Farm History

Swallowfields is the vision of husband-and-wife team, Ben and Denise, who are passionate about every square inch of the wildlife and countryside that surrounds their home.

Transforming Clarks Farm to create their Swallowfields vision has been a real labour of love for the couple, who purchased the property and the beautiful land that comes with it four years ago.

But despite being relatively new owners of Clarks Farm, they aren’t new to the property. It’s been in Denise’s family since 1926, when it belonged to her great grandparents, Ernest and Lizzie Wadley. It did leave the family and was turned into a holiday let for a brief spell, but now it’s back firmly where it belongs. And when you see it, we’re sure you’ll agree…

Our Passion

Swallowfields is born from a big love of nature, wildlife and the good old British countryside.

From the 3-acre wildflower orchard meadow and the flight of swallows that visit every year, to the serenade of birdsong, buzzing bees and sound of sheep in the nearby fields, Ben and Denise are passionate about their world, so much so, they want to share it with you.

So, come and be you, relax, have some fun and treat yourself to a stay at the ultimate nature spa retreat that’s tucked away in the heart of the glorious Worcestershire countryside.

Visit the Malverns


    Malvern has long been associated with healthy living, ever since it originated as a spa town. Many benefits have been linked to its spring water, as well as people. Charles Darwin, Queen Victoria and Florence Nightingale are all said to have enjoyed its therapeutic qualities.

    It’s a legacy that’s lived right on to this day and one we whole-heartedly embrace. Not only are we fortunate to be nestled at the bottom of the Malvern Hills, we live and breathe nature and its many benefits.

    There’s no pounding the treadmill at Swallowfields, just beautiful walks with wonderful vistas provided by nature. Come visit our retreat and enhance your wellbeing in the best way for you, from reading a book and taking naps in your own hammock, to cooking on a camp fire and enjoying in-lodge treatments. Our world awaits you…

    Nothing beats a great family break! When you laugh so much your sides hurt and enjoy yourself so much, you’re thinking, talking (and giggling) about it for many weeks to come.

    Swallowfields is geared up for families. You’ll find that all of our spa lodges, which easily sleep six people, are located on a child-friendly site. There are also plenty of things for the whole family to see and do too.

    Take a wander in our lovely wildflower meadow, toast marshmallows on the camp fire, explore the Malvern Hills and beyond and check out our Adventure Camp and Nature Hideout! You can even bring the dog too!

    You just bring yourself, we’ll point you in the direction of the action! And there’s lots of it!

    Maybe you want to challenge yourself and try something different, like kayaking or caving, or perhaps you want to practice your favourite hobby, such as climbing, mountain biking or hiking?

    There are lots of things to do all around Swallowfields and, when you’re back at your lodge, there’s even more to keep you occupied, including getting your temperature rising in your own sauna and then leaping into the outdoor bucket drench. We feel a challenge coming on!
