We have been to the Orchards every year for the last four years and it is superb. Our most recent trip was again excellent. It was very good value for money, especially as it was during the Easter school holidays. They booked our ferry travel too.The caravan was of a good standard. The park itself is very clean and quiet.The indoor pool is £1.50 per person with a family max charge of £5 which is a good price when you compare to how much it costs to take everyone swimming in our local council run pool.The Take Away was really good food, again good value for money.There are two play areas, one for younger children and one for older.If you have very young children who are used to sleeping in a cot, you need to take your own bed guard as they don't have any for you to hire
A fabulous place to stay for visiting the IOW... Blackgang Chine is only 20-25 mins away; Carisbrooke Castle only 10 mins; Osborne House only 10 mins etc.
The facilities block for tourers and campers that opened last year is absolutely amazing - I've never seen anything like it with family & disabled+carer bathrooms; kitchen area; laundry; showers etc.
The Horse and Groom at Ningwood is a good pub (very close by) to go with a young family as they have bouncy castle/crazy golf and space to play outside.More
