 Fantastic site. Well kept, nice and quiet. Large pitches. Lovely area.

Toilet block pristine and great showers.

Staff were brilliant and so friendly. A great, relaxing stay.

 Lovely campsite in a lovely setting. However, here comes the dislikes.

The site was in need of some TLC. Our particular pitch, as were others, the grass was over grown, but we had the addition of a very deep rut running the whole length of the grass where our awning was to be pitched, it made it quite unsafe for us to move freely in our awning, thus reducing our space, and made it difficult putting the awning up and taking down.

We also didn't like having to invade our neighbours pitch for water and electric hook up, however, it did look like ours was the only pitch without ehu and water, when we booked for it. Other better pitches were empty, so it begs the question of why use that particular pitch, when it was, in our opinion, one of the worst. Although we are aware that our neighbours also complained about the condition of their pitch.

That all said, we would return, but are now better informed as to which pitches were better ones, as this was our first visit. We have rated the site based on our experience this time, had there not been the issues we had, it would have been higher. Please disregard the child friendly rating, as we didn't have any, nor did we see any.

 A small CL site but exceptional,

Location was lovely,

Site was very clean and the facilities were clean and adequate for the size of the site,

It also boasted a non CL site which again was above expectations

Reviewer: CaravanGeorge 1 review from this member

 The caretakers were very friendly and helpful. We picked our own hardstanding pitch which had electricity and water supply. It was only a short walk to the shower/toilet facilities.

There was only two which did make me wonder if it might be a little inconvenient if a bit busier in summer. The toilet/shower rooms were very clean and warm. There was plentiful toilet rolls, paper hand towels and nice smelling handwash.

In better weather you could walk along the canalside to the Plough Inn at Huddlesford which I would recommend. Although there is some noise from the nearby A38 and the mainline railway - it wasn't enough to disturb us.

It was easy to find the site - but beware that the turn comes very quickly after the humpback bridge near to The Plough pub, we almost missed it and had to reverse up a little bit.

I would definitely recommend this site, it is close to the lovely city of Lichfield and great for walks along the canal.

 Just to confirm at Kings Orchard Marina there is a Caravan Club Certificated Location, which is open from April to October and restricted to Caravan Club members only.

In addition, there is a private all weather ten pitch caravan site with electric hook up at the marina in a separate location from the CL and utilising different shower and toilet facilities. This year round site is open to all.

Reviewer: Kingsmead 1 review from this member

 Just spent a week on this lovely peaceful, site. We booked the CL but had to use the small commercial site as CL pitches very wet. This was excellent, hard standing with water and hook up, on every pitch. Lovely location well looked after I and very welcoming. Wardens very friendly and helpful. Hope to visit again.

Reviewer: Rimor25 6 reviews from this member

 I really doubt if anywhere could match the facilities of this site or the friendliness of the wardens, Clearly the main users being narrow boats people pay huge annual mooring fees for these facities which I understand is only three years old and cost around 5 million to complete, with the amount of tree planting near the camping pitches would indicate that as the site matures it will become even better, the slight drawback possibly again down to newness is the clay like camping pitches in both CL and commercial pitch harstanding areas in the commercial site means that after heavy rain the CL is unusable and it was very boggy underneath our awning minor problems that I guess will be addressed in future. Toilet and showers are amazing so too the individual serviced hook ups saves lugging Aqua roll if you have a ball cock and hose adaption. Really, Really good an amazing place.

 What a great find. Arrived to find a lovely flat pitch with electric and water hook up. Wardens were friendly and helpful. Showers were modern and clean. They CL is at the end of the site so very little traffic. Use the post code for The Plough pub and then followed the Brown Signs to the Marina. Would recommend and will return.

Reviewer: Stuart2054 3 reviews from this member

 As already said, a great little find, really easy to find, good access and a secure and level site.

CL is in the corner of the Marina, very secluded, you can hear and smell the barges but not see them as they pass along the canal. All to be expected if you are booking a pitch at a canal side location.

The welcome and booking in could not have been better and the site facilities could not be any cleaner.

A great site which we will be returning to
