This weekend I was lucky enough to attend a wedding at some very good friends of mine at Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester. It was an amazing venue and great to catch up with some friends that I hadn’t seen in years. When I originally received the invite I immediately looked at the venue but it was a tad pricey, so I decided to shop around and see what I could find. I have used Booking.com a few times for various trips away so that was my first choice to look at. After I had sorted through a few hotels, I decided to sort through some apartments (@jackiehole always swears by them for value.)
I came across Pitmaston Apartments, which to be honest from the pictures looked too good to be true. It was perfect in that it was less than 3 miles from the venue and seemed quite central to Worcester. The apartment was based on the grounds of Pitmaston Primary School and appears to have been converted to a fantastic standard. On the journey down I ended up taking a detour to help Darren (a wedding photographer in his spare time) finish off prepping for his wedding (he organised the lot without telling his bride anything – brave man !!!). I hadn’t thought about check-in but when I called ahead they advised I didnt need to collect any keys and that two 4 digit codes was all I needed to gain access to apartment (very impressed at how easy this was).
Eventually I arrived at the apartments at 9.30pm after collecting some shopping from the local Co-op. The apartment pictures on the website didn’t disappoint and you can see the size from the videos and picture below.
I would wholly recommend people to stay at Pitmaston Apartments if you are in Worcester, not only due to standard of apartments, but also based on accessibility and location.
