Spacious serviced pitches

General

  • Small site in the grounds of a Callow End traditional village pub
  • A 15-minute drive from the Malvern Hills and Worcester
  • Large beer garden with outdoor tables, play area and chickens

For those couples/travelling parties that frequently face disagreement over whose turn it is to be designated driver, there’s really only one sensible solution: bed down right there at the pub.

Dozing off at the bar might be considered a little unseemly, so The Old Bush’s owners Matt and Karen have come up with a better solution and set up pitches in the garden area behind their rural Worcestershire pub. Thus guests can partake of dinners accompanied by a few local ales/ciders before strolling home (to a peaceful corner with drinking water, showers and 24-hour toilets) in just a couple of minutes – how civilised.

In fact, the whole setup here is rather civilised: The Old Bush is a traditional country pub in the little village of Callow End, with food available at lunch and dinner times, plus a menu of mini meals for smaller guests. On warmer days the merriment spills out into the garden, where there’s a play area, an aviary and a little flock of chickens along with plenty of tables for open-air drinking, dining and admiring the views over the Malvern hills.

Of course, one can’t sit around in the pub all day (well, maybe not every day, anyway…), so it’s worth noting that this is also a handy location for walks, horse riding, games of golf, fishing and days out in Worcester and Malvern (both 15 minutes away by car). Handily, if you do ‘accidentally’ sup one too many at lunchtime there’s a bus stop in the village so you can still get out and about.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

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

    Had to ask for various info rather than being advised at check in.

From the manager...

Sorry you feel this way, we do our best We do sure who booked you in as you did not moan at the time, so I am afraid there is nothing I can do about it. Much easier to say something at the time. Sorry again we did not meet your expectations.

HI Thanks for the review there is always someone at the pub where you sign in. Also there is a dish wash area but unless you book in in the pub you probably will not find it.

Many thank for the great review, I am afraid electric points are not allowed in wet rooms, may put one in the corridor though, thanks for the feedback

You can also wander with woolly company from Simply Alpaca (25 minutes), play games of golf (10 minutes) or saddle up for horseback hacks (10 minutes’ walk).

Guests with an eye for greenery may like to schedule outings to some of the area’s fine gardens: Spetchley Park Gardens (15 minutes) and Showborough House sculpture garden (20 minutes) are both worth a stop, as are the walled gardens at the National Trust’s Croome Court (20 minutes).

It’s also worth taking a wander around Worcester (15 minutes) to visit the cathedral and Elgar Birthplace Museum, or to settle down for lengthy day watching the wickets at Worcestershire County Cricket Ground. Upton upon Severn (10 minutes) and Malvern (15 minutes) are other local options for town days.
