Perrycroft, an Arts and Crafts House
designed by CFA Voysey
Perrycroft was designed by the architect C F A Voysey, and was built in 1895 for John W Wilson, a Birmingham industrialist and Member of Parliament. Set in the magnificent scenery of the Malvern Hills, today Perrycroft stands remarkably untouched by time, a romantic and secluded haven with far reaching views over rolling Herefordshire towards Wales.
Perrycroft was built as a family house, modest and comfortable, and it remains a welcoming and homely place in a beautiful part of the country. Offering a rare opportunity to visit a Voysey house, the house and garden are open to groups by appointment during May, June and September, and individuals may visit on one of our Open Days.
Visitors may also stay in the peaceful grounds of Perrycroft, in one of our three holiday cottages, with direct access both into Perrycroft garden and onto the footpaths of the Malvern Hills. The Lodge at the top of the drive is a Voysey cottage, a chance to stay in a house designed by this important Arts and Crafts architect. The Old Stables is part of the original Voysey designed stable yard, a family friendly base from which to explore the Malvern Hills area. Garden Cottage, formerly the gardener’s cottage for Perrycroft, was originally a quarryman’s cottage, and sits on the edge of the grounds with direct access on to the Hills.
We look forward to welcoming you to Perrycroft.
