Why stay here ...

Elgars View’ is nestled in the Worcestershire Countryside alongside Pine Woods with unobstructed glorious views of The Malvern Hills & Countryside. Aptly named after the Great British Composer, Sir Edward Elgar, as he would sit upon the hills drawing inspiration for his famed music from the views below.

Whilst easy access is afforded from the M5 (8 minutes 4 Miles) & M50 (9 Miles 18 minutes) you can gain easy access to a wood gated initial hard standing area onto a large field with the views beyond. We have kept it rural with covered washing area and clean waste area.

This unspoilt area has limited access to Caravan and Motorhome Club Members only.

The location benefits with ‘quiet away from it all’ Countryside Public footpaths with a Pine & Flourishing Blue Bell Wood within a minutes walk yet a short drive (2.4 miles) will have you arriving at The National Trusts, Croome Court, with its Walled Gardens, Church, Air Museum, Cafe and famed Capability Brown Gardens. 

The Historic Market & Abbey Town of Pershore, upon the River Avon is a simple 8 minute (2.9 Miles) drive away. Ideal to explore and visit the meadows and wetlands. Elgars View has an affinity to The Star Hotel in Pershore with its restful riverside garden. For Fine food and selection of local Ales you may visit The Plough and Harrow Public House, just a 1.5 mile walk away and the Masons Arm Public House is within walking distance.

The Cathedral City of Worcester is a 17 minute drive away (6.9 Miles). An award winning place of beauty, regularly reviewed as one of the top places in the UK to visis, affectionately known as ‘The Faithful City’ and home of the famed ‘Royal Worcester Porcelain Museum’ amongst others. The ‘City’ has new shopping centre, a network of Olde Pubs, Tea Rooms, Cafes and Eateries ideal to explore at your leisure. Just a few miles further you can visit Elgars Birthplace with revamped Visitors Centre located at Broadheath.

For unique local history then a visit the 12th Centre Nave at St Peters Church at Pirton, is a 5 minute drive. With a timber framed North Tower probably of Medieval origins it’s a little unspoilt gem.

Local Festivals and Showgrounds include Upton Upon Severn Festivals & The Three Counties Agricultural Show grounds respectively 7.5 miles & 13 miles away.

For cyclist, you can join the road outside the site onto the ‘442’ Worcestershire Cycle Route carefully signposted meandering through breathtaking countryside.

The local Bus Service heads either to Worcester or alternatively Eckington village, within close proximity of Bredon Hill and its Tower. A timetable will be displayed on site along with local places of interest,  some ‘off’ the beaten track and only known locally.

To conclude you may wake to a passing Monk Jack Deer, a circling Buzzard or the sighting of a brightly coloured WoodPecker - ‘our’ visitors throughout the year.

We hope you get chance to get a bit closer to nature and enjoy our clean facilities and the unparalleled views found here…yet able to jaunt at your leisure to some amazing local places.

Weekend get away

Stayed here for the Bank Holiday weekend. Two miles from Croome and well positioned for visiting Worcester and the Cotswolds while out of the way of the main tourist mayhem. Superbly maintained and a warm welcome from the owner. We will definitely use this as a base for exploring the area in the future. We were amazed to find how quiet the site was for the Bank Holiday when other sites were turning people away. Obviously an undiscovered gem.

Fantastic CL!

Being close to the M5, we stayed here last week to break our journey from Devon back to the North West, and it was one of the highlights of our holiday! Ros, the owner was so warm and friendly, and couldn’t do enough for us, even booking a table at the local pub- the Plough and Harrow. Every night is carvery night, there and we had a wonderful meal out - not to be missed. The site is very spacious, lovely and peaceful and was brilliant for us with our dog. We’ve now stayed at quite a number of CL’s in our Campervan, but this has to be the best yet. We will definitely be stopping off in the future and maybe stay longer next time, Full marks all round- Elgars View gets our vote for CL of the year it was that good! Thank you Ros for such a lovely end to our holiday. Andrew, Karen and Eliza

An off-grid gem

Helpful & friendly owners, super simple facilities which are well set up, e.g. drinking water separated from the cassette wash out. A great place for the self contained. Very convenient for Croome, 5 minutes to drive or an easy flat cycle ride on country lanes. Easy access and the written directions are spot on. We will certainly be returning.

What a Gem!

Just the sort of site we love. A safe spot to stay with a lovely warm welcome and a peaceful tranquil setting. No further development needed, this is spot on for a CL. Great footpath network offering good walking options, and a cycle route that we’ll no doubt try out on our next visit. The woods were indeed full of bluebells, and there is plenty of wildlife in the area. Lovely open views, and a perfect spot to watch the sun set.

Elgar would approve

New site located in a beautiful rustic part of the countryside with a very friendly host. Grass pitches (still needing full development at August 2017) without EHU, Croome National Trust nearby, great cycling roads. Perfect for a relaxing, secluded break.
