Good things: * Lovely location in Wickham Market, very easy to reach off the A12 (and not too much traffic noise once you're there) * Open fires allowed (although logs are a bit pricey at £15/wheelbarrow) * Glow stick mania for the children on Sat night, plus tug-of-war for assorted teams * Really nice ladies washroom with some very thoughtful...

Very relaxed site, hardly any rules but everyone just seemed to prove that we all know how to behave sensibly anyway! Easy to pitch 5 tents and a gazebo together. Love having a camp fire, love the glow stick scavenge, the kids love the woods. As mentioned before, the shop isn't amazingly well stocked for food (although they did have... More

We held a small family reunion weekend in June 2014, with daughter and family in a camper van, son and family in a tent, and Mum & Dad in the B&B, which is in the main hub of the site. It was a really relaxing weekend - the weather was good, the children could play in the park, running hither... More

We stayed at this campsite with several other families over the May bank holiday weekend. The staff were friendly and helpful and the site is very pretty with a lovely mix of green space, tall trees and a river running along the lower edge. However, it was very busy with many tents pitched close together and lots of cars on... More

Fifteen of us went for a 15 year olds birthday party.We found the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful.The toilets and showers were always clean and there was plenty of really hot water to shower and wash dishes with. The shop was very interesting and doubles up as a social area.There is attractive wooden seating outside the shop and a pay... More

We stayed here for the week before Easter. The site was not busy unless you wanted hook up. The staff were friendly and helpful. Even phoning the local sewage plant when the odour blew over. There's are only a few loos so queue do develop, so practice those pelvic floor muscles! The showers were clean but dated and could do... More

spent a weekend at the orchards, staff really great, loads of space and knee deep in aliens! the alian weekend is the best fun you can have at the end of september at a camp site anywhere. One drawback, lack of toilet and showers, queueing in the morning, not good.This said it will not stop me from returning.

We stayed at this campsite for one night at the beginning of September and had a great time. We picked this site as we could have an open camp fire which proved a hard thing to find. The site wasn't very busy and had a quite private pitch with no one with in 30 meters of us. You have to... More

Spent a couple of nights here, just myself and my 12 year old son in a two man tent! As we didn't require electric we were shown a couple of pitches down in the woods and chose a spot next to the river. I realise that having good weather helps but we really did enjoy our stay. Facilities were good... More
