"Best for music fans
The Cottage in the Woods clings to the east flank of a forested ridge, its white façade peaking out from the dense trees. The hotel’s lofty position affords it excellent views over the Severn Vale and the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is Elgar country, with concerts galore at the Festival Theatre in Malvern and surrounding venues, while six miles east is the riverside Upton-upon-Severn, which hosts the annual Jazz, Folk and Blues Festival. A huddle of three buildings includes the Main House, with a bar and two-AA-rosette-awarded restaurant; the four-room Beech Cottage; and, 150 yards away, The Coach House with 19 more bedrooms."
"1919 is the name of the restaurant at the Cottage in the Woods. This was the year that a Georgian dower house, high on the side of the Malvern Hills, opened as a hotel and public tea room. Up until then, this small stately building standing on seven acres of woodland had been part of the massive 3,226 acre Blackmore Park Estate. Blackmore Park, before World War I stretched as far as the eye could see across the Severn Valley. In 1921 the main Victorian mansion in the park later burned down, but the view over its estate can still be enjoyed from the hotel’s terrace and dining room, all the way to the Cotswolds and Vale of Evesham.
Today guests at The Cottage in the Woods stay in the old dower house itself - which has seven bedrooms - or in the modern Coach House where there are 19 rooms with individual patios and balconies. There’s also Beech Cottage which was built as a woodman’s abode in the 1700s and was later a scrumpy house for making cider. Beech Cottage has just four rooms and is the actual cottage from which the hotel took its name in 1919.
The Cottage in the Woods has two AA Rosettes for its dining room and describes the menu at 1919 as offering the best from “Forest and Coast” so you will find plenty of local Hereford rib-eye steak and braised pig head as well as roast Cornish cod in a shellfish sauce and Zarzuela Spiced Spanish fish stew. Vegetarians are also well catered for: ask for the roast cauliflower with confit egg purée or the goat's curd mousse with salt baked heritage beetroot. Not surprisingly 1919 also offers its own Cottage Pie featuring black treacle braised oxtail and beef shin, celeriac crumb and truffle mash.
The hotel is popular with walkers come to enjoy the Malvern Hills and its menu sufficiently inviting for many to book in on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis."
