Orchard Cottage sits in a glorious setting at the end of a no through lane within the small and peaceful village of Dormston. The village lies in attractive rolling countryside to the East of Worcester between Inkberrow and Flyford Flavell. The village has its own pub and there are several local shops nearby as well as primary schools at Inkberrow and Flyford Flavell.

The M5 and M42 are also easily accessible for routes to the West Midlands.

There is also a boot room/utility, shower room, snug and study both having an abundance of charm. The first floor accommodation consists of 5 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room.
