Malverns

The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature – with stunning views in all directions across the surrounding countryside.  Our solos guided walking holiday takes in the eight mile long Malverns ridge which contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain. 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.  However, there are so many paths to choose that it is equally possible to do relatively gentle walking in these hills. 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 WorcestershireHerefordshire 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]
