 We were greeted with a smile and a friendly welcome, given a choice of where to pitch and Julie explained where all the facilities were.

The site is small but has everything we needed, the facilities were well organised and spotless. We were unlucky with the weather but each pitch is largely gravel and sheltered by trees and there was no issue with soggy ground. The views were lovely of a field with some Jacobs sheep.

The site is very rural but is within easy reach of a large Tesco and the facilities of Braintree including a shopping outlet, craft centre and park.

This is a quiet and well run site, we enjoyed outr stay and we would happily return.

Nights stayed: 1 Travelling as:  Solo traveller
Reviewer: Carl J 1 review from this member

 The staff were very helpful even though I only stayed for one night to try out my trailer tent, they were there to help or give advice, which came in very handy for another couple who arrived with a brand new van and didn't know what to do, they helped them out so much and even made them a cup of tea, above and beyond I say.

Pitch was hard standing but very big, with its own water and electric hook up, so no walking everywhere, site has a toilet and a washing up room with a washing machine in it, big open space and very quite.

Would recommend and will stay again if in area. Great job well done

 We had a lovely stay at this campsite, very peaceful and relaxing.

Small site in a rural location, lovely walks, which suited us fine.

Julia the warden who was on site was very helpful and friendly,

Amenities were clean, no showers but we knew that before we arrived.

 What a welcome break away from it all. Friendly and welcoming site manager. Lovely site, small quiet and peaceful. Clean toilet. Laundry facilities if needed, hot water and large washing up area!

Would return! good value for money!

If you want food before arriving shop at tesco near great dunmow! local corner shops are few and far between, that said I got the impression if you ask nicely the site manager has spares for those who forget things, like milk and bottle openers!

 Very quiet site. Very friendly site manager, even made me a cup of tea!

Not much evidence of covid compliance measures such as hand sanitizer in toilet.

Would use again for a night but would need a shower for longer stay

Reviewer: Slowroad 52 reviews from this member

 In many ways a super site, albeit one more for the caravans really. Mostly gravel, with an area of grass at the far end for tents.

Unfortunately this is the furthest away from the very nice loo/washing block (a very nicely done-up shed) - which is one of the nicest I've come across. I wasn't bothered that there wasn't a shower - more important to have hot water!

There were only a couple of other units - caravans - in use while I was there, so it was very quiet. Lots of information about the local area. Friendly and helpful host, and curious sheep!

Pleased to find a nice small site where I needed it, and I'd stay again if in the area. Need to book in advance.

 What a great site. Quiet and a good views. No showers but no problem. Toilet facilities were clean and rustic. Just one but it was good. Great recycling area. We were there for 2 very warm days. It was a dream base for visiting friend in the local area, no kids BRILLIANT. One slight niggle we didnít see anyone from the site to pay and I canít find a secure way of sending them money. Hopefully we will be back next year and can pay for both visit, would say book early. Definitely will return at some point.

Reviewer: Kensingtongreen 79 reviews from this member

 We booked this site at the last minute, seeking some peace and quiet. We were not disappointed. It is a most relaxing place devoid of any distractions or luxuries. Staff were friendly and pleasant. A bargain at £15 per night.

However, visitors should be aware that there is nowhere within walking distance to eat or shop. Also, there remains just the one unisex toilet / washroom which some might find insufficient.

Reviewer: Sarahfostxy 1 review from this member

 We spent 9 nights here. The pitches are huge and kept very tidy. The whole site is quiet and clean and well looked after. The lovely lady who owns it was very welcoming and helpful. The toilets were always clean and it was nice to know there was a washing machine on site if we needed it. We loved that there was a water supply for each pitch! No need to keep refilling the aqua roll. Had a brilliant time with the dogs as plenty of fields to walk over. Access was also very easy from the a120 dual carriage way. Was good value for money at £15 a night and no extra cost for the dogs or awning. Will definitely stay again!
