The house at Wynds Point was built around 1860 by William Johnson, a successful Malvern builder, for his own occupation. It stands in a former quarry near the highest point of the Malvern Hills, looking west over Herefordshire.

In 1883 Johnson died, and the site was acquired by the singer Jenny Lind as a summer residence. The house was remodelled in the form of a chalet with overhanging eaves supported by birch columns, and the garden redesigned in a naturalistic style, with a summerhouse further up the hill.

After Lind's death in 1887 the property was bought by her admirer George Cadbury who maintained the site as a shrine to her memory.
