Why stay here ...

Please Note: This site will be closed November 2021 - February 2022 for refurbishment. No bookings will be available during this closure.

Nick & the team at Droitwich Spa Marina look forward to welcoming you to their CL in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. The site is ideal for those travelling along the M5. It is only 2.8 miles from junction 5, on a dairy farm and next to a working marina.

We are close to the Droitwich Junction Canal and a short walk to the Worcs/Birmingham Canal. A canalside pub is a short stroll away. There are therefore many walks and cycle rides along the various towpaths – away from roads. Worcester City can be reached along the towpath (approx. 7 miles) and also Birmingham (approx. 22 miles).

Worcestershire has many attractions: The Severn Valley Railway, Malvern Hills, or West Midlands Safari Park, to name but a few, and are all a relatively short distance away. The National Trusts, Hanbury Hall, is only a mile away, with Croome Court another wonderful visit, located just outside Worcester.

The site has hardstanding’s with water points, electric hook ups and lighting on all the pitches, all included in the advertised price.

The Marina showers and toilet facilities are available to Caravaners, for an additional fee which is advertised. The marina shop and office is open 7 days a week 10 a.m. to 4p.m. All our staff are on hand to help with enquiries and general information. All bookings are made through the marina office. The shop offers essential supplies, Gas, Elsan Blue etc. Local literature, maps, brochures and pamphlets are available in the office.

Easy access to the CL site is alongside the Marina.

A bit tired

Droitwich Spa Marina
Constant motorway noise - hard standing pitches have been covered in cheap hardcore - no bins on site so you have to go to Marina reception - feels like a secondary source of income to the Marina and not a very competitive price for what you get - location is good but won’t be returning

Good CL but lost enthusiasm now

Droitwich Spa Marina
I have stayed twice and I do live local in Droitwich so use the site to set up the caravan for longer trips or an event at the Rugby ground where we can make a weekend of it with friends. The pitches are ok with hardstanding but on setting up a small awning on Pitch 1 it was far from level. (The hardstanding in places is broken Brick and other such material) Electric and Water is very close so no issue. On my first ever stay I arrived at 2pm and had to park up while waiting for a motorhome to depart after 3.30pm it turned out it was one of the Boaters MH and he could not be bothered to move it until he was ready. (This location is all about the boaters and this CL is tired and afterthought in my opinion) on the second stay is it was nice and peaceful and no issue. We did not pay for facilities but prices had gone up from £15 - £18 between out stays (reasonable value if you use your van for everything bathroom related) I was excited to see a "Work in progress" expansion of the CL (possibly making it a full fledged Campsite and not tired anymore) and I often drive up have a walk up to see how its going. Sadly the owner is very over zealous on people parking on his property (all of the marina) and gave me a bit of grief today as I walked up with our little dog and whilst this is not part of the review it should noted if visitors arrive you may be challenged. (There is a council Car Park at the entrance to approaching road) I will focus on other CL's around Droitwich for my pottering with the Caravan from now on but if you need a central location to Droitwich and surrounding areas and like canal walks the site a OK option. I wish them well with the new campsite looking at the work done it could be very nice.

Serviced pitches

Droitwich Spa Marina
Pleasant enough site on terraced gravelled pitches each with their own electric, water and drainage. Access alongside fenced marina with showers at £5 a time which we declined. Eagle pub a short walk down opposite towpath but we didn't visit. Office open for payment 10-4 daily.

Fabulous CL!

Droitwich Spa Marina
Highly recommended. Lovely walks direct from pitch - we explored across field, along farm drive, back along the towpath past lock flight to the marina - canalside pub en route for good food and drink. Brilliant for dog walking, anyone interested in canals, engineering heritage and countryside. Some motorway noise but not enough to disturb - and v v easy and quick access to and from M5. Site is beautifully maintained by lovely friendly team and made to feel v welcome. The best sort of CL. We look forward to coming back.

Fabulous stay!

Droitwich Spa Marina
It is unusual for me to write a review of a site. Usually if it’s a great site there are enough positive reviews. If there are negative reviews, we usually choose another site. However Droitwich Spa Marina was exactly where we wanted to be for a family reunion. Prior to the review posted on 28th June we decided we’d book it as the reviews weren’t too bad. First positive on booking, excellent communication and information about our pitch, how to access the site, etc. This excellent customer service, and I won’t apologise for repeating myself, continued for the full 7 nights we stayed on the CL. We were stuck in traffic, we phoned ahead to say we would be late arriving, after the office had closed. We arrived and Marina staff had stayed on to ensure we knew where to go. Rare in our experience! Site is basic, hardstandings are hardcore, any awning etc has to go on grass. Pillar is between two pitches with power for both pitches & a tap (most Club sites you have to walk quite a way for a tap!) Elsan point and grey waste are sited on the small CL so again, not far to go. General waste disposal/recycling is at the entrance to the Marina which is a pleasant walk or can be organised for when going out for the day. We had our pitch from 29th June to 6 July. On travelling we read the damning ‘smelliest site’ review of the previous day and began to wonder if we had done the right thing. On arrival there was a smell of cattle, the hot weather probably not helping, but it was just a rural smell. There is pastureland surrounding the CL and Marina and the cattle during our stay weren’t in the same area each day. With our admittedly limited knowledge of farming we believe muck spreading isn’t done on pastureland so if others had witnessed this, it was done away from the CL site. We really loved this site, tow path walks to Droitwich Spa (about a mile) we were recommended the Gardners Arms on the tow path in Droitwich, (almost opposite Waitrose) it’s a pub & eatery, an experience, do try it! Walking the other way on the tow path the Eagle & Sun, a fifteen minute walk, a good carvery, both of these pubs offer inside/outside space. Sorry this has been a long post but we we had such a lovely stay, in a great place, that we wanted to reassure those, not of a sensitive nature, that it’s definitely worth a try. We will certainly factor it into our future plans.
