Why stay here ...

Roger and Sara would like to extend a warm welcome to you on their CL.

We are conveniently located in the quaint village of Askham, just minutes from the A1 at Markham Moor but far enough away to offer you a peaceful stay.

Our CL is located on a livestock farm and the CL is set on about an acre of land surrounded by hedges, with scenic views of the rolling countryside.

We can offer you a choice of 3 hardstanding pitches and 2 grass pitches with 16amp electric hook up and recycling facilities.

Just off site you will find off-road walks ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours and are minutes from our rally field.

A short stroll into the centre of Askham village you will find the Duke William pub serving good food and drinks, a bus stop taking you into the Georgian market town of Retford.

A little further and you will find Tuxford village there you will find a Co-op, Costcutter, post-office, chemist, butchers’ shop, hairdressers and Newsagents. Locally at Markham Moor there is a petrol station, MacDonalds, KFC and a Subway.

Excellent site

Orchard Hill Farm
Used this site as a stopover on our way home to Norfolk from Scotland as it is very convenient being only a mile off the A1. Comprehensive information was emailed prior to our visit. The pitches are very well spaced and there are lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Didn't get a chance to explore the local area apart from a very nice dog walk just down the road from the entrance. Set on a working farm, this is a very welcome addition to the CL network and we can thoroughly recommend it.

Lovely setting

Orchard Hill Farm
Really happy we found this CL. The location from main roads is ideal but far enough away so no traffic noise, good access onto the CL, wide entrance and secure gate. We had a lovely meal at the local pub just a short walk from the campsite and will definitely return to explore the area more. We were made to feel very welcome with good communication and information after booking, Roger was always available on the farm and was very friendly. Lovely views from the campsite and the hard standing pitches were perfect for us in a heavy motorhome. Good tv and mobile phone reception. Looking forward to coming back for a return stay.

Lovely local site

Orchard Hill Farm
A belated review as I stayed here with my daughter for 2 nights during October half term 2021. It is very local to where we keep our caravan so ideal for a quick getaway with minimal travel. Easy to find and a well laid out site and communication from the owners was fantastic. On the doorstep of Sherwood Forest and Clumber Park so great for adventures. We were welcomed by Sara and Roger and despite the weather had a lovely stay. Will definitely be visiting again.

Well positioned new CL

Orchard Hill Farm
This is a brand new CL, which is easily located from the A1, and the welcome we received from the owners for our last minute booking was very friendly. It has lovely countryside views, and a nice looking pub within easy walking distance (not tried). Facilities all brand new and easily accessed. Chemical disposal rinse tap is from a water butt, well separated from the drinking water.

Beautiful rural stay

Orchard Hill Farm
We have stayed twice now at Orchard Hill Farm and love this new CL site and will definitely be returning. You'll find it down a country lane going into the picturesque North Nottinghamshire village of Askham, this CL provides a peaceful 5 pitch retreat with far reaching views which would be perfect for friend and family get togethers. Sara and Roger's instructions proved helpful as we found our way around the simple site. Its a working farm so we took care about where our daughter played but she had a great time, especially collecting sloe berries on our walk down to the village pub. Would recommend for couples and families and think it provides a perfect A1 stop off point due to its proximity to the Markham Moor junction of the A1 (5 minutes). We shall definitely be returning and wish to thank the owners for opening up a new CL we can add to our local favourites list. Am
