Just back from a slightly chilly mid-August stay at Elmwicke. The site is located in beautiful countryside, with great views out over the Malvern hills. The only slight negative is its proximity to the M5, which adds a slight but noticeable background drone.
The site itself is very much back to basics - it's a large field with one shower, two toilets, two urinals, two washbasins, a washing up point and free roaming sheep! Although the facilities are small, Ruth (the owner) worked incredibly hard to keep them clean, visiting several times a day.
We really enjoyed being able to set a campfire and BBQ by the tent - the fire helped keep the chill away somewhat on an unusually cold August evening. The farm will also supply BBQ boxes and breakfasts. We had the BBQ box, and were very impressed - lovely steak and lamb burgers plus sausages, all locally sourced. It was also supplied with bread and a fantastic, fresh salad that was prepared by hand.
Other highlights were a trailer ride for the kids, followed by a tour of the farm buildings. My girls were very impressed to have been shown an owl pellet, complete with rat skull! The local pub (about 1. 5 miles away) is The Gloucester Old Spot and served excellent food, beer and cider.
Can't speak highly enough of this lovely little site - I'm sure we'll be back!
