Why stay here ...

We are a friendly family run small holding with 17 lovely alpacas, chickens, running ducks, family dog and cat, all waiting to meet you. Our CL is flat on half an acre with three hard standing pitches and two grass pitches, all with electric hookups. We have opened the CL as a legacy to my parents who caravan with the Middlesex group for over 50 years. Caravanning was a very big part for me growing up playing on fields etc.. with my brothers. We have seasonal produce to buy as well as our fresh free range eggs.

Perfect Peaceful Base.

An easy to find CL directly located on A12 and well signed. We were welcomed by Julie and John on arrival and directed to the pitch. The site has 3 hard stands to the rear and 2 grass to the left. The facilities, water, waste etc are well located and easy to access as is a shed with advice and leaflets on the surrounding area. We were introduced to the Alpacas including the babies by Julie that were inquisitive and definite characters. We stayed on the CL for 12 days and had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Would definitely recommend this site and look forward to our next visit.

A lovely site run by a lovely couple with a family of alpacas!

This CL site is owned by a very friendly couple with a family of beautiful alpacas. The site itself is very quiet considering it's just off the A12. A short walk takes you to a Budgeons, a nursery and a cafe. The best part for us was being able to watch the alpacas and Julie will happily show campers her vast family of alpacas, chickens etc. A thoroughly recommended site.
