Company info

Welcome to Orchard Hideaways. We are David and Susan Heritage and along with our children and grandchildren, we have lovingly restored this ancient orchard. Having bought the land a number of years ago, we secured planning permission to build no more than 16 camping pods on the site. Over a year later, along with blood, sweat and some tears we cleared the ancient site of 40 years worth of weeds, shrubs and ivy. Needless to say, it was back-breaking, removing tonnes of unwanted earth and rubble. We have since spent the time restoring the remaining apple trees and planting new ones to create a working orchard and a serene place for all our guests to stay. The pods themselves are completely bespoke and lovingly built by us. Each one is designed to make full use of the space, creating the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts, families or couples to stay. Orchard Hideaways is a family business that was built using each of our skills to create a space for the community to enjoy. We pride ourselves on offering clean, comfortable accommodation and a warm welcome for all of our guests.
