A DETACHED cottage near Malvern with "glorious" countryside views has been sold for more than £900,000.

Chappel Cottage, in Birchwood near Storridge, was sold by Nicol and Co along with 3.5 acres of grounds after a number of offers.

Erica Hinwood, sales manager at Nicol & Co’s Malvern office, said the level of interest in what was a “fantastic” property “shows there is a particular demand for properties with land”.

She said: “Chapel Cottage has a wonderfully private garden with beautifully manicured lawns, mature trees, an orchard and two ponds, one with a summer house overlooking it.
