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.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Although we were heading for the south west and had booked this site for 2 nights as a step on the way, once we got there we never went any further and remained there for 14 nights, constantly increasing our length of stay. The site is extremely tidy and well cared for in all aspects. The toilet block was spotless and warm with plenty of hot water and the service points were well located. The staff were friendly and visible and were seen keeping the site in pristine condition, not easy when the leaves are coming down fast from the lovely trees around! We found plenty of easy walks available from site and explored the local area with the help of a book called 'Walks in the Hanleys' which we bought at the local well stocked village shop. We went further afield and explored nearby towns such as Tewkesbury, Worcester, Great Malvern and Ledbury as well as walking in the hills themselves. We never needed to go far though to see a selection of wonderful large trees which are particularly colourful at this time of year. Everyone we had contact with was very friendly and helpful and it was great to be back in an area of traditional shopping streets with good food available all round.

Another very large Club site - typical Club quality

We visited Malvern Hills Club site in mid October 2020, having booked for 6 nights. We arrived mid-week and there was a good choice of hard standings (grass pitches were no longer being used). We chose to stay in the higher area overlooking the lower part of the site. This had the advantage of being in good range of the WiFi which we frequently use for restaurant reservations and to plan days out and to make bookings for visits to gardens and properties. The Club website warns that there are issues currently with WiFi but it was generally Ok during our eventual 16 night stay stay - although very slow and difficult to access early/mid morning (when we were looking up places to visit that day) and again mid evening when we wanted to upload photos and email family (presumably when many other people also wanted access). The WiFi here obviously needs upgrading. We enjoyed our first few days in the area so much that we extended our stay by another 7 nights and then later again by another 3 nights. There are a number of National Trust places to visit, as well as the magnificent Malvern Priory. Gardens to visit include Picton gardens. There is an excellent pub (The Swan) about a 15 minute walk away and many other highly rated pubs in the area. We enjoyed some amazing top quality meals. The Malvern Hills are ideal for walkers, although parking is expensive. As always the site was immaculate, clean and tidy, the wardens friendly and helpful. We didn’t use toilet or shower facilities, because of the Covid situation so cannot comment on their condition. Mobile phone signal for O2 was poor and the Tv signal had constant breaks in transmission. We use an omnidirectional ariel and those with adjustable ariels may receive a better signal. Re-tuning several times didn't help.

Excellent site, very highly recommended

I highly recommend this site at Malvern. Last week I collected a new van from Wales and was delayed in setting off home to Cumbria so booked into the site at short notice. I was severely lacking in the usual domestic bits and pieces and the warden very kindly lent me what I needed, this was very much appreciated. My wife and I had stayed there twice previously just for one night on route to Wales for business and we plan to revisit for a weeks holiday in 2021. The site is very well laid out, the toilet blocks are spotlessly clean and there are so many easy walking footpaths close to the site to explore the local area. Thanks again we will be back

Fabulous Mid Week break

We stayed at Malvern Hills Caravan Club site last week. The wardens were friendly and welcoming and the site is beautifully kept. It was a perfect location for us to explore the Malvern area which we had never visited before and now that we have a taster of what is there, we will be back at some point
