Welcome to Orchard Bank Caravan and Motorhome Park.
Orchard Bank nestles in delightful countryside close to the ancient fort of Cadbury Hill, fifteen miles south of Bristol. The site is peaceful and secluded, but good coffee and cake, a decent pint and the morning paper are all available a pleasant fifteen minute walk across the fields in Yatton.
The village also offers a Co-op and an excellent range of dinning options including fish and chips, Indian and Chinese, so there is no need to cook if you fancy getting something delivered. We have a list of eating options available in the area and will be happy to recommend something to match your mood!
The site is enclosed by lovely mature hedges and offers five roomy hard pitches in two paddocks. Each pitch includes an electric hook-up and large grass area so you can spread out and make yourselves comfortable. There is a mains tap in each paddock with recycling bins and a chemical disposal point by the site entrance. The TV and Wi-Fi signals are strong, and you are welcome to barbeque responsibly.
The area offers lots of interest, including the fantastic seven mile beach between Burnham and Brean where you can park and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. The Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge are close by with a wide variety of walks and the area is well known for birdwatching including the famous starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels. Cyclists love the area with flat cycling nearby and on the Levels or, for the energetic, there are challenges such as the aforementioned Cheddar Gorge. Again, we can supply more details of places to go. And of course, Bristol, Bath, Weston Super Mare and Wells are all within an easy drive or accessible via public transport.
As the new owners our exciting plans for the next couple of years include digging a half-acre lake and developing bee friendly pasture to support our resident hives. We don't take the honey, we're just trying to put a few more bees into the world. As there are livestock close to the site regrettably we can't take pets or children.
Having lived in the village for years, we feel completey priviledged to be setting off on this exciting new venture and are determinded to make our small but perfectly formed site one of the friendliest and most enjoyable in the south west.
Come and see us! We'd love to welcome you to Orchard Bank soon.

Spent 5 nights at orchard bank beginning of august on our return from cornwall. Very welcoming owners and beautifully kept site. Even received a refund at the wifi was down. Would be 5 stars all the way but I suppose the aircraft noise would annoy some people, we like aircraft spotting anyway. Will definitely use this site again.
A really lovely site - largely peaceful - especially in the dead of night. Noise from the nearby airport is a minor niggle but it wouldn't stop me coming. The friendly, flexible and welcoming owners (Charles and Diana!) are very easy to deal with and very responsive by email. Great for exploring the North Somerset coast (Clevedon, Weston-s-Mare etc). Excellent cycle path (the Strawberry Line) in nearby Yatton - safe off-road, and goes all the way to Cheddar. A very pretty ride on a good surface. Easy access to Bristol, too. We loved it here and would not hesitate to book and stay again. Good directions provided - although our Satnav took us pretty much to the door using the recommended route.
Loved it here
Great site, friendly owners, very peacefull, just wish i could have spent more time just chilling at the site but had things planned. Saw a deer running down the back of my van on the last morning which was great i would deffo use this site again.
I booked in by phone and Diane emailed me very good directions to the site including relevant photos on route. Charlie welcomed us on arrival and Diane came later with a welcome pack with all the details of services in the area. The site is clean tidy and well laid out with 5 large almost level hard standing with gravel surface, 2 water taps, one in each paddock. There is quit a lot of aircraft noise due to the close proximity of Bristol airport and also the railway runs near by, but no flying at night. the position of the site makes it ideal for visits into Bristol only taking 25minuits to city entre by car. This is a lovely site and I will certainly use it again for my next weekend visit to Bristol.
A little Gem of a Site
We booked this site in the hope of getting some sleep as the seagulls had created havoc where we live and were "singing" us awake at 0330 most mornings. We were not disappointed... The approach roads were a bit narrow, but luckily we didn't meet anything coming the other direction, so this wasn't an issue for us. On arrival Diane met us with a smile and a well put together package of all the local information we would need. We met Charlie the next day, when he showed us how to open the middle of three gates to the site entrance without breaking our backs (I'm glad he did as it was obvious really, but we just didn't think due to previous sleep depravation!). We soon pitched up and were met with the longed for peace which we sought. Weston Super Mare is a short drive away and so is Bristol, along the A370. The site is quite central to everything we needed to visit was not too far. The Bristol Airport flight path is above the site but we soon got used to the little noise that there was and enjoyed "plane spotting" with our binoculars. The only other noises which could be heard were a rooster (once, but not in the early hours!), A few cattle mooing and sheep baaing in the nearby paddocks and horses whinnying too. Ahh, lovely tranquil site where we were able to recharge our batteries and listen to the sounds of nature. We put a bird table up which they were reluctant to use at first but by the end of the week we were regularly being visited by great tits, blue tits, sparrows, thrushes and wood pigeons. The wifi was very good, although it did slow down a bit during some particularly unpleasant weather, which was to be expected, but it soon picked up again. We found Diane and Charlie to be most pleasant and helpful during our stay and we would thoroughly recommend anyone to visit here.
Directions : From the M5 exit at Junction 21 take the A370 signposted Congresbury passing through two sets of traffic lights. After 1.5 miles turn left into Bishops Road. In one mile (where the road turns sharp left) turn right signposted Streamcross. In 0.25 miles turn left at junction into no through road. The site is on the right in 50 metres.
