The Marlbank Inn: 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; menu of Indian street food

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 tasty menu of North Indian cuisine 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. Family attractions like Ice Quest Malvern and a leisure centre with pool are within 15 minutes' drive.

Facilities include toilets and showers, drinking water, 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.

  • Liked: 

    Good location for Malverns access.
    Friendly and helpful staff
    Toilets clean and tidy
    Very good pub restaurant with cracking food.

    Disliked: 

    Site is tired and needs a lot of tlc. Showers work but are very gloomy, no natural light and poor ventilation with ceilings showing many months of mould growth. The site generally is in need of a good weed, grass cutting and strimming by someone who cares what it should look like. The washing up area is very basic with drainer that drains the wrong way.
    It's so annoying that minor things spoil this site. It feels like it's run as a 'side line' and as a result it doesn't have the focus or tlc of someone who cares enough.
    It's not bad , but it could be good.

We are looking into getting recycling bins soon as i know this is a request we receive a fair amount. The lawn mower decided to break on us last week and have had issues getting that sorted - the campsite is now tidied up and grass has finally been seen to!

We loved the site and plan to return again soon15/06/2022

  • Non-electric grass tent or campervan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    when we arrived we had vastly underestimated the size of pitch we needed! Friendly and helpful staff so had us on something more suitable. Site was fine, no issues at all.

    Food, beer and top shelf in the pub was great and the staff friendly and inviting.

    Disliked: 

    Only one really minor gripe... the management team could do with fixing a couple of locks, one on one of the shower cubicles and one on one of the male toilet cubicle. Simple and cheap fix which would improve the availability of the facilities. Just to point out we didn't need to que or wait for facilities, i'm probably being too exacting to fill the "disliked" box in the review section.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay!

The minor lock problem has been rectified and both locks are now working! Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
We have CCTV all around the site including outdoor and indoor spaces.
Our lawnmower decided to break on us just before the grass was due to be cut, we are working on getting this resolved.
We have implemented contactless check in to make it easy for campers to go straight onto their pitch and set up without added hassle of having to come and check in.

Directions


Access to the campsite is through the pub car park. Please be careful not to drive past the pub into the farm lane. For longer vehicles it may be easier to approach the pub from the west as it can be a tight turn in from the east.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

After all those Malvern Hills hikes (for that really is a mighty fine 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.
