The Orchards Holiday Park
Main Rd, Newbridge, Yarmouth PO41 0TS - 01983 531350
The Orchards has been awarded the 2015 AA Campsite of the Year for the South East and has won 18 successive gold David Bellamy Conservation Awards. Situated in Newbridge, with stunning countryside views and high-quality facilities, it is well located for walking, cycling and visiting the Island's attractions. There are 164 marked touring pitches in paddocks, with a good mix of grass, water-serviced and hardstanding.
In addition, there's a choice of 65 well-equipped four- or six-berth holiday caravans, arranged in a spacious setting. Most have wonderful views across rolling countryside, double glazing and central heating, and offer a high level of comfort. Also available is a Sovereign holiday caravan for wheelchair users and those with special needs. The beautiful and very well-equipped Orchard House, situated at the entrance to The Orchards Holiday Park, is also available to rent for up to 10 people (see Sleep, pp87-89).
Facilities in the park include a heated indoor pool with poolside coffee shop (open all season), heated outdoor pool and paddling pool (open late May to September), adventure play areas, shop, takeaway food bar, table tennis and dog-walking area. Wi-Fi is also available at a small cost. The impressive energy-efficient Facilities Centre has under-floor heating and 24 showers and toilets.
