Welcome to the Orchard Getaway, an award winning luxury campsite set amongst plum trees in the beautiful Vale of Evesham in Worcestershire.
The market town of Evesham is three miles away, and you can reach the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a 10-minute drive.
At the top of the orchard sits a seven metre Mongolian yurt which sleeps four in one double and two single beds. The yurt has its own shower, composting toilet, outside kitchen and seating area.
Sharing an area further down the orchard are Avalon Carriage, a converted 1930s railway wagon, Greengage Yurt, a 5 metre Kyrgyz yurt and Swan, a fully furnished 4 metre bell tent. Each unit has its own picnic table for alfresco dining, and there’s a shared mess tent with a social cooking and eating area. Other communal facilities include showers and compost toilets.
There are several walking and cycle routes nearby for all abilities and fitness levels, including some long-distance paths such as the Cotswold Way and Wychavon Way. We are happy to provide advice on routes, or support if you’d like transport to or from particular sections of these paths. On site bike hire is also available with bikes provided by Evesham Adventure Playground
The site is totally off grid so there is no electricity, but you’ll be provided with candles and battery- or solar-powered lights, and there are books and games to borrow to keep you entertained. Campfires are permitted on site so gather round the crackling logs and admire the starry sky away from modern gadgetry.
We are really proud to have been awarded the Wychavon Intelligently Green award in recognition of our efforts to make sure our site has as low an impact on the environment as possible while benefiting our guests and the surrounding communities.
Here are some of the judges’ comments :
“Attractive accommodation – great for tourism.”
“Visitors see environmental practices in action and may take them away and change their behaviours at home.”
“Very strong business concept that demonstrates that you can a run a successful business along intelligently green lines.”

We had such a lovely time at The Orchard. It was a perfect slice of relaxation and downtime away from the hustle & bustle of life.
A truly lovely place to visit, set in a beautiful location and run by the most accommodating people. We visited for two nights and had a great time, relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. Everything has been well thought out and kept neat and clean, all that you could want from a camping trip. We will be recommending to friends and family!
An amazing weekend away with our two children (age 3 & 6), brilliant facilities -even including camping chairs! Kids loved exploring the campsite, swinging in the hammocks and picking plums. We all loved it so much and will definitely return next year!
Lovely experience, stunning location, loved the yurt, the cooking and washing up tent.
Such a great place. Peaceful, fun, beautiful. Just want to go back and spend even more time there.
Very relaxing and the yurts very comfortable and cosy
We had an amazing time in the greengage yurt this weekend. Myself, husband and our 2 young girls could not have found a more perfect place to get away from everything and enjoy a weekend of relaxation. The toilets and showers were very economical but extremely quirky, the kitchen tent and dining area had everything we needed to cook and enjoy our local produce. Cannot wait to return!
Great time staying at the Burbank Yurt, it's huge and really comfortable. The site is laid out so you have privacy from other guests and we had a really peaceful stay, mainly spent around the fire pit! Marcus and Kirsty were very welcoming and the whole ethos of the site is great. Highly recommended!
We had a great time for my Dad's 70th birthday. We hired all three bell tents so had exclusive use of the mess tent, showers + loos. Lovely site - clean and well thought out. Saturday afternoon was spent SUP boarding at Bonkers Activity Centre in Pershore where all of us, from age 6 to 70, stood up on the boards. Kristy made us a fab cake which, along with the hammocks and the open fire, added to the fun! Definitely recommend.
