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.

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

Close to Highlands Park

Site very close to Highlands Park which was great for us. They had EHU and Water and usual chem disposal points but the site wasn't very level - slanted down to a stream, although we were spaced out enough that we could move our vans to whichever angle made us level. Unfortunately, we went after about a month of rain which left the site very boggy our fault as we put our van at the bottom of the site nearest the tiny stream as there were lovely trees to shade our two dogs. My son and dogs loved exploring the site, esp the stream. It's a shame that most of England just couldn't seem to get rid of the surface water. So I am looking forward to going back when I didn't have to wear wellies to leave the van. The water taps were nice and high so great if you're like me and have a bad back. There is a small industrial site next door which you occasionally hear them banging around. Never saw the owners but you just put the money through a letterbox. Shame the site in on a bend which, if you miss it, it's miles before you can turn your van around. Definately going back though as it's close to family and Highlands park.

Overbooked

Despite booking well in advance, we were put outside the site on an adjoining field. Site quite industrial and a disappointment.
