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 Indian street food 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. 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.

  • Electric hardstanding and grass touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    pint of HPA

    Disliked: 

    No light in toilet/shower block, luckily had a torch. Shower broken, toilet very soiled. Very little maintenance. Dog muck on our pitch. Overgrown and untidy. We paid £35. very poor value in comparison to other sites. Check opening times of pub too as only serves food wed to sat.

From the manager...

Thanks for taking the time to send your feedback over! I'm sorry you had a negative experience. We do always ask that if you see something let us know but I can appreciate we need to get these things right the first time. I think it may have been the case someone accidentally turned off the wrong light switch overnight and while we have someone to tend to the garden if it has been particularly wet it can be unsuitable to mow.
The kitchen is indeed only open Wednesday through Sunday (The pub is closed on a Monday too) but these times are noted on our website and Pitchup.
I hope we can see you back here another day to hopefully change your mind. Until then - Happy travels!

Lovely campsite, clean facilities, highly accessible26/07/2021

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

    Very easy going, allowed us to have three pitches with plenty of space as a group of 10. We liked the self check in and the fact we could crack straight on getting our tents up. Lovely part of Malvern.

    Disliked: 

    We visited the Marlbank Inn for food one night and I have to say the service was a little off. Our waitress seemed frustrated that she had to serve us. One of the food orders arrived incorrect which was soon corrected. However, we didn’t feel the food and service justified the price. Although we would definitely return to the campsite, we perhaps wouldn’t revisit the pub itself.

From the manager...

Thanks very much for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in the campsite!
I'm sorry your experience in the pub didn't meet expectations, and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know. We would love to have you back again one day and hopefully change your mind!

Thank you for your review and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us!
We do have a tap in the campsite and by the sink so you can easily attach a hose or bring a barrel over but if needed we do have a hose on the patio too that our guests are welcome to use.
Hope to see you back here again one day soon!

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.
