Stinking toilets, dirty tiny showers and not enough of either. We stayed over the third weekend of August which happended to be hot and the campsite was very busy with little free spaces and the toilet / shower block was busy, often queueing and always smelly. We have been to other campsites with glow sticks, campfires and ponds etc so... More

Unfortunate had smell from sewage works drifting over during the sunny weekend stay last July. With young children a concern with the river and 3 deep ponds on site. Loud music going on until gone 1am not great. Facilities good and quite clean, staff friendly and shop had lots in case you are short. Chip shop in village very handy.... More

A lovely campsite, with a great variety of pitches, either peaceful ones by the river or in the woods. The children loved playing in the river, using the Ping pong table and playing in the small playground. One of their highlights was collecting glow sticks with all the kids in one of the night time games organised by the campsite.... More

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend spent with friends, there were 3 tents in our group, one being in an electric hookup separately. We were nicely nestled next to the river deben and on the edge of the small wood. Nicely greeted by a very relaxed and chilled out Stuart, who I thought a really nice chap, he showed us to our...

Had a 2 weeks stay with the family at the Orchard campsite, wonderful site, lots of space, very friendly and helpful staff. The showers and toilets were cleaned very often. The campfires on the pitches are unique. The kids loved the glowsticks that were given away! Shop with essentials and fine beers. Very well recommended.

Absolutely fantastic campsite...only rule within reason is no music after 23.00. We didnt meet Alan but his son and girlfriend are so friendly and accommodating. Sat and chatted with us and very welcoming even when dealing with professional complainers who obviously didnt read how "relaxed" the site is. Will definately be back. Thanks for a great weekend. If you are... More

This is our first experience of camping. The weather was exceptionally good during this planned weekend. Found it to be on a large site of 3 different area, one close to a river for fishing or dipping into in hot weather. Dog friendly and also had electric hook ups. A nice little shop in site which stocked locally sourced meat... More

We stayed with 8 adults 8 children, had a great spot just by the pond which amused the children...scared the mums initially but they were safe. The campsite is very well run lots of lovely touches such as the glow stick party, local beers,well equipped shop. The... More

I could sum this campsite up with just this....we asked our children where they wanted to go abroad next year and they said "can't we just go to the orchard instead". If you love marked out pitches, evening entertainment, quiet children and a bunch of campsite rules you might want to go somewhere else. However if you love common sense... More
