Delightful stay

Staying here is so easy. The grounds are immaculately kept and the owners are so accommodating. Walking distance to a good pub, horses in the paddock, failrly level pitches and easy access to water, what more could you ask for. I would happily go back. A real gem and fantastic value for money, well done for showing how it can and should be done. 5*

Lovely Peaceful C.L

Spent 4 very restful nights here in a lovely well looked after field.There is some traffic noise on pitch 1 but not enough to spoil your stay.Water tap easily accessible as was the chemical emptying and clean waste water spread around the hedges.Handy for Harwich ferry and Clacton etc.All in all a 1st class CL and excellent value at £12 a night.

Simply the best

Just spent 4 nights on this wonderful welcoming CL.

 

We have never been to this part of the country before so had a great time exploring 'Constable' countryside and the lovely seaside towns of Walton on the Naze, Frinton on sea and Clacton which was much nicer than we anticipated.

 

Large field with well kept short grass spacious pitches, we were lucky to have the choice of 3 when we arrived including the best of the bunch pitch 5. As we like to be different we pitched in the opposite direction to everyone else and so enjoyed all day sunshine..... not that it was shining too much.

 

Excellent value for money at just £12 per night. We love CLs like this, just a water tap, electric point, lots of space and unregimented. Thanks to the friendly owners with helpful local knowledge and a huge thanks to them for the apples and the plums. Very tasty.

Lovely & Peaceful

A really lovely and peaceful place. It is only a short drive from our house. We decided to have an extra night away on our return home from a few days in Suffolk and I'm really glad we did. We were met by the owner Mrs Sullivan who made us feel very welcome. The scenery is lovely with views of the river Stour. Even though it's close to home we'll be visiting again soon.

Lovely Site

We really enjoyed our two night stay here. We had a friendly welcome on arrival. Very peaceful site but within walking distance for local public houses and bus stop. We had a trip to Harwich for the day lots of history and found a fantastic restaurant called Treo. We will definitely return and highly recommend Kahana

SAVED US!!!!!

To find this site was a total dream !! We was booked into one up the road (STRANGERS HELL HOLE) arrived & left just as quick. The kind man on the phone at Kahana booked us in & we arrived within 5 mins. Upon arrival we was met by a friendly man who laughed at my distress of the last site....which made me smile. Guided us onto one of the 5 pitches in the middle of other campers. It was like driving to heaven. Beautifully kept field overlooking a paddock. Well maintained & excellent hook up & water facilities. Bins for rubbish & toilet disposal well hidden behind hedge. No showers etc but who cares when you have this tranquility & beauty around you. The only real noise we had was from conkers dropping in the night :-). Out & about you are a stones throw from the estuary,if you have a dog they will love it. Walk out the site turn left,top of road turn right, approx 200yds on right turn right down little lane which will take you straight to shore. On a sunny day or evening take a bottle of wine & sit on the bank...beautiful. Avoid at great lengths The Strangers. Rough, Gypseys, Fighting, Kids out of control,Travellers site. But do wonder up to Village Maid which serves food Wed-Sun, great local country pub which welcomes you & the dog. Village shop selling all sorts of essentials. If you want a few nights hideaway in the Essex countryside in friendly surroundings this is the place. We will back for sure.

ABSOLUTELY SUPERB SITE

We stayed 2 nights. On arrival we met by one of the people who run the site who was very friendly and helpful. The site is very spacious, very clean and well kept. The pitches are massive with 16 amp hook ups. The water supply and chemical toilet disposal were well situated and well kept. Everything was just perfect and we will definitely return as soon as possible. Would recommend this site most highly. I should also mention the pub The Village Maid just ten minutes walk from the site into village of Bradfield. Lovely old pub with a great friendly atmosphere from the landlord and staff. Good real ales and the pub food was outstanding. We ate there bothe nights. would recommend you try it.

Perfect in many ways

When reviewing CL's I try to be constructive and point out things that are not quite right or could be better. Well, I'll be damned if I can find anything bad to say about this CL. The grassed area (well mown whenever we've stayed) is large and easily fits 5 outfits (never seen more) with plenty of room between them. All have EHU. They all face a paddock where a few horses may be kept and the front of your outfit is facing east. There is a high hedge behind you and some trees border the 2 sides. The owners live on, in the house behind the fence. You'll find them friendly but not intrusive. The elsan point and bins are just behind the hedge and are very good. The road outside is quiet and the site is usually peaceful. Can't comment about TV reception as we don't use one but WiFi was OK (bring your own!).  There is a pub about 100 yards away but we prefer the other one in Bradfield further into the village (turn left out of the entrance and left again opposite the Strangers pub). Can't remember name of it but about 10 minute walk.  Manningtree is a short cycle or car ride away as is Dedham and Constable country. There is an RSPB reserve nearby (excellent in Spring). Plus this CL is handy for the Harwich ferry. We've stayed here en route quite a few times and it's only a 15 minute drive to the ferry. Also good for a longer stay with plenty to do and see. A thumbs up, in fact both thumbs up.

Lovely well kept site

Great, clean well kept site, peaceful location. Strangers Home Public House just at top of the road, where food and drink could be purchased (although it did get very busy in there). When we visited, the grass was short and plenty of space for us and the other CL visitors.
