General

  • In the grounds of a 19th-century country house
  • Static caravan accommodation in a woodland setting
  • Club complex with licensed bar; fishing lake; forest trails

A Hereford holiday spot with a difference is what awaits at near Bromyard, as it's been set up in the grounds of Saltmarshe Castle, a former country house dating back to 1895. (The castle has been no more since 1955, but part of the outer walls, turrets, outbuildings and stables still remain: have a hol here to imagine you're some sort of swashbuckling adventurer.)

Saltmarshe is in a peaceful woodland setting two and a half miles from the market town of Bromyard, on 67 acres of elevated and gently sloping south-facing land. Accommodation is in static caravans, many of which have spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.

Facilities include a club complex with licensed lounge bar, evening entertainment and a games room; a fully-stocked shop and a bar and restaurant. If you're more of an outdoorsy sort, a fishing lake and a recreation field are also on site, along with trails into the forest for early morning woodland walks.

Several farms, many selling locally grown fresh produce and ingredients, are in the area, along with garden centres, family restaurants with homemade food and gift shops selling arts and crafts.

    Peaceful area

    Disliked: 

    I book on pitchup a few times each year and normally have no issues. Having young children we go on holiday to let them have fun so I chose a site with children's entertainment, but when we got there we found out there wasn't any on during our stay even though I had specifically asked for it in the filters. After this we was asked to supply £100 deposit to get the keys, after questioning this I was told it was in the terms and conditions of the site, so I looked through all the information that I had been given and there was nothing about it, as a family with young children on limited funds £100 is a lump out of our money so this left us not happy. After paying we were told that our caravan wasn't ready yet and we would have to wait 20 mins for the keys. With the children getting very restless we waited. Other people were now turning up and being told to wait. Then suddenly we were all being told we was early that check in wasn't until 1600 and that we were in the wrong. So again I looked through all the information that I had been given and it clearly stated 1400. After explaining this we was told it was pitchup fault and that they had it wrong. We were eventually given our keys so got our caravan. The caravan seemed ok at first, looked clean but after a while we started finding pet hairs everywhere so we decided to sweep them up to our disgust the caravan started filling with dust from the carpet, it hadn't been hoovered in ages. When a site allows animals and charges for the privilege, isn't the money for the extra cleaning required after or just a way of making more money out of people? I have no idea how this site was given 9.1 out of 10 at the time we stayed #not happy

A large archive, a library and an exhibition room are open three days a week in the centre run by the knowledgeable sorts at Bromyard & District Local History Society.

Wildlife watching and walks are at the nearby Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve and among the 123 woodland acres of Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum, while more of the same plus mountain bike trails, horse riding and a Go Ape are north of Kidderminster at the Wyre Forest.
