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.

Large site ( to large )

Stayed here for a three night break, have to say not a fan of arriving and being told to go and find a pitch that may or not be hardstanding. The site is massive with grass pitches seemingly all scattered in every direction with hard standing pitches in between. We had booked a hard standing pitch as we have a large motorhome and when we arrived we're told that their might be only grass pitches left, now that seems to benefit people who can arrive early, and not people arriving after work, anyway about the site too big for us, pitches full of weeds and shower blocks in need of TLC. The signage as you arrive is a bit misleading as we also turned into the site next door as did lots of other arrivies, The location is good plenty of things to see and do and not too far to drive. A word of warning Malvern itself has a very steep hill so it's advisable not to drive through if your towing. We would visit here again only to attend the county show ground other wise we would look else where maybe somewhere smaller and better kept, I understand that the site itself must be hard to maintain because of the sheer size but when sites become too large to maintain you loose the whole essence of what the club promotes.

Lots of grass

First let me get the negatives out of the way. The signage for this site is truly appalling. If you follow the advised route the only sign you see is a very large one for the Caravan and Camping Club site that is next door. The CAMC sign is only visible once you have passed the turning and as it is the new small nondescript type you have to look very hard to spot, facing the wrong way and behind a hedge. Secondly if you are a fan of the little orange tractors or the big green and yellow ones this is the site for you. You can experience non stop grass cutting from mid morning until very late afternoon. The Site staff had at least three tractor mowers plus petrol ones going for three days solid non stop. This is not a site to relax on. Site located well if you like walking as the Malvern hill are on the doorstep and can be seen from the site. Both loo blocks are adequate and are kept clean.

Well worth a visit

If you want a site away the general hubub of life try this one. There is no road noise etc.. We were greeted by a very friendly warden and the layout of the site explained. The pitches are a good size and during our visit ther were plenty to choose from. There is a small wooded dog walk at the bottom of the site which is ideal.The are two facilities blocks with real hot water, not the just above warm water on some sites - bonus. We have been to the area before but there is always somewhere else to visit and take in a bit of history. Some good photography to be had as well. We can heartily recommend the Fish and Chip shop in Malvern - finding a parking place can be an art but it’s worth it. If you follow your sat nav to Morrison’s in Malvern don’t think it’s having a hic-up. Likewise for the Sainsbury’s Local. And whatever you do, make sure you follow the directions in the handbook to get to the site - Malvern in a car was “entertaining” never mind having the caravan attached.

Great site but looking unloved.

I have been going to this site for 4 years now, and this is the first time it has felt unloved. The grass was the longest I have ever seen it and the hard standing pitches are covered in weeds, also noted by our neighbours. The facilities were clean but there was a lot of dust on the shelves, the bins were emptied daily but to be honest I only saw one person that worked there our entire stay. This is a fantastic site and I hope it gets the attention it deserves, never have I seen it so quiet,
