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.

I would stay again!

Only stayed for one night on our way south. The countryside around was flooded and roads were closed and there were roadworks so getting to and away from the site from the M5 was difficult and tedious. Not the site’s fault obviously! Our welcome was warm and when I explained my husband’s disability the staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. They suggested a pitch, showed me where it was, helped me to get unhitched on the pitch and were generally brilliant. The next morning we were able to hitch up without help but the wardens came out to check us over and were ready to help if needed. When thanked they shrugged it off, saying it’s part of their job to help members. We will certainly return and stay for longer as it is a lovely site.

Large site with plenty of space

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October. The Friday & Saturday were VERY wet and much of the surrounding area was flooded. We had chosen a pitch at the bottom end of the site and many of the pitches around us were flooded. Although we did have standing water on our pitch it wasn't too bad and when the weather improved dramatically on the Sunday the water quickly dissipated. However during the heavy rain the sheer volume of surface water made it a bit difficult to get to some of the service points (a pair of wellies would have been useful ;-) ) We received a warm welcome from the wardens on arrival and they were always pleasant and helpful when we encountered them during our stay. The facilities were to the usual high standard of the CAMC. It was nice to see that both shower blocks were to remain open until the end of the season. On previous visits at this time of year the lower shower block has been closed and due to the size of the site it can be quite a trek to the other block. The site is ideally suited for the Malvern Hills if you enjoy walking. It's also very close to the 3 Counties Showground if you want to visit many of the shows held there throughout the year. The city of Worcester is a relatively short drive away and there is plenty to do and see there.

Warm welcome at Malvern

We arrived on this site breathing an immense sigh of relief having been evacuated from Tewkesbury due to flooding, which to say the least was very stressful. So to arrive on a beautiful sunny crisp Autumn day and see a spacious and welcoming site like this which is immaculately cared for with two heated generously sized and immaculate shower blocks, was tremendously appreciated. The wardens welcomed us in and we found plenty of hard standing pitches to choose from. The Malvern hills ridgeway is a must if you like to walk. We visited Croome, NT, well worth a visit. We only had a few days here and came to see the Autumn spectacle and wasn't disappointed, only had to look out of the front window to see the beautiful trees in all their Autumn glory. We will be back, but will avoid the wet season.

Late September Arrival and into October for a Full Week 1st Visit

Taking a full week on this site in a motorhome using available public transport. It is possible to reach Great Malvern from the site by using two buses. The local bus towards Worcester that stops about quarter to half mile down the road towards the village of Hanley Swan on the same side as the site is. Then change at Powick and walk for three minutes onto the main road and get the bus to Great Malvern. Going out is particularly easy and straight forward. Return is a little more tricky as connecting buses become less later in the day. It can be done though! As MH users we rely on the local services and up to date time tables are essential. Please ensure double checks are made in this location as the winter times are approaching and the service reduced. The site itself is calm and tranquil off season. We would not visit in peak season due to the grass areas being full with outfits. Most of our time here was extremely quiet with folk pitching to give neighbours space and quiet. The arrival of one outfit destroyed the tranquil atmosphere with its dog continued barking. Had we not been leaving the next day we would have asked the owner about it. The facilities are as you would expect and cleaned during the afternoon, a bonus imho. The mh waste point is easily accessed with driveover drains. However, a full circumnavigation is required of the site following its use, most frustrating and wasteful of fuel and a disturbance to others. Would we visit again? Most certainly but only off season.

Smber

We arrived on the Friday evening the VW show takes place at the Three Counties Showground. Having grown up in Worcester, and with family based locally, I had been reminded that the area would be very busy. We had a very limited selection of hard standing pitches available to choose from, and as we were staying for over two weeks, did not particularly want to move pitches. We selected a hardstanding pitch along a quiet back loop, relatively close to an amenity block, but without any views and at the furthest point from the dog walking area. We enjoyed exploring the local footpaths available directly from the site, as well as driving to explore the Malvern Hills including the Herefordshire Beacon, Midsummer and Ragged Stone hills, Eastnor Park, the Old Hills and National Trust estates at Brockhampton and Croome Park. When we were visiting the weather was a mixed bag of wet and windy, interspersed with sunny periods. We appreciated the hardstanding pitch for reducing the damp and mud.
