About Tenbury Wells
The journey from the centre of Worcester to exquisite Tenbury Wells takes you through some of the loveliest countryside in the whole of Worcestershire.
Driving through some of the counties oldest villages, you pass several old churches where it is often worth stopping to take a look around. The picturesque village of Clifton-upon-Theme has a main street lined with a mixture of attractive timber-framed black and white properties. This is a quintessential English village evocative of the time when a carriage and pair drove through the main street, rather than todays modern motor car.
The Tally Ho Inn lies at a cross-road, it is well worth stopping here for not only is the food excellent, but from this high vantage point there are stunning views over the Severn Valley in one direction and in the other direction, on a clear day the views extend across Ludlow to the green hills of Wales.
The ancient market town of Tenbury Wells is reached through lanes surrounded by fruit orchards and hop fields. It grew up on the banks of the River Teme, and perhaps it is the watermeadows of the Teme which give this beautiful landscape its rich fertility, for there is no doubt fruit and vegetables grown around here are simply delicious.
This is a prosperous town, with a pleasant mix of properties from most periods. Some are built of lovely mellow stone, and others belong to the romantic days of Tudor timber. The Royal Oak is a magnificent heavily timbered building which was once a coaching inn, it dates from the 17th century and has fortunately retained much of its original character. The Peacock Inn dates from as far back as the 14th-century, this nestles in the valley close to the town, here you can experience uneven floors, oak beams and all the timeless charm of yester-year.
A museum in Tenbury Wells will tell quite a bit about this lovely rural area, the town, old trades, and of the lives and times of its people.
The parish church is well worth seeing, it has a 12th century tower and Norman windows, but is mostly of 18th century re-build. There are many interesting treasures inside, and a lovely calm atmosphere prevails.
The shopping facilities are good, Tenbury caters for everyday needs, and has specialist craft and antique emporiums together with a few gift shops.
This is a pleasant town to explore on foot, it has a pleasing ambience and friendly locals. It is an attractive town at anytime, but is never more beautiful that at Christmas, when the shops of decked with twinking lights, festive gifts, and seasonal pheasant and partridge. It is then that the stage is set for the town to play host to visitors from all over for the national Holly and Mistletoe auction, held on the Tuesday before Christmas.
