The Orchards
An Essex holiday park in an idyllic setting


Our park has all the facilities of our leisurely parks - and lots more. Sports court, golf, bowling green - Take your pick!
Save up to 25%
Lakes, mud flats, tinkling rivers – we’re surrounded by splashy sounds in Essex. And because our park is long and thin, everything is near the water. You can walk down from the sea wall to a sand and pebble beach. Or head to a favourite spot with your book. And if you love to indulge? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We have a restaurant and takeaway. So tuck in!

Essex – great weather, top resorts

Essex has oodles of charm and history. We love the Victorian resort of Clacton-on-Sea. Or you might prefer to head inland and wander round the wild Beth Chatto gardens. But if you want to make yourself popular with the kids, take them to Colchester Zoo - just watch them roar with delight!
