Tinkers Hill is situated in the range of Malvern Hills that runs about 13 kilometres (8 mi) north-south along the Herefordshire-Worcestershire border. It lies to the east of Herefordshire Beacon with views across the Vale of Evesham and the Cotswolds.[2] It has an elevation of 213 metres (699 ft).[1]

In June 2004, the Worcestershire Bat Group identified Tinkers Hill Wood as being home to a colony of barbastelles, a species of bat protected under the European Habitats Directive.[3]
