Little Malvern Court – Gardens
Little Malvern, Nr. Malvern, Worcestershire, WR14 4JN
Prior's Hall, C. 1480, of former Benedictine Monastery. Library, Religious Vestments, Embroideries, Paintings. 10 acre garden - lakes, spring bulbs, blossom, old roses and shrubs.
Stepping outside, there are 10 acres to explore, along with the magnificent views to enjoy over the Severn Valley. Highlights change from season to season, the carpets of wild flowers and spring bulbs, flowering Magnolias and the collection of old-fashioned roses. You should also look out for the giant lime tree, sadly now damaged by storms over the past decade, but still standing for over 250 years as well as the topiary yew hedge, planted by William Berington in the first years of the last century.
There are magnificent cedar trees, planted from seeds brought back from the Holy Land by Charles Michael Berington. The chain of lakes, formally fish ponds for the monks, follow the layout from a plan dated 1720 and, like much of the present garden, were restored in the 1980’s.
