About Rosedene

A great spot for watching birds and butterflies near the Clent Hills with miles of walking trails nearby.

A truly unique opportunity to step back in time and experience staying in one of the few remaining Chartist cottages in the UK. ·This Grade II listed red-brick cottage remains largely unchanged since it was first occupied by early Chartists. The Victoria era was a time of remarkable British political change, which is brought back to life at Rosedene.·An organic garden is maintained at the front of the cottage with seasonal fruit and vegetables, and an orchard flourishes at the back of the house.This plot of land would have originally been allocated to the first occupants of the house for cultivation to supplement their diet and income.·Staying here is like having the experience of camping within walls, and all amenities are present in the property.

Rise early and take a walk to Chadsley Woods Nature Reserve, where its history can be traced back to the 13th centrury and is a great place for birdwatching and buterflies.  The Clent Hills and Waseley Hills Country Park are just six miles away from the cottage, with beautiful views and walks to explore with breathtaking panoramic views.

Located near the town of Bromsgrove, Rosedene is an ideal base to explore all the major towns, cities and attractions in the area including several National Trust properties.  Birmingham, Kidderminster and Worcester are within 30 minutes, there are several attractions suitable for the whole family close by as well.  Cadbury World, Stourport, The West Midlands Safari Park, Bewdley and The Wyre Forest Nature Reserve are all within 15 miles of Rosedene.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
