Beautiful Site

We enjoyed a lovely week staying on this site. It was beautifully kept with loads of room. Trees and all mown grass made a lovely setting. The owners were very friendly as well.

Beautiful little Gem

We spent 3 nights staying at Old house Farm and what a lovely place it was. We were made very welcome by the owners who were very friendly. The site is well kept with the grass mowed regularly. Plenty of full grown trees and shrubs allowing for shelter and bird life. We shall certainly be back again

A Very Pleasant Site

We stayed here for 8 nights in April and really enjoyed our stay.  Plenty of space for everyone and the site is beautifully maintained. Railway Museum within walking distance and there are plenty of places to visit.  Great walks for the dog in open fields on footpaths just outside the site without even getting in the car. Recommended.

One of the best.

We spent 18 nights on this lovely CL from 11th May 2013. Everything about this site and its owners was perfect and a credit to the owners. I rate this site 10 out of 10. The grass does get a little boggy in wet weather at the bottom of the site near the pond. The water to the toilet and chemical disposable failed meaning we had to carry water from the fresh water tap to clean our caravan toilet unit after emptying it, but was a little worried after discovering this problem thinking we might lose the fresh water too and the owners were not contactable for some reason for the last five days of our stay, but thankfully the fresh water remained on. Thank you to the owners for keeping the site in a near perfect condition for us Campers.

Loads of room.

We got a very warm welcome from Keith the CL site owner. The grass had been freshly cut when we arrived and the site is well looked after. There is plenty of room to set up so you’re not on top of each other, and more than ample 16amp electric posts to keep everyone happy. A small lake which looks like a quiet pleasant place to sit and watch the fish swim by is now out of bounds, a party of people staying on the site decided to trash the lake and throw rocks at the fish. These stupid people have ruined it for the rest of us that would have enjoyed the serenity of the lake. A small one and two carriage train branch line runs beside the site but did not disturb us at all. If you turn left out of the site and over the small railway bridge there is a public footpath which leads beside a couple of fields and then in one direction through a wooded area which is maintained by Essex County Council. Where the path passes over muddy areas they have put wooden walkways so wellies or walking boots not always necessary unless the weather is really wet then the fields will be a bit mucky. The other direction takes you over the train line. The land owner (not the CL owner) although a nice enough bloke, does not always keep his dogs under control. The dogs are friendly but try to make themselves at home in your awning and snuffle your dog’s food if you’re not careful. There was one minor incident whilst we were there. The water to the toilet stopped working, which meant that we had to fetch a bucket of water from the drinking water tap (thank goodness this was still working) to flush the toilet. To be fair to Keith the CL owner he had gone away for the Bank Holiday weekend so could not do anything about it. I can only assume it was something minor but we had left before he returned so did not know the outcome or the reason. Apart from the little hiccough with the water I would recommend this site to anyone. On the whole a most enjoyable break on a pleasant site

Spacious

Lovely green spacious part sloping site. Walks/Dog walks available off site from farm entrance. Small single clean WC. Mostly quiet, occasional light road/train noise and some tooting from steam trains from adjacent railway museum on steam weekends. Occasional agricultural noise. Adjacent to railway branch line (doesn't run at night) Railway station, one change for London. Reasonable access. Friendly owners. Dog friendly. Overall a beautiful, clean, friendly site ideal for visiting Colchester and surrounding Lovejoy country. Recommend a torch, very dark walk from the village pub.
