- Peaceful and friendly park in the heart of the Fens
- Dog-friendly with a huge dog walking field
- Play area and kids' bar area with games
We’re trying to think who Orchard View Caravan & Camping Park would be most perfect for, but we suspect we’ll run out of space.
For those who like the sound of silence: this is a serene and peaceful park away from noisy A-roads. Scenic sorts: the park is in the heart of the fens, with waterways to explore nearby.
Foodie types: the Fenland villages have all sorts of tasty treats to try – fresh farm produce, rated restaurants, tea rooms, fresh fruit from roadside stalls and Lincolnshire sausages made in the market town Spalding.
Fido: the park is dog-friendly and has a huge (and safe) dog walking field with lots to sniff at. And the little saplings: there's plenty of technology-free space for younger campers to enjoy, with a wooden play area with, a sandpit, swings and a slide. Kids are also welcome in the children's area of the bar with board games, puzzles and supervised use of the pool table.
It’s also one for those who like space and convenience as it’s on a six-acre level site, and for folk who like a bit of a personal touch: owners Ray and Maria are lauded for being two of the friendliest and most helpful campsite people around, as anyone who’s ever had trouble putting up their awning can testify. Maria is even known to sing a little during the free of charge (for residents) evening entertainment if you ask nicely.
Amenities here are bang up-to-date, such as the recently built shower block with free hot showers. There’s a shop just three miles away at Gedney Hill and you’ll find info galore on what to do in the local area in the tourist information cabin and in the bar – or you could just ask Ray and Maria what they recommend - they’ll be happy to help.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

On the A47 from Peterborough to King's Lynn, take a left at the first roundabout after passing Thorney and the Thorney golf course, you should now be on the B1167, signposted Gedney Hill.
Continue on the B1167 past the golf course, follow a bend to the right and continue with the river on the right for 1.5 miles. Pass the old station house on the left, and at the T-junction turn right onto the B1166 (signposted Wisbech, Parson Drove and Sutton St Edmund). Follow this road for two miles through Throckenholt and take the third left onto Broadgate (caravan sign at the junction). The park is after 3/4 of a mile on the right.
From the north turn off the A17 into Holbeach, go straight at the traffic lights, driving 2.5 miles to Holbeach St. Johns, then turn left at The Plough. After about one mile, turn right at the crossroads into Broadgate. Then drive 2.5 miles through the village and we are one mile on the left.
You’ll need to be active to work off all those Lincolnshire sausages, so take to the unexplored fens on Orchard View’s doorstep for cycling, riverside rambling and horse-riding; aim for the skies with some clay pigeon shooting or get swinging at one of the five local golf courses.
If you’re still a bit full up, some birdwatching or fishing for carp at the nearby lakes should be a more gentle way to spend the day.
Strolling around the shops is also a less strenuous way to work off the calories: Spalding has bargains galore in the Springfield Shopping Outlet and the Springfield Festival Gardens to relax in and gloat over your purchases after a morning spent ringing the tills.
If you're after further entertainment? Then whisk yourself off to Peterborough for shopping, theatre, cinema, sports and swimming, and walks around the parks and river. Then back to Orchard View for a well-earned spot of rest we say...
The market town of Boston is also recommended for savvy shoppers, and if you’re feeling a bit guilty about maxing out the credit cards (we hear this happens to some people occasionally), you can soothe your conscience by taking in historical Boston before loading yourself down with shopping bags: try the Boston Guild Hall and the museum at the Maud Foster Tower Windmill, or move along to Crowland to see the fourteenth century three-sided bridge and the medieval Crowland Abbey.
Thorney Abbey (about a 20-minute drive from the site) and the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre (just over an hour’s drive north) will give history-loving types plenty more to get stuck in to as well.
There’s also the historic port of King’s Lynn, the castle and museums of Georgian town Wisbech and the stone town of Stamford all within easy exploring reach.
A scenic drive will take you to the towns of Hunstanton and Sandringham, but you can’t come to this part of Lincolnshire without also seeing seaside town Skeggy. It’s not just the seaside, the donkey rides and the funfair: the Natureland Seal Sanctuary at Skegness too – and has tarantulas – and the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve is also well worth a look. And if you've got a taste for sea views, the north Norfolk coast is a short drive away.
Once the kids have recovered from their hair-raising tarantula experience, soothe them with a trip to Fantasy Island up the coast at Ingoldmells. Where, coincidentally enough, there’ll be a chance to go shopping again: with hundreds of stalls, the Eastgate Market is the biggest indoor seven day market in Europe...
