The Perfect Wedding Venue

We cannot thank Diana and Bill Herford and their team enough for the warm welcome they extended to us over our family wedding at Upper Court in mid July. The house and gardens are absolutely beautiful, imaginatively and thoughtfully maintained, and the perfect backdrop to a weekend of celebrations. From a Friday night barbecue (organised with the local pub) in the walled garden, to the tea on the croquet lawn after the church service on Saturday and the magical lakeside setting of the tent for dinner and dancing that evening, we could not have asked for more. The accommodation in and around Upper Court suited us perfectly and we were made to feel entirely at home by all the staff. Special thanks to Elaine and to Will Cook who couldn’t have done enough to help us, going the extra mile at every point. I’d like to do it all over again but in slow motion this time – it was truly memorable!


Holiday filled with memories

I first stayed here about 37 years ago on a family holiday. I’m now visiting again with my daughter and my Dad. I now live in Australia so have particularly enjoyed the beautiful English setting here at Upper Court. Diana and Bill are as hospitable as ever. The accommodation so elegant and comfortable. The garden is stunning. We have enjoyed the long summer evenings, croquet, local pub meals (The Crown at Kemerton and the Fox and Hounds in Bredon are a must). A visit to Sudely Castle was equally worthy of a visit. I definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

A great review for Courtyard Cottage

“This was such a fantastic house in the most idyllic setting. It had everything we needed and more and they were so attentive to our needs. We had a mini wifi issue and it was fixed straight away by the dedicated team. If you are thinking of hiring this place for a hen I couldn’t recommend it more – it’s v clean, beauitful with so much to do on the door step and great for summer evenings outside in the gardens. Cheltenham is close enough for a night out, the pottery class and suitable hen themed games were fantastic and it was such a sociable lay out, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Thank you Diana and Petra for making it so special. ”
