Colchester Country Park: Hardstanding touring pitch

General

  • Well-maintained park within walking distance of ancient Colchester
  • Easy access to London, East Anglia, Suffolk and Essex
  • Three facility blocks: never queue for the toilet or shower

Excellent excellent Essex... an easy hour from London, a comely coastline, and close to East Anglia, Constable Country and the Sussex coast for day trips – it's all very excellent indeed. And then there's Colchester, the ancient town settled by the Romans way back when and full of superb sights, museums and leisure offerings – all very excellent too.

If you're visiting Essex for any of the above, a march along to high-quality Colchester Country Park should be an excellent option, as it's within walking distance of Colchester city centre and close to the coasts of Essex and Sussex. Arrange a day trip to London from here or use the park as a base to or from ferry ports: but a day or two in Colchester should surely be had too...

The park is set in pretty parkland with roomy pitches and spacious fields. Facilities are plentiful – no queuing here – and include three spotlessly kept amenities blocks with private cubicles and free hot water. There's also a dedicated disabled unit, dishwashing and laundry areas, a large play area and a shop.

  • Liked: 

    A very well laid out and maintained site, with all facilities within easy access. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Security is excellent. The shower blocks, toilets etc are spotless with plentiful hot water. I’ve noticed that some reviewers complained about the road noise, but we got used to it very quickly and it didn’t disturb us at all. The site is very convenient for Colchester and the surrounding area. We were visiting family so it was a great option for us. Our two year old granddaughter came for a night and was made very welcome too. She enjoyed the play park and could run around safely. The other campers were friendly and considerate.

    Disliked:

    Gorgeous park and the amenities were all very well looked after and kept clean throughout our stay. I also want to say how lovely the people are that run this place, we got caught in traffic and so arrived slightly after their latest check in time but upon calling to let them know they assured us we needn't worry and were very welcoming and helpful when we arrived.
    Will definitely be going back again!!

    Overall site conditions were clean and well cared for, as they have been for all of our visits to the site. Pitches well provisioned and generously spaced.

    Disliked: 

    Water temperature and pressure in the ablution blocks was very low.
    Road noise - but the owners cannot do anything about that as the A12 Colchester slip-road run only about 10m away from some of the pitches.

Local attractions

Classic Colchester is a popular pick for holidaymakers in the area, who come to see Colchester Castle and Castle Museum with its extensive exhibit on Roman Colchester; the social history Hollytrees Museum and the Natural History Museum in the city's former All Saints' Church.

Plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops are here too, as well as decent leisure options like a leisure centre, ten-pin bowling, roller skating, the Mercury Theatre, the Arts Centre and the Minories Gallery.

If you're on holiday with kids, Colchester Zoo is always a hit, as is the East Anglian Railway Museum at Chappel which has heaps of activities for young explorers. The Colne Valley Railway's mile of track is at the old village of Castle Hedingham, also well worth a look for its Norman Hedingham Castle and timber-framed medieval buildings.

The area surrounding Colchester Country Park is excellent walking, cycling and nature spotting land with miles of nature reserves, footpaths and bike trails: head from Colchester to Alresford a mile and a half away or join up with the 81-mile long Essex Way from Epping to Harwich.
