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.

Excellent site with modern, clean facilities and good pitch sizes 03/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Charlotte W. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric mixed touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The swimming pool, the toilet and laundry facilities. The pitch size was very good and my request to be close to the dog walk was fulfilled.

    Disliked: 

    The children were unable to ride their bikes on the site and this was not made clear when we booked. The wifi was not worth paying for as it wasn't strong enough to stream films/Netflix etc.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the things you liked about our park.

We would like to take this opportunity to address your dislikes. On the Pitchup.com website each park has a header of Site Info and within the header there are terms & conditions and it clearly states "General
Bicycles, scooters, skateboards, roller-skates, blades are not permitted".

We do advise guests that our Wifi isn't good enough for streaming before they purchase it.

We do hope that we will see you again in the future.

    Disliked: 

    Would have bene nice if the door to either games room or table tennis was unlocked until 10pm
    Would have liked to have perhaps 30 mins of free Wi-Fi a day

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind comments.

We usually operate a booking system for the games rooms as we are unable to leave them unlocked as we have found that bored children will cause some mischief !!

Our Wifi is available throughout the park and not just at a "Hotspot" which is why we charge for it.

    The showers were really nice and the underfloor heating made it! Decent takeaway on site.

    Disliked: 

    The shop could have stocked a lot more.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely comments.

We do our best to provide the basics in our shop, it is quite a large building and can sometimes look a little empty. We have tried stocking more fresh and local produce but with many guests having Tesco, Sainsburys etc follow them down the drive on their arrival we end up throwing too much stock away.

    Pool, facilities were great, lots of sinks and showers. Views were beautiful and other people staying nearby nice and quiet after 10:30. The recreational ground st the bottom was good too and all the staff we came across were really friendly.

    Disliked: 

    A couple of toilets seemed to get blocked a couple of times which was a bit gross but otherwise all good 😊

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review.

We don't provide 24 hours toilet attendants so I do hope that any problems you encountered or reported to the Reception were dealt with swiftly.

    Disliked: 

    Cramped touring pitches restricting privacy
    Fees for Wifi use e.g. Premier Inns have 2 tier system

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review our Park.

We're sorry that you felt the pitches were cramped, all pitches are marked out and it guests keep to the pitching requirements this shouldn't happen. If you stay with us again be sure to let the Reception Team know about anything that you are not happy with.

With regards to the Wifi, we are a small business trying to provide a service. We could just provide a "Hotspot" for all guest to use but our wifi is available throughout the park. We cannot compete with a huge company like Premier Inn.

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.
