Have just returned from a 4 night stay at The Orchards with 4 young grandchildren aged between 4 and 7. This is a clean well maintained site, smaller than the better known caravan sites but with two swimming pools, indoor and outdoor which is the main attraction for most children. We were shown to our spacious caravan by a helpful... More

It's ideal for young children with easy access, lots of facilities and... More

Thank you for your honest review. We are pleased that you had a lovely time. Regarding the Wifi. Let me explain that it cost us a lot to set up and we also pay a lot to maintain it. We have a normal broadband service in a rural area (slow speed!) Unfortunately because we are in a rural location on... More

Seeing all the many excellent reviews for The Orchards I must assume that my experience was unusual. I do hope so. My primary complaint is that although I made it totally clear when I made the booking by 'phone that I was coming to the caravan to do the research to complete my present novel for which I must have...

Having read your review I was disappointed that you have not been totally honest. Following your letter of complaint I fully investigated all interactions between yourself and the team on the occasions that you came into reception. I found that your interpretation of the “matches” incident is different to that of the member of our team involved and to which... More

Excellent site striking the fine balance between big enough to offer great facilities and small enough to care. The toilet / shower blocks / washing place are like something out of a modern conference centre and not a camp site, they are spacious, immaculate and have piped music. The pools are brilliant both indoor and outdoor and are available to... More

This site was on the Red Funnel deal for early July 2015. The deal was for 5 or 10 days stay and included return ferry trips for our Motorhome. Positioned between Cowes and Yarmouth it is 'out in the sticks' but well sign posted with bus stops right outside the campsite. We were greeted in a friendly manner and personally... More

We rented a 6-berth caravan that was really large, very clean and very comfortable. The site is immaculate, quiet and safe. Kids loved the pool. We visited the needles, colwell bay and Yarmouth within 10 minutes driving. Would live to return soon!
