Malvern Wells is an unobtrusive semi-rural community situated along the A449 some two miles south of Great Malvern where an excellent range of cultural amenities, educational establishments and shopping / commercial facilities are available. The Wells is quite spread out but offers easy access to good Primary Schools, Places of Worship, and has both a Garage / Service Station and excellent Local Store for day-to-day requirements. The Wells Club and Village Hall combine to offer a social facility and of course the renowned Three Counties showground is but one mile distant via Hanley Road: Also close by is the Worcestershire Golf Club, again via Hanley Road. From Great Malvern the A449 continues through The Wells up to British Camp and the Malvern Hills Hotel, then on to the historic market town of Ledbury. Upton-on-Severn is but four miles distant via the village of Hanley Swan and is renowned for its’ Jazz, Water and Folk Music Festivals. Worcester City is ten miles distant approximately.
That the area is one of outstanding natural beauty is quite without question.
The property is perhaps best approached via the A449 (Wells Road) from Malvern Wells towards Great Malvern.
