Martin Page, General Manager, The Elms

With winter hopefully behind us now, there’s lots coming to life this April in beautiful Worcestershire. Whether you’re a town or country person, you’ll find so much to do whilst you indulge yourself in a comfortable stay at The Elms.

Worcestershire April | The Elms

Spring garden beauty

This county is never short of an attractive garden to visit and as spring fast approaches, the colours return and so many trees and plants refresh themselves for the season ahead. Just a couple of miles from The Elms, you’ll find Witley Court and Gardens. Owned by English Heritage, this glorious location will become enriched with so many scents and colours in the weeks and months ahead. Visit over the Easter weekend and you’ll also experience Adventure Quest, should you be looking for a family day.

The Arley Arboretum is a further delight at this time of year. With a simply stunning Magnolia garden in addition to a Rhododendrons & Azaleas garden, a stroll through this arboretum is both relaxing and inspirational.

Fun spring events

The Three Counties Showground is hosting Countrytastic on 5th April. This busy event showcases plenty of countryside activities whilst offering plenty of shopping from the locality too. All ages will enjoy an entertaining day.

Crossing the county border to Shropshire, the market town of Ludlow starts its horse-racing season at the Ludlow Racecourse. You’ll find events on the 9th and 24th April.

As if you need a reason to take a trip on a heritage steam train, the Severn Valley Railway provides a great way to enjoy the Worcestershire countryside as spring emerges. Take a trip from Bewdley to Bridgnorth, following the route of the River Severn. You might even see some interesting wildlife as you pass the West Midlands Safari Park!

Countryside walking

Perhaps the simplest pleasures in this corner of Worcestershire come from the great choice of walking that’s available within reach of The Elms. Whether it’s the Abberley Circular Walk, a stroll in Wyre Forest or perhaps climbing the Malvern Hills to enjoy the far-reaching views, you can relax and refresh in the spring air of wonderful Worcestershire.
