From daring land-based activities and wet and wild water pursuits to activities with a difference, such as Land Rover 4X4 off-roading and clay pigeon shooting, it’s all happening around the Swallowfields nest.



There’s plenty of hiking, walking, mountain biking and cycling to be had on and around the Malvern Hills and the nearby Forest of Dean. You can even book a guided mountain bike ride! Just bring your bikes or simply hire them from us. There are guided walks or you can take part in a themed walk, such as the Literacy Trail, where you can follow in the footsteps of literary greats, CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien.


On water

Fancy making a splash? The River Severn and the River Wye are marine playgrounds and we’re lucky to have them close by.

Canoeing, kayaking, raft building and stand up paddleboarding safari are all available on the beautiful River Wye and River Avon. If that doesn’t float your boat, then perhaps a leisurely riverboat cruise on the River Severn or hiring a self-drive boat will?


Something different

If fishing’s your passion, there’s plenty of river fishing on the River Severn, with guided fishing trips, coarse fishing at Eastfield Fisheries and fly-fishing at Broad Oak Trout Lakes.

Car enthusiast? Visit the iconic Morgan Motor Car Factory and hire a sports car for the weekend. Off-roading more your style? The Landrover 4×4 off-road experience is well worth a go.

And if that’s not enough, how about an Arctic Quest Sled Dog Adventure?! You don’t have to travel to Alaska to experience the thrills of husky sledge dog trekking, we’ve got it right here on our doorstep!
