As of 2013 the Elms Caravan & Camping Park has now closed down, due to the Retirement of the owners, and it will no longer be used for caravan and camping holidays.

We have visited this site a few times now and have always found the owners to be helpful. The site is small but not cramped and the toilets and shower block are always clean and tidy. This is definitely a no frills site but does have a small shop with very limited supplies. The surrounding forest area is great for walks and the local pub (next door) does great food and is only a few minutes walk away.

The site is quiet and peaceful and although the policy helicopter base in next door this didn't affect our enjoyable stay at this site.

Would definitely return here.

Having visited this site previously ( 3 other times ) we have found the site to be run down this time. The standard of facilities was poor and the site unkempt. The shower and toilet block was in a poor state of repair and in need of a good clean. The shower heads were not on holders and did not work very well. The CDP and Waste water points are not marked and when found were at the back of a static caravan. The grass was uncut and hedges overgrown. The pitches were not clearly marked and were very close together. There was ample electricity points around the site but you had to be careful as the middles of the site was for tents and cables stretched across the road around the site. The area is ideal for visiting London and the surrounding Epping Forest is beautiful.

We have just returned from The Elm’s and despite a number of negative reviews, we thought it was pretty okay.

No it isn’t a Caravan Club site, but try getting into to one of these on October half term!

A bit ramshackle but Pat & Terry make up for this by being great mine hosts.

This site is really handy for travelling into central London. Terry puts you right on the 5 min trip to Loughton tube station, but park at the station for £4.50 a day. The free street parking is a good walk away and after a day in the city…………well you’ll see.

Yes, there is a police helicopter station nearby, but this didn’t bother us. I guess it depends on how much a light sleeper you are. Myself, I really enjoyed watching all the airliners coming into Stanstead both night and day. As they are throttling down, they are no bother.

Great wildlife. We were treated to a fallow deer stag strutting right in front of us on a journey home – magnificent! The foxes are brazen – so too are the squirrels. You are in the forest and this is great.

So overall not a site I would wax lyrical about – but not one I would advise to avoid either.

If you expect Caravan Club standards everywhere – well you are limited to the network. Go “of piste” and you may find a bit of a gem like The Elms and Pat & Terry. Happy hunting.

The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, but for us it ends there. We found them to be packing them in on an overgrown field. Largely continental visitors, mainly tents and the facilities were overstretched. It is getting very run down.

The toilets and showers were grubby and mildewy. Chemical disposal area is extremely cramped behind a static, overgrown and difficult to access. In wet weather, the wooden board path was just dangerously slippy.

Fresh water from a long hose which trails on the ground and wooden board and onto which people were disposing of their waste water, there are no signs advising where to dispose of waste water. One to avoid in our opinion.

Just back from a weekend at this little gem!

Arrived to a wonderful greeting from the owners who gave us lots of info.

As we have a campervan we took a taxi into Loughton to catch the tube (the owner rang for us!)cost £5.50 The tube into London took about 30 mins on Saturday but there was chaos on Sunday as the Central line was closed and we had to take a bus part of the way- the trip took over an hour!

The campsite it in the middle of Epping Forest and at night you could hear the owls. Did hear the police helicopter but only a couple of times and certainly couldn't hear any noisy roads! In fact it was very peaceful. Good showers, clean loos, and we thought the gates and chains made it nice and secure, We wished we had stayed longer to explore the forest - no doubt we will go back!
