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.

Perfect site

Elgar's View is every bit as good as some of the previous reviewers have already said. You will receive a really warm welcome from the family who own it on arrival. The field is huge with really great views of the Malvern Hills and surrounding forests and countryside. The peace and tranquility here has been mentioned by others, a view which I fully agree with. The facilities are second to none for an off-grid site and members with solar panels could not wish for more. The emptying point and fresh water areas are scrupulously clean and even have disinfectant and soap there for members use. This CL is certainly one of our favourites and we will be returning time and again.

Fantastic CL

We selected this CL, more at less at random for a brief overnight stop over. It is just a few minutes from the M5. It is absolutely stunning. The owner had cut pitches into a traditional hay meadow covered in wild flowers, access is easy, owner is friendly. If you strain your ears you can just about discern a hum from the M5. This when we stayed was drowned out by the sound of the cuckoo in the adjacent wood. I have no doubt we will return and longer for just an overnight stop over.

An Absolute Gem

Back from 6 nights at this CL site. Absolute gem of a site and reluctant to leave. Whilst I would secretly like to keep this site to myself it needs a shout out as if you don’t visit you are missing something special. Easy access from M5 & onto the site. Description is accurate as is the photo. The welcome was extremely warm, the site immaculate, level ground and the facilities excellent unless you are looking for electric hookup which we weren’t. Site was peaceful with a view of the Malverns. Deer, buzzards, woodpeckers & swallows all spotted from our caravan. Pershore less than 3 miles away where you can buy groceries etc has an excellent butchers, bakers, market and an Asda as well as much more. Worcester is also a few miles away so lots there if that is what you are looking for. Sight seeing in abundance Croome Court, Pershore Abbey, Elgar’s House and more. Pub in Wadborough, less than a 10 minute walk from the site & does food if you didn’t fancy cooking. The purpose of our few days was a relax and walking our two border collies. We walked miles every day, starting before breakfast with a walk in the woods just opposite the site. Excellent for the dogs & deer spotted everyday. There are so many footpaths & bridleways from the site so no need to retrace your steps. We haven’t a bad thing to say about Elgar’s View, it was just perfect & would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Ros & Nigel, looking forward to our next visit. Carole, Graham, Brackley & Spooky
