The Worcestershire region
Malvern is in the heart of England and close to the Welsh borders. It is a good base for both walking and fishing, as well as visits to Ledbury (8 miles), Upton-Upon-Severn (11 miles), Clifton-on-Teme (20 miles), Pershore (16 miles), Tewkesbury (24 miles), Cheltenham (32 miles), as well as the cities of Worcester (10 miles), Hereford (21 miles) and Gloucester (24 miles0.
Close by is Eastnor Castle (8 miles), Great Witley Court (20 miles) and Croome Court (16 miles), each having extensive grounds open to the public.
Wayfarers Cottage is in the hillside village of West Malvern, the highest of The Malverns, which nestle around the Malvern Hills and which also include Great Malvern, Malvern Link, Malvern Wells and Little Malvern.
Malvern is famous for the Malvern Hills and is the home of the Morgan Car Company, the No.1 British-owned car manufacturer. Close by, the Malvern Showground is home to the Three Counties Show and the Spring and Autumn Garden Shows.
The Brewer’s Arms is in West Malvern and has spectacular views, along with good pub food and real ale. It hosts Morris Dancing and other occasional events.
Parts of West Malvern are still lit by gas lamps, including the front and back of Wayfarers Cottage.
There are a number of springs which feature in the annual Well Dressing, but you can drink the Malvern water from the springs at any time of year.

"Fabulous home from home with awe-inspiring views from the immaculate gardengarden"
If you want a true home from home experience, with genuinely friendly but unobtrusive owners, set admist glorious scenery and walks from the door this is the place to stay in the Malverns. The village hosts a small shop with cafe attached for basics like milk and bread. If you want a break from cooking a stroll to the bottom of the garden and a left turn out the gate, even with an 89 year old mother on your arm, leads to a quiet old fashioned pub with good food. The Malvern theatre is a must - 5 minute drive down into Great Malvern. We hope to return sooner rather than later.

"Chosen for location"
A lovely cottage which we chose for its location near Malvern. We enjoyed the space for a bedroom each and spacious living areas. The views from the garden and the sunsets lived up to our expectations. We found it a lovely base to tour Worcestershire and Herefordshire and may return sometime because we could not fit in all we wished to do.

"Superb! Exceeded our expectations."
Lovely, well-equipped house. Large garden, with different areas and stunning views. Very friendly, helpful owners. Pub outside the back gate serves good pub food and real ales.
So pleased you had a good time and enjoyed our local pub. We often eat there too. We've been working hard on the garden and doing our best to make it comfortable and interesting.

Wayfarers Cottage at the foot of the Malverns was absolutely fabulous and just perfect for our family holiday for a very special occasion - our mother's 90th birthday! All the family came together from around the globe, and we were all able to stay in the house together. It was very special and the house made it a perfect holiday. It was well appointed with plenty of bathrooms, a big dining room with plenty of chairs, good kitchen with all you could possibly need and a lovely garden. Rooms were well decorated, comfortable, tidy, clean and beautifully furnished. I loved all the books! The Owners were so kind and helpful. I can't recommend it highly enough for a holiday in a perfect location. We walked out of the house each day and up onto the Malverns, so you can even leave the car behind!
Many thanks, we think Wayfarers is the perfect place for a birthday celebration involving two or three generations.

An excellent place - have stayed here twice and would do so again. Had 4 generations of family there and all were safe and well-catered for.
Wow, four generations. Brilliant! So glad everything went so well.

"Comfortably sleeps 7 people plus room for babies"
We stayed from Thursday to Monday' Royal Wedding' Weekend in April. We were greeted on arrival by the owners who live there when the property is not let and so are local if there are any pro… More
Wayfarers sleeps 9 adults comfortably; it has been said there are plenty of places to get peace and quiet. We have always had two measuring jugs & weighing scales with two useful weighing bowls!
Eating out is a very personal encounter, but there are plenty of places to suit all tastes and pockets in Malvern and the surrounding area. We only recommend the ones we have tried and liked! Amusing children should not be difficult in April, depending on age, tastes and the weather. There is a swimming pool, with slide and baby pool, plus with gym & sauna. We are lucky to have a cinema and theatre complex and even an ice rink with Laser Quest. The Smallest Theatre in the World is unique and for older children, there is the Malvern Museum in the Abbey Gateway. There are many more attractions of all kinds in the area, including castles, farms, a falconry, trips on the River Severn and steam railways. We have innumerable pamphlets and suggestion lists.!
We have a large number of supermarkets, including Iceland, Morrisons, Lidell, the Co op and even a Tesco Express as well as Waitrose and Marks and Spencers.
