On the Essex sunshine coast

Static caravans for sale in Essex at The Orchards Holiday Village

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.

Eleanor Doris

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!"
