Things to do in the local area

Walks in the Hills


The Netherley Estate is situated right in the foothills of the Malverns. The Worcestershire Beacon, the highest point in the Malvern Hills, is accessible by foot from your estate cottage and offers awe-inspiring views across Herefordshire and towards Wales. There are routes accessible to inexperienced walkers as well as more seasoned hikers.

The Three Counties Showground


The Three Counties Showground was established to promote agriculture, horticulture and food production in the counties of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.  In addition to organising three major events - Malvern Spring Gardening Show, Three Counties Show and Malvern Autumn Show - the Society hosts a national sheep show, arena concerts, dog shows, fairs and rallies. 

Malvern Theatre

Located in Great Malvern and in the shadow of the Malvern Hills, Malvern Theatres is a major centre for the arts in the West Midlands. The theatre is the home of the famous Malvern Festivals, founded by Bernard Shaw and Barry Jackson. Malvern Theatres boasts a diverse programme of drama, comedy, music and dance involving the biggest names and comprises three auditoria: the 800-seat Festival Theatre, the Forum Theatre and a 400-seat cinema.

Great Malvern Priory

Work on the the Priory began in 1085. Not long after the time of the Battle of Hastings a monastery was founded in what was then the Malvern Chase. The Priory was built on land which belonged to Westminster Abbey, under the control of the crown at that time. Malvern was in the diocese of Powick but the Priory was subservient to Westminster Abbey and so it had `Priory` status.
