Reception opening hours 8.00am – 5.00pm
A selection of everyday essentials can be purchased from our small shop at Reception, which includes items such as bread, eggs, bacon, sausages, milk, local mushrooms and tinned foodstuffs. You can even purchase bottles of fresh fruit juice made from our fruit on the Leckford Estate! We also have a vending machine stocking crisps, confectionery items and drinks. In response to Covid-19 we would ask all customers to use the sanitiser provided prior to entering the shop, children must be supervised at all times, we would ask all customers to lone shop where possible and we will limit the reception to a maximum of 2 customers at any one time. We would ask all customers to add any shop items onto their bill to eliminate the use of cash and small card transactions.
Toilets, showers and washing up facilities are available in the main Orchard Lodge building & Apple Press restaurant building and are open 24 hours per day. During the Covid-19 pandemic we would ask partners where possible to avoid using the shower facilities during peak times (8am-10am & 6pm-8pm) in order to ensure social distancing can be maintained. The toilets & showers will be closed at various times during the day for additional cleaning.
Camping guests have use of a fridge, freezer and microwave.
There is a grey water waste point located outside of the washing up room which can be used by caravans/motor homes and campers. There is a chemical waste point located close to the caravan/motor home pitches, please be aware this does not allow for drive over waste disposal.
Free Wi-Fi is available in the Apple Press Restaurant & the Orchard Lodge Games Room, this is not available in your accommodation. The password is: lodges2015
A selection of mountain bikes are available for hire, these are adult size bikes and are not suitable for young children. Bikes are available to hire between 8am and 5pm but we advise that you hire your bikes early morning to make the most of your hire charge. Hire is charged at £5 per bike per day. During the Covid-19 pandemic all bikes will be thoroughly sanitised after use ready for the next user.
During the Covid-19 pandemic our games room is still available to use but will feel very different to normal. You can still make use of the soft seating areas which have been positioned to allow social distancing and also the Pool Table, Table Tennis Table and Table football will still be available to use with regular cleaning being provided by our partners. All other toys and games have been removed until further notice and we would ask that children are supervised at all times in the games room and remain within their family group.
Children’s Play AreasWe have a play area suitable for under 5's which includes a sand pit, hide away house, climbing frame & swings. For older children there is a larger play area to let them burn off some energy. During the Covid-19 pandemic our partners will be completing regular sanitising of playground equipment. We would ask that no food and drink are consumed within the playground areas.
