Why stay here ...
The Boxted CL site is a family run site set in 5 acres of land. The caravan site itself is approximately 0.5 acres. The site is run by Ties and Kate, and we have a dog (Barney), two horses (Cally and Checky), and several chickens.
Boxed is a village located approximately 4 miles north of Colchester, North East Essex. The village is surrounded by areas of farmland. The River Stour flows through the village, providing the boundary between Essex and Suffolk. Old Boxted falls within Dedham Vale, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
Close to the site is Dedham Vale Vineyard, which hosts regular events throughout the summer, and wine tasting tours.
The site is within easy access from the A12, which provides links to London, Suffolk and Norfolk. London Stansted airport is approximately a 50 minute drive.
Opposite the site is McLaughlin's Fruit Farm which offers fruit picking in the summer months, and fresh local produce, including vegetables and eggs. Also in close proximity is Fillpotts Garden Centre, which has a cafe, and also sells local produce.
Within easy reach are the Essex coastline such as Mersea Island, Walton and Frinton beaches, and Southend on Sea.
Other local places of interest include: Colchester Town (which has a lot of Roman history), Beth Chatto Gardens, Dedham and Flatford (Constable country), Colchester Stadium, Colchester Zoo, Layer Marney Tower, Colchester Arts Centre, the Mercury Theatre, Castle Park, High Woods Country Park, Colchester Park and Castle, and Bourne Mill.
The site itself provides 5 pitches on grass with electrical hook ups. Upon entry to the site, there is a padlocked gate straight ahead which leads to the caravan field. The combination for the padlock is changed regularly and will be provided upon booking. The site is open all year round, but is not suitable in particularly wet weather. Upon arrival, please head straight into the field and make yourself at home.
There is an on-site toilet and shower and recycling facilities. The shower is operated by a coin meter and is £1.
Dogs are welcome on the site, however, we would ask that dogs are kept on a lead where possible please.
The entrance to the site can be a tight turn, especially when coming from the Boxted Village, though access from the A12 will usually bring you from the other direction.
Please note that the site is currently undergoing renovation throughout 2018 and 2019. This will include improvements to the toilet and shower block. Prices are £10 per night with electricity and £8 without electricity, though this will increase in 2019, price TBC.
