The cows on the Castlemorton common
in the 2 full seasons we have been open, we have gone from strength to strength and thats all thanks to you, our valued campers. Last year saw us fully booked for most weekends during the season, which was fun but busy. So this
year we have reduced our marketing in order to put the customer experience before profit and are also reducing the amount of pitches on offer. Our aim being to provide an up market camping experience at an average cost, which is why we have not raised our
prices this year.
Our relationship with the Freedon Camping Club has begun to introduce exempted sites to a wider caravanning community which is great although a few still think this is a huge commercial site with every facility under the sun, we are
not, we offer power, water and disposal facilities, thats it, so if you want a stay in an active farming community,surrounded by cows and sheep and with an independant village pub 3 mins walk away this is the place to come.
We planted a lot of new shrubs and trees last year ready for this season, but a lot of them were eaten buy the sheep that roam the streets around here but the ones that remain are doing very well and will
be huge in a few years time. This is what makes this area unique. You will encounter the sheep during your stay, perhaps up our track and in our yard. The free roaming cows are consentrated on Castlemorton common these days and will very often bring
traffic to a stop on the Castlemorton straight. If you are lucky one might even poke its head in your car window to say hi thanks for stopping. It is also possible, to have the cows and sheep visit our site so keep the gate shut or they will eat your awning.
There are many local events planned this year, especially in Upton-Upon-Severn. This sleepy little riverside village with its many pubs and restuarants focussed around the river crossing is becoming widely known for its free or definately value for money
The Blues festival is probably the most popular as it is totally free, and its not just Blues music either lots of different mainly up tempo styles can be heard eminating from the cosy venues, most often local pubs or the small marques
place strategically along the lanes. Rock and roll, Jazz, Electro Swing and loads more. Performances normally start on Friday night to Sunday evening.
Dont forget the other events, Jazz Festival, Folk Festival and the Sunshine (mainly retro 80s and
70s acts) Festival to name just a few. Showaddywaddy and Suzi Quattro were there over the last few years.
Eastnor Castle and The Malvern Showground have many specialist events too, all well worth a visit especially the international firework competition
However, if you just want to chill the Farmers Arms, our local, 3 minute walk down the lane, offers excellent food and drink and is a wonderful place on a hot summer night. We have had complaints though, apparently its so friendly, a quick
half has turned into an all night event on a few occasions as the locals are easy to talk to and welcome 'outsiders'.
If you walk 3 minutes along the lane in the other direction you will end up on Coombe Green common. From here you can walk off road
for many miles and to the top of our famous hills, enough distance and elevation changes to satisfy even the most avid walker yet also suitable for an easy scenic stroll.
I hope this is enough to wet your appetite but if you are not convinced read our
client reviews , you wont be disappointed.
We look forward to hosting you and making your break as pleasant as possible.
Thanks for reading, see you soon.
