A long weekend away in Essex!

Saltcote Hall
Saltcote Hall CL in Heybridge, Maldon in Essex Great little site ! Stayed for four nights, pay for electric by the meter which was no problem and hardly used a £1 daily, so don’t worry..The entrance is nearly opposite a lane that takes you to the River Chelmer Blackwater navigation, and the car park is free where you can launch your kayak,sup or canoe or walk along the river bank. Fab pub and river cafe too Not far to Mersea Island if you fancy the coast 🛶 Very relaxing 😌

Good well located site

Saltcote Hall
The site is well located a short walk from Maldon and Heybridge. I was initially concerned about metered electricity but used less than £4 over three nights. There was noise in the afternoons and early evening from a nearby sports club but nothing too intrusive. We didn’t use the toilet or shower so can’t comment on those but the site itself is well kept and level. I can recommend the lock tea rooms and the Jolly Sailor in Heybridge and the Barge tea room in Maldon. The Thames barge trip was good fun.

Great little site for a short break

Saltcote Hall

We've just returned from a 4-night stay at Salcote Hall - an ideal location from which to catch up with friends and family in Maldon (where we lived many moons ago). A delightful, well tended CL with grass pitches (we had a call on our way there to let us know which pitch we should use, as two pitches were waterlogged). Made to feel very welcome, and visited routinely each morning by the bunnies and the ducks. Had plenty of £1 coins at the ready for the electric meter, but used less than £2 each day, despite having the heater on each evening. For visitors new to the area, I can recommend the Lock Tea Room and Jolly Sailor pub at Heybridge Basin (free car park at Daisy Meadow), the Queen's Head on the quayside in Maldon and the Chequers Inn at nearby Goldhanger - dating back to the 15th century with a varied history as a smuggler's haunt, coach house and alehouse - and some of the best pub food in the area. Fresh local produce is a short walk away at Jacobs Farm (including yummy Tiptree strawberries). (Note for CMC - this CL is listed incorrectly on your website as Saltcote Hall, so Salcote Hall cannot be found on your search engine).

Very nice CL in great location.

Saltcote Hall
We spent 3 days on this CL which is in a great location for visiting local attractions. Very warm welcome on arrival to this very nicely kept CL. Toilet and shower closed due to covid but we always use own facilities so no problem to us. Metered Electricity a great idea as you pay for what you use. Water heater, low wattage kettle, fridge, batt and phone charger just £1 a day for us. Would definitely visit again thank you.
