Great Malvern & The Malvern Hills
One of the great geographical landmarks of England, The Malvern Hills can be seen from far and wide. Only 15 minutes away by car you can explore them at your leisure on a walk, jog or bike ride. The views from the top are superb. Stop for lunch and a well-deserved drink at the renowned Malvern Hills Hotel. Situated at the foot of the hills is the lovely town of Great Malvern with the Malvern Theatre and the Three Counties Showground.

Also within easy reach are the Wye Valley (Symonds Yat, Goodrich Castle, Tintern Abbey and the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye), the Forest of Dean, and Chepstow Castle.
The Rose and Crown at Redmarley is within walking distance at the bottom of our lane which is a good pub to have a drink in. For an outstanding dinner we recommend The Three Choirs in Newent (20 minutes). The following restaurants are also very good: The Moody Cow at Upton Bishop (15 minutes), The Butcher’s Arms at Eldersfield (15 minutes), The Inn at Welland (20 minutes), The Swan at Hanley Swan (20 minutes) and The Olive Tree in Ledbury (10 minutes). We strongly recommend that you book in advance.
In addition to the Malvern Hills there are plenty of footpaths from the house taking in the immediate area.
