Converted into luxury apartments in 2011, Wells House offers high quality accommodation within a building with a fascinating history. Originally built in 1748 as a coaching inn, Wells House was later converted into a small hotel for visitors seeking the infamous Malvern ?water cure? at the nearby Holy Well spring. In around 1899 it became Wells House Preparatory School where Sir Edward Elgar taught music for many years. Celebrity chef Rick Stein also attended the school.
Malvern Wells is situated within the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the wooded eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills. Holywell road is a quiet road that rises high above Wells Road to nearly 800ft above sea level. From here there is easy to access wide treelined footpaths that traverse and wind their way up the hills. Holywell Road is one of the few roads in Malvern to boast original working gas street lamps. These gas lamps are thought to have inspired C.S Lewis?s iconic opening description of ?Narnia? from when he attended Malvern College as a boy. The landscape is also thought to have inspired JRR Tolkien?s ?middle earth?.
This apartment is arguably one of the best within the building given east and south aspect and second floor position. With 2m high windows, the inspiring view over the tree line can be enjoyed from a sitting position from within the apartment. Throughout, the accommodation is well laid out and beautifully appointed, with a comfortable feel akin to a large hotel suite.
