around simple clean lines with tiled and wood floors, white walls with pine beams and black iron work. The barn benefits from gas central heating and wi-fi. Please click on the ‘Photos’ link above to see our pictures of the barn.

There are three levels: the ground floor is a large open plan sitting/kitchen/dining room. Above that, the first floor comprises another sitting room with high vaulted ceiling and views to the Malvern Hills and a double bedroom with high quality ensuite bathroom. There is also a second floor mezzanine area with a desk and sofa bed. As well as the ensuite bathroom there is a shower room with toilet on the ground floor.

Outside the barn there is a private sunny patio with views to the Malvern Hills looking across fields which belong to the barn.
