Glamping in Worcestershire: Pet-friendly pods at the foot of the Malvern Hills with a cute village (and its pub) just a stroll away

As well as the eponymous roses flowering around the colourful borders at Rosebud Meadow, buttercups and dandelions are sprinkled amid the grass like yellow sun-spots and cow parsley leans its way through the fence that backs the field. The hedges, thick and green during summer, shield the camping area from a couple of nearby buildings behind, while, to the front the landscape is left open to reveal wonderful views. Flat pastures, grazed by horses run to the foot of the Malvern Hills, which rise in a ridge less than a mile away. The hills' presence is a constant invite to go exploring. The footpaths and bridleways here are excellent.

On the edge of Welland village, home to a white-washed, low-beamed pub – The Marlbank Inn – a playground, park and post office, Rosebud Meadow can boast a traditional camping location with easy access to the best of the Malvern Hills. The site itself, however, allows you to forgo the trials and tribulations of putting up your tent and bending all your tent pegs in favour of a more modern glamping option. Four pods, fully insulated and kitted out with the likes of fridges and televisions, overlook simple outside furnishings – there are picnic tables, a communal campfire pit and a BBQ for each pod.

You can bring your horse to the campsite (grazing and stables are available) but it's the on-site animals that are often the biggest hit with children. Cute pygmy goats playfully bound around in the adjacent paddock and they also have rare breed Falabella miniature ponies, even the very biggest of which is only 30 inches tall. They're too small to take riding in the nearby hills, so, if you haven't brought your own horse, you'll have to take off by foot. Climb the Herefordshire Beacon (2½ miles away) and enjoy 360-degree views of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The drift back down the slope to 'Sally's Place' for a rehydrating cuppa and a slice of home-made cake. "A taste of the hills", as the café itself proclaims. And what tasty hills they are.



Camping pods are fully insulated, double glazed and have electric lights and power sockets. Inside is a kettle, mini fridge and flat screen TV with a DVD player. Bring your own bedding (or sleeping bag). Each pod has a covered porch, with porch light. Horse prices start from £10 per day for grazing and £15 for stabling. Other animals onsite include, Annabelle the micropig, numerous pygmy goats (some for sale, so be warned, your children will want to take them home), miniature horses (rare breed Falabella ponies), Zwartble sheep and free range chickens.

Suitable For

Glamping only. Couples, families, dogs, horses – yes. Tents, campervans, caravans – no.


The campsite has direct access on to Castlemorton Common, an ideal place to exercise yourself and your dog, to fly a kite, to picnic or kick a ball around. Or you can set off for a longer walk, all the way to the top of the Malvern Hills (you only have to cross one quiet lane). Bringing your horse? There's direct access to over 3000 acres of off road riding across the commons and hills as well as miles of bridleways.

Food & Drink

It's a mere ½ mile walk to The Marlbank Inn (01684 310603), a rustic, real ale pub with exposed beams and hearty pub food. It's 1½ miles to The Inn at Welland (01684 592317) a far more up-market, country establishment offering modern British food. There's a small convenience shop and post office (01684 310377) in the village too.

Great place to stay.

Clean, well-designed pod. Great facilities on site ( kitchen/fridge/tables/ eggs to buy/ modern shower ) and well-organised for Covid-19 situation. Loved seeing the unusual farm animals and gazing at hills.

Beautiful peaceful stay!

The pod was basic but just what we needed to enjoy a peaceful break! Very clean, contact free check-in. Individual bathrooms allocated to each pod due to Coronavirus - Would definitely recommend this campsite and would love to stay again!
