Why stay here ...

Our CL is a quiet site, set on a smallholding within walking distance to Hylands Park and Hylands House for "Rize" Festival and Chelmsford Spectacular every August or just for walking the rest of the year!

We are 2.5 miles to Chelmsford train station or 3 miles to Ingatestone train station both with direct links to Stratford and Central London within 20 minutes. So we have easy access to both Essex and London but are outside the LEZ and are surrounded by countryside.

We also have good road access being situated midway between the A414 and the A12. 

We welcome adults, children and well behaved dogs. Each pitch has electric hook up and plenty of room for an awning if required. There is a stream that runs along the bottom of the field. 

We do not live on site but have an honesty box for payment and are always available by telephone if a member has any problems at all.

Walking distance to Hylands park for "V" Festival every August.

Waste disposal facilities on site.

Weekend Stay

We stayed at Bumpstead’s Cottage CL for 2 nights following lockdown. Access is very easy from either the A12 or A414 although you need to look our for the C&MHC sign otherwise you’ll miss it. It’s a big field for only 5 pitches so you won’t feel hemmed in. The toilet and shower facilities are a credit for this CL, really clean. There’s a bit of noise from the road outside but only from the boy racers. Hylands Parks is only 5 minutes drive away and Chelmsford with all the amenities of a city 10 minutes away.

Lovely Visit

I came to Essex to visit a friend and this was the nearest CL. Easy to find although it could do with a sign as you come round the bed to show that its on the right as it’s not easy to see. I went straight past and luckily there was a roundabout not too far up the road to go round to get back. There were a few other caravans and Motorhomes there. The view of the cows in the field behind was lovely and it was a bonus to have toilets and showers on site. We didn’t use the shower but the toilets were clean and new looking. Sadly, when I went into the left toilet yesterday there were some burn marks on the plastic top of the toilet and a cigarette in the toilet. Not sure if the burns were already there and it was a coincidence about the cigarette but whatever happened it was an awful thing for someone to have done when the toilets look new. Didn’t see the owners as expected but left a cheque with my name on in the letterbox. Would visit again if in the area.

Essex is worth a visit

Graham and Jenny are a great couple and made us feel very welcome. The site was easy to find and in a great location for exploring Essex countryside and Chelmsford. We loved our two weeks stay. We biked into Chelmsford several times from the site along the river via Writtle. We found plenty of countryside walking around the area with plenty of wildlife to be seen too, with a Hare visiting the site most evenings and a Little Owl making its home in one of the trees on site. We enjoyed the area...Well done Essex
