After a 5 hour trip to our holiday destination with 3 kids in the hot caramed packed car (arguing , asking if we are there yet etc ) THE ORCHIDS Clacton on sea. We enter the site , We got lost finding reception directions not to good , We were directed to our caravan , With me being a clean freak I was dreading this but upon entering the carvan my worries were gone, it was immaculate and the linen provided was also clean and fresh. The first night was quiet , you had a programme of events but not how to enter then . The 2nd day we went to bradley bears picinic but as we hadnt pre booked couldnt enter , we were told that in the main show room every night you were told how to enter the events, which was not explained to us so we were pretty upset but after that we went to the shows which were brill .
every night was bingo at 6 for over 18s and the kids were sent to the bradley club which was nice for the break . at 8 the bradley bear show was on which the kids loved my eldest is 9 he also enjoyed the activities. After that more shows such as pop grouos, comedians, etc. In the day time were sports , fun and games swimming pool outside, swimming pool inside. amusement arcades, bingo ,outside rangers and lots more . The only complaint was that the extra activities were expensive ie amusments, which you had to go through to enter the main show bar. The pictures that went with every activities and the drinks. They did a swimming program which was brilliant so if you have a young family this is the place for you .Oh one tip book 3 months before you go that way you get more discounts .have fun.
