Mere lodge is situated on the outskirts of the lovely Worcestershire village of Hanley Swan, with its local pub/restaurant, village duck pond, shop, churches, and not far from the village school. Very close by is the Three Counties Showground which holds events year-round, and not far from that is the Worcester Golf Club. Malvern is a few minutes' drive away, a small town with theatre, cinema, and famous for its water cures in Victorian times and its' illustrious visitors to them. Malvern, the Hills and Worcester are at the heart of Elgar country; his birthplace is now a charming museum near Worcester. Malvern is also home to the Morgan Motor Company and their visitor experience is highly reccommended (booking essential).
Worcester is about 15 minutes drive away; there the Cathedral, Commandery, Bishops' Palace, Diglis Canal Basin form the centre of this very historic city on the banks of the River Severn. Although no factories remain, a museum of Royal Worcester Porcelain can be visited on the factory site, and across the river from there is the Worcestershire Cricket Ground, New Road.
IMere Lodge itself is built entirely of real logs, with a grass roof and surrounded by a small garden and a pleasant patio with seating. There are 2 double bedrooms (2 double beds), a full bathroom ( bath with shower over, hand basin and toilet, heated towel rail), a separate cloakroom with toilet and hand basin, and a fully fitted kitchen with all mod cons, including dishwasher and microwave, full size fridge-freezer, integrated oven hob and extractor fan. Linen is provided; snowy white sheets and towels for four guests, bedding, and kitchen linen.
Situated in a lovely quiet spot at the end of a short country lane, the lodge is surrounded by fields on two sides, looking directly at the Malvern Hills; well-behaved family pets are welcome by arrangement and at no extra charge. The lodge is next to bridle paths leading to the Hills, and by footpaths, and there is no passing traffic. Guests really need a car, but shop and pub /restaurant are within walking distance. Parking space for two or three cars is adjacent to the lodge, where there is also the patio facing west to the Hills
Normally bookings are weekly, but in mid- or low- season reservations can be arranged for shorter periods; all bookings are arranged by phone and that is the fastest way to secure your reservation which is confirmed once a deposit has been lodged. Stays for shorter periods are often available, particularly at the last minute. Changeover day is normally Sunday, largely to accommodate those visiting or exhibiting at the showground, and rentals are set between £340 and £500 per week depending on season, with a minimum charge of £250 for any stay.

Great holiday, despite wet and windy weather.
Loved the lodge, cleanest we have ever stayed in, with superb views. Would love to come back and explore more; great village shop; lovely to wake up to the sound of birds and cows and not traffic. Thanks Lesley !

What a week! Sunshine nearly every day so we've been walking (and walking and walking) The walk directly from the lodge to the foot of the Malvern Hills was excellent - saw red deer, hare,
squirrel, farm animals; the trees were changing colour - beautiful ! Then on top of the hills (Chase End Hill, Ragged Stone Hill, v
steep), wonderful views. You just can't beat this place!

What a spectacular view of the Malverns; we will come again just for that. Appreciated the window catch in the lounge; summer is ending but blooms of hibiscus hangs on!!

Our second visit, and we found Mere Lodge as delightful as the first time. Very comfortable and well-equipped.
By Ian & Carol, South Wales on 23-Jul-2017
Has been a good week, from the good weather to the spotlessly clean cabin. Hillside views especially in the evening have been stunning : will be whistling "Fields of Barley" by Sting for many months to come
