Our main problem with weekends, is that we never know where to go. All the seaside places will be busy, as you would expect so we decided to look for something in land and found a gem of a place near Litchfield, just an hours drive away.
An early finish on Friday saw us arrive at the Kings Orchard Marina mid afternoon and we were soon set up on our pitch (hardstanding) on the private campsite section of the marina, worth knowing is that they also have a CL site which is grass standing.
We have, for some years, fancied our own boat on the rivers/canals and this reignited that desire so we will see what the future holds there……
The pitches all have their own water tap, electricity & were very spacious, enough for an awning, chairs/table and BBQ – overall a quiet and very pleasant, little site indeed.
The marina is located on the Coventry canal and a very nice place indeed with a family of swans taking up residence close by.
Relaxing under the awning, nice walks along the towpath, the wildlife, what’s not to enjoy?
The weekend went so quickly so before we departed, we booked again, this time for a long weekend and we wouldn’t have to wait long.
The swans were still around however there was only 1 adult swan so not sure why this was but nice to see the young ones thriving.
This site was very peaceful and definitely one that we would recommend and return to in the future, especially during the summer when everywhere else is leaping with holiday makers.
There’s something calming about the water and this is evident as we did not have any “autistic meltdowns” for the duration.
