Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Lovely pitches.  Not laid out rigidly.  This is a nice big field with hook-ups all around.

Is there water on each pitch?            

No – but the tap is easily accessible.

What is the electric like?           

16A – excellent



What’s the site access like?        

Good, off of Water Lane

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                              Good –  1 shower room, with toilet and sink (£1 for the shower) + a ladies and gents separate toilet.                                                                                                                                                    Toilet paper provided? Yes, and plenty of spare kept available.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Showers:                          Looked perfectly acceptable, although we didn’t use it.

What other facilities are there?    

Chemical waste disposal. Rubbish bins.  Farm shop and kitchen.  There is also a ‘crazy barn’ on site (useful if you’ve got little ones).

None of this affected us in any way.

If you follow the footpath past the farmshop you come to a lane.  A little further along there is a open grassy area which looked lovely.

Close to a bus-stop (almost in front of the site) and train stations (withing 20 minutes walk).

No. No internet

Very welcoming and friendly.

How much is it?     

We paid £18 per night                                    

What’s the area like?            

Good.  Good transport links.  There’s a pub within about 5 minutes walk.  Shops are probably a car drive away though.


More detail:

The Good:-

Nice location.  Good to see the owner call someone out for driving too fast into the car park.  The farm shop and the kitchen

The Bad:-

Nothing really

 The Ugly:-

Nothing at all 😊

Moving On:

We moved on to Essex, D’Arcy Equestrian (a Camping and Caravanning certificated site).  If we had had more time here we would have visited Chelmsford, and definitely Tiptree.
