The purpose of this Accessibility Statement is to give an accurate description of the facilities at Lickhill Manor Caravan Park, bearing in mind people with various abilities and/or disabilities.
General - Lickhill Manor Caravan Park is situated on the outskirts of Stourport-on-Severn, alongside the River Severn, some 1.25 miles by road from the town centre, or 15 minutes walk along the riverbank. The majority terrain of the park is flat and even. The park grounds extend to 64 acres which are well landscaped with thousands of trees and shrubs. The park owns over half a mile of riverbank which is available for picnics, fishing and boat mooring.
Roads - All roads on Lickhill Manor Caravan Park are tarmacced, 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 minor differences in height. There are speed bumps on the roads which are clearly marked with yellow triangles. The speed limit on the park roads is 8 mph.
Telephones - Lickhill Manor Caravan Park is in an area of good mobile phone coverage. The Park Managers live by the Reception and the Assistant Managers live by the Booking Office, should the emergency services need to be contacted. 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.
Holiday Homes - We sell new and preowned holiday homes that are available for use by owners and immediate family/friends. Holiday homes are not available for rental, therefore are adapted to meet the accessibility requirements of the individual holiday home owners. All holiday homes are connected to mains electricity, water, drainage and gas.
Touring/Camping Park Layout - All pitches cater for touring caravans, trailer tents, motorhomes and tents. On the touring field: super pitches are available with water, electricity and drainage, plus 3 tarmac pitches for very large motorhomes. Pitches are level with the majority predominantly grass, plus 20 gravel hard-standing bases; although from October to March we have an additional 54 serviced gravel hard-standings [used by Seasonal Tourers for April - September]. There are a few hard-standing bases suitable for wheelchair use, these are close to the washrooms via tarmac access, also there are grass pitches close to the washrooms suitable for reasonably ambulant users - all pitches have electricity. There is car parking space available on all pitches. On the Riverside Field, all pitches are level grass and open, with plenty of space; 64 pitches have electric hook ups.
Washrooms - The touring field washrooms are accessed via a 1 in 12 gradient ramp through an extra wide door. There is a washroom suitable for disabled use which has a wheelchair accessible shower, with seat and handrails, the floor has plenty of turning space, There is a low level hand basin with lever taps, the WC has handrails and a pull cord alarm. There is a low level work surface with hair dryer. The Riverside Field washrooms are accessed by 3 steps. Both washrooms are heated during cold weather.

The second play area is on our Riverside Field, this facility is at ground level and again has a wood chip safety surface. Both the Touring Field and the Riverside Field have Pot & Crockery wash-ups with 4 deep sinks each. There are 3 central collection facilities for refuse and recycling of waste. The chemical waste disposal sluice is accessed via a 1 in 12 gradient ramp. The Reception and Booking Office are accessible via ramp-ways. Tourist Information is available at both offices. Car parking is available immediately outside Reception (disabled parking space) and Booking Office.

There is a riverside meadow available for dog exercise which can be accessed via gates and a path through the Riverside Field. The path takes users past our Animal Sanctuary, with chickens, ducks and goats.
