Touring and Camping at The Orchards

The Orchards puts you in a quiet corner of the Essex coastline. Surrounded by bodies of water, the park is nestled across the creek from the quintessential English seaside village of Brightlingsea. You’ll experience a distinct maritime vibe here, with Mersea Island just across the water. There are 63 pitches in total, welcoming everything from tents to the fanciest of motorhomes, all located within touching distance of all the facilities on the park. Make sure you go for a walk along the sea wall, there is no better way to sample the area!

Dogs welcome
Room for Dogs

Well behaved dogs are welcome on our touring and camping parks for only £1 per dog, per night, with a maximum of two dogs per booking

The pier and long sand-filled beach combine to give you the ultimate trip to the English coast just a short drive away.
