Your own Essex holiday home

Static caravans for sale

The Orchards Holiday Village itself is a bit different to our other parks - being long and thin in shape means that all of our static caravans are just a short distance from the water. We've got pre-owned static caravans starting from £16,995 – and we can offer help with finance. You're not just buying a holiday home down here in Essex – you're also investing in our exclusive owners' lifestyle. You can enjoy all your favourite Haven facilities, activities and entertainment, as well as the exclusive Owners' Lounge, owners' gym and exclusive owners' parties and clubs.
