Cognatum’s single estate in Worcestershire can be found in Upton-upon-Severn. Worcestershire is a county of plentiful countryside, from the grasslands and many wooded nature reserves to the more dramatic beauty of the Malvern Hills. County town Worcester is famous for its porcelain, as ornate bone china has been manufactured there since the 18th Century, and both the Worcester City Art Gallery and the Museum of Royal Worcester feature fascinating exhibitions. Local days out could include visits to the beautiful Worcester Cathedral overlooking the River Severn, the majestic ruins and grounds at Witley Court, the steam trains at the Severn Valley Railway, or the great Benedictine houses of Pershore, Evesham and Worcester. There are also a number of opportunities to enjoy local sporting events, renown as the area is for premiership rugby, first-division cricket and horse-racing fixtures.
