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).

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 centre of Hanley Swan is at the cross roads, with its village shop and post office, the public house, and the duck pond
