Newland is a village and civil parish on the north-eastern edge of Malvern Link, Worcestershire, England, on the A449 road. A church, the St Leonard Chapelry, in Newland is associated with the Beauchamp Community of retired Church of England priests.

The village lies on the edge of the 6.5 hectare Newland Common, which is protected by the Malvern Hills Conservators and is centred on the traditional English Swan Inn public house. Adjacent to the Swan is a cricket field run as part of Barnards Green Cricket Club. Both the Swan and the cricket field are owned by the Trustees of the Madresfield Estate - a large local landowner. There is no shop or post office in the village.

Alongside the Hereford to Worcester railway line to the north of the village is a former halt, with a signal box and level crossing. This is now a showman site of mobile homes where showpeople live and store their rides, amusements and trade equipment.
