We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting friends and relatives nearby. Booking was straightforward, and a deposit was paid by card, but the owner is not always present, so you get a gate code. However, no-one told us about the button at the bottom of the lock which was frustrating, particularly as it was raining at the time, and my outfit was sticking out into the road a little. Approaching from the Rochford side, it is very easy to miss the entrance, so, once you are past The Lawns, take it gently. The site has a slight slope which looked (in the rain) as if it might have been a little too steep to get my Bessie 550 GL level, so we parked at the far end and were very happy. There is a main road by the entrance, but right up the far end it was very quiet. I would probably return again if we are visiting friends in the area.
