Says what is does on the tin

Rang a few days before booking and friendly gentleman gave me all the info needed. Very easy to find and a good pull in for the caravan and car with a shut gate. Nice and flat and although the grass had a few days growth it wasn't long but lots of bees on the clover. Pitched up easily and the water and toilet emptying point are very good. We got there on a Thursday and no one else these except 2 empty caravans. One family turned up for the weekend then no one else until Tuesday. Mr Sharlott turned up on the Sunday and cut most of the grass but it only needed trimming. Very friendly chap. My husband mended his lawn mower and he gave us 2 days free camping but unfortunately we had to leave. We won't forget that lol. Horses in the next fiield but make sure you don't feed them. Nothing for kiddies to do but run about and have fun. Even though there are wind turbines close by we didn't hear them and it's lovely new quiet. We can recommend the Blue Sari as we had a takeaway and the Bowling Green on the A133. Really central for the whole coast, our favourite being Maldon with the Promenade Park. We will be back and can't understand why it wasn't full. Mr Sharlott has great plans ahead.

Top CL Site

A very easy place to find with the benefit of decent width roads. Excellent location for St Osyths where we were able to take the dogs on the beach and free parking! Well maintained site and a friendly welcome. We will visit again.

A great CL site

Our first visit to Clacton for app. 40 years.We chose this CL for no apparent reason, but certainly glad that we did. A very quite sile which is well kept by the owner. This is probably one of the flattest CLs we have seen.All areas of interest are easily reached . So if you are looking for a warm welcome, a quite CL site with super access this is the one to book. I don't think you will be disappointed. .
