Peaceful - it is not.

We stayed on this site for 2 weeks. Unfortunately the details given are not quite as it seems. It is anything but 'peaceful'. It sits just off an extremely busy road that has constant traffic with very often emergency services 'screaming by. There is I'm afraid the drone of cars passing at just about all times. It actually is quite difficult to join the road as the site entrance sits on a bend and it isn't always easy to see each way before pulling out - particularly with the caravan on tow, when you need a bit extra time to get across the road. The paintball in truth wasn't really a problem and took place in the woods just behind where the caravan pitches are. The thing that became a nuisance was when on many days the 'clay pigeon' shooting took place. One the Saturday during our stay it went on for over 4 hours until we just had to go out to get away from the banging sounds. Another thing that was disappointing was that again during the middle of our stay there were in fact 6 vans on this site. Had we needed or wanted to move on we were unable as we were blocked in by a trailer tent. The estates manager did confirm later that he had noticed more than 5 vans but didn't do anything about it - so all a bit disappointing really. The local area though we loved having never been to Essex before -so we would return but sadly not to this particular site.
