A Malvern stone-built residence from the mid-Victorian era, with views over the Severn
Valley extending 30 miles towards the Cotswolds, Cheltenham and Gloucestershire.
The house features attractive cornices, fireplaces, staircase, ocre floor tiles in
the porch and beautiful arches.
It started as a Victorian bakery; original ovens still in the cellars! It was a chemist,
a clothes shop, and for 24 years until 2002 was a Michelin-starred restaurant, "Croque-en-Bouche"
The house has half an acre of garden, of which a third is vegetables and herbs. Guests
are welcome to wander.
Two fine double/twin guest rooms with ensuite facilities. From £65 per room per
night (from £45 single occupancy).
Sitting on the side of the Malvern Hills, there are magnificent walking paths, starting
only a couple of minutes from the door. You can take in the panoramic views to the
Black Mountains or across the Severn Valley. What a vista! You can see why Elgar
was so inspired.
