Campsites in Essex

Essex is a largely rural county, boasting 350 miles of stunning coastline; one of the longest of any county in England. Inland, lush countryside is dotted with tiny villages and small market towns linked by quiet country lanes.

Kelvedon Hatch


This is a secluded campsite in rural Essex near to the coast, yet within close proximity of London - merely a twenty minute train ride away. Kelvedon Hatch is steeped in history and is home to a nuclear bunker, designed to hold 600 people in the event of war. There is a local museum telling the story of its life. Other attractions in the area include Mountnessing Windmill, North Weald Airfield Museum, Old MacDonald’s Farm and Epping Ongar Railway.
