Malvern offers picturesque setting

Malvern offers picturesque setting

People looking to settle in a stunning part of the UK should consider the town of Malvern.

Originally a spa village, Malvern is close to the Welsh border but is also well located for those planning to commute to Birmingham via the nearby M5.

In addition to the road links, Malvern also has a local station offering regular connections to London, Birmingham and Worcester - perfect for commuters or those occasional trips to the big city.

The town's therapeutic qualities were thought to come from its springs. Both the Georgians and the Victorians travelled to Malvern to improve their health and the local architecture has been very much influenced by their presence over the years.

History fans should consider checking out some of the more stunning Victorian buildings, such as St Ann's Well, Malvern Priory and the Abbey Gateway.

Shopping is also an interesting experience in Malvern because of its hillside setting so there is a real mix of small and unusual retailers. There are a large number of bookshops selling both used and new titles. Antique fans will also be tempted by the local dealer shops and the occasional auctions held in the town.

There is also a vibrant art scene in Malvern and many of the shops and galleries regular showcase work from local artists and craftspeople.

Despite its strong history, Malvern is also at the cutting edge of technology and local residents and businesses are able to benefit from super-fast broadband services - vital for any family relocating to the area.

In terms of education, households with children will be pleased to discover the town has more than ten primary schools, as well as three high schools and a number of independent schools – so there should be something to please most parents.

Crucially, property for sale in Malvern offers real value given the stunning countryside that surrounds the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801694018-ADNFCR
