Fodor's Review

Just outside the village of Much Marcle, 4 miles southwest of Ledbury, lies the beautiful 17th-century manor of Hellens, kept like a time capsule in virtually unspoiled condition. The gloom and dust are part of the experience of visiting; candles illuminate the interior and there's no central heating. Part of the house dates from the 13th century and contains fine old-master paintings. Take a walk in the gardens and, if you have time, also check out the 13th-century village church. The house is ½ mile east of A449.
