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.

Our umpteenth visit

Domestic circumstances (house move) have led to our spending a lot of time at Malvern this summer. On each visit, we've found our fondness for the site has grown.The spacious feel, the views of the hills, the facilities and friendly staff are a good base to start from. Add the attractions offered by the local area, especially the town of Malvern itself and you would struggle to find a better place to spend your leisure time. Perhaps that's why we're moving to Malvern!

LOVELY BIG SITE

This was our first visit to Malvern Hills and right at the end of the season. We found it nice and clean and the wardens were very friendly and helpful. How refreshing to have the toilet blocks cleaned early afternoon when you are out and about rather than late morning when you need them! We didn't have time to walk the local hills, but found the surrounding area to be well worth exploring with some nice local villages and towns. How cosy to sit by an open fire sipping a coffee in Upton upon Severn! We tried the local Swan pub in Hanley Swan as it was much recommended but found the food a bit pricey. My wife had the pollack and chips off the "pub classics" menu which was fine, but £13.50 is a fair bit for fish and chips. I had the "roasted loin of local cotswold venison" for £19.75, thinking it would be a steak rather than a handful of small medallions on some steamed greens. Maybe I am not cultured enough - I suppose you would call it nouvelle cuisine. We will definitely be returning to the Malvern Hills site as it is an excellent base to explore the area.

What a gem

This was our first visit to the site and as it is only 80 minutes from home I cannot believe we have not been before. Stunning with the trees turning to reds and golds. Easy to find and well located. Very well kept and helpful wardens too (aren't they always though). Quick and easy to Malvern and Worcester. The leaflet does mention that you could spend a day at the Hop Pocket. Hmm, you might only need an hour or so unless you stop for a cup of tea!

A Favoutite

Always a pleasure to visit the Malvern site. The facilities are very clean with super showers. For motorhomes the water point is easily accessed as you enter the site. The wardens work hard to keep the site looking tidy and in October the trees on site are such beautiful colours. The Three Counties showground is just 5 minutes away by car and local shops are easily reached at Barnards Green. As always we enjoyed our stay and will be back.
