Combermere b and b room
B&B | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
An elegant spacious double bedroom in a Victorian ground floor flat with garden on the most prestigious street in Malvern, known as the Mayfair of Malvern. A double bed plus sofa bed in the same room makes it suitable as a family room or it can be a romantic getaway for a couple who like walking, cycling, theatre and historic sites. There is a separate guest toilet and wash basin.The Malvern hills are visible from the bedroom window.
Bathing facilities - shower and bath - are in another large bathroom and shared with the owner, who is a single lady with a friendly dog. Breakfast is served in a charming dining room overlooking the gardens.
Shops include several 24/7's a few minutes away and up the road is a Waitrose, built to complement the landscape of the Malvern Hills. The quaint Victorian train station (2.5 hours to London, 2 hours to Bristol, 1 hour to Birmingham), is 5 minutes up Avenue Road. The bus to Worcester, the nearest city runs on Avenue Road.
The Morgan pub, Indian, and Thai restaurants, charming tea rooms are all walking distance. For fine dining there is Cottage in the Wood, Margaret Thatcher's escape place. The Malvern Theatre & Cinema, as well as the Splash with gym and swimming pool are all about a 7 minute walk.
For a combination of culture and outdoor pursuits, this location can't be beat. After all, the home of Elgar and now Nigel Kennedy has to be special. And when you taste the water coming out of the ground from 37 springs, then you know why Malvern is a healing place. Fit for the Queen

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Malvern Hills are a range of hills in the English counties of Worcestershire and Herefordshire. The highest summit of the hills affords a panorama of the Severn valley with the hills of Herefordshire and the Welsh mountains, parts of thirteen counties, the Bristol Channel, and the cathedrals of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.
They are known for their spring water - initially made famous by the region's many holy wells, and later through the development of the 19th century spa town of Great Malvern, a process which culminated in the production of the modern bottled drinking water.
The Malvern Hills have been designated as a Biological and Geological Site of Special Scientific Interest by Natural England and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The natural beauty of the hills, ideal for walking, and cycling, combined with the Victorian elegance of Malvern town flowing gracefully down the hillside, make it a harmonious combination of nature and culture.
The Malvern Hills are part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with scenic views over both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The Hills run north/south for about 13 km (8 miles), in between Great Malvern and the village of Colwall, and overlook the River Severn valley to the east, with the Cotswolds beyond. The highest point of the hills is the Worcestershire Beacon at 425 metres (1,394 ft) above sea level
An often quoted, if rather obscure, geographical fact notes that: if one stands on top of the Malvern Hills and faces a few degrees North of due East, the next point of equivalent altitude is on the Ural Mountains some 3,800km (2,400 miles) away.
One of the passes over the hills is the site of the British Camp, an Iron Age hill fort thought to date back before the Common Era, extended subsequently by a medieval castle. The extensive earthworks remain clearly visible today and determine the shape of the hill.

"Like Home in Malvern"
