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 Cotswold 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.

Peaceful

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
Three night stay in late October meant huge amounts of rain, but fortunately mostly at night. Nice views of the Malverns from the site, and indeed from some pitches. Facilities up to usual standards and wardens friendly and welcoming. Cycled to Upton upon Severn which was a pleasant flat ride of about four miles, has some lunch and cycled back. Fantastic to walk on the Malvern ridge itself - a short drive away and found motorhome friendly parking at the Gardener’s route car park. Hanley swan lovely village short distance away with handy shop. Overall, very pleasant and peaceful visit on the last few days of being open this year. I’m sure we will be back.

Ramble on the Malverns

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
We rambled with The Disabled Ramblers club; a great time! Campsite excellent; well organised, secure, and toiler/showers immaculate. Only one comment, the service point was up steps which meant to return to my caravan with a full Aquaroll was via a sloaped grass bank.

Walking to the Worcestershire Beacon from site

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
We have just enjoyed a lovely three nights at Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site. What a lovely site, with amazing views. We stayed here because we wanted to walk the Malvern Hills. We own a camper van and don’t like to move it once we’ve pitched up. On arrival, although very helpful and knowledgeable, ALL wardens said it was not walkable from the site as there are currently no buses running on the weekends due to COVID and Great Malvern is nearly four miles away. We just wanted to let fellow campers know it can be done! It is about a ten mile round trip taking in some beautiful countryside. We walked through the fields adjacent to the site to the B4211 up to Barnards Green and then onto Great Malvern. From the A449 through the Rose Bank Gardens up the 99 steps and then the zig zag path passed St Ann’s Well carrying right up to the Worcestershire Beacon. Once at the top, the views were magnificent. We then dropped down the other side walking to Upper Wynche and then cross country straight through Worcestershire Golf Club before walking the B4209 passed the Three Counties Showground and onto The Swan pub at Hanley Swan for a well deserved pint! Please note there is a footpath all the way on both the B4211 and B4209. Would definitely recommend both the site and the walk!

Second visit this year

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
First of all I should say that we do not normally visit the same site twice in one year, but this time was an exception for two reasons: 1/ It's a lovely quiet site in a superb location, and 2/ Our first visit was during the really hot spell in July. It was so hot that we didn't manage to do very much during the heat of the day other than sit in the shade with cold drinks. However, this time we made the most of it. The cycle ride to Upton along the backroads was very pleasant with very little traffic, and there are loads of walking possibilities direct from the site. The wardens sell a very handy little map in the site shop, which is a blown up version of the OS map of the immediate surroundings. It was really easy to plan several local walks starting at the entrance gate. Apart from that the site is spacious and well maintained. The wardens are very friendly and helpful when needed . . . . . Will definitely visit again.

Motorhomers

Malvern Hills Caravan Club Site
This is a good site if you have a caravan, the details of this site are quite misleading.It says there is a bus service with a bus stop just outside the site, what it doesn't say is that on Saturdays and Sundays there is no service. It also says that there is a village within half a mile, but it is actually nearly a mile away and consist of a shop and a pub, not really worth the walk. So if you have transport I suppose it is a good site to stay on. But if you have a motorhome and don't want to move it every time you want to go out then don't bother going. We will not return.
