Haven The Orchards Sports & Leisure

Haven holiday parks are all about families, and as such, much thought and expense goes into the sports and leisure facilities.  Of course one of the highlights of the park is the water activities not to mention the Heated Indoor Fun Pool and the Heated Outdoor Fun Pool in the summer months.  For the more active you can hire Water Walkerz, Aquajets, Aqua Gliders or simply some fun inflatables. Extra charges apply.

The whole family can enjoy walks on the beach which is located right in front of the park.  Or why not have a go on the 9 Hole Golf Coarse or try some fishing in the Course Fishing Lakes. Carp, Tench and Bream are just some of the fish living in the lakes.  A current rod licence is required and you will need to purchase a permit at the Golf Hut.  For family friendly fun take a ride on the Pedal Boats or enjoy a game of crazy golf.  Mini Bowling is also available at The Orchards.

Some activities are subject to a moderate extra charge
