Elegant Victorian townhouse. High ceilings and large sash windows provide natural light and great views across the Severn Valley.
Situated on a residential street in North Malvern with wooded hillside opposite. There is direct access to the Malvern Hills and it is only a 15-minute walk into town, which makes this an ideal base for walking holidays, the theatres and long weekends.
There are four floors, so although ideal for groups and families, toddlers need to be supervised. Stair gates are available.
The house is great for all seasons as it is cosy in the winter and you can eat outside in the summer.
Sympathetically updated with central heating throughout and underfloor heating on the ground floor.
There are five bedrooms: one king size, three doubles (one of which can be turned into a twin room) and one single. There is a double sofa bed in one of the sitting rooms. A travel cot is also available.
The dining room table can seat 11 for mealtimes and has French windows onto the terrace and garden, where there is a gas-fired barbeque grill.
The kitchen has a double oven, large gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is a large selection of pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, glassware, etc.
A utility room in the cellar (in the basement where the kitchen and dining room are) houses a 10kg washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing equipment and a third toilet. There is a washing line in the garden.
You will have access to the whole house and garden.
The house key is in a lock box should we not be around to welcome you. We will leave you to enjoy your stay, but someone is always available by telephone (number in Welcome Guide) to help with any questions.
About the neighbourhood:
Our home is located in Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. From the house you have direct access to the Malvern Hills, which is an AONB, and offers a range of walks, from short and easy to longer ones (the Worcestershire Way, for example).
Walk into town in 15 minutes and visit Malvern Theatres, as well as many restaurants and cafes. Pubs are plentiful and can make good ends to walks on the hills!
Drive or take the train (from Malvern Link or Great Malvern stations) to local attractions and towns. Ledbury, a historic market town which is on the Guardian's list of best European shopping towns, is a 25-minute drive away. Hereford and Worcester also offer cultural and retail experiences. Watch Premiership rugby at Worcester and Gloucester rugby grounds, and first-class cricket at Worcestershire County Cricket Club. The Morgan Motor Company factory is in Malvern Link and offers factory tours (Mon to Fri only). Eastnor Castle and Eastnor Deer Park are between the hills and Ledbury. There you can book a Land Rover experience and dirt biking is available.
Other attractions include Weston's Cider and Royal Worcester. Annual arts festivals include the Worcestershire Open Studios in August, and h.Art in September. Local pottery café GlazyDayz in Ledbury is a long-standing attraction, particularly for children. Stroll through town and along the hill roads and catch sight of the gas lamps that inspired C.S. Lewis's Narnia. Malvern is also at the centre of the Elgar Route.
Malvern has two train stations (Malvern Link and Great Malvern), which are on a direct line to both Birmingham and London. Malvern is easily reached from the M5 - junction 7 (Worcester South) or junction 8 (South Wales, Ross-on-Wye, M50).
Street parking is available right outside the house. It is unrestricted.
We welcome a well-behaved dog but ask you to keep it downstairs as we have cream carpets on the upper floors! Any dirt or damage caused by pets that results in extra cleaning or breakages will incur guests losing some or all of the deposit.
