Tewkesbury Park Hotel - photo

The Cotswolds and Malvern Hills are a walkers' delight and only a short, hop, skip and a jump (not really walking but never mind) from, oh so comfy beds, scrumptious food, idyllic surroundings and the all important sauna and hot tub to ease those aching limbs. Staying with them is never a chore. Their local walking guide will give you ten of the best local walks, far too many for a short-break, but giving you plenty of reason to return.
