The Orchards
Holiday Village


Our park has all the facilities of our leisurely parks - and lots more. Sports court, golf, bowling green - Take your pick!

Take life at a relaxed pace as you enjoy a break beside the lakes and rivers of our Essex park

The Orchards Holiday Village is traditional seaside Essex at its very best. You can expect everything that you love most from a coastal holiday, along with lots of great things to do on our park, such as playing a round on our 9-hole golf course or relaxing beside our two Specimen fishing lakes. Being a Haven holiday park, we also have a brilliant swimming pool for the whole family to enjoy; in fact, at The Orchards we actually have two – choose from our heated indoor and outdoor pools! This park is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – giving you a much deserved break and the perfect place to make some special holiday memories.

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!
