So good, I stayed longer!

I stayed here in July, when i was on my way to Constable county, but never got there.  I had the site to myself and the weather was superb!  I was struck down with a tummy bug, but as the site was so relaxing, tranquil and beautiful, I decided to stay to get over the bug.  I'm glad I did, as it gave me more time to enjoy the location and nearby village.

Do not listen to Essex Lady

Visited this CL late September 2014 and found it to be well kept and peaceful. I had read the reviews beforehand and was nearly put off by EssexLady, thankfully I am capable of making up my own mind. The aeroplane noise was hardly audible and infrequent so I can only assume that EssexLady had had a little too much to drink before putting fingers to keyboard or had amnesia. This is a lovely site one of the best I have stayed in all season. You will not be disappointed it you visit.

BRILLIANT CL BUT EXTREEMELY NOISEY!

As has been said by others the facilities are superb, the site is immaculate and the owner is a lovely lady. The site is within easy walking distance of Thaxted - about 20 minutes. We recommend the beer and food in the Maypole. The site has direct access to a fantastic network of footpaths, one walk of about two miles will bring you to the hamlet of Monk Street and the Farmhouse Inn, its the best pub food we've ever had! The major problem here is noise, The site is almost directly below the final approach into Stansted Airport and the aircraft are only around 2,000 feet high at this point. In fact we were stood outside Thaxted Church and couldn't hear the bells at midday due to aircraft. They come over about every three minutes. Also the road is noisy. Also at the time of our visit an aspiring pop group who could neither sing play guitar or drums were trying out their new mega loud electric speakers for hours on end a few doors away. If you like noise you will like it here. For visitors arriving from the South on the 184 do not follow the signs to Bardfield until you come down the steep hill into Thaxted or you could go wrong several times.

One of the Best

Our favourite CL of them all. Easy to find, good access, large sheltered pitches each with hook up. Lots of things to see and do in the locality. Footpaths adjacent to the site with easy walks to Thaxted with its many proper shops and historical buildings. Good and safe cycling along the mostly flat country lanes - a ride to Finchingfield to enjoy an afternoon tea by the village green is a must! Pitches are round the outside of the site leaving a very large space in the middle - this is a good site for children and dogs alike! Over the years we have stayed on many CLs - This is a real delight and out absolute favourite, we measure all others by this CL!
