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.

Favourite

The Malvern Hills are our favourite place and the site ticks all the boxes for us. We’ve stayed here several times as the location is lovely. The walks from the site are charming, the local pub is fab. The cycling is excellent flat, quiet country lanes or if like a challenge the hills are there. The site is one of the biggest but very spacious, lots of nice grass pitches and does not feel cramped. Having 2 toilet blocks cleaned at completely different times is common sense. Very easy access, nice view of the hills. Very slick check in service, at this time of writing you can still arrive at 12noon unlike most sites which are currently 1pm. If you’ve never been, we highly recommend. One negative for us, as Motorhomers the bus service is not great.

Well spaced and peaceful.

Stayed over the first May bank holiday in May, Covid security was first class, a nice spaced out site with views of the Malvern Hills, I walked the entire length of the hills and then into Great Malvern for a pint, what a way to spend a Saturday morning, I highly recommend, overall I enjoyed my stay and will visit again.

Good site, with stress free access and nice facilties

Visited on BH weekend to visit family in local area. The local roads to access the site are pretty good eliminating the stress of getting there (Longleat being the opposite). The site is huge with a C&C site next door. Generally it's to the usual Club standards but... There's one frustrating thing to be aware of: the standard pitches are either grass or hard standing but it's pot luck if you find an empty hard standing. For me in poor weather without an awning that's not a great selling point. Also there's not enough blocks for my liking particularly at the moment with social distancing. But the 2 that are there are clean and in good order. The noise level was pretty good at night save for the usual numpties sat in their awnings chatting loudly until the small hours. We may come again due to location but it wasn't quite blow me.away quality.

Bring your ear muffs

Lovely site, though quite large. Excellent facilities, absolutely spotless. Good local pubs. The serenity of this site was spoiled for me by the constant noise of lawnmowers, droning on, mowing grass that seriously did not need mowing. Each and everyday, I appreciate that this needs to be kept up but that along with the tree cutting meant we left the site during the day to get away from the noise. Peaceful after five pm.

Clean and well organised

This is a lovely site with clean washing facilities and a lovely layout. We visited after very heavy rain so some of the central grass pitches were a bit soggy. One outfit got stuck and the staff were very kind and helped him out and the immediately repaired the grass. It is a good position and lovely walking and cycling is available from the gate.
