Why stay here ...
Our CL is on a 350 acre farm which is a working arable farm but run with wildlife and horses in mind. We have a family of four sons one of whom is eventing full time hence the equestrian facilities including a cross country course which is available for hire.
The CL site is located next to the horse dressage area in a quiet, small grass field enclosed by hedges. There are 5 hard standing pitches all with their own electric (16 amp) and water supplies. Pitches 1 and 2 are extra large and level and suitable for RV's and/or caravans. Each pitch is wide enough for your awning to be on the hard standing.
Adults, children and pets are all welcome (although please do not allow dogs to roam the woods as there are nesting birds). There is access to toilets in the Farm Buildings. All waste disposal and rubbish disposal is available in the corner of the site next to the recycling bin by the entrance to the field. It is sometimes possible to bring horses or ponies by prior arrangement.
We are in a very quiet area (designated as an 'area of outstanding natural beauty') just outside the village of Arkesden. We are half way between junctions 8 and 10 of the M11 (there is no junction off at 9!) very close to the market town of Saffron Walden and Audley End House. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is 15 mins away. There are several public golf courses nearby and trout and coarse fishing available in the village.
The Axe and Compass pub in the village is extremely popular and very good, has been run by the same family for the last 20 years, and is a 10 minute walk from the farm. There are numerous other good pubs locally including a Thai pub in the next village. Booking is recommended for all of them particularly at weekends.

We've just returned home from this lovely site in rural Essex. We found it very easily following the owner's directions (SatNav wanted to take us off the main road earlier, but we resisted!) The entrance to the site is up a very straight, tree lined road with automatic gates at the top. The pitches are well spaced out with plenty of room and all pretty level. The pitches are all electric (of course) but each one has its own water supply, which is wonderful. There are stunning views from the site and it's really peaceful, with just the pheasants to break the quiet. We will definitely return. Motorhomers from Kent
