Humblebee Hall, a listed Georgian farmhouse, is situated in a rural setting on the edge of The Vale of Evesham, Worcestershire’s ‘Heritage Garden’, one of the loveliest and most unspoilt rural areas in England. The area is famous for its blossom trails, asparagus, and fruit.
The Vale is watered by the graceful River Avon, as it flows down from Shakespeare Country to the river Severn. Humblebee Hall is in the very area that inspired the BBC radio series ‘The Archers’, and visitors can relax in the fine, ancient Old Bull pub at Inkberrow 4 miles away, where you can almost hear Tom Forrest at the bar ordering his pint.
Cheltenham Racecourse, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Cotswold's are less than 30 minutes away by car. The Royal Worcester Porcelain Museum, and Worcester Cathedral also nearby, are a must for every visitor to Humblebee.
We present our guests with four stunning accommodation properties available on site; two cottages- The Old Stables, & The Hay Barn, an annex flat set on the side of the magnificent listed farmhouse- The Granary, and our newly renovated Treehouse, the perfect spot to be at one with nature and get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life!
All have been renovated with great skill, and care under strict supervision from a conservation architect. Humblebee Hall is centred within 70 acres of pasture with horses and sheep grazing within the farm.
