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

My second visit to this site this year, 1st stay was fine (6 days) but 2nd stay (4 nights) was not as pleasant and I was glad to get home. Good Points: site amenities are normally kept clean (but not when kids are there, as they made them dirty). Friendly helpful staff when entering the site, a nice remote area with high trees to cut off winds. Good pitch sizes for car and caravan/tent/camper vans. Easy access to water tap/bins/waste water. Shop sells a few emergency bits that you might have forgotten to pack but not much food for sale. You wouldn't think you were so near to a town as large as Brentwood, more like you�re in the middle of the countryside. Good pegging down on grass, never found many stones to hit with pegs. Bad Points: Narrow lanes to drive down to get to site, Site can get busy on school holidays and a bit noisy. People not picking up after their dogs (mainly an elderly man with 2 setters and possibly a chocolate Labrador), large loose doggie doo's left on pathways, some dogs were off leads owned by irresponsible campers and not checked by site managers, ball games on the site grass instead of the designated park area (football hitting my awning), BBQ's too near tents with high flames (using liquid lightning to start BBQ), noisy after 10pm with music. I�d like to see site managers more on-hand to check rules being adhered too. Spoilt my stay this time.

This review is for Kelvedon Hatch

We had a lovely stay at this site. Coming onto the site we were greeted by Sarah who dealt with our payment who was really lovely and told us all about the site and things we could do on our stay. We were then greeted by Ron who showed us our pitch and where all the facilities were. Funny guy, made the kids giggle and showed them the park which they loved and lived on when we were on site. Lots of things to do around the area and even though the site was quite busy it didn't seem it especially using the toilet blocks etc... Nicely spaced out and the flowers all around the entrance made it so welcoming and pretty. Really recommend this site no matter what age you are. Relaxing, fun and a friendly atmosphere!

This review is for Kelvedon Hatch

This was the first club site we visited way back in 1994, we were really impressed with the facilities then. We liked the layout with two field with a track looping round each to a central exit road, with the play area and reception the other side of a stream. A lot is still the same, but there have been changes. The track is now a site road and there are a good number of hard standings all around both fields. This year the toilet block has been completely rebuilt and is fantastic. The staff kept it immaculate and there was plenty of hot water, and no queues for showers. As we had the Grandchildren with us (2 & 5) we sampled the family room which was great. The site still hasn't lost it's character despite the improvements. There is quite a bit to see nearby, including the Epping Ongar Railway, which as well as steam and diesel, also operates a vintage double decker bus service, The Essex Secret Nuclear Bunker, (it seems odd to the lots of brown signs pointing to something "Secret" and Old MacDonalds Farm & Fun Park. We did wonder if the latter was a little expensive, but the kids loved every minute there. The site is also not too far from Lakeside shopping centre. The HSM team were friendly and helpful. The children loved the Peppa Pig sitting on the front of the site tractor!
