  • “Sue and Bill were excellent hosts being very friendly, helpful and informative.”

    The welcome pack of fresh local bread, luxury biscuits and milk was very much appreciated.

    The welcome pack of fresh local bread, luxury biscuits and milk was very much appreciated. We were initially disappointed with the size of the cottage, the bathroom being very narrow and the kitchen comfortable with one person. However, the cottage was extremely well equipped and tastefully decorated. Generally we were only in the cottage in the evenings as out everyday exploring the area. For us the surprise delight was the magnificent walled garden, that would rival any N.T. property! It was huge with well stocked flower beds , a fish pond in the middle with several arbours over the pathways. We enjoyed taking our morning coffee there daily, sitting in the sun and having a stroll around before heading off for the day. The cottage is well located, being close to Malvern. We enjoyed driving and walking around the many villages admiring the the countryside and architecture of a bygone age with wonderful black and white homes. Lots of nearby towns to explore such as Ross on Wye, Tewkesbury, Ludlow, Worcester to name but a few. We were so lucky with to have a week of good weather, making it a most enjoyable holiday.

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.
