The Malvern Hills are a famous beauty spot, with scenic views over both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The name Malvern is of Brythonic origin and probably derives from moel fryn meaning ‘bald hill’. The Hills run north/south for about 13 km (eight miles), in between Great Malvern and the village of Colwall, and overlooks the River Severn valley to the east, with the Cotswolds beyond. The highest point of the hills is the Worcestershire Beacon at 425 metres (1395 ft) above sea level though they give the impression of looking considerably higher. The summits of the hills were excellent defensive points. The Herefordshire Beacon is known as the British Camp, as the remains of a large Iron Age hill fort can be found at the summit.
The Abbey Hotel, located in the centre of Great Malvern, is the perfect location to rest up after a long day of walking. The Hotel is currently promoting a Walking Break package for either one or two nights; which includes evening dinner, accommodation, full English breakfast as well as a packed lunch, free map and free upgrade upon arrival, subject to availability.
