Welcome to the Orchard Getaway, an award winning luxury campsite set amongst plum trees in the beautiful Vale of Evesham in Worcestershire.
**NEW** We now have Avalon Carriage available for you to book! Be one of the first to stay in our unique converted railway wagon.
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.”
