Malverns

The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature; the eight mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain and their craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. A walk in the Hills is strenuous enough that Mallory walked here in preparation for his ascent of Everest. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or relax whilst quietly rambling along the wooded slopes.

The Malvern Hills are a range of hills in the English counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and a small area of northern Gloucestershire, dominating the surrounding countryside and the towns and villages of the district of Malvern. The highest summit of the hills affords a panorama of the Severn valley with the hills of Herefordshire and the Welsh mountains, parts of thirteen counties, the Bristol Channel, and the cathedrals of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.

They are known for their spring water – initially made famous by the region's many holy wells, and later through the development of the 19th century spa town of Great Malvern, a process which culminated in the production of the modern bottled drinking water.[1]

What Others Said...

Kay Gaitskell Slovenia June 2014 Hi Alan & Chris, The knee is getting better each day - I really would like to express my grateful thanks to you & Chris for all your help in arranging for me to go to A&E with Chris as my minder, who stayed with me throughout and all the help i received on my return to the hotel. this is what makes Secret Hills walking holidays the absolute best, nothing is too much trouble, the personal touch is always evident. Although my plans to scale high peaks were dashed, plan B was put into operation by Alan, and i had a most enjoyable weeks holiday, doing slightly different things with the strollers and explorers. Our group was full of interesting people and many friendships were formed. I shall be back in lovely Slovenia next year to tackle the peaks!  and if like me you have not travelled abroad on your own before, go with Secret Hills - you will not regret it!! Kay Gaitskell
