Found nestling at the foot of the wooded slopes of the Malvern Hills, with far-reaching views across the Severn Valley to the Cotswolds, Little Malvern Court provides the perfect blend of history and horticulture.

The Prior’s Hall, with its oak framed roof, was part of a former Benedictine Monastery, dating back to the 1400s. After the dissolution of the monasteries, Little Malvern Court became a family home and still today remains in the same family by descent. The Hall hosts a collection of religious vestments and relics, embroideries and paintings.

Ten acres of former monastic grounds surround the Court with a Rose Garden, terraces and garden rooms, reaching down to the lakes, which had been ancient fish ponds excavated by the monks. Spring bulbs, blossom, old fashioned roses and the topiary yew hedge bordering the garden are highlights.
