Location & Description:
Runnings Park is situated on the upper western slopes of the Malvern Hills and offers uninterrupted and spectacular views over countryside towards Wales and The Black Mountains.

The Old Stables is approximately two miles from the town centre of Great Malvern which offers a wide range of amenities including shops, banks, building societies, restaurants, takeaways and the Waitrose and Somerfield supermarkets. Malvern is renowned for its tourist attractions and in particular the theatre complex with concert hall and cinema. Sporting facilities are available to include the Splash leisure centre, Manor Park Sports Club, Worcestershire Golf Club at Malvern Wells and the Malvern Spa.

The well served village of Colwall is also about two miles distant and West Malvern has its own village community with primary school playing fields, church, village hall and public houses. There is immediate access to the paths and bridleways that cover the Malvern Hills.

For those requiring good transport communications there are mainline railway stations at Great Malvern, Malvern Link and Colwall with connection to London (Paddington), Birmingham and The Midlands, Hereford and South Wales. Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about eight miles distant.

Educational facilities are excellent with a number of highly regarded primary and secondary schools in the area as well as private schooling to include the famous Malvern College and Malvern St James.

Originally constructed as a Model Farm in the 1880's, Runnings Park formed part of the De Walden family estate. In the 1960's it was run as a farm but in 1981 it was purchased by four families and became a hotel/training centre. Runnings Park is now split into individual homes, all of which are set in approximately seventeen and a half acres.

The Old Stables is a delightful property which has been converted to provide beautifully presented accommodation which has been sympathetically refurbished. The split level accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall, superb sitting room with exposed timbers and minstrels gallery, a double glazed conservatory, large kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a family shower room. The whole property benefits from gas (LPG) heating and is mostly double glazed.

Features worthy of note are the exposed ceiling timbers and multi fuelled burner to the sitting room, double glazed conservatory with views over countryside, attractive minstrels gallery, a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Rangemaster stove and integrated dishwasher, large walk in loft space and many rooms have ceramic tiled flooring.

However a wonderful feature of The Old Stables is the superb garden which has been most attractively landscaped by the present owners and now provides a lovely setting to this property. Surrounded on all sides the garden affords a good degree of privacy yet does not detract from the lovely views over countryside. There is ample off road parking.
