Camping field

General

  • Traditional and welcoming pub site at the foot of the Malvern Hills
  • Three miles from the Three Counties Showground
  • Dogs welcome on site and in the pub

It's just as well for one's waistline that the Malverns have some of the best hiking and ramble routes in the land – for there's a full pub menu of eats and drinks to get through at The Marlbank Inn.

And it's just as well that said walks are simple to access too, as you might be a tad full after sampling said menu: the inn and its campsite are at the foot of the Malvern Hills within easy reach of scenic and slimming walks. The Marlbank Inn is in rural Worcestershire, close to geocaching and treasure trails, fishing and bike rides, and Worcestershire Golf Club for gentle teeing off. Events and shows are easily sorted from here too, as the Three Counties Showground is within three miles.

The Marlbank is a traditional and welcoming country pub, with a sheltered camping field well placed for handsome views over the hills. There's a playground on site, and family attractions like Ice Quest Malvern and a leisure centre with pool are within 15 minutes' drive.

Facilities include toilets and showers, an undercover washing-up area and disabled facilities, along with chemical disposal and ice pack freezing. Dogs are welcome on site and in the pub.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Tents are not accepted until Monday 17 May 2021.

The toilet facilities are closed until Monday 17 May 2021. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

The shower facilities are closed until Monday 17 May 2021. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

    Great location at the foot of the Malvern Hills brilliant for walking. Showers and toilets attached to the pub but open 24 hours. Chemical empty point was clean and well lit.
    We ate in the pub one night (Covid guidelines in place) the food was amazing with friendly service.
    We booked a hard standing with grass pitch (which was level) even with the lashings of rain didn’t get too muddy. One to revisit for sure!

    friendly welcoming staff showed us to our pitch and explained where facilities were, clean facilities available 24 hrs, lovely walks straight from the site and nice pub.

    Disliked: 

    Could do with wider hard standing area, run of slabs to park over but when you leave your vehicle you are on muddy grassy area so muddy feed brought into camper. however they did try to combat the issue offering a pallet to step onto. Water in the washing up area was less than luke warm so washing greasy dishes was a challenge.

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments,
Campers/mobile homes come in all sizes !
We don't have small pitches and some are longer than others YOU can request a longer one ...maybe next time .
The staff do work hard and try to make every guest happy .

Local attractions

After all those Malvern Hills hikes (for that really is a mighty fine eats and drinks menu in The Marlbank Inn), set off for indoor and outdoor days around the Malverns and its countryside.

Days out for families include laser questing and ice skating at Ice Quest Malvern; taking the self-guided Spy Mission treasure trail around the hills, and pummelling clay into submission at Green Frog Pottery, 15 minutes' drive away. Kids – and grownups – of a certain sort might also like the Malvern Museum of Local History; if not, Ledbury's 19th-century Eastnor Castle has regular events including family days and sword fighting sessions (foam swords, you may be somewhat relieved to hear). Both museum and castle are 10 minutes' drive away.

For a peaceful day out, drive 25 minutes to the meadow valleys, orchards and woodland of The Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve, to look out for woodpeckers and nuthatches, dormice and bats (the reserve has 11 of the UK's 15 breeding species). Pick up a free trail leaflet or buy a family trail guide and information booklet at the visitor centre, to head out after another bite to eat in the picnic area.

Must see

  • Malvern Hills (3.5 miles)
  • Eastnor Castle (4.0 miles)
