Perfect Weekend

We have just returned from a weekend at Saltcote Hall. A beautiful and very well looked after CL site. Friendly owners and clean facilities. Bin area with recycling, toilet and shower room, fresh drinking water, and chemical waste facilities. Plenty of space for the children to run up and down overlooking fields. A peaceful setting only a 10-15 minute stroll to Heybridge Basin with a great enclosed play park, a small river for the dog to splash in and grass area for the dog to run around. You can walk along the basin which made a lovely evening walk. Great local fish and chip shop next to a convenient ASDA and other takeaway/shops. A short drive into Maldon where there is a large pirate ship park, boats, cafes, maze, and shops. Lovely large sunny pitch with electric hook up meters. We set up our wildlife camera and caught the resident Fox and her cub! Children and dogs welcome. A super weekend and only 20mins from our home! We will definitely be back! 5* site. One of the best we have stayed at.

Really nice site.

This is a really nice CL which we will be heading back to soon. The owners were laid back and helpful, the site was clean and very well kept. We were pleased to find it had a loo and shower on site, this was a nice bonus, both were clean and tidy. The shower was 50p for 6 mins which was more than I needed and it was hot. Electric was by metre (£1 coins) and worked out for us just under £2 a day, other people were doing £1. For us £15 with lecy and shower was great! The area is nice with fields and footpaths beside it, and the massive chigborough fishing lakes behind it. A walk across the road leads to Heybridge sea wall and basin, the basin is maybe 20 mins walk and has 2 pubs, both do ale and food, also a tea room. it all gets busy at weekends as it popular. Maldon prom and town is a bit further, with lots of shops and supermarkets. This is a nice bit of everything CL which suits us perfectly.

We love this site

We love this site, it's ideal for us visiting family and as a base for visiting Essex and Suffolk. The pitches and field are well maintained, and if the facilities are basic, they are very clean. We have never found the electric expensive, usually in summer we pay £1 a day and in winter about £2 ,the shower is always lovely and hot and one token usually is plenty. We have many times paid more than £12 a night for sites that don't even have toilets and showers. We have only ever been treated with helpfulness and friendliness by Andy and Karen. We look forward to visiting regularly.

Great CL site position for exploring Maldon

We found this site to be ideal for exploring nearby Maldon both on foot and by cycle, there is a footpath that links the site to Maldon and also one that follows the nearby canal which is also worth a visit. The site was well maintained and the toilet and shower an unexpected bonus on a CL site, the owner was very knowledgeable about the local area having been born in the nearby village. We considered at £12 a night this to be very good value for money compared to similar sites we have used before and we would certainly return again in our motor-home.

Basic and expensive but quiet and lots to see and do

We definitely have mixed feelings about this site but overall would not come back. At £12 a night its an average cost for a CL (but from our experience this usual includes electric hock-up). We knew electric was coin operated but not how much this would cost, and how much this bumps the price up. We stayed on site for 5 nights, and due to the cost of the electric we ran our fridge, heating & water on gas - so the only things on electric were the TV, lights and occasional cooking, a few times we watched the meter and it was spinning really fast. The cost averaged out at £5 a night for electric and then the cost of the gas which would have been another £2 to £3 pound a night meant it cost us between £19 & £20 a night - we could stay on a caravan club site with all the luxury they offer for pretty much the same cost. Definitely not good value. As others have said the toilets are very basic, no soap, only cold water, no way to dry your hands and loo roll sometimes! When it was replaced the owners only ever left 1 role for the 10 adults on site (the site was full each night we stayed) (we just took our own rather than get caught short). There are also no lights round the toilet block so very bleak if visited after dark (bring a torch). The showers were 50p which from what others said required 2 x 50p to allow enough time for a proper shower. The washing up sink again had no hot water, so difficult to get things clean. The site was fine, close to a lot of places of interest, museums, various water ways, the Basin, pubs, shopping and lovely restaurants, we liked the area and would definitely come back but alas not to this site.
