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.

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

    Nice clean site

    Disliked: 

    The bar staff openly slating the owners and the way they run the pub in view of all in the bar area
    Letting a stag night book for the Thursday to Saturday night when they didn’t stop partying till 3am. My young son was awake most of the night.
    Being told that you couldn’t choose the Indian special menu if you were sat inside, so we went somewhere else for dinner. We came back later for a drink and found other couples being served the same dish I wanted in the restaurant
    The toilets were not cleaned enough or restocked, especially the ladies

From the manager...

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches08/29/2019

    Very friendly easy going management. The tent pitch was quite level and we had a very comfortable night's sleep.
    We had dinner and breakfast in the pub restaurant and both were excellent.
    The sight is very convenient for the Malvern Hills and Gt Malvern itself - we'd go again.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch was quite far from the toilets and showers.

From the manager...

Glad you had a good stay ,
The grass pitches are at the end of the campsite as the other have the electric hook ups ,close to the building .
The campsite is quite small only 24 pitches all together ,so its not really far to the showers and loos :-)
we look forward to you returning ,
you could book a hard standing as they come with grass to the side ,that would make you closer to the pub .
maybe an idea for you guys
best wishes

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)
