Pitching field

General

  • Set in a mature fruit orchard, with orchard walks
  • Six miles from Sundown Adventureland theme park for under-10s
  • Newly refurbished amenities block with heating, hot water and music

What a cleverly laid out site is Orchard Park Touring Caravan and Camping, on the edge of the town of Tuxford in Nottinghamshire. For one, it's all spaciously set out in a mature orchard of pear, plum and apple trees – picnics under the boughs, just possibly?

For two, there's an added area at the end of the park that's been left to grow naturally for years, which is now a flower-laden nature walk where butterflies and birds flutter (picnic, anyone?).

And for three and four – and for the kids – a play trail has been set aside at the edge of the orchard for small explorers, and carved wooden animals and other surprises to find are dotted around the orchard itself. It all sounds like a most fruitful way to spend a holiday…

The friendly team has also provided laundry facilities, a freezer for ice packs, and a spacious amenities room for disabled guests, which can be used by parents with young kids if needed. A shop at reception provides the essentials including eggs, milk, ice cream and sweets.

And although all is serenely countrylike and sheltered on site, Orchard Park is only a mile and a half from the A1 and access to day trips all over Nottinghamshire and its surrounds.

Not sure where to go or what to see? Visit the park information hut – another nifty little idea – where you'll find leaflets and maps on what to see and do locally, or ask the Orchard Park team for their many knowledgeable recommendations.

The very well-kept amenities include a centrally heated shower and toilet block with free hot water, free use of hairdryers and music piped through as guests lather up – you'll surely very much like that too.

A last minute decison to head away for the weekend …19/10/2020

    A last minute decison to head away for the weekend proved really positive! A quiet campsite within easy reach of the A1, but far enough away to hardly hear it at night.
    Met with a warm welcome and guided to our pitch within an 'adult only field'.
    Due to Covid we chose to use our on board facilities but the site ones looked fine and the elsan point was spotless, so hopefully that was a good indicator for the internal areas.
    The surrounding country road was very quite and formed part of Cycleroute 647 - 15 flat miles to Lincoln or 11 miles to Clumber Park. The route to Lincoln took in the Fledborough Viaduct ( about 6 miles from the site ) across the River Trent - an ideal route fro novices and / or children. A pub meal and visit to the Wisby Nature Reserve was also not too far.
    Clumber Park, Thorseby Hall and Doddington Hall within a short drive / cycle!

    Excellent site, very clearly marked, spotlessly clean in all areas. Unfortunately due to Covid the coffee shop was closed, we will have to try it next time.

    Everyone was very friendly , the disabled facility was a real bonus and again kept clean at all times.

    Would definitely recommend to anyone either with Motorhome or Caravan. Very easy to tour around the Lincolnshire countryside.

    The dog walk area needs to be improved as was very small and narrow therefore couldn’t keep distance from other users. told to get dog on lead even when coming out of motorhome with lead in hand ready to attach to dog, would say this isn’t a dog friendly site. Pitches were very close together.

Local attractions

The Robin Hood land of Sherwood Forest is 10 to 15 minutes' drive away, while kids and grownups can have a giddy good time swinging among the trees at the Sherwood Pines Go Ape.

If you have under-10s in the party, brighten their day with a visit to Sundown Adventureland at Retford, a theme park with Angry Birds, pirates and a smugglers' cove among its many rides and play areas.

The National Trust's Clumber Park will also keep small holidaymakers out of mischief for many (many) hours among its 3800 acres of lake, parkland, gardens and woodland; cycle hire is available to tackle some of the 20 miles of bike routes, and there's a secondhand bookshop for those who'd rather relax with a book by the water.

To take a trip around the region's urban areas, Newark is about 12 miles away and Lincoln within half an hour's drive.

  • Lincoln Castle (13.6 miles)
