Pershore and Worcestershire: A Perfect Getaway from London | Allens Caravans
Allens Caravans

London is, without a doubt, one of the world’s great cities. Bursting with attractions and bustling with activities of every sort, it can feel like there’s more than you could do in a lifetime.

But, for all its famous parks and leafy suburbs, London cannot provide the serenity, peace, and atmosphere that the British countryside can. Fresh air, green fields, hills rolling off into the distance, cosy towns, villages and plenty of wildlife. And true peace and quiet. These are things only a country getaway from London can provide.

If the hustle and bustle of London is starting to wear you down, we don’t think you can find a better cure than a break at our Bredon View Holiday Park Estate in the heart of Worcestershire. A modern holiday park designed around the existing landscape, Bredon View combines luxury with nature. It’s perfect for every sort of getaway from London – some recharging ‘me time’ on your own, a romantic break for two or a memorable change of scenery with the whole family, including the dog!

Bredon View: An Escape Like No Other

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful bubble to relax in or a base camp to get out and explore the local area, Bredon View can provide it. With luxurious lodges set amid a mix of woodland, lawn, and meadowland alongside the River Avon, Bredon View has been newly developed in harmony with its environment and wildlife. Deer can be seen wandering the park by day, and you can fall asleep to the sound of owls in the trees.

The park’s name is well deserved, with outstanding views of the famous 1000-foot-high Bredon Hill from within the Estate, not to mention the rest of the rolling Worcestershire countryside in every direction. These views can be enjoyed as you stroll one of the walking paths within the park, over a chilled drink from the balcony of your lodge or even from the in-built hot tub.

If you want to unwind by indulging in outdoor sports, Bredon View boasts an exclusive 18-hole golf course, plus a pitch-and-putt for a more casual game. There are fishing spots on the River Avon for anglers and riverside walking paths for those who just want to enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Bredon View has its own onsite clubhouse – appropriately called The Retreat – offering a restaurant, bar, and lounge.

You really can have a great countryside getaway from London without leaving Bredon View, but that would be missing out on what Worcestershire has to offer.

Pershore: A Gem in the Heart of Worcestershire

Pershore is a quintessential English market town. Its picturesque setting and well-preserved architecture earned it the status of one of England’s ‘gem towns,’ making it a delightful destination for a relaxing getaway from London.

Pershore Abbey

The centrepiece of the town is the magnificent Pershore Abbey, a stunning example of church architecture mixed across five centuries. Originally founded in the 7th century, the Abbey has a rich history that is evident in its intricate stonework and serene interior. Visitors can wander through the tranquil grounds, soak in the history, and marvel at the impressive Norman architecture.

Riverside Walks

For those who appreciate nature, the riverside walks along the Avon provide a peaceful escape. The gentle flow of the river, combined with the lush greenery, creates a perfect setting for a leisurely stroll or a picnic. The Pershore Bridges Circular Walk is a popular route, offering beautiful views of the countryside, the medieval Pershore Bridge, and the town itself.

Pershore Plum Festival

If you visit during late summer, the Pershore Plum Festival on the August Bank Holiday is a must-see. Celebrating the town’s long association with plum growing, this festival features everything from food and drink stalls to live music, a parade and traditional Morris dancing, not to mention a lot of purple clothing and decoration. The vibrant atmosphere and delicious local produce make it an event not to be missed.

Worcestershire: A County of Diverse Attractions

Venturing beyond Pershore, Worcestershire has a variety of attractions that cater to different interests. From historic sites to scenic landscapes, there’s plenty to explore.

Worcester Cathedral

In the heart of the county lies Worcester, home to the majestic Worcester Cathedral. This stunning Gothic structure, dating back to 1084, is a treasure trove of history and art. Highlights include the tomb of King John, the crypt, and the chapter house. The cathedral’s tower offers panoramic views of the city and the surrounding countryside, a reward well worth the climb. Worcester can be reached by a train journey of less than 15 minutes from Pershore, or if you have your car with you, it’s a half-hour drive.

The Malvern Hills

For outdoor enthusiasts, the Malvern Hills provide a spectacular natural playground. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the hills offer numerous walking and cycling trails that cater to all fitness levels. The Worcestershire Beacon, the highest point in the Malverns, provides breathtaking views that stretch as far as the Black Mountains in Wales on a clear day.

Severn Valley Railway

Step back in time with a ride on the Severn Valley Railway, a heritage railway that runs between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth. The beautifully preserved steam trains and the scenic journey through the Severn Valley make it a delightful experience for all ages. Special events, such as themed weekends and dining experiences, add an extra layer of charm.

Broadway and the Cotswolds

A short drive from Pershore, the village of Broadway in the Cotswolds is often described as one of the most beautiful villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings, quaint shops, and inviting tea rooms make it a perfect day trip. The surrounding Cotswolds offer endless opportunities for exploring charming villages, historic houses, and stunning countryside.

Conclusion

Pershore and Worcestershire provide a perfect escape from the fast-paced life of London. With their historic charm, natural beauty, and diverse attractions, these destinations offer a rejuvenating experience that caters to a wide range of interests. So, pack your bags and book a holiday at Bredon View to discover the tranquil and picturesque landscapes of Worcestershire – a getaway from London that promises relaxation and rejuvenation.
