Why stay here ...

The Club CL site at Kings Orchard Marina on the Coventry canal is set in 20 acres of peaceful Staffordshire countryside close to the historic city of Lichfield. The marina has some 90 berths most of which will be taken up by traditional, brightly painted narrow boats - the floating caravans of Britain's unique canal heritage. There is an on site caretaker available to take your booking, direct you to your pitch and answer any questions you might have.

The CL site, which is level with grass pitches, is bordered by the canal on one side, and on the others by mature trees and has a fantastic view across the marina and far into the distance across open country. Water and electric hook ups are provided for each caravan or motor home, immaculate showers and toilets are a few steps away as is the Elsan disposal unit and there is a food preparation area at one end of the facilities building. Waste disposal facilities are provided. TV reception is good as is that for most mobile phone networks. Dotted around the beautifully landscaped, tree lined property are barbecues and seating areas free for all to enjoy. A secure gate leads onto the canal towpath offering pleasant walks in both directions. You will be provided with a key for this and other security gates for use during your stay.

There is a second larger facilities building housing the on site caretaker's office and shop selling maps, guide books, toilet chemicals, gas, coal and other items.

Kings Orchard Marina is close to many places of interest including The National Memorial Aboretum, the UK's centre of remembrance, Drayton Manor, home of Thomas the Tank Engine and many fantastic rides, Tamworth Castle, Foxfield standard gauge steam railway and the city of Lichfield with its 800 year old Cathedral. Ask our caretaker for guide books and directions to these and many other places worth visiting. Please note there is no public transport nearby.

If you are looking for somewhere special with plenty of space, peaceful and quiet and well away from the beaten track Kings Orchard Marina is for you. Sensibly priced with no irritating add ons for this that and the other, offering a warm welcome to adults, children and well behaved dogs from March to October with a terrific pub a short walk away and shops an easy car ride, we believe our newest CL site will appeal to all Caravan Club members looking to get away from it all and relax in the most tranquil of surroundings.

Fishing is also available from the Canal towpath (only with a licence).

Why not call our caretaker on 01543 433608 today and make a booking. You won't regret it!

Wonderful friendly site

Wonderful site, warm welcome, nothing was to much trouble, the toilet/shower blocks very clean with full shower room facilities, well maintained secure site. Through the site gate was the canal, views are amazing. 15 minutes stroll down the canal was The Plough pub which does great food and good beer, very friendly staff. We only stayed one night, and wished we could have stayed a couple more, we will be back again. We would highly recommend this lovely peaceful site.

Excellent CL Site

Visited King Orchard Marina in April for 7 nights and stayed on the commercial pitches. Managers very welcoming and helpful. Had a fantastic time as a family of 5. Close to Lichfield which we found wonderful. Toilet and shower block on site was just perfect. Will definitely be back. Loved it 👍🏿

3rd Visit

This is our 3rd visit to this great CL, we have also visited their other site at Leighton Buzzard. They are both great with great clean facilities and a warm welcome. We stayed here mainly to visit the National Arboretum which is just 7 minutes away, but Lichfield is also a lovely place to wander around. Each pitch has electric and water, but the Wifi was very poor. Looking forward to our next visit.

A little Gem of a place

What a lovely site and such a very warm welcome. We will definitely visit again. Ideally placed for a visit to The National Memorial Arboretum which is about a five minute drive on the back lanes or Ten minutes using the A38. Water and electric hook up and not overly crowded. The Plough Inn nearby, just a short walk along the Canal Tow Path is a very good watering hole that has very good food. The wash room facilities are spotless and spacious. A very pleasant stay.

Fantastic CL - a real gem

We booked into Kings Orchard Marina for one night en route back to Norfolk from Wales and ended up staying for two. Quiet, level grass pitches with own water. Immaculate Elsan facility and fantastic toilet facilities. Good Pub 10 mins walk away down towpath with extensive menu and reasonably priced. Lichfield is a 40 minute safe walk away - interesting Cathedral and an abundance of real ale pubs. I really cannot fault this polished site - thoroughly recommended!
