Orchard Park Touring Caravan and Camping: 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.

    Good location for attractions, toilets and site clean and maintained, pitch level and clear.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately because of the orchard, it attracts a lot of wasps from fallen fruit, perhaps putting traps near the pitches and clearing fruit weekly would help to keep levels down, couldn't enjoy sitting outside or opening windows. Perhaps needs clearer notices re ball games and noise levels, as a lot of kids still running round whole site at 10pm

    Well designed and equipped site. Friendly staff. Owner Mary, accomodating and helpful. Shop isn't always open but someone is only a quick phonecall away and they'll come over. Lovely, safe play area. Playarea is part of an orchard so lots of plants and creatures/insects to investigate. Couldn't fault the stay at all.

    Well maintained and clean site. Very hospitable owners with their ears to the ground. Grandkids were able to roam freely and play with the other children. A good choice of takeaways in Tuxford.

    Charging £5 for wifi in this day and age is a little petty.

    Lovely large pitches - noticeably larger than most we stay. Nice park at the bottom of the site for children and very quiet site (albeit it wasn’t busy at all).

    Disliked: 

    Checking in and out was very difficult and we had to park and walk around the park to be let through the barrier. We then weren’t given a code to exit the park, so again on the morning we left had to wander around asking someone to let us out. Numerous people around us had experienced the same on arrival.

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 (21.8 kilometres)
