“This circular hike begins at Great Malvern station, heading up onto Worcestershire Beacon and along the hills. Mount Pleasant Hotel is 1km into the hike, which is perfect if you want to drop bags before setting off up the hill. The hard work comes in the first half of the day, before reaching The Kettle Sings, a charming café with a homely menu and a friendly atmosphere. The first hour and a half may be all uphill onto the Beacon, but the views make it all worth it. Once you’re up high, the gradient levels out and the magnificent views seem to carry you the rest of the way. With stunning scenery in all directions, you make your way on to Pinnacle Hill, before heading back along the western ridge of the Malvern Hills.”
