About the location

HANLEY CASTLE

Upton-upon-Severn 1.5 miles; Malvern 5 miles; Worcester 10 miles.

This ancient Worcestershire village lies in beautiful countryside between the riverside town of Upton-upon-Severn, the striking town of Malvern and the Malvern Hills. The village has a village green and a 15th century timbered pub, and was a former Royal hunting area of King John and is this also where, reputedly, P G Woodhouse based several stories. The pretty town of Upton-upon-Severn lies on the banks of the River Severn and boasts a variety of delightful 17th century buildings and attractive shops, including 'The Pudding Shop', traditional inns and cafes and its very own museum. It also plays host to many annual festivals, including Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, as well as the Sunshine Music Festival. This small, thriving town has its own marina, a vineyard and a well-stocked farm shop at the local fruit farm, plus the town’s medieval church, which is now a Heritage Centre, is topped by a striking 18th century cupola, known locally as 'The Pepperpot'. Also close by is the beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern and the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills offer 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways, and forms a nine-mile range of ancient rock. The Great Malvern Food Festival in June is well worth a visit, as are the many events at the Three Counties Show Ground and the Malvern Theatre, which welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. There are many National Trust properties and gardens in the area, as well as outdoor activities to suit all abilities.
