 We were allocated a pitch near the facilities as I am blind.

The pitch was sloping greatly.

I can only comment on the accessible shower/toilet room but it was clean although a little dated. I wish would these places would put a soap tray or basket in the shower area. It is so annoying to put shampoo and soap on the floor and then struggle to find it.

The site has a good motorhome point which was useful to us.

A bonus to us was that we were allowed to have a supermarket delivery to our vehicle. Waitrose for those interested.

All in all a clean and well organised site. It was quiet but there again it is December.

 Facilities were very well maintained and clean.

Staff friendly.

Dog walking area was a thin short wood stretch not exactly a dog walk area but thanks to another visitor they directed us across the road to an amazing open area where my older children play games and the dog could run around.

Lively open site just a shame about the road noise, even though I was prepared for it and I live on a main road it was a constant noise day and night.

Was in a great place to visit lots of attractions. We visited Brightlingsea, Colchester and the priory ruins.

Local shops nearby.

Reviewer: Btove3 1 review from this member

 We planned a trip that was local and had been recommended this site by friends who had visited before, for its location. I had grandchildren with me and we wanted to go into Colchester and also had tickets to the Zoo.

We found the park to be clean and friendly and inviting, there are full timers there who were very welcoming to us travelling campers.

Unfortunately not all the facilities were open due I guess to the pandemic but those that were were very well appointed and clean. There was a lovely modern play area where my grandchildren spent a lot of time.

The only down side to this site is that you can hear the 12, as they are very near but I new this before I booked so obviously I was well prepared for traffic noise, however, it didn't bother us at all but good to know in advance, it was actually another reason for booking as access was excellent.

I am sure I will visit again.

Reviewer: Windingdown 12 reviews from this member

 This is a very convenient site and as such does have some road noise which as we’d stayed before we expected. Staff were very welcoming and helpful.

We had booked a hardstanding pitch with hookup for £22. Prior to being shown our pitch we filled up with fresh water and were shown the drive over grey water disposal point. We were on pitch 99 and had we been staying longer or the weather poor we might have asked to move as a large tree opposite blocked the sat dish signal. The toilets were kept very clean.

Can’t comment on child facilities as not applicable to us.

The walk into Colchester took about 1 hour where we visited the shops and park. We booked a table at the Lexdon Crown at the top of the road but unfortunately there were no type of roasts left on the Sunday menu and we didn’t fancy burger, pie or fish/chips so walked back to the MH and had beans on toast - delicious.

 This was an ideal location for us as we were visiting family in Lexden Colchester. The only drawback is the sound of traffic on the road nearby.

The site is easy to find and the grounds are well kept. The staff are very helpful. The layout of the site is good.

The toilet blocks are neat and clean. Shower is excellent.

If it has a downside it is noise from the nearby road. We walked into Colchester from the site

Reviewer: Tj parker 1 review from this member

 Liked:- cleanliness, multiple shower blocks, helpful staff, accessibility to places.

Disliked:- Road noise. The site is only 50yds max from the A12. Busy road 24hrs a day. Even at 2/3am you can be woken by heavy traffic.

All children's play facilities taped off even though you could take your kids to the park up the road. (don't know if that was a camping law)

 Lovely site. Pitches are well marked and maintained. On arrival we were shown to our allocated pitch.

The toilet and showers blocks were all open and were spotlessly clean. Lovely hot showers.

The staff were really nice and very helpful.

Only downside to the site is the passing traffic however it would not put me off staying here again.

It's a short drive to the zoo, indoor swimming pool with slides, crazy golf, Colchester castle and town so there's plenty of choice for things to do.

 Stayed last week for 2 nights. Super site and wonderful staff. Helped when step jammed.

Bus service conveniently local and very regular.

The staff even organised a rain shower in the hot weather.

Reviewer: Heathe 1 review from this member

 Liked the site very much, but the road noise was a bit too much for us. It went on all night and heavy lorries woke us up.

Couldn't fault the site, clean and tidy, staff were friendly and efficient, showers and loos cleaned regularly.

Such a shame about the traffic noise or we would have rated a lot higher.

We didn't find the "country park", but then we were only there for one night.
