Sidney House stands opposite a main route up to the Malvern Hills which rise steeply from the Severn Valley. The hills are renowned as providing some of the greatest walks in the UK with beautiful scenery all the way up. We offer a map loan, picnic lunch and clothes drying service.
Malvern became famous in the last century as a spa town and its water is still bottled here at Holywell. The Priory Church dates from the 11th century and is famous for its wealth of 15th century glass and wall tiles. The British Camp, just south of Malvern, is a fine example of an ancient hill fort.
Local attractions include the Three Counties Show, the Three Choirs Festival held at Worcester, Hereford or Gloucester in September and the famous Malvern Festival associated with Shaw and Elgar whose birthplace is near Malvern.
Malvern is a convenient centre for touring the Cotswolds, Shakespeare’s Country, the Wye Valley and the Welsh Borderland.
