 Lovely site “a hidden gem” beautiful quiet, peaceful, very clean. The site is constantly monitored by the owners who travel around the lakes every couple of hours to check if everyone is happy.

Lots of garden toys for younger children to keep them occupied while the adults relax.

There is a nice pub within walking distance although the path is very overgrown with brambles so road walking is required, the road is not that busy but the cars travel fast along it so be careful.

We would definitely return to this site as it is now one of our favourites

 Had a lovely stay here this week. It was nice spending time with my daughter playing on the field and visiting Wallasea Island in search of the seals.

My daughter thought that the toilets were the nicest camping toilets we’ve ever used, always clean and fresh smelling.

I would definitely recommend this site, close to many towns and villages, a short walk into Southminster (approx 1 mile) with shops, restaurants and pubs.

We will be visiting again in the future with the rest of the family.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

 I was looking for a break near the coast, which wasn’t too far away from me and found this gem. The campsite is set in fishing lakes and there is no electric. It has toilets/hot showers, washing up facilities, drinking water and chemical toilet disposal points.

The toilets can be a walk depending on where you a located in the fields (the fields are large), a torch at night is a must, as no illuminated way to the toilet block, unless once up into the yard. There are 2 electric showers in men’s (assume the same in ladies), showers worked fine and practical.

The washing up facilities were practical, as well. The fields can get a bit mushy with rain, though they drain out fairly quickly. The location itself is a bit secluded, which suited me.

There is a pub (Rose Inn) about 200 yards from the entrance road to the campsite. Southminster is very close and Burnham on Crouch (about 1, 1/2 miles away), which has some great eating places and pubs, you can get too to Burhnham via means of a footpath out the rear of the fields and then via road pavement.

Karen who runs the campsite was extremely helpful and informative. I haven't rated the review for child friendliness (didn't take a child to this site).

I shall be returning, as I feel a great place, which ticks the boxes I want for camping.

 Lovely place. owners very friendly. facilities very clean. but unfortunately the serenity of the place let down by yapping dogs.

Rules state that dogs should be on a lead at all times but this is not the case. other wise a enjoyable stay

 Great site, back to basics Camping, No Fancy Club House, No Electric. Just good old fashioned fun. We took our 4 yo here to test out the new tent prior to our week trip to the new forest.

Can safely say at £12 a night a real bargain. My kid loved the freedom she had and mingling with all the other kids and enjoyed herself immensely.

Will be back august bank holiday

 Just back from a 2 night stay and what a great place. Facilities are great and are so clean and well maintained.

Owners are very friendly and helpful. Only our 2nd time camping and I'm sure we will definitely be going back

 Great little place, had a great two days their. Will be going back. The only one thing would be nice if you could fish two rods for £10 or 12 at the moment it is £8 for one, but other than that cant knock it.

The toilet clean and tidy the pitch great loads of room. The people who run it so friendly wish other campsites could be like this.

 Stayed at this lovely little site on the bank holiday at the end of may. The weather was fantastic and I was greeted warmly by Karen and tom the owners. Lovely for relaxing in the peace and quiet. Nice pub a few minutes walk which served good food. Fishing on site although I never used it. Clean showers and toilets and all for £11 a night. Will be returning very soon.

They do have a few kids play things although I think a more permanent kids play structure would improve this site especially as we have 2 very young children. The owners re froze my ice blocks and returned them to me the next morning and there is a fridge you can use in the washing up room. Overall superb relaxing break

Reviewer: Novice camper16 1 review from this member

 Perfect for a quiet escape. Friendly owners, massive field with just a few tents on during a hot spell in August!

Looking for a site with a shop, clubhouse, pool, etc - this isn't for you. Looking for a secluded field where the kids can go and explore - this is the place. Close to Southminster and Burnham.

Very clean toilet & shower facilities with lots of hot water.

We will return!
