The nicest people

The Lodge
I stayed on this site during the Covid lockdown and Paul and Caren are the nicest CL owners I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The site itself is a little gem with facilities that are really excellent. I obviously couldn’t use the WC block but I did use the washing machine and dryer. There is electric and water at each pitch. The location is peaceful on the edge of Colchester with plenty of walks and good cycling.

Lovely site

The Lodge
We stayed 2 nights 9/10 June 2021. Lovely peaceful site with own water tap and electric meter. Colchester about 3 miles away. Caron and Paul made us welcome and are a nice friendly couple. One of the best CL sites we’ve stayed on, especially good value.

Excellent.

The Lodge
We have just returned after having spent a lovely week on this excellent cl site. We were welcomed by Caron who offered to make us a hot drink. What a lovely way to be greeted. Caron’s husband Paul then came and explained the metered electric, which was easy and inexpensive. The site is well laid out, level, & well kept, and with your own tap on each pitch was another added bonus. The toilets were also clean and plenty of hand sanitisers provided. This site offers extremely good value for money and the accommodating owners Paul & Caron made our stay here extremely enjoyable. Many thanks Paul & Caron. We would highly recommend this site.

'RESTFUL'

The Lodge
On a main road this site has a good entrance but is best approached from Colchester with a caravan. Road noise wasn't obtrusive. The owners are pleasant and helpful. Spacious fully serviced pitches with electric meter which worked out for us about £1 60 per day, there is a charge for a groundsheet of £1 50 per day. Some pitches are better than others although fairly flat. At one end of the site there is a clean well kept toilet portakabin (own sink plugs required) with sanitizer etc because of covid 19, in there is site information and at the far end there is a shed with a washing machine and tumble dryer also there are books which can be borrowed or exchanged. Wifi is free for 30 mins a day provided by camping connect. The coast isn't too far away and we can recommend Youngs for fish and chips at Frinton on Sea and eaten in the nearby park!!.

Peaceful stay at Colchester

The Lodge

Lovely peaceful site, located south of Colchester. Plenty of space and with the added benefit of water at each pitch and separate male/female WC's. Recommended for either short stay to/from ferry or longer stay in the Essex / Suffolk area
