Full of east coast promise
The Orchards Holiday Village is packed with brilliant things to do. It sits among seawater creeks, near the charmingly-named maritime town of Brightlingsea. Our fantastic heated indoor pool hosts pool parties, with inflatables, floats and top tunes, and a paddling pool for the little ones. Then there's archery and Junior Segways. Outdoors, you'll find 2 lakes for coarse fishing and a challenging (par 32) 9-hole golf course to take a swing at. To book activities at this park, you'll need to have an Activity Bundle.
Everything you could need
Play sharks in the pool, grab a bite to refuel, or teach Nan some party dances; we have everything you need for you to do as much (or as little) as you like.
Eat out on the park - there's a Mash and Barrel restaurant and the Ferry Boat Inn.
Just for owners: Owners' Lounge; owners' gym and spa facilities
