From gentle strolls to day-long rambles, there's nowhere
better for a walking holiday than a cottage in the Malverns.
Exceptionally beautiful, the Malvern Hills form a dramatic ridge
along the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border - nine miles of
ancient rocks crisscrossed with around 100 miles of paths to
explore at your leisure, plus natural wells to quench your thirst
with spring water. The views will blow your mind - some say you can
see fifteen counties from the top of Worcestershire Beacon!
Such untamed beauty has inspired great names like Lewis,
Tolkein, Auden and the region's celebrated son Elgar, who
composed his masterpiece 'Pomp & Circumstance' in
honour of these slopes. Today, you too can marvel at this truly
wild - indeed truly spine-tingling natural landscape.
You may opt to book a Malvern cottage during the Malvern Hills
Walking Festival. Or to celebrate a special occasion - you could
even hire a classic car. Or perhaps you'd like to enjoy one of
the many other outdoor pursuits here - kite flying, mountain
biking, orienteering, horse riding, scuba diving and, for those
with no fear of heights, hang-gliding!
