Heated outdoor pool, open late May to early September

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 and a laundry and washing-up area, 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, set 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.

    Spotlessly clean with excellent facilities.
    All you could want : large shower block with 24 hour hot water, which includes a ladies’ vanity area with hairdryers; a large facilities block with plenty of washing up stations, washing machines, tumble driers, ironing boards and irons. Even a drying room!
    A shop, takeaway and plenty for kids - 2 swimming pools (one inside and one outside) recreation area, pool table and table tennis.
    Pitches were large and with electricity. Plenty of water stations and refuse spots.
    Very well thought out.
    Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
    We would definitely consider coming back here with our grandchildren.

    We stayed at the orchards for 3 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. There was a well stocked shop onsite , which had all of the basic essentials. There was also a nice onsite take away. The campsite had some fantastic views. We had our Labrador with us and there were specific areas for the dogs to walk , as well as nearby footpaths. All of the facilities were well maintained and clean. In these difficult times everything was being done to keep all campers safe.

    The staff and site layout are perfect, good base for exploring the island!
    The site and facilities are modern, well kept and spotlessly clean. The shop had everything we needed and the Take Away food was delicious.
    Due to the current circumstances, unfortunately, the pools, and games rooms were closed to meet the Covid guidelines, leaving very little to do on site. However, it was the relaxing break we needed - thank you!

    Friendly staff. Easy access to water. Good location near Yarmouth. Takeaway facility.Excellent showers and toilet facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Bit close to each other and site sloped a little. Shop had little fresh food in it but it was end of season. Could have done with maps and info in reception. Would have expected there to be a request for masks to be worn in the toilet block.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely comments, I will pass them on to the staff.

Providing we are given the correct dimensions by our guests ( and they pitch correctly) there shouldn't be a problem with spacing. Perhaps if you decided to stay again and booked direct you can request a more level pitch.

With the increasing amount of guests booking home delivery from Tesco etc it makes it very hard for our shop to compete. We often find that we have to reduce or throw away fresh produce which is why we stock very litttle.

The staff at reception are more than happy to help with any information regarding touring attractions, unfortunately we didn't have any delivery of maps and guest books this season.

We are working with the government guidelines regarding mask wearing and until it is compulsory we wouldn't ask our guests to wear them in the toilet block environment. We have put up signs asking that only one guest uses the vanity room or hand washing area at a time and the rest of the time they are in an individual cubicle for toilets and showers. It's really no different to a public toilet where mask wearing isn't compulsory.

We do hope we ill have the opportunity to welcome you back to our park.

Local attractions

The Orchards Holiday Park is in 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 hikes 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 opportunities.

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)
