An area of natural beauty with the wonderful backdrop of the Malvern Hills that can be explored and enjoyed all year. You can even bring your own water carriers and collect the clear fresh water from the numerous Springs around the Hills. Sir Edward Elgar loved the Malvern Hills too and he found great inspiration to compose some of his best music here.
Malvern is home to the magnificent Morgan Motor Car and they offer a great Factory tour. There are various places from where you could hire and experience the Morgan Motor Car for yourselves and even drive the scenic 35 mile ELGAR Route which takes you around Malvern and Worcester.
Worcester is a beautiful cathedral city adjacent to the River Severn. The Timber framed Tudor House Museum and The Commandery both offer an historic insight into the area. In addition to walking and driving, the fabulous Severn Valley Railway gives opportunity for a step back in time to experience the golden age of steam travel.
National Trust Property - Croome Court- was one of the first commissions of Capability Brown and is great parkland to enjoy
Worcestershire has a surprising amount of lovely smaller towns and villages to explore and you will never be far from the opportunity to try great local fare - be it local cider, apple or pear juice, or Worcester Sauce! from the abundance of great Farm Shops.
