A Popular Haven Park with Entertainment, Swimming Pools and Fishing Lakes

The Orchards Holiday Village is situated in an idyllic setting in the beautiful county of Essex. Because the park is long and thin, everything is near the water! You can walk down from the sea wall to a sand and pebble beach. Or maybe head to a favourite spot with your book next to the beautiful lakes on the site.

For those looking for a day out, a short drive will take you to the seaside town of Clacton, with many attractions on offer. The town has a bounty of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a meal and a drink with friends and family. The iconic Clacton Pier has entertainment, amusements and of course the thrilling fair ground rides giving an amazing view of the coastline.

The park has plenty to keep you busy, with a stunning 9-hole golf course, bowling green, multi sports court, bungee trampolines, and the heated indoor and outdoor pools. For the fishermen amongst you, the coarse fishing lake is bound to prove to be a hit. For those seeking fun inside, there is a FunWorks amusement arcade, and entertainment for adults and children alike.

Finding food to suit any taste on site is a joy, with four food and drink venues to choose from, including a bar, restaurant and takeaway.

The Orchards Holiday Village really is a beautiful park, which will bring joy to all who stay there.
