Enjoy a Country Cottage Holiday in the Malvern Hills
Malvern Hills holiday cottages are surrounded by some of England's most beautiful landscapes. This unspoiled range of hills encompasses parts of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. The hills run from north to south for eight miles, between Malvern and the village of Colwall, and are a paradise for horse-riding, water-sports, climbing and wildlife-watching. The Malvern Hills are famous for their scenic walks and spectacular views of the English countryside. From the highest summit, you can make out the Severn Valley, Welsh Mountains, Cotswolds, Bristol Channel and cathedrals of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford. The routes to Wynds Point, Swinyard Point, Worcestershire Beacon and North Hill all offer breathtaking views across as many as 11 counties.
Nestling under the Malvern Hills in West Malvern, The Coach House is a perfect romantic retreat for couples (with or without a young family). This quaint rural Worcestershire holiday cottage has an indoor heated pool and gym, and panoramic countryside views from the garden.
The stunning Malvern Hills encircle Rickyard Cottage and provide scenic views and famous walking trails for guests at this rural cottage in Castle Morton. The light and airy pet-free property contains two bedrooms, an open fire and a sun-drenched conservatory with rural views across Worcestershire.
Beesoni Lodge is a delightfully-converted barn which exudes charm and treats groups to a four-bedroom property with contemporary fittings. The rural cottage lies at the foot of the Malvern Hills in Hill End and is ideal for pets, wildlife enthusiasts and those wishing to explore Worcestershire.
The Malvern Hills are known for their spring water, which was taken as a cure for various ailments from the area's holy wells, and later, in the Victorian spa town of Malvern. Whether you want to hike through woods, fields and heaths, explore the area's rich history or visit thriving market towns and farming villages, there's no shortage of things to do on self-catering holidays in the Malvern Hills. The area is scattered with welcoming communities, with farmers' markets, cosy pubs and restaurants serving delicious food, prepared with the freshest ingredients from the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
From your Malvern Hills holiday cottage, make a day trip to the spa town of Malvern, nestled on the eastern flanks of North Hill and the Worcester Beacon. Wander through the historic town centre, known as Great Malvern, which became a magnet for holidaymakers in the 19th century, thanks to the supposed healing properties of the spring water. Make your way through the maze of narrow streets, lit by gas lamps at night and packed with striking Georgian and Victorian architecture. In the town centre, you will find holy wells, galleries, antique shops, bookshops and many of the region's best restaurants.
