On this page you will find information on how to tailor your holiday to your needs in terms of accommodation, activities, attractions, transport, and facilities. We want everyone to be able to enjoy an easy, stress-free holiday in The Malverns.
The Malverns offers plenty of options for accessible accommodation from hotels with a view, to cosy ground floor garden flats. For example, The Cottage in The Wood hotel has a fully accessible fine dining restaurant and dedicated fully accessible bedroom including designated parking spot and accessible shower. At No.44 Cowleigh Road enjoy a bright and spacious garden flat which is wheelchair friendly, or book into Holly Lodge – an accessible wooden cabin.
Although we are famous for our hills, there are plenty of walks across The Malverns that are flatter, shorter or without stiles.
Or speed to the top of the Malvern Hills by booking one of the tramper mobility scooters from Malvern Hills GeoCentre.
The Malverns is full of history and heritage, and many of our attractions have taken accessibility into account. Croome National Trust has lots of accessible facilities such as designated parking, accessible route maps and Trampers available to hire for free. Eastnor Castle has a lift for wheelchair users to access the ground floor state rooms and an accessible café. Elgar’s Birthplace The First National Trust has wheelchair access to the visitor centre and garden and the house has seating available.
Malvern Theatres offers half price tickets to carers, step free seating, and wheelchair spaces in prime locations. They also offer infrared hearing assistance and accessible performances such as captioned, signed, audio described or relaxed. Please note that access to Malvern Theatres may be limited by current renovations. The Coach House Theatre is fully accessible with close and easy parking and The Regal Tenbury Wells offers spaces for wheelchair users and free entry to support companions – please contact The Regal in advance to discuss your visit.fIND oUT mORE
