Grade II listed Ciderstone Cottage, in Mathon, near Malvern, is believed to date from the 16th century. Extended and modernised in the 1970s, it has been well maintained since.

On the ground floor there is a large reception area with guest cloakroom and toilet. The main sitting room has an inglenook fireplace, wood burning stove and ceiling beams. There is also a dining room, large fitted kitchen, a study and a sun lounge separate to the main cottage. A cellar offers further space.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, the master being en-suite, and a family bathroom.

The gardens surrounding the house have been well tended and there is a small stream running through the grounds which feeds the duck pond. There are also paddocks to three acres and a detached garage.
