Are you visually impaired and would love to explore the beauty of the town of Malvern nestling at the foot of the Malvern Hills? Malvern is rich in history from its mediaeval Priory to the Victorian heritage around the famous water cure and Malvern water. Come and join Sense Adventures for one of their stays exploring the beauty of the Malvern Hills with full days of walking and shorter walks depending on the day.

Don’t just take our word for it, read on for the testimony of previous participants…

Lee said, when asked what he liked best about the holiday: “I liked a few things. It felt like a relaxed tranquil location amongst the Malvern hills which meant I was able to sit outside the venue and enjoy nature, fresh air as well as lovely company. Equally enjoyed were the organized walks with the volunteers. Everybody was helpful, friendly and pleasant to chat to along the way. The food was top! Great venue smiles.”

Ester said, when asked how she felt about the volunteer guides: “I am deeply grateful to each of the guides, for without their voluntary support our weekends would not be possible. Luc [A guide] told me (this is not the exact quote, but very close) ‘The word volunteer means that we want to be here, willingly, we like it’, and this is what each of them communicates when I am chatting guided by them or helped having a meal. They manage to never be patronizing and feel like good friends who want to be there together.”
