Hanley Swan is situated halfway between the bustling town of Malvern with its famous Theatre and the beautiful Malvern Hills, and Upton upon Severn with its marina and range of music festivals running throughout the year. Within the village itself, The Swan Inn overlooking the village green has an excellent reputation with bar, restaurant and beer garden.

Malvern offers a range of shopping and amenities, but for those that like a little more variety, Worcester and Cheltenham are close by where there are all major retailers as well as a good range of high street, traditional and craft stores. Both are well catered for with cafès, gastro pubs and restaurants for all tastes.

Local private schools include the renowned Malvern College and Malvern St James, both boarding and day schools.

Commuters have access to the national motorway network via the nearby M5 and M50. Great Malvern railway station provides links to Birmingham (just over an hour), London Paddington (2.5 hours), Worcester, Hereford and Oxford. Birmingham and Bristol Airports are around an hour's drive away in either direction.
