The Old Rectory itself nestles at the foot of the Malvern Hills in the village of Cradley. It is an area of natural beauty and is a conservation area. There couldn't be a more ideal base for those who wish to explore the many outstanding walks and places to visit in the surrounding area.


These include:

The Elgar Route

Spring Garden Show

Malvern Theatr

Worcestershire Way

Three Choirs Festival

Eastnor Castle

Three Counties Showground

The Severn Valley Railway & Bewdley



The Teme Valley is wonderful to drive around and visit some of the gardens and houses en route including Witley Court and Church which is Britains finest example of Baroque.


We are close to Worcester, Hereford, Stratford upon Avon and of course Cheltenham for a day out at the races or excellent shopping.


Great Malvern is beautiful Victorian spa town that has an abundance of natural beauty and history. Iron-age builders of The British Camp, and then, hundreds of years later, the founders of Malvern's two medieval priories enjoyed the waters that made Malvern a 19th century spa, with the elegance to become a place of culture, attracting people like Sir Edward Elgar and George Bernard Shaw.


Great Malvern town centre offers a fine choice of shops, restaurants and pubs. Close at hand is the Malvern Festival Theatre; a must for top quality theatre productions, concerts and cinema performances. The Malvern Splash Leisure centre offers swimming and other health club facilities; Manor Park for Tennis, Squash, Racquet Ball and Bowls and Worcestershire Golf Club is in Malvern Wells.
