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.

Nice site, but pay close attention to the on-site direction signs

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
This is a lovely large site. Mainly grass pitches, with a varied layout, as opposed to the standard rows of pitches found on other CAMC sites. The entrance/exit of some of the areas aren't particularly well marked. Because it's mainly undulating grass pitches, an 'ideal entrance/exit route' to these areas has been designated. Some are quite ambiguous, which we found out when arriving and selecting the area for our van. The entrance to our particular area, was marked with a sign which we believed we followed, that led to a large concrete pad, with no units sited on it. As our chosen grassy spot was right next to the pad, we drove straight to it. When we were reversing onto our spot, we were politely-ish told off by one of the wardens. Apparently, we didn't enter the grass area between the small sign and a single 12" high scaffold pole in the grass, with red tape on it. No words on it, just a single pole with red tape. I tried explaining that if I'd known that, I would have done so. He did volunteer that the grass area entrance signing could be a little ambiguous, if one hadn't been to the site before. His attitude, whilst completely polite, was 'but, if I catch you coming in that way again....' Local knowledge is key. Needless to say, I hugged that post whilst entering and leaving! (Looking at the tyre tracks in the grass, I certainly wasn't alone at missing the entrance/exit. They were all over the place!) Our 'telling off' didn't detract from our stay. I only put it here so other newcomers can look out for the area entrance/exit posts, when selecting their pitches. We'd definitely recommend the site. It's kept very clean and is spacious. The local area is stunning and well worth a visit.

What a little gem!

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
Never been to Malvern before, booked this site and was not sure. However this is a lovely site. The location is ideal, there are lovely country walks direct from the site, a great pub only a mile away which has a path to it. The site itself is very clean and well organised. It is also about 20 minutes from the Malvern hills which are lovely. Would book again no probs.

Nice quiet site

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
Booked this site as I had a Morgan Experience day booked as a 70th birthday present. We were very lucky as the weather was fantastic, dry, sunny and very warm. Pitches are well spaced and mostly quite level, (helpful for us as our motor mover had given up the ghost the day before we set off!!) A small amount of noise during the evenings as some motorcyclists decided that everybody in the area should be able to listen to their latest toys, but that's no fault of the site. The only downside is I'm sorry we both decided to purchase WiFi access. A real waste of time as it only worked infrequently, so, unless you really need WiFi access, don't waste your money. We were near the entrance just after you enter the site, (pitch 14 I think) and phone reception was almost non existent, (Tesco network). I wouldn't normally mind, but I needed to phone my caravan dealer as our water pump packed up but couldn't. Technology aside, this is a nice, well maintained site and I will happily return for the Malvern Show next year.

Midweek Break

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
We stayed for one night in early June as a stopover on our way to Somerset and felt there was so much to do in the area that we came back for 4 nights in August. The site was excellent once again. We stayed on a grass pitch by the playing field. It was great and perfectly level. Wardens were very attentive and friendly and the site was run very efficiently and professionally.One of the highlights was a visit to the Morgan cars factory. Well worth the fee for the tour. We also visited Gloucester and Cheltenham as the site is only 1/2 hour away from either. For a nice dinner we recommend the Plough and Harrow. Great menu, food and service was very attentive. In summary, a great site, well located for the Malvern Hills. Will definitely return.

Anyway great site and staff during our stay during in August despite them being very busy. We used it to finish a very enjoyable Malvern Show and will come again.
