  • "We (3 senior ladies) stayed in this lovely 2nd floor apartment within a beautiful Jacobean mansion."

    Set within the hills in Malvern Wells, it is perfectly located for many hill walks: historical places of interest; lots of National Trust sites and, of course, Shakespeare’s birthplace and home. The views over the hills from the apartment were stunning. It is extremely well equipped and the owners, who were extremely nice and helpful, added little welcoming gestures of fresh flowers from their garden and cupcakes as well as some essential supplies to get us started. There are plenty of eateries within a short distance and a convenience store half a mile away. All In all a great week and we’d thoroughly recommend Haslington House. We should add that access to the apartment is by stairs - 10 outside wooden ones and then once inside there are 25 concrete stairs (some curved) and a further 10 carpeted ones into the flat. We didn’t find them a problem but they are not suitable those with mobility issues.

    Very convenient location backing on to the Malvern Hills and with spectacular views across the Severn plain. Plenty to do and see in the surrounding area and not too touristy.

  • "Could have been cleaner."

    Fairly dusty in places. Lighting was fairly poor. Needs stronger or more lights. Furniture is old and in poor state. It is described in places as antique, but It really just a collection of unwanted and old auction sale room items. Kitchen is functionally equipped. Could do with a better microwave and the ice compartment needs defrosting. Months plus side the views are spectacular, the heating keeps the place warm, there is lashings of hot water and geographically it is well placed for accessing the are.

  • "An outstanding location with breathtaking views from the flat."

    Spacious comfortable and warm accommodation with tasteful artistic touches including antique furniture. There were homemade cakes as well as flowers from garden awaited us on arrival. Basic kitchen utensils but new saucepans. Beware of Hob, as it doesn’t glow red when used, so a potential danger. The temporary oven is down on the floor and is very small, so has its’ limitations. There is no dishwasher or kitchen scales. The gravel drive up to the property from the road is steep and curves round- only wide enough for one car. The directions to the property are not detailed enough- so it is best to check with Google Earth before you depart for holiday. There are 4 flights of steep stairs from the parking area to the flat, but the owners kindly offered to carry up suitcases and Tesco delivery.

  • "We recently stayed at Haslington house and it was a really clean , comfortable apartment."

    When we arrived the owner was friendly but then left us to do our own thing , which made for a very peaceful stay. At first arrival the owners had baked us some cakes and left some milk in the fridge so we could have a drink of coffee straight away. However just a few minutes walk away there is a convinence store for anything you might need or drive 10 minutes into the town for Iceland and restaurants and pubs. The apartment is very well aquipted with towels , ironing board , hair dryer , oven , toaster. The beds were very comfortable and the views were beautiful. Our young children loved the house and we spent a few days going on walks over the hills and around the shops. A great break , thank you!

Well placed on the Malvern Hills with a walk to the top from the garden to spectacular panoramic views. We had everything we needed and throughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Haslington Hall is a great place."

    It’s steeped in history. The Kitchen is well supplied And was a nice space to eat in. The bed was comfy and bedroom huge. The whole apartment has fantastic views. The bathroom is nice. The whole place has a relaxed atmosphere. The outside space with chairs and table are nice but down quite a lot of steps from the apartment. It wasn’t a space you could just pop out and use easily say for eating. You can however use the owners garden to walk about or put chairs in if you want. Although The garden was in need of seasonal attention, it’s lovely and very big, well established with a great array of plants you can lose yourself in. There is a path from the garden up into the woods which lead directly up onto the Malvern Hills. This was just fantastic. I would just trim back the plants and clear the steps a bit In the garden just to make it a little easier. (Part of its rambling charm) Although the house is a couple of miles outside Malvern town it’s so easy to get too. There is a well stocked convenience store a few minutes walk away. Overall a great place to stay.

  • "Nice, roomy, comfortable accommodation with wonderful views across the Three Counties Showground and Malvern Hills."

    The `price' of the view, of course, is that you are up high, so be prepared to negotiate a steep, sharp-bended and bumpy drive before climbing 47 steps up to the property. We adapted quickly and were soon clambering up and down like mountain goats, but this is really not a property for people with mobility or respiratory problems (or - with a very steep, hairpin bend to negotiate - for nervous drivers!) The owners live on-site and provided basics like milk, tea and coffee, as well as a couple of cupcakes and a lovely bowl of freshly cut hydrangea flowers, which was a nice touch. Other than that, they are `hands-off' and seemed reluctant to provide more than basic information in a `file', so don't expect much in the way of a `meet and greet' or any recommendations for dinner on the first night. There is a very effective, fast-heating oven and a good quality washer/dryer which did (eventually) get the towels bone dry, but this was quite complex to operate, so be prepared to spend a fair bit of time combing through the manufacturer's instructions. A simple steer from the owners on the best wash / dry cycle to select would have been a great help. Overall, though, we very much enjoyed our stay in Malvern, which is a beautiful part of the country with some lovely places - like Hereford and Tewkesbury - within easy driving distance. If you're seeking a spacious property with a pretty, tiered garden and magnificent views, Haslington House fits the bill. (And, if you DO like to book ahead for dinner on your first night, we'd recommend The Nag's Head, an excellent gastro-pub in Great Malvern).

    The view from this quirky flat is amazing. The house and garden is well maintained. It’s a 50 meters away from Edward Elgar’s old house. The room is spacious. Like other people who stayed there before us, we enjoyed a cup of tea and muffin on arrival. Nice little touch to show the hospitality from the owner. Malvern is a nice little town to wonder and relax. The gas lamps that inspired C S Lewis can still be seen in Malvern college and on the main road. From the house you can access the hill directly and it’s only 30 -45 mins walk to the Worcester Beacon. Ledbury only a short 15 mins drive from the house, where no homogenous shops are seen and sweet old grade I listed buildings take you back in time to meet Elizabeth Browning and John Masefield. Eastnor castle is a few minutes down the road and is sure to impress the little ones if they like fairy tales. Milk shakes and home made scones at kettle sings, Morgan factory tour... the list just goes one. We had a wonderful time to unwind and soak up the culture. Thank you for sharing the house.

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.
