Hanley Swan is a very desirable traditional English village in the lee of the Malvern Hills and close to Great Malvern (2 miles).
The village won the ‘Calor Herefordshire & Worcestershire Village of the Year’ competition in 2009 (the last year of the competition).
Hanley Swan is well situated. It is a country village but close to Malvern with its wide range of shopping, cultural and leisure activities, while the Cathedral City of Worcester, on the banks of the River Severn, and the cities of Gloucester and Cheltenham are all in easy reach). Great Malvern’s main line railway station is less than 10 minutes’ drive and there is easy access to the M5 and M50 motorways (c 10 miles away).
The surrounding countryside and area is one of the most beautiful in England, with the Malvern Hills in full view of the site.
The village has the usual range of facilities, including: -
Primary School (Good rating from Ofsted)
General Store/Post Office
Village Green and Duck Pond
Restaurant & Pub. (Rated 4.5 out of 5 on Trip Advisor)
The village is relatively affluent, and there is a consistent demand in Hanley Swan for housing, especially and this end of the market being larger, exclusive homes.
The centre of Hanley Swan is at the cross roads, with its village shop and post office, the public house, and the duck pond
Meadow View is located a short walk from the centre of the village along a footpath, separated from the road by a grass verge:
The development is set some 200 metres off the road, accessed by a private drive.
It name, Meadow View, comes from the fact that it faces to the South onto a large grass meadow, grazed at times by sheep, with the wonderful Malvern Hills in view to the west. The adjacent bungalow is called Cobwebs Folly.
It is a quiet, rural location in a tranquil setting, but in easy reach of all the comforts of modern life.
