Great friendy welcome from Cheryl & Graham,. Site very clean and well maintained. Even with a rally on site it was still very peaceful. Will definitely be going back.

Pleasant surroundings, friendly and helpful host.

Stayed here for a week visiting relatives. There are plenty of footpaths close to the site taking you in to Maldon where there are shops and a park with activities for children. Walking through fields or along the coastline. Handy for visiting Northey Island (National Trust - call first for permit only accessible at low tide). Plenty of shops in Maldon including a good supermarket. Bus service to Maldon although it is walkable, about 2.5 miles. Electricity topped up by owner with card, £5 or £10. £10 lasted us the week not much heating required when we were there. Enjoyed our stay!

Wouldn't stay again

The sign with arrows showing where to pitch is attached to a large gate. The gate swings and can be left open. On arrival we looked at the sign and the directions were 90 degrees out, consequently we went the wrong way. Who I assume was the owner talked to me like I was stupid. I think we all know who the stupid one is; the one who put the direction sign on a swinging gate. There really is no need to be rude. Footpath overgrown and impassable to Maldon. Walking down the road has no footpath and fast moving traffic. Basicly without transport you are stuck here. No buses available when we were there.

This is a nice little site, and in a good location if you want to drive to places. If you enjoy a walk to local amenities/pubs etc its not for you. The owners were friendly and helpful enough and despite the card meter for electric it didn't cost too much. The showers we didn't use as it seemed they were shared by the local garage. There are sites in the area which are much better overall than this site !!

Stayed here in October 2012 and although it's not a bad site with a bus stop right outside the entrance, there was a few vans that looked like they were long term on site, like people with local work. Another thing - be careful when using the electric metering system on this site, it could cost you a small fortune, especially if you plan to stay for a while. This was our experience and when questioned about it the owner just said that it was checked regularly and that was that. Just be careful.

Mundon Essex

Arrived to find a CC Club rally on same field as CL. Approximately 30 vans. Some members had visitors on the Saturday including children who played football. Quite a lot of noise both by road and air traffic, overhead noise started before 0600. Potentially quite a nice site, but too many interruptions.
