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

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

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

Children under the age of 10 are not allowed in the bar area unless dining with an adult.

    Very friendly owners. Food in pub was lovely, especially the Indian food. Pub was friendly. EHU.

    Disliked: 

    No heating in showers or toilets. Very muddy pitches and large holes. Some pitches difficult to manoeuvre into due to the holes. Hardstanding was really only 2 rows of slabs for wheels. Quite remote location as next nearest pub was a fair walk away. No local shop.

From the manager...

I am sorry you had a few problems ,but a 6/10 really !
This has been a very wet winter and still is very wet ,yes there are some holes made by other camper !
The showers are to small for heating ,
Yes we are remote ,which is our main attraction .
Also there is a shop down the road ,which sells all you would need to say if you have not brought it with you already .
A few weeks of sunshine and the grass will be fine ,but i am unable to change the weather Sorry .

    Beautiful site with necessary facilities and dogs welcome both on site and in the pub

    Disliked: 

    No hot water making it impossible to have a shower or wash the pots in the pot washing area. Disappointing since it was the same when we stayed at New Year, but had thought it would be sorted by now. We may not stay again for this reason

From the manager...

Good morning camper <
I am sorry you had a problem with your stay with us ,
The hot water will work ....it has to travel a long way you just need to run it for a bit till it comes through !
We have had many plumbers look at it and in the process of getting it upgraded before the summer time .
Some should have told you to run it ,im sure if you had asked they would have told you .

    After a day shopping in the retail park, a short dirve and we arrived at The Marlbank. We had a very warm welcome from Stacey and a couple of locals, roaring log fire and local IPA on tap. Could this trip get any better....... YES YES YES. We were pitched in 9 whic was right next to the toilets and shower block. Table booked for 6.30. The food was amazing, we had a mixture of indian and traditional food. I feel it is the best indian food we have tasted. We will be back in the summer. Thank you

Sad to read your comments,
The water gets hot it just takes a little time to get there ! just needs running for a little bit of time .
The wash up area is cleaned daily ,and if you found it unclean you should have reported it to us .

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)
