The Old Croque Guest House

This Malvern stone-built residence from the mid-Victorian era, has fantastic views over the Severn Valley extending 30 miles towards the Cotswolds, Cheltenham and Gloucestershire. The Old Croque is situated on the A449 in Malvern Wells, very accessible and easy to find. The house is close to Malvern Town Centre (approx. 2 miles - so handy for the theatre and nice eating houses) and within walking distance of the Three Counties Showground. Malvern has plenty of beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture to enjoy, and all sorts of shops and quaint tea rooms.

The house features attractive cornices, fireplaces, staircase, ocre floor tiles in the porch and beautiful arches. It started as a Victorian bakery and the original ovens are 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" (gastronomically famous). The house has half an acre of garden, of which a third is vegetables and herbs. Guests are welcome to wander. 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.
