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, we think?

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?).

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 children 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 loo block with free hot water, free use of hairdryers and music piped through as guests lather up – we like.

    Great welcome from host who remembered us from robin hood's retreat last year, spotless toilets/showers, neat tidy site very well kept ground level and firm but not too hard to peg tent on, plenty to do and see within easy travel of site, shop on site for basics, the owners run two very nice sites it's a credit to them, we prefer this site as the electric is included in the price (robin hood's retreat it's extra but not expensive) we will return to this site when we are in the area again the WiFi/phone signal is great from this location
    Thank you for a great 4 nights !

    Disliked: 

    The only negative thing about this site ( we have tent so not issue for caravans)
    Depending on the wind direction there is some noise from the railway track a couple of fields away but not enough to deter us from re-visting or recommending to others, and when wind is in the west or southwest a small amount of distant background noise from the A1 but again not enough to put us off in any way, these are not dislikes but comments to make others aware a little background sound is to be expected but not enough to disturb campers

    I love this little park. Its tucked away in a quiet rural location, with plenty for the kids to do (wildlife walk, play equipment, football pitch) and the amenities are great and are exactly as clean as you would want at any campsite.

Directions

From the A1 southbound exit signed Tuxford, curve round to the left and when you reach the T-junction, turn right then continue as above.

The campsite is 1.5 miles from buses in Tuxford, 8 miles from Retford station and 12 miles from Newark station.

Local attractions

The Robin Hood land of Sherwood Forest is about 10–15 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. Or have an historic day out after Sherwood Forest with a roam around Nottinghamshire's old buildings, such as Rufford Abbey and its country estate or the preserved 1920s home Mr Straw's House in Worksop.

Must see

  • Sherwood Forest Country Park (8.4 miles)
  • Lincoln Castle (13.6 miles)
