Why stay here ...

Martin and Dawn welcome you to their CL Site in Worcestershire. Set in the beautiful, quiet, country location just outside of the village of Ombersley. We are a 300 acre mixed farm growing predominantly Spring Barley, Hay and Haylage.

The pitches are large and benefit from being flat and level with good access. There are lots of things to do in and around the surrounding area. Fantastic, private farm walks running straight from the site. Fishing, golf and a pub with home brewery within a mile. Ombersley Village - This ancient village is packed with the best places to eat and drink and has a lovely tearoom.

Brilliant CL

The Old Orchard
Just spent 6 nights on this beautiful CL could not fault it in anyway. MST pitches have water on, a great choice of hard standing and grass pitches (Grass where closed this week due to recent wet weather) nice and secure but I could appreciate frustrations if you don’t know the padlock code. Owners greeted us with the code so no problem for us. Great walks from the site and lots of local places of interest, ideal for stopping off being only a couple of miles off the M5 or staying longer for a nice relaxing break. We will be back, thank you Dawn and Martin

Just perfect

The Old Orchard
We stayed at this peaceful site for the weekend just what we were looking for. Enjoying the beautiful views from the large grass service pitch ,the well kept border fields which our dog had plenty of room to stretch his legs . We also took around 45 minutes to walk to Ombersley and enjoying a pub lunch in The Kings Arms stopping off at The Cross Keys on our way back most enjoyable. We will definitely be returning everything we love.

Lovely relaxing stay

The Old Orchard
We have just spent eleven days here and could easily have stayed longer. The huge grass serviced pitches (there are also hard standings), coupled with the sheer size of the camping ground and the views ahead create a great sense of tranquillity. There are lovely wild floral hedges dotted around the fields, including one immediately in front of you. A great touch is that the margins of the fields have been left for you to walk which means it’s absolutely ideal for dogs, and the total area is so large that the owners have created a map for you to use. There is an excellent farm shop just outside the village of Ombersley - more or less the only reason we left the site during our stay.

Not a welcoming CL

The Old Orchard
I booked this CL by email in March for a stay at the end of June. Upon arrival I was confronted by a padlocked gate with no instructions for unlocking. Apparently the code for the padlock was in my confirmation email from the owner. Fortunately I had the email with me. The code stated was 0000. I tried this code but the lock did not open. I telephoned the owner but the call went straight to voicemail so I left a message asking them to call me back. I did not receive any callback. Fortunately someone already on the site realised that I was unable to gain access and came to help. Having shown my confirmation email to this person they kindly gave me the padlock code which was actually five digits and different numbers to those I had been given. On entering the site I realised that the CL was part of a much larger caravan site with hardstanding pitches separated by hedges. I had booked a hardstanding pitch but as the two on the CL were already occupied I used one of the pitches on the larger site. By doing so we lost the benefit of the views from the CL including a great sunset. There was no information immediately visible as to making payment or where the toilet dump and waste bins were located. Again a fellow camper provided the information. Both were located behind hedges through a gate in an overgrown hedge. The location was not signposted and the gate itself had no sign on it. Inside this small area were a well designed toilet dump, recycling & waste bins and a notice board! On the notice board was some useful information, particularly about paying. Payment was to be made by placing the requisite amount in a small black post box fixed to the wall surrounding the toilet dump & waste bins. How this was to be achieved in such a way as to inform the owner of the person making the payment was not stated and no envelopes were provided. Again my fellow camper came to my rescue and provided an envelope - thank you Ian. The evening wore on and no-one came to check if we had arrived, had found the facilities, etc. nor was my telephone call ever returned. This is a very pleasant site with good facilities but the arrival/welcome is non-existent. More information and clear signage is required if arrival/welcome is to be a DIY process. The location of the CL needs to be signposted and the owner needs to answer their phone or return calls when requested to do so. Information needs to be more thorough and should be displayed at the main gate rather than be hidden away as at present. I felt as if the owner did not really want us there and was only interested in the money to be made. This view was reinforced by a notice on the notice board advising users not to call at the owner’s house as “the dogs may be loose”! Altogether not a welcoming experience.
