Just got back from a very relaxing weekend away at this lovely rural CL. Access is fairly straight forward, with wide openings and lots of room to come and go, finding your way shouldn't prove difficult either. The site looks to have once been an orchard, consisting of mown grass, a few fruit trees while being bounded on all sides by hedging. Pitching is very generous, there are three well space posts with two outlets each, allowing for a great deal of personal space, and if like us you carry a couple of leads you can generally pitch anywhere you like. The very friendly owner told us to do just that, and to not worry about arrival or departure times, mainly because it wasn't at all busy, but it still made for a relaxing break, especially when it came to packing away time. The usual facilities are provided with an additional recycling point, which is always welcome these days. Set in one of the boundary hedges is a pedestrian gate, which leads to a network of footpaths around the area, from where we enjoyed some great walks amongst the North Essex countryside. Nearby Thaxted is a pretty little village, boasting a couple of decent pubs, some shops, a chippy and a petrol station. Some people have mentioned the aircraft noise, but as most people say it really isn't a problem, unless you are trying to be picky that is.
All in all a site to be recommended, if you have dogs, children or are just wanting to get away from it all, you couldn't do much better than choose to stay here.
