Breathtaking views of the Cotswolds and the Severn Valley from a cosy hotel high in the Malvern Hills - includes optional dinner and more

Steeped in history and surrounded by beauty, The Cottage in the Wood is an idyllic country house and cottage dating back to the 1700s. Located high up in the Malvern Hills, from which point it enjoys 30-mile views of the Severn Valley and the Cotswolds - voted by a national newspaper as “The Best View in England”.

Picturesque and wonderfully unique, this Georgian stately home boasts a quintessentially English style complete with great views, individually-decorated rooms. Staying in the Coach House or the traditional English cottage, you'll be able to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere like no other. Furthering the calming ambience, the two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant offers locally-sourced cuisine, an extensive wine list and beautiful views from large windows.

Inspiring the likes of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis and the composer, Edward Elgar, the beautiful Malvern Hills landscape is steeped in history, literature and music. Spend your time here taking in the stunning scenery on a walk, touring one of the nearby vineyards or heading out on a cultural excursion and you may be penning your own masterpiece in no time.
