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.

March short break

This site is well located for walking from site. Getting there was easy along the access roads. The pitches were good and roads etc. well maintained. Disappointing that one toilet block was out of use and meant a long walk to the other side of the site. Why not just close off half the units in each block if trying to save on cleaning? Although the surroundings are generally quiet beware of the grass cutters especially the next door girl guide camp !

Malvern Hills

Be aware when entering site as also access to Camping and Caravanning site next door!! On arrival, the warden informed us that as the site wasn't;t busy there was only 1 toilet block in use which is understandable. However, they closed the one where most caravans were pitched and the section of the site that has views of the Malvern Hills?????? The toilet block, whilst clean, smelt of drains!! Visited Great Malvern and climbed Worcestershire Beacon, all paths look maintained though sections are very steep - well worth the effort.

A trip down memory lane

We were last at this site 24 years ago working as Assistant Wardens! Having returned we can do nothing but praise the Wardens and their Assistants for how well they are maintaining the site. The facilities are immaculate and the grass and hardstandings pitches are very tidy and we hope members realise how much hard work this takes to keep a site looking so good. To the Wardens keep up the good work and we hope to see you again.

Good Site Pity its Spoilt by Thoughless Dog Owners

Stayed here to attend the Autumn Show as we did last year. As expected the site was full but despite this the wardens coped magnificently, extra pitches created and facilities kept clean, tidy and well stocked. However my grip is with dog owning fellow members, can I request that they keep dogs on a tight short lead and walk on the roadway to the to the dog exercise area. Its here that dogs are expected to defecate and urinate, not on other pitches or grass areas when taking a short cut. Also when did it become acceptable to erect stockades to confine dogs in? These take manner forms from diy wire mesh screens, cages of various sizes and even bright orange roadway barrier fencing. Am I the only one that thinks these are not only unsightly but are a health hazard as dogs seem free to defecate and urinate at will, and when they have departed the pitch may be taken over by others who now, unwittingly pitch on contaminated ground. This situation is not unique to Malvern and needs addressing by the Club.

Great location with wonderful views of the Malvern Hills

Yet another peaceful and tranquil site run by the Caravan and Motorhome Club. We stayed for three nights with our grandchildren in the middle of August and had a wonderful stay. A warm welcome awaited us on arrival from the friendly wardens who invited us to choose our pitch. As always the facilities were excellent, well maintained and our barometer on how sites are managed lies on the condition of the toilets. They were spotless, in really good condition and a plentiful supply of hot water. There is a good children’s play area which our grandchildren really enjoyed, together with the added bonus of an outdoor draught board and Connect 4 which provided an alternative source of entertainment to help keep them occupied. Nearby is the village of Hanley Swan with a nice pub, and a 15 minute drive takes you to the Severnside town of Upton. The Malvern Hills offer an abundance of walks and magnificent views, and Eastnor castle is definitely worth a visit. Our first visit to this site, and will not be the last.
