Nestled in an elevated position on the slopes of the beautiful Malvern Hills, Holywell Cottage is Grade II listed lying within the curtilage of the neighbouring historic Holy Well spring, the original source of Malvern Water, believed to be the site of the oldest bottling plant in the world. Holywell Cottage, built circa 1850, was originally the workers cottages for the Holy Well, and is now one Cottage offering Holiday accommodation with 2 bedrooms sleeping 4.
Shared parking is available on the road and a path leads to the Cottage where there is a small front garden and a courtyard area to the rear with outdoor seating and plenty of room for barbecues and relaxing surrounded by woodland and the backdrop of the hills.
The front garden gate leads directly onto one of the many bridle paths on the hills making it an ideal location for keen walkers and cyclists. It is situated 2 miles from the centre of Great Malvern with its many independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and the thriving Malvern Theatres. The Three Counties Showground is just over a mile away with its many events throughout the year such as gardening shows, agricultural shows, motor home shows, flea and collectors fairs. The famous Morgan Motor Company is also located in Malvern where you can arrange a tour of the factory (week days only) or even hire a Morgan for the day! There are also 3 pubs offering good food and beer selections within walking distance either along the bridle path or over the top/ along the ridge of the hills if feeling energetic, or a short drive away.
The cottage is ideally suited to families and small groups of friends, walkers and cyclists wishing to have easy access to this stunning part of the countryside and enjoying a very special part of Malverns history. Being situated on the border between Herefordshire and Worcestershire it is also a perfect location for exploring the two counties.
Please note that the footpath leading from the parking to the cottage is fairly steep and there are steps up to the front door so it may not be suitable for those with restricted mobility. We do not accept pets.
