Own a holiday home
On the Essex sunshine coast
This hidden gem stretches out along a snarl of seawater creeks on the rural Essex coast. You'll find winding streams, sand flats, and a coastal walk running alongside the reed beds. Only 90 minutes from London, it's perfect for slipping away to again and again, to escape the everyday grind of the city. If you're thinking about caravans for sale in Clacton, this park is pretty close. And pretty packed with fun for everyone. Our smashing heated indoor pool hosts pool parties, with inflatables, floats and top tunes, and a paddling pool for your little ones. Outdoors, you'll find 2 lakes for coarse fishing, a 9-hole golf course, archery, fencing, tennis and the fab FunWorks amusements arcade – enough to keep everyone occupied all day.
For days out, nearby Clacton-on-Sea's a traditional bucket-and-spade resort with its own Victorian pleasure pier. Pre-owned static caravan prices start from £16,995 and we can offer help with finance. Come back again and again, to unwind in a slow-paced friendly neighbourhood.

We're proud to say that our parks have achieved NCC Approved status which is a scheme launched by The National Caravan Council to make sure we give the highest quality of service and treatment to you, our guests.
The key benefits of choosing to buy from an NCC Approved park are that we will:
Nothing beats returning to a place you know really well. Somewhere you can bring friends and family, or just escape to on your own. Owning your own static caravan at The Orchards in Essex gives you all this warmth and familiarity – and you can enjoy it time and time again.
There are so many great reasons to choose a holiday home at The Orchards. You'll feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but you're actually not too far from central London. Cut off from the rest of Essex by creeks and rivers, our park is long and thin. So all our holiday homes for sale are just a short distance from water. You're not just buying a holiday home down here in Essex – you're also investing in our exclusive owners' lifestyle which has lots of benefits.

The Orchards, owner since 2013
"It's so relaxing, great to walk our dog on the beach off her lead, could never do that in London. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the park is kept very clean. The entertainment is very good and we love the bingo, gym and spa. The owners discount is a big saving on the park. Best thing we ever did!"
