Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Welcome to our site in the attractive village of Tolleshunt DArcy, near the river Blackwater. All pitches have electric hook-up and mains water connected and there are toilet and shower facilities and for 2018 we have added a separate toilet and washing up area. We can even provide your dog with a kennel should you wish. Tolleshunt DArcy has a local shop, Country Pub and Indian Restaurant. The large village of Tiptree is close by, with the famous Wilkins Jam Factory and Tearooms also other independent shops. There is also a Tesco and Asda within easy reach. RSPB Reserve at Old Hall Marshes. Essex Wild Life Trust Visitor Centre at Abberton Reservoir. The pretty sailing and fishing village of West Mersea, famous for its oysters. The market town of Maldon with its ancient quay and Thames barges. The historic town of Colchester. Coastal walks and fishing lakes. Local Golf club and Riding School.

We booked last minute for a 3 night stay over New year, we wanted a quiet site in the countryside to just get away and relax, and that's exactly what we did! The site own was lovely from our very first phone conversation to meeting her in person. Very accommodating, and friendly. The site has a lovely wet room that was spotless and a lovely warm shower, the washing up area and toilet were also spotless. We will definitely visit again.

We had a warm welcome from the friendly owners who gave us the option of any pitch we wanted, each pitch had its own water supply which was a bonus. The shower, toilet block and dish washing area was kept clean all the time. The site is a good base for visiting places of interest in the area. There are pubs and shops nearby so its easy to get supplies. We had a wonderful stay and it was nice that the owners came around each day to make sure everything was ok.

We were looking for a site that was near enough to visit relatives in Southend-on-Sea but also in the country and close to other attractions such as the Roman remains of Colchester. This was perfect - we had a wonderfully peaceful stay and the owners were really helpful. There is a grass field with electric hook-ups but we were on hard-standing/electric close to the toilet/shower block. Only noise was the odd whinnying of horses. Lovely to see the horses out in the fields and watch the sunrise and set above the expansive countryside views. We will be returning, thank you.
