Why stay here ...

Burnham Wick Farm CL is situated in a beautifully idyllic location on a working arable farm in rural Essex. Apart from agriculture,the farm has a strong emphasis on Conservation and is a previous winner of FWAG`s `Farming and Conservation` competition and also received a `Nature of Farming` award. We are signed up to the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and Entry Level Stewardship and as a result, we have established Over-Winter stubble areas, plus margins along fields have been created to encourage Beetle-Banks, with Pollen nectar-mix and wild bird-mix. A Lapwing breeding programme is being developed and Cornbuntings are in abundance. The Seawall adjoining the farm is an area of SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and birdwatching is always rewarding in this area.

There are extensive footpaths and bridleways on the farm and beyond, which make it a haven for walkers,dogs and cyclists alike.Pet Llamas and Alpacas are a feature on our farm, as well as the many beautiful horses which are in the fields near the CL. The site itself is located on a large flat field with electrical hook-ups and ample space for awnings.

We have an Information Room at the CL entrance which contains a wealth of local information and maps, as well as a good selection of novels and this has received many positive remarks from visitors. There is a local shop within a mile of the site as well as an hourly bus service into Maldon and other larger centres. Burnham on Crouch has many pubs, restaurants and even a small cinema, with two screens.

Our CL is known for its tranquillity and peacefulness and many caravanners return time and again to spend time on this gem in the Dengie Peninsula. A warm welcome awaits you!

Great return to Burnham

Having lived in Burnham for 30 years but moved away 15 years ago it was great to be back in the area. Arrival was straightforward with all necessary info on the outside of the information room at the entrance to the field. When we reported in to Adrienne we found her to be very helpful and she had up-to-date advice on some of the local hostelries. The field is flat and there is plenty of room - there was only our unit plus one other during our stay but, even when full it shouldn't be crowded. Water is centrally located and all plots have EHU although if you want to park away from the trees then you will need to run you cable across the field. We parked near to the trees but still had sun to sit in until late afternoon. The town is a 20 minute walk from the site and there are lots of eateries/pubs mostly down the bottom (nearest) part but with others up the road towards the station. There is a good sized Co-op near the station and a Tesco Express and one-Stop further down together with many other local shops and a small cinema. Out of town there is the Mangapps Railway Museum with its ¾ mile of track and the city of Chelmsford is about 30 minutes away by car. The RHS Hyde Hall Gardens are also nearby by car. All in all we had a great time and we would certainly book here again if in the area.

Just returned from a four night stay on this great CL. Excellent walking direct from the site along the sea wall in to Burnham on Crouch and also the wonderful surrounding farmland and all its aspects towards conservation and wildlife. We especially loved the wild flower areas and the beautiful sunflowers. Fantastic and spacious pitches, together with a very warm welcome from the owner all made for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Fabulous

First stay of 2018, hopefully more before the end of the season. Wonderful welcome, as is usual. Plentiful wildlife immediately outside your 'van. First thing we heard on arrival was the cuckoo. Had a very close encounter with the barn owl too. So peaceful and tranquil, so good for the soul.

Fantastic, just love it

This was our third stay at this fantastic site. From the email before arrival telling us our pitch number and earliest arrival time to the welcome from Adrienne and Martin just perfect. This is a full facilities site within walking distance of Burnham on Crouch. Walking along the road takes about 20 minutes. Plenty of POI in the area also great walks along the river and around the farm. Fantastic wildlife on show each day.
