Set in a lovely location the picturesque village of Ombersley is the perfect blend of cosy pubs, quality restaurants and stunning countryside. The local architecture is a lovely mixture of period properties, barn conversions and new builds.
Despite its small size Ombersley can boast two beautiful churches – St Marcy’s and St Andrews. The latter, parish church to the village, stands next to the crossroads around which the village developed in medieval times. The church is the focus of worship and celebration for the village faithful and hosts regular services and events throughout the year particularly the Summer Fete and Harvest Festival which brings the community together for fun and food.
Ombersley is home to its own medical centre, chiropractor, physiotherapist and dental practice. Just 10 minutes from the market town of Droitwich Spa and the M5 and only 15 minutes to Worcester Parkway the village is the perfect choice for families and commuters who want a relaxed pace of life close to the bustle of the larger towns and cities.
At the heart of the village is the wonderful world of Checketts – the perfect pit stop for local and fresh produce. There is a quality butchers, delicious delicatessen as well as a coffee shop and kitchen so you can enjoy some refreshment before heading over to Oldfields of Ombersley a renowned country and equestrian centre.
Your friends and family will certainly want to come and visit you in this wonderful region and there are plenty of options for them to choose from. Our favourite is the nearby Ockeridge Rural Retreats which offers a number of stunning shepherds’ huts and log cabins which take glamping to a whole new level.
Golfers will love the friendly and relaxing atmosphere at the Ombersley Golf Club whilst cricketers have the opportunity to get involved at one of Worcestershire’s top cricket clubs where coaching is offered to all ages and abilities. Horse riders will love the facilities at Lincomb Equestrian or if fishing is more your thing the Woodland View Fishery is right on the doorstep.
This thriving village enjoys a laid back vibe but is ready to have some fun on the many occasions and events planned throughout the year. Parents of smaller children can take advantage of the Ombersley Endowment First School which offers preschool facilities and comprehensive child care while the Kings Hawford prep school is just a short drive away.
