THINGS TO DO

 
Walking

Whether you're looking for a day's hiking or a gentle evening stroll there is something for everyone. You can connect to the 31 mile Worcester  Way which is a 5 minute walk from the Studio just across the valley or choose from a range of local footpath woodland walks or, within a few minute's drive,  choose a walk on the Malvern Hills with their magnificent forty mile views. We can suggest parking places that are free of charge and that will get you up into the hills on quieter paths than the usual well-trodden routes.

Just down the road we have the tranquil Knapp & Papermill nature reserve where you might spot kingfishers and otters and the numerous local footpaths that criss-cross the area are easily accessible from your front door. We have written down a range of walks right from The Studio that offer something special, whatever the season. 

As the 2021 season progresses some local pubs will be offering walks from their gardens around the local area. Some are guided and some you do independently. Packed lunches will be available or bar meals will be served on your return. Ask us for more details when you arrive and we can check current availability for you.
