Finally the sun has arrived great news, it really does bring out the beauty of the Malvern Hills with views from the top way over the Cotswolds in one direction and Herefordshire and the Welsh borders in the other. The hills are
currently very easy to walk because of the dry weather so come and enjoy.
We planted a lot of new shrubs and trees last year ready for this season, but a lot of them were eaten buy the sheep that roam the streets around here but the ones that remain
are doing very well and will be huge in a few years time. This is what makes this area unique. You will encounter the sheep during your stay, perhaps up our track and in our yard. The free roaming cows are consentrated on Castlemorton common these days
and will very often bring you to a halt on the Castlemorton straight. It is possible though, to have the cows visit our site so keep the gate shut or they will eat your awning.
There are many local events planned this year, especially in Upton-Upon-Severn.
This sleepy little riverside village with its many pubs and restuarants focussed around the river crossing is becoming widely known for its free or definately value for money music festivals.
The Blues festival is probably the most popular as it is
free, and its not just Blues music either lots of different mainly up tempo styles can be heard eminating from the cosy venues, most often local pubs or the small marques place strategically along the lanes. Rock and roll, Jazz, Electro Swing and loads more.
Performances normally start on Friday night to Sunday evening.
Dont forget the other events, Jazz Festival, Folk Festival and the Sunshine (mainly retro 80s and 70s acts) Festival to name just a few. Showaddywaddy and Suzi Quattro were there last year.
Eastnor Castle and The Malvern Showground have many specialist events too, all well worth a visit especially the international firework competition in September.
However, if you just want to chill the Farmers Arms, our local, 3 minute walk down the
lane, offers excellent food and drink and is a wonderful place on a hot summer night. We have had complaints though, apparently its so friendly, a quick half has turned into an all night event on a few occasions as the locals are easy to talk to and welcome
If you walk 3 minutes along the lane in the other direction you will end up on Coombe Green common. From here you can walk off road for many miles, enough distance and elevation changes to satisfy even the most avid walker.
this is enough to wet your appetite but if you are not convinced read our client reviews , you wont be disappointed.
We look forward to hosting you and making your break as pleasant as possible.
Thanks for reading, see you soon.
