Overview

A secluded campsite in rural Essex, near both the coast and the city.

Our pretty Kelvedon Hatch Club campsite in the heart of leafy Essex serves those campers seeking the excitement and attractions of the capital as well as those looking for a relaxing break on the Essex coast.

This 90-pitch campsite is secluded and peaceful and has a really rural feel. All forms of camping is catered for here with a range of facilities including a parent and child room, children’s play area and an excellent dog walk.

The pretty village of Kelvedon Hatch – best known for its once-secret nuclear bunker, now a museum, is close by. Also close is Brentwood, with Mountnessing Windmill – a restored, working post mill – and Old MacDonald’s Farm, a leisure park aimed at children. You can also catch a train from the town to London – buses to the station stop half a mile from site with trains leaving every 10 minutes to the city.

For some beach action, head to Southend. Three Shells, the town’s most central beach, offers easy access to Adventure Island, the Pier and numerous shops, cafes and amusements. Also try the Blue Flag, dog-friendly Canvey Island Beach in the Thames Estuary and the Blue Flag Sandy Shoebury East and Shoeburyness Beaches.

This review is for Kelvedon Hatch

This site is on the outskirts of Brentwood and a short journey from Romford or even Southend-on-sea. Just down the road is The Secret Nuclear Bunker, which is well worth a visit. My only criticism is that the amenities block is getting a bit dated and shabby, although it is kept very clean. Overall, we had a lovely relaxing break here and will definitely be back again.

This review is for Kelvedon Hatch

What a pleasant surprise, the site is still as pretty and peacefull as our last visit many years ago, picturesque, and well kept with a feeling of spaciousness. Great for Brentwood and the rest of southern Essex but also convenient for London via train from Brentwood. It was so quiet during the week you can just stay and relax on site. The toilet/shower facilities were clean, but were old and tired and let the site and the club down, they are not of the standard we have come to expect nowdays.....urgent rebuild required!

Stayed over the bank holiday for a short break out of London. Didn't want to drive far.

This review is for Kelvedon Hatch

Stayed over the bank holiday for a short break out of London. Didn't want to drive far. It's only 30 miles from London but feels like a break in the country. The site is very well kept. Lavatories etc. really clean. Staff very friendly - and provided plasters for a cut finger. The 'secret' nuclear bunker is definitely worth a visit and is walking distance of the site. We'll definitely be returning for a quick weekend break.
