Well kept lovely site.

Beautiful well kept site, short grass (looks like someones lawn at the entrance to the field)! Lots of trees and birds and the odd deer! Everything kept neat and tidy including the recycling centre and rubbish bins. Lots of space for the grandchildren to run around. Aeroplanes were absolutely no problem at all. Will definitely be back.

Spot On!

The recent reviews say it all really. We stayed for five nights recently as an end of season break. Yes, there were aircraft coming in for Stansted but they were interesting to watch and made no noise worth mentioning, so not a problem for us. The CL and its surroundings are kept in very good condition and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - full credit to Mrs Sorrell. Easy access to public footpaths and good for those who like to walk their dog in the countryside. Thaxted is about 20 minutes' walk using the road and it is well worth visiting. The church is remarkable for a large village in a rural setting.

Only an overnighter

We only booked the day before but Mrs Sorrell was very helpful and friendly. We popped in to Thaxted on the way to the site and can recommend a stroll through the little town with its ancient guild hall, windmill, quaint alms houses and Dick Turpins Cottage. We had a very reasonable meal in the Swan pub, opposite the church. There is also the added bonus of a free car park, with a dedicated area for motorhomes/caravans - thank you Thaxted Parish Council! Wished we had more time at Holly Oak Farm, it was peaceful and in a lovely location. There looked to be plenty of footpaths for a great walk. We certainly hope to go back next year, for a little longer.

Brilliant little site

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.
