"Great location, lovely apartment"
The apartment was very clean and tidy with the owner supplying all the essentials needed for a short stay or long stay. The owner is also very helpful and although I didn't need anything, is easily contactable if there are any problems.
If you are into walking, the Malvern hills are very close by and the surrounding area is lovely also. The town of Great Malvern is only 5 minutes by car and the train station has easy access to Worcester, Brimingham, Hereford etc. However, the area is very hilly, especially the town so not easily accessible for people with low mobility. It does help you get fit though!
There are not many shops nearby but there is a Spar a few minutes away which sells all the essentials. There is also a big Morrisons at a retail park a few miles away, with a Boots, M & S, Matalan, McDonalds, etc but a car is needed really.
The apartment had all the mod cons and was in very good condition, as described in the advert. I would definitely stay again. There was a problem with poor internet/phone reception (I was on 02) but this is expected given the location in the hills!
