Very well kept site, attractive towns and villages in the area

Holly Oak Farm
This is a spacious, well kept site, regularly mowed, with facilities well organised. As others have commented, the hook ups are spaced out and I did need to use a second cable. I chose to visit the area from seeing images of the attractive villages and towns with historic buildings, timbered, thatched, or painted numerous different colours, and we were not disappointed. Thaxted is a lovely small town, easily accessible from the site on a quiet road, while Saffron Walden must be one of the loveliest towns in England. We cycled directly from the site on quiet lanes to villages including Great Bardfield and also to Great Dunmow avoiding the main B184. We were aware of aircraft coming in to Stansted every few minutes from early morning to late at night, but did get used to it over the week. I had good contact with Vera while booking our 9 nights but we did not actually meet her until near the end of our stay. At this point Vera was extremely helpful in loaning us a battery charger as we were having problems with the caravan battery.

Great site. A hidden gem.

Holly Oak Farm
This site is just how you imagine a CL to be. Easy access from the road which leads into large field with fruit trees. Bring a long enough lead and you can park where you like. Several EHU points and the waste and fresh water area in the corner. Vera the owner is lovely and likes a good chat. Only ¾ mile from the beautiful unspoilt town of Thaxted. Lots of lovely villages within easy driving distance but don't go to Finchingfield on Sundays as it's full of motorcycles and limited parking. Plenty of walks from the site too. Some road noise and as it's on the flight path for Stansted expect noise from aircraft coming into land. However we soon ignored that. Thoroughly recommend this site and we'll definitely be returning.

Restful

Holly Oak Farm
The other reports said it all, a nice quiet site, we even heard owls at night, If you take 2 power leads you can pitch where you like. Even had a few apples and plums from trees on site. Easy access to the local villages and amenities. Thaxted has a choice of 4 pubs serving food.

Well kept lovely site.

Holly Oak Farm
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.
