Date of Visit: July 2023 Unit:  Motorhome
Nights stayed: 4 Travelling as:  Mature couple
Reviewer: Cazzaw 3 reviews from this member

 How disappointing. The site is very run down, uncared for and looking like a building site where some caravans have been unceremoniously removed leaving rubbish behind.

It used to be such a nice uncommercialised site.

Good location but site has seen better days.

Showers need updating but I canít see this happening after reading about it in the local paper.

 We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this site was. Itís near a few main roads so some noise was expected but it wasnít too bad.

The shower/toilet block although quite dated was clean and the shower was very hot. You do need 20p for the showers.

We walked along the river into the centre of Worcester and caught the bus back. Aldi and B&M are within walking distance of the site.

We had a couple of excellent meals in the Toby Carvery near the site and thereís a nice Harvester in the other direction, again within walking distance.

We would return to this site.

 Just spent 5 days at the Ketch visiting family and was amazed how much Dawn and Rob have done in the year they have been there

It had been let go by the previous wardens but they have worked their socks off upgrading various amenities and clearing the banks back to its former glory

Well done them. keep it up

Reviewer: E Babbage 2 reviews from this member

 Arrived on site to be greeted by Donna who had no record of us arriving. All ok allocated pitch1.

Pitch nice and level but hook up electric points disgusting all dirty and cobwebs.

On checking out toilet and shower block was saddened to say these were not very clean. Lots of debris in shower 3 and was like that for 2 days empty soap dispenser no mop to clean shower cubicle apart from a dirty old mop outside toilet block (not fit for purpose).

Also please be very careful if you decide to do the canal walk from site to Worcester it's NOT SAFE its very overgrown and muddy we ended up doubling back and walking through a large housing estate. Took us 1hr 15mins. Got bus back.

All in all it was an OK stop over for price but seriously needs a good overhaul.

Chemical waste hose water gun broken and lying on ground not even connected.

Site in need of an update 😫.

Reviewer: Babyfox 2 reviews from this member

 The campsite is located along the edge of a river which is a nice location with restaurants and shops at close proximity.

The entrance to the site is not impressive though with litter outside and inside the gates.

The wardens house is quite a scruffy looking building with untidy empty pots everywhere. For the duration of our stay it had a closed sign on the door and we saw people frequently knocking on the door for attention. We donít know why this was but asking around it seems it is common practice.

This site could be beautiful with a bit of care and attention to detail. For example the hook up electric boxes are filthy, plant pots around the area are broken and contain weeds and areas which look like at one time weíre landscaped are just big weed beds. It appears to be a very run down site which is a great shame.

Having said that our few days break were enjoyed.

 Fantastic welcome from Donna, what a gem !

We were given so much information about the area and how to get into Worcester.

Our pitch was huge with a beautiful river view.

Donna even gave the children a city elephant finding map which kept them

Amused for 2 days and very tired at the end of the day ! Thanks Donna !

Facilities were cleaned every day.

We will be back !

 The Ketch is a pleasant and peaceful site next to the river Severn. It is friendly and Donna and Rob are extremely helpful.

However sadly some things let the site down. Around the front gate there is a lot of litter and this is also the case down the slope to the toilet block. The verges here are very unkempt and could do with some landscaping or at least tidying up.

The ball on the gate post is about to fall off giving the approach to the site a scruffy uncared for look. Asking around it appears there is only one couple employed here so maybe it would be a good idea to employ more people as it is a lot of work for one couple.

It is a great shame as this site could be beautiful.

 Easy site to find and very secure with locked gates.

Mainly statics on the site but tourers are on flat grass by the riverside so a beautiful setting.

We walked into Worcester, about 40 minutes alongside the river but a very nice walk. There are buses but we didnít bother.

A peaceful stay with no problems.

Facilities were open but we didnít use them so canít comment but the rest of the site was spotless.

 A beautiful riverside site when you get there! the entrance is not obvious and the roadworks didn't help. Grass only pitches. It seems far from the traffic on the main road. However, a very short walk takes you to an Aldi and B&M. A Harvester and a Toby are within short walking distance. The 32 bus is half hourly into Worcester. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good powerful showers. We had a good time.

MINOR NIGGLES -

1. Having to put 20p in a slot for a shower is a bit outdated

2. Accepting that there is a case for code access on the entrance, do we really need a second barrier outside reception?

3. The statics are on a slope behind the touring pitches. If the occupants are sitting on their decking they are just a few inches from your roof and roof vents. You do not always want to hear every word of their conversations!

That being said - a delightful stay and a bargain at £18 pn
