General

  • Spectacular views and top-notch facilities
  • Relax in the garden conservatory or run amok with the kids
  • Shower and bathroom facilities with underfloor heating

'The best campsite we've ever stayed at' is just one of the excellent accolades piled upon the Isle of Wight's The Orchards Holiday Park, where guests feel in firm agreement with The Orchards' assessment of its facilities as 'top-notch'.

Said facilities include shower and wash basin cubicles, a ladies' vanity area, a family shower room and family bathroom, a baby changing room, wheelchair-accessible amenities, a laundry and washing-up area, and a walkers' drying room, all with underfloor heating.

Things are top-notch leisurewise too, with a heated outdoor pool open from late May to early September; an indoor pool open all season (both free), a poolside coffee shop, pool and ping pong tables; a recreation area, and a takeaway food bar. There are two play areas, one for under-fives and one for older kids, as well as a dog exercise area.

And the views, the location and the atmosphere here all regularly get top billing here as well: The Orchards is a relaxed and friendly park with an amicable and helpful team, placed near Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight's western rural side and coming with first-rate views (this is among the most scenic washing up you'll ever do).

Finally, if you want to take the hassle out of ferry bookings on your journey to and from the island, the Orchards team can help arrange your travel: just let them know after you book.

    Wanted a quiet clean campsite with hygienic shower facilities, and the orchards certainly exceeded our expectations. Will definitely stay again and recommend to others.

    Disliked: 

    The shop could have been better stocked for its size and wanted takeaway breakfast on a Wednesday and Thursday but this was only available weekends.

    The facilities and the staff

    Disliked: 

    The pitch itself was facing the water waste and was tricky to reverse into; that said I didn't raise the issue with the staff so didn't give them an opportunity to rectify.
    Wifi very patchy

awsome facilities 31/05/2017

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    the Orchad is a great campsite, facilities are so above the standards (i.e. lots of shower huge shower rooms) and well kept and very clean.
    The campsite is also in a great location, 1min walk away to the bus stops for Newport and Alum bay, perfect if you're travelling with a campervan lik we did and so too stressful to pack up everything away and drive around the island.
    We arrived late at night (later than expeced too, due to ferry's delays) but it was not an issue as the staff left a map and a note for us so we could set up even if reception was closed.
    I have also made a specific request on my booking to be as close as possible to the toilet facilities due to health issues and the staff have accomdate this request, for which I am really greatful for.
    Overall, I wish all campsites were like this one...so fancy! :)

    Disliked: 

    the only down point is taht the pitch wasn't really levelled, but still fine

Local attractions

The Orchards Holiday Park is on west Wight, the more quiet and rural part of the island, but you won't have far to drive to get to all the other islandy attractions (tis not a big place, the Isle of Wight). And even better news: The Orchards has discount deals arranged for guests with many of the local pubs and attractions.

Staying west, miles of pathways can be investigated from the park by foot or pedal (maps as well as details on the team's fave walks can be found at the park reception), as well as tramps along the coastline with wight pretty scenery and views of the Solent.

The sandy beaches of Brook and Compton are a short drive away, as is Newtown Creek, a National Trust nature reserve brimming with birds, butterflies and boat photo opps.

Also have a look at Chessell Pottery Barns, the Yarmouth outlet with gallery, activities, gift barn and café; or, for history, Calbourne Water Mill and Rural Museum, and the holiday home of Queen Victoria, Osborne House in East Cowes.

  • Isle of Wight Pearl (3.4 miles)
  • Fort Victoria Country Park (4.6 miles)
  • Carisbrooke Castle (4.7 miles)
