Just the ticket!

Once through the gate this proved an ideal site for us. The turn from the road and back onto it is a bit tight with the van on the back and Essex locals are not renowned for their patience but the site itself is exactly right for us. We loved the horses in the next field, the weather was very kind, Colchester town was a couple of miles away and the owners were friendly without being intrusive. It would have been nice to walk the dogs in the adjacent field rather than round the field. Well be back.

Good value

We stayed there back in July and although very good value at £10 a night,it makes this review harder to write as Ella was a lovely lady and the grass was kept well mowed, surrounding area was lovely. The problem we found was Ella's dog Barney was using the campsite to use as a loo and as we were the only other dogs owners there we found ourselves explaining to other campers that it was not our dog mess that was not being picked up. We did let Ella know that this was happening and she said that she would keep an eye on him but she still did not come over and pick up, which sadly I felt let the site down.

Would we go again no.

Yes it is a nice site. Very good for local and further away attractions ie National Trust What lets the site down is the toilet and shower. It does need to be cleaned at least once a day. It was not cleaned once during our recent stay. We will not be going again.

Excellent CL

Level grassy site with easy pitching, although the entrance would be a little narrow for large outfits. Some have been critical of the shower and toilet (there is only one); it may not be beautiful, but it's clean and functional - great value at £10/night. Easy access from the A12: head to Colchester from junc. 28 then take 1st L into Axial Way (sp local traffic).  Next L into Severalls Lane then Langham Rd, then R at T-junc into Straight Rd.  Site is on R just before next junction.  All these roads are good for caravans.

Tight entrance for a large van, very good for visiting around Colchester in easy reach of lots of areas. Would go again but owners dog had free run of the site.
