The Annex self-catering accommodation is ideally positioned to enjoy miles of footpaths around Hanley Swan, and the Malvern Hills and is perfectly positioned for the many events held at the Three Counties Show Ground, which is about a mile away. Upton Upon Seven is just 3 miles with a few pubs and restaurants, and it is host to many events throughout the year such as the Jazz, Blues, Folk, and Sunshine Festivals.

If you want to treat yourself to a cooked breakfast Gigi can supply a hearty breakfast served in the Annex for an extra fee or the Swan Inn in the village serves breakfast from 8 am. If you want to head down to the pub for an evening meal, please make sure you book a table prior to arriving as they are always very busy. The Swan is dog-friendly.

Hanley Haven

Can highly recommend The Annex self-catering accommodation, Gigi is a wonderful host– great communication when booking and is very friendly and kind ( thanks for the duck food for our daughter!) and the Annexe has everything you need and more.  We were sad to go


We were looking for a relaxing weekend with some walking in the hills and that’s exactly what we got. The warm welcome from Gigi and Charlie was great. The accommodation was of a very high standard and we were made to feel at home from the first minute.


Words can’t express how grateful I am for Gigi and Neil’s hospitality. I do not drive and Gigi happily picked me up and dropped me off at the Great Malvern train station. The Annex is very clean, and spacious, with loads of storage, and the surroundings are beautiful and have nice solitude. 


The whole experience was amazing from start to end, with a warm and relaxing arrival greeting. Gigi was the perfect host, nothing ever seemed too much trouble. 

Perfect Home From Home

We have just returned from a week’s holiday at the Annexe self-catering accommodation and we cannot wait to return. We were made so welcome by Gigi and were treated more like friends than visitors, nothing is too much trouble for them. The property overlooks a lovely garden which is so peaceful and which is a nice place to sit after a walk in the beautiful hills.
