Lovely stay

This is a lovely CL set in beautiful countryside well away from any traffic. Plenty of room for each pitch and gets the sun all day in the spring/summer. Didn't see the owners but went to the house to pay and they seemed friendly enough. Other people on the site said they just left everyone to get on with it themselves but were lovely people and not obtrusive unless you needed help. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

A Heavenly Spot

The approach to this site is down a long private lane through the wheat fields so it turned out to be the ultimate in peace and quiet. The site is beautifully kept although the toilet facilities, which are obviously provided for the farm workers, are a bit basic. It was a joy to walk the dog as there is no traffic close to the site and the views are amazing. The village shop is very friendly and has all the necessaries and we had a great meal in The Village Maid where we were able to use the free wifi. This site is a perfect stop for the ferries at Harwich and Mr Whitworth is charming and helpful without being obtrusive.

Lovely site for a few days of peace & quiet.

A great site to stay for a few nights to chill out & recharge your batteries. Basic facilities, not a problem when you have your own in the caravan. Excellent value for money, with elec included. Only five pitches so, well spaced out. Wrabness Nature Reserve & Flatford Mill are well worth a visit from here.

A good, no-nonsense CL

Handy for Harwich and the seaside resorts of Clacton and Frinton. Easy to find although I recommend approaching on the shorter access road as there is limited passing space. Two hard standing pitches on 'wasteland' with water point and ehu points. Grass pitches offer several options on where to pitch and most are flat. Toilet is best described as a traditional 'netty' in an outside building [we had to take our own toilet paper]. Pleasant owners who let you enjoy your time. Plenty of wildlife on site, especially birds.

Quiet and peaceful site

This is a lovely site, the owners are unobtrusive nice people and as others have said you may think you have the field to yourself as due to the shape it can hide at least three pitches from sight.  As it is a grass it can get rather wet, but what do you expect in England; there are two hard standings if you doe not think you have the traction to pull your van off a wet field. The toilet is basic and if that is what you expect (and take your own loo roll with you) it is dry warm and good hot water. On this site you can enjoy the wildlife with peace and quiet. The nearest pub, the Village Maid in Bradfield does nice and expensive food.

A Nice Site

A very peaceful site. Easy access to and from the site even with a T/A and room to manoeuvre on site. The toilet and washing facilities are very basic but as we use our own onboard facilities it wasn't a problem. Had a very nice meal in The Cross Inn pub at Horsley Cross. There is a large coop in Manningtree town. From there you can walk along the river to Flatford Mill. Didn't see the owner until we knocked at the house to settle up before we went, but that doesn't bother us. The site is well off the road down a farm track so it felt quite secure as the only passing traffic was to the farm house which is also a B & B although part of the site is hidden from view from the track.

Lovely site, handy for the ferry

This is a very tidy, well-maintained CL site, with lots of room for space between pitches, and laid out so you don't even see most of the other (2 or 3 out of 5). Very quite, easy to access, tidy toilet.  We stayed at a different CL site on our way to the Harwich ferry because it was a little closer, but it had no power (which our leisure battery didn't cope with), long grass, road noise, and a very basic toilet. From now on we will instead stay at this CL, Dairy Farm, as it is so much better!

Handy for the Harwich ferry

It's neatly maintained, and has more than enough space for 5 caravans, with electric points well spaced around the field. The directions to find it are clear, and quickness of access for an early morning Harwich ferry (what we really wanted) is a plus, and there is bed and breakfast accommodation in the farmhouse for anyone travelling that way without a caravan. Knowing we'd be leaving early we went to the house to pay the night before - the camp site is certainly run with gentlemanly trust of its visitors. We found it thoroughly satisfactory for an overnight, but wouldn't stay for longer than that - we prefer smarter toilet/washing facilities than the basics this site provides (in an oldish outhouse) - but we fully understand that other Club members with more luxurious caravans than ours are happy to use their own facilities.
