The Malvern Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and made famous in the 1800's for Hydropathy - The Water Cure. When the great Victorian composer, Sir Edward Elgar, was looking for inspiration for his music, it is said that he would come to the Malvern Hills. Whilst staying in this beautiful and ideally situated apartment in Burford House, you can take a short walk up onto the hills so that you too can experience the same inspirational views across Worcestershire and its neighbouring counties. Following the Victorian donkey paths up onto the hills towards The Worcestershire Beacon (the highest point of the hills), you'll pass St. Ann's Well in about 20 minutes (perhaps stopping to sample some Malvern Water or enjoy coffee and cake) before reaching the 8 mile ridge that connects the many trails (about 100 miles) over/through the hills whilst marvelling at the stunning views and scenery. Keen cyclists may enjoy mountain or road biking with many cycle and bridal paths suitable for all abilities. There are also many attractions for visitors in the town. There are a variety of pubs and restaurants all within walking distance, as well as the state of the art Theatre complex which attracts pre and post-London productions, in addition there is a cinema within the complex. Malvern is home to the famous Three Counties Show Ground which has many events throughout the year the main shows being the Spring and Autumn Gardening shows and the Royal Agricultural show. The last wholly made British car factory is in Malvern and a tour round the Morgan car factory and visitor centre with museum (where the cars are still hand made) can be arranged for a very small fee or hire a Morgan car for the day and take a picnic into the hills. The impressive Great Malvern Priory Church sits in the centre of town and parts of the original Norman church can still be seen and date back to 1085. The Priory as we see it today was largely completed by 1500 and contains some of the finest medieval stained glass in the country. In the Priory Church yard some of the original gas lamps can be seen which are said to possibly be the inspiration for the lamp in the forest of C S Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Other famous visitors of Malvern include Charles Darwin, C.S. Lewis, Charles Dickenson, Florence Nightingale, Peter Roget, George Bernard Shaw and Sir Edward Elgar. Great Malvern Railway Station (built in 1861 and preserved as the most ornate, small station in the country) is just a short walk away and provides good links to Worcester, Ledbury, Hereford, The Cotswolds, Birmingham and London Paddington. There are also good bus links around the Malvern Hills including weekends and Bank Holidays.
