General

  • On the banks of the River Severn, two miles from Worcester city centre
  • Close to the M5, 15 minutes' drive from the Malvern Hills
  • Fishing on site; riverside walk from site to city centre

City strolls or countryside wanders – which one might you fancy while on your Worcestershire break? If the answer is ‘a bit of both, actually’ then you’ll likely find Ketch Caravan Park a most convenient spot indeed.

This peaceful and family-friendly park is on the banks of the River Severn, around two miles from Worcester city centre. A riverside footpath runs from the site to the city’s shops and attractions; alternatively you can drive it in five minutes or so.

As well as providing pleasant strolls into town, the river also supplies a pretty backdrop for the site, with the Malvern Hills visible in the distance (another good place for lovely long stroll, of course). Guests can go fishing in the river directly from the site too.

Getting in, out and around to local attractions is very straightforward from here: the park is handily placed close to the A4440 and only a few minutes’ drive from the M5. That makes it both a nifty stopover point on a longer motorway journey and a good place to settle for rural rambles (with a dog, if you’ve got one you’d like to bring along on holiday) and days out visiting the likes of Tewkesbury, Snowshill Manor and Evesham.

Barbecues are allowed on site, and there’s a rather handy supermarket just outside the site for supplies if you don’t fancy the trip to town for dinner. As for the site’s own facilities, they include a toilet and shower block along with chemical disposal for touring guests.

    Site location. Level pitches with good view over river.

    Disliked: 

    Being accosted by man when calling at reception. Sign said open, so knocked and entered to be greated by an angry man prepared to offer violence. Not pleasant.
    The site is currently preparing for a comprehensive refurbishment So the site is like a waste land in places.
    May visit again once refurbished

Tired site with uncertain future09/26/2023

  • Liked: 

    Great location by the river Severn, riverside walk into Worcester. Aldi, B&M, Toby Carvery and a Harvester all within 100 metres of the site entrance.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet block a bit "tired", reasonably clean but quite a lot of cobwebs and minor maintenance issues that weren't being addressed. Grass on the pitches was too long. The site has a large area for mobile homes behind the touring pitches, most of these were vacated, but with debris from the associated decking and block supports scattered around, the mobile homes still there looked, in the main, abandoned, so the whole site had an air of neglect about it. It turns out that the site owners are evicting all the mobile home owners and requiring them to move their mobile homes by the end of November. There is clearly something going on at this site, it's future is unclear. If it does re-open next year then I would be very wary of re-visiting unless I was assured the site and facilities were in good order.

    Stayed here second week in September, lovely location right by the River,pitches were good,nice walk into Worcester along the river,friendly lady on arrival with info,the bad bits,the owners of the static vans were told they have to be off site by the end of October because the site is having a major overhaul so we was told so where the statics have been moved there is rubble lying around which makes that part of the site look really untidy, the amenitiey building is a bit dated but functional, lots of hot water for a 20p shower .Apparently the site will be closed for quite a while for the work that will be going on,will look forward to seeing it when it's finished.

    Close to city, quiet at night.

    Disliked: 

    Very poor facilities, dog mess left on pitches, traveller group who appeared to be living permanently on the site and for whom the normal rules did not appear to apply: multiple vehicles on pitches, cars and vans constantly coming and going throughout the day and evening, litter strewn everywhere.
    The site is closing soon and the managers have clearly given up, and they won't care about this review.

Local attractions

Presumably you’ll want to start in Worcester – and that’s a good choice, whether you amble along the riverbank or take the five-minute drive. Once you’re in the city centre, stop by at the cathedral and the Tudor House Museum for a sense of the area’s history and admire the pretty pieces on display at the Museum of Royal Worcester.

There’s more history to be explored at places like the Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings (20 minutes’ drive), where you can see a collection of restored and rebuilt buildings of various kinds, and the smart Eastnor Castle (half an hour) and Snowshill Manor and Gardens (40 minutes). Meanwhile, music buffs can follow the Elgar Route to take in some of the scenery that inspired the composer and see some of the places where he lived and worked.

For some outdoor time, explore the grounds of Spetchley Park Gardens (five minutes), which has been in the same family for over 400 years, or head to the highest point in the Malvern Hills at Worcestershire Beacon (20 minutes).

Must see
