Location & Description

Holly Cottage enjoys an elevated position in a quiet cul de sac located on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. Access to the hills themselves is literally on the doorstep with the Pixie Path leading up to the Wyche Cutting, or by another pathway at the end of Eaton Road. Malvern Common is also just a few minutes' walk away. Great Malvern is just under two miles away and offers a good range of amenities including many restaurants and cafes, a mixture of independent shops and high street names as well as Waitrose supermarket. There are banks, post office, the lovely Great Malvern Priory and the renowned theatre and cinema complex set in the attractive Winter Gardens. Recreational needs are well catered for with the Worcestershire Golf Club close by, the Malvern Splash Leisure Centre in Great Malvern and the Manor Park Sports Club in Malvern Link together with several membership gyms and clubs in the area. Educational needs are well served with the well regarded Wyche Primary School about five minutes walk and the area is served by several highly regarded schools at primary and secondary levels in both the private and public sector including Malvern College and Malvern St James Girls' School.

Junction 7 of the M5 motorway is just outside Worcester for northbound traffic or Junction 9 for southbound traffic being just north of Tewkesbury.

Holly Cottage is believed to have been built in 1850 and retains much period character and charm whilst having been tastefully refurbished to reflect the requirements of modern day living. It occupies a delightful elevated position on a quiet cul de sac with views across the Severn Valley to Bredon Hill and beyond.

The accommodation is well maintained and beautifully presented, benefitting from gas fired central heating.
