Why stay here ...

Malvern Hills Club Site has the great benefit of the beautiful Malvern Hills to explore, making this historic area an ideal touring spot in its own right. Malvern is proud of its famous adopted son Elgar, and the Elgar Trail takes in his birthplace at Broadheath to his final nursing home in Worcester. Renowned for its pure Spring Water, Malvern also hosts a lively Festival and Fringe each May and has a Priory described as the finest parish church in England, all within easy reach of the caravan park.

From Malvern Hills Club Site it is just a short distance to visit local landmarks such as Worcester for its Cathedral and Royal Porcelain Museum, Upton upon Severn for the charming traditional pubs and Jazz Festival in June, Bromyard for September's Folk Festival and Ledbury for its quaint black and white buildings. While staying at this caravan site, don't miss the Cathedral at Hereford with its ancient Mappa Mundi and the excellent Cider Museum. For a memorable day out, car enthusiasts can enjoy a guided tour around The Morgan Car Visitor Centre, where you can witness the hand making of a Morgan car from start to finish. You can even hire a brand new Morgan for the day. The site is also only approximately two and a half miles drive from The Three Counties Showground. This is a fantastic venue for the many events taking place through the year, including The RHS Spring Flower Show, The Autumn Quilt Show, The Royal Three Counties Show, The Firework Spectacular and plenty more.

Within an hour's drive from the site you can also visit the rolling hills of the Costwold countryside, Hereford, Bullring Birmingham which offers fantastic shopping and leisure activities, the Birmingham NEC exhibition centre and Stratford-upon-Avon. All of these attractions can conveniently be reached via the motorway. You can also take advantage of transport links to other nearby places, including an hourly bus service to Worcester, Upton and Great Malvern, a good rail link from Malvern to Birmingham, and in the summer, a boat bus from Upton to Tewkesbury for the Tuesday market.

Great first time away, our dogs loved it too

This was the first time we have holidayed in our motorhome and what a great place to start, we stayed from Wednesday to Saturday. We got to choose our pitch and the staff were really helpful. The shop was well equipped too. They recommended a local pub and the food was amazing Steve had a ploughman's lunch and I had a jacket with cheese and salad both washed down with a nice cold beer! We got 10% off of food there too which was a bonus. Our pitch was lovely and spacious, there were grass pitches and hardstanding too, none of them were short on space. We were close to the dog walk which our dogs Buddy and Holly loved. It was a multitude of paths all interwoven and all covered by trees so it was lovely and cool for the dogs, they thought they were walking for miles but we were close to the site at all times. There were dog bins at either end. The shower blocks were clean and you could control the temperature and flow (not push buttons). You could see the Malvern Hills from the site. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely location

We stayed for 3 nights to break the journey home from Cornwall. What a lovely location and site. Wardens very pleasant and helpful and the usual excellent site services and cleanliness. As we only had two full days we walked on the Malvern Hills and visited the National Trust property at Croome. Good for local shopping with handy supermarkets nearby. Loved the layout with trees and shrubs, not the usual straight line of caravans on hardstanding which more resemble a car park.

Very attractive Site

As expected of a Club Site, Wardens helpful and friendly, facilities spotlessly clean and functioning. The site is quite large, and, although very busy over the weekend, was surprisingly tranquil. For those travelling in a Motorhome/Campervan, without additional transport, I would recommend, "arrive prepared", bus service exists, but, is infrequent, and, nearest (Village) shop is 1 mile away. There is a pub, serving food, (The Swan), a mile away. Food good, but, not low cost. There is very pleasant walking, and, some excellent cycling along quiet country lanes. We cycled to Upton-on-Severn, Tewkesbury, Worcester and Great Malvern. Great Malvern was a challenge! (we are 72, and "real" bikes, no batteries!). A surprising absence of dedicated cycle routes, or sign posts, take your OS Map! Overall, we enjoyed it, and, would recommend, will return.

Lovely Site

We stop at this site regularly on our trips to Devon and Cornwall. Our son and family live near the site and it is situated in a beautiful area with many places to visit. I always advise people to pay a visit to St Peters Garden Centre at Norton they have a smashing cafe with very good food. Praise to the wardens who keep the site very clean and tidy and are also very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the second toilet block needs some work and updating:- In fact when we visited last month there was a leak in the ladies block which made the floor quite wet. We also think the price of the site to be expensive in comparison to other club sites that have been updated.

We enjoyed the general ambience of the site.

As you would expect, Malvern Hills Club Site is clean, well maintained and staffed by some lovely people. We had a good short stay. The Site is great for walking into Great Malvern. The Malvern Hills are better served by CLs closer by. If you have access to a car, then all the far flung places mentioned in the details may well be accessible. In a Motor home you need places of interest either within walking or cycling distance. I don't really fancy cycling to Stratford or the Bull Ring. The area has many attractions and it is a very pleasant area. We enjoyed the general ambience of the site, even enjoyed listening to the Guide camp evening in the adjacent field!! A nice site in which to spend time.
