Why stay here ...

The Courts Campsite is a secure caravan and motorhome site, exclusively for Caravan and Motorhome Club members. Here you will enjoy 5 hard standing fully serviced pitches open all year round.

Set in the serene woodlands of Little Baddow, The Courts Campsite is the perfect break away from the hustle of day-to-day life. Step out of your motorhome or caravan straight into nature and head off for the multitude of woodland walks and forest rambles. Get on your bike and head for an off-road adventure through the trees and shrubbery. Embrace all that nature has to offer from regional birds, rabbits, foxes and badgers. Sit back and listen to the local wildlife. Visit the local lock for boat rides, canoeing and paddle boarding. For those looking for a more relaxing activity visit the tea rooms and pubs that are in the vicinity.

The Courts Campsite is based in Little Baddow, a small village located in Essex. Despite its rural setting, it is close to several larger towns and cities, including Maldon and Chelmsford.

Great stay

The Courts
What a very pleasant stay, ease of arrival and great directions from Paul. The site is truly a great place to visit Very well laid out, the fully serviced pitches are a real pleasure and make setting up on arrival extremely easy. The site is any easy 30 minute walk from Paper mill lock and tea rooms. We will most definitely be visiting again

Second visit as good as the first!

The Courts
Although we live just a few miles away The Courts is a treat. Paul and Collette are very welcoming, the site is so well maintained and there’s much to do locally. Also, unlike many sites, the WiFi is brilliant, we were able to stream TV with no problems at all. I’m sure we’ll visit again soon.

Warm welcome from the owner and his wife who are experienced motorhomers who have designed there CL site to their specifications. Fully serviced hard standings and free Wi-Fi. It is impossible to rate this site too highly and I will certainly be back

What a great site

The Courts
From the first contact with Paul to book from leaving a first-class experience. The site is fantastic, and the pitches are huge. Walks from the site are excellent, with plenty of countryside around. Dog walking heaven. A pub that is very dog friendly and has wonderful food 2 minutes up the road. We will definitely be back. Thanks Paul
