The Dell House     Malvern, England

B&B and Self Catering Apartments at the foot of the Malvern Hills

Getting to The Dell House

By Train

The best railway station to arrive at is Great Malvern. Malvern has two stations, the other being Malvern Link, which is further away but not excessively so should you get off there by accident. Colwall also has a station which is comparably near 'as the crow flies' but there is a rather large hill in the way so it's quite a long drive around to us, and there will be fewer taxis there.

A range of taxis operate from Great Malvern station. The cost of the trip from there to here is around £10

By Bus

There have been reports of busses operating in Worcestershire. This information is probably of no use whatsoever as, in most cases, it will be quicker to walk (about 45 minutes for the fit). The hourly bus service No. 360 serves Malvern Wells. It takes 50 minutes to get from Barnards Green (5-10 mins downhill walk from the station) to Malvern Wells 3 miles away, but you do get a meandering tour of local villages and Upton upon Severn thrown in.

There is almost always a good supply of taxis at the station.

If you use a SatNav with our postcode it is most likely you will end up at the cemetery at the bottom of the Green Lane hill. Therefore, we recommend reading the following notes.

Note that the entrance to The Dell House is at an angle and Green Lane is fairly narrow, so it is much easier to approach from the Wells Road end.

From Worcester, Gt Malvern, ...

If you are coming from any distance you are likely to be using the M5. The best exit to use is junction 7 for Worcester South, then follow signs to "The Malverns".

Note that the brown signs for the Three Counties Showground take you on a somewhat circuitous route, so are not useful for the Dell House.

Proceed through Great Malvern following the flow of the road. When passing the village sign for Malvern Wells you will seem to be leaving Malvern, especially at night when the gas lamps on the A449 shed little light of any use. Wells is a long, drawn-out village; just keep going.

You pass the Railway Inn on the right. (Nearest good pub food).

After about a further half mile you pass the following landmarks on your left: the Spar shop; a fork to the Three Counties Showground; the Bhun Thai restaurant, and white railings. Slow down at the white railings.

A road joins diagonally from the left simultaneously with Green Lane joining at 90 degrees. Turn down the second, narrower road.

Before you go down the hill, on the right immediately after the church, are the stone pillars of the Dell House entrance.

From Cheltenham, Upton-upon-Severn, Ledbury, Hereford ...

If you are coming from any distance you are likely to be using the M5. The best exit to use is junction 8 for M50 then take the first exit off the M50. Follow signs to "The Malverns". From Upton take the A4104 via Welland but beware it ends in an awkward junction at the A449.

From here, or if you are coming via Ledbury, head north on the A449. We are about a mile from the A4104 junction. Pass the petrol station on your left. Green Lane is the next right, with a church (now apartments) on the corner. Take care here; the correct turning is not obvious, and sharper than you think.
