Welcome to Orchard Park
Orchard Park is situated in a quiet unspoilt location on the outskirts of the old market town of Tuxford. Set within a mature fruit orchard in the gently rolling Nottinghamshire landscape it is a superb location for relaxing in the countryside. We offer pitches for touring caravans, tents, trailer tents, small to medium sized motor homes, ideal for week-end breaks, longer holidays, or, for the hectic traveller, just an overnight stop not too far from the A1.
Within a short drive you will find the haunts of Robin Hood, acres of Sherwood Forest, the grand parks of The Dukeries such as Clumber Park (National Trust) and Rufford Abbey.
Activities encompass plenty of walks and gentle cycle rides, through to the more active pursuits of cycling on purpose built challenging trails in Sherwood Pines and High Wire adventure of Go Ape. Sherwood Forest Visitors Centre and Edwinstowe village host an annual Robin Hood Festival each August.
The nearby towns of Newark – fine market square, civil war castle, riverside location on the River Trent –, Retford – market and former coaching town on the old Great North Road –, Southwell – market town with the 13th century minster church –, Lincoln – cathedral and county town, are all worth a visit.
For children there are several farm parks and wildlife discovery attractions. We have our own David Bellamy conservation award.
