Don’t get too engrossed in your book on the train if you’re farming yourself and family out to this Essex coast campsite from London: you’ll be there in a jiffy. An hour and a quarter from Liverpool Street lands you at Thorpe-le-Soken, a miniscule quarter of a mile along a rural footpath to the acreage at Grange Farm Campsite. Arriving from elsewhere? The farm is at the end of the A133 from Colchester 20 minutes away by car, although personally we’d get someone else to drive so we could get on with our holiday reading…
Although it’s within ten minutes’ drive from the coast at Clacton, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze, the atmos at popular Grange Farm is all pretty peaceful, set deep in the Essex countryside with room galore for pitches. Horse-riding is a canterable mile away; and tennis courts, a golf course and a heated indoor pool four miles away – just in case you don’t fancy braving Essex sea waters before summer.
Walkies abound from Thorpe-le-Soken village through the rural surroundings: to the coast, to Landermere, to Beaumont Quay, to Holland Haven Country Park; for the uninitiated, to the village fish and chip shop… Speaking of fish and chips (always), a chippy, takeaways, three restaurants (Chinese, Indian, Italian), three pubs, a petrol station and a Tesco Express are at the village; all three pubs dish up nosh.
Facilities on site at Grange Farm Campsite – showers, loos, chemical disposal point – are basic but kept very clean; the loo and shower block was refurbished in 2014. There’s no laundry block on site, but a launderette is three miles away.
Barbecues are allowed on site and dogs are welcome.
No group bookings of more than 5 people accepted.
Strictly no commercial-looking vehicles permitted at any time on the campsite, including those that do not feature signage.
