So the end of this years season is nearly here, but thats good news, as the site gets less busy, and we have been really busy this year, there is more space for you. If you are really lucky you may get the place to yourselves especially
Our new relationship with the Freedon Camping Club has begun to introduced Exempted sites to a wider Caravan community which is great although a few still think this is a huge commercial site with every facility under the sun,
we are not, so if you want a calm and quiet stay in an active farming community this is the place to come.
The Freedoncampingclub.org website is another resource worth a visit when choosing a site as this is where you will find other small exempted
sites newly released from the clutches of the main multi million pound turnover clubs.
The beauty of the Freedom Camping Club is that you do not have to be a member to enjoy its facilities, you just have to sign in on arrival.
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
you to a halt on the Castlemorton straight. It is possible though, to have the cows 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 music festivals.
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 last year.
Castle and The Malvern Showground have many specialist events too, all well worth a visit especially the international firework competition in September.
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, enough distance and elevation changes to satisfy even the most avid walker.
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.
