The purpose of this Accessibility Statement is to give an accurate description of the facilities at Lickhill Manor Caravan Park, bearing in mind people have various abilities and/or limitations.
General - Lickhill Manor Caravan Park is situated on the outskirts of Stourport-on-Severn, alongside the River Severn, some 1.25 undulating miles by road from the town centre, or 15 minutes level walk along the riverbank. The majority of terrain is flat and even. The park grounds extend to 64 acres which are well landscaped with thousands of trees and shrubs. The park owns nearly ¾ of a mile of riverbank which is available for walking, picnics, fishing and boat mooring.
Roads - Most roads on Lickhill Manor Caravan Park are tarmacked, therefore can be easily seen, or be detected by the partially sighted by 'tapping'. The roads do not have kerbs; the tarmac edges run in to the grassed areas with some minor differences in height. There are speed bumps on the roads which are clearly marked with yellow triangles. The speed limit on the park is 8 mph.
Telephone and Internet - Lickhill Manor Caravan Park is in an area of reasonable mobile phone and Wifi coverage. Should the emergency services need to be contacted, the Park Managers live by the Reception and wardens live by the Booking Offices; a hands-free phone can be provided by the Park Managers for emergency calls, e.g. to contact a relative or Doctor etc.
Free Wi-Fi is provided to all our touring and camping guests.
Landline telephone and internet connection can be organised by individual holiday home owners with the consent of the park Head Office.
Holiday Homes - New and preowned holiday homes are for sale, these are available for the recreational use of owners and immediate family/friends. Holiday homes cannot be used for rental or hire purposes. Holiday home entrances are accessible by between 1 to 6 steps, dependent on the individual pitch. If a holiday home owner assesses that they require bespoke access arrangements, e.g. a ramp, then they should submit plans to our Head Office for authorisation. All holiday homes are connected to mains electricity, water, drainage and LPG.
Touring Field and Riverside - Pitches cater for touring caravans, trailer tents, motorhomes and tents. The Touring Field is level ground with hardstanding pitches offering water, electricity, drainage and Wifi; plus 3 tarmac pitches for very large motorhomes. Grass pitches for tents (also caravans and motorhomes) are available with electricity and Wifi, plus some with water taps. Some of our hard-standing pitches are more suitable for wheelchair use, as these are close to the washrooms via tarmac access [please enquire and book specifically]. There are also grass pitches close to the washrooms suitable for less ambulant users. Most pitches have electricity, car parking is available on all pitches. From October to March we have an additional 54 serviced gravel hard-standings [used by Seasonal Tourers for April - September]. On Riverside, the pitches are level grass and open, with plenty of space, 64 of the pitches have electric hook up and Wifi.
