  • “Excellent location with views of ...”
    Excellent location with views of the Malverns and a cottage presented in immaculate condition. ...
    Excellent location with views of the Malverns and a cottage presented in immaculate condition. The Good: 1. Excellent comfortable beds 2. High quality kitchen with every amenity 3. Cosy lounge with excellent TV options (Freeview/Amazon Firestick/Apple TV) 4. Super efficient heating and hot water 5. 15 mins walk to the main shopping/restaurant area 6. Morgan pub nearby very friendly and cosy 7. Good range of local food shopping and take away foods within 500 yards 8. Ideally located to get to all walks and towns such as Worcester/Cheltenham and Hereford What you also need to know (not necessarily bad but you should be aware) 1. Its a dormer so space on one side of each of the bedrooms is compromised, position the smallest person on that side if your prone to getting up in night! 2. Shower space is very tight due to the dormer, I am 6 ft tall and my head when stood straight touched the roof when in the shower, toilet in the same bathroom you need to be aware so you don't bang your head 3. Parking is tight...You need to be good at reversing as there is pressure from the traffic that goes down the road. Take your time, if you have rear parking sensors then ideal. My car is an Audi Q3 (not a huge car) anything bigger will hang out over the path 4. The house is at the low point in terms of sea level for Great Malvern, no issue but it means that a walk up to town is all uphill and relatively steep near the top end so if you have mobility issues you should be aware.

About the location

MALVERN

Ledbury 7 miles; Worcester 10 miles; Hereford 23 miles.

The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills form a 9-mile range of ancient rock, which offers 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways with natural springs and long distance views in all directions. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Malvern has individual shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants, a luxurious spa and it’s own micro brewery. It is also just a short drive from the Three Counties Showground which hosts regular events most notably RHS Malvern (May), The Royal Three Counties Show (June) and the Malvern Autumn Show (September). The town is the home of the Morgan car which makes this area popular with motoring enthusiasts. The Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The more energetic can try many outdoor activities including high ropes, climbing and abseiling. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards to visit in the area. The picturesque Forest of Dean with its range of attractions is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester offering modern amenities is a 20 minute drive away.
