Good Hotel Guide Review
High in the Malvern hills, this refurbished Georgian dower house has ‘stunning’ views over the Severn valley. A years-long makeover, completed in 2020, has resulted in contemporary public spaces in shades of grey, and a collection of smart, up-to-date bedrooms that range from snug to spacious. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the wood-floored restaurant (popular with groups) afford views of a rural panorama that stretches to the Cotswolds – a fine backdrop for the modern dishes, including vegan and gluten-free options, at lunch and dinner. Casual meals and drinks may also be taken alfresco on the new terrace, all the better to soak in the fresh air. Close by: country lanes, historic market towns, the Elgar route.
