About the Area:
The Malverns (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) are sometimes referred to as the Seven Sisters, namely Great Malvern, Little Malvern, Malvern Link, North Malvern, West Malvern, The Wyche (or South Malvern, an iron Age salt route), and Malvern Wells, and are nestled along the roads that run around the Malvern Hills which are some 600 million years old. The area has a rich heritage and culture, fantastic landscapes, and is famous for the spring waters that flow from the Hills.
The Malvern Hills and Commons (walking distance)
No visit to the area would be complete without a walk on the spectacular Malvern Hills. Breathtaking views are only a stroll away from Copper Beech House or from any of the many conveniently located car parks dotted around the Hills. The Hills are not only home to beautiful views, but provide a home for some of Britain’s rarest animals, birds, insects and wild plants. Keep an eye out for skylarks, High Brown Fritillary butterflies, dormice, Great Crested Newts and, on those summer evening walks, Barbastelle and Lesser Horseshoe bats.
Malvern Priory and Park (walking distance)
in 2010 Malvern Priory celebrated its 925th anniversary. With stained glass windows second only to York Minster and still retaining its Medieval floor tiles it is well worth a visit. On Sunday afternoons from late May to early September the Victorian bandstand in Priory Park hosts various brass and other bands (Bands in the Park). There is plenty of space to take a picnic, relax, and enjoy the atmosphere. The park is open throughout the year and can be used as a short cut to the Theatre complex. More information about the Priory is available at http://www.greatmalvernpriory.org.uk and the Park at http://www.malvernhills.gov.uk.
Upton upon Severn (6.5 miles)
The life-blood of Upton for many centuries has been the River Severn. it was the main highway for commerce, employment and communication. All of this is reflected in today’s vibrant town. The focus on the river is now for pleasure, with a large marina and boats visiting Upton for the various festivals held each year. As with Ledbury below, Upton has a magnificent riverside walk. Follow the path past the church tower to the water meadow where swifts, swallows and the occasional skylark can be seen and heard. Buzzards and hawks glide down from the Malvern Hills and swans float down the river – sample a little of the beauty and magic of Upton.
Ledbury (9.2 miles)
Nestling a few miles off the west Malvern Hills this medieval black and white market town is a thriving and fascinating place to visit. Ledbury is renowned locally for its beautiful flower displays and was the national winner of the 2003 Britain in Bloom competition. We recommend a relaxing stroll through the town and along the riverside walk.
