How to describe Glamping at Lodge Farm? Think fancy open-air getaways 15 minutes' drive from the Essex coast with rural views whichever way you turn and you'll start to get an idea.
This small-scale site is spread out over two acres of peaceful farmland. The bell tents here all feel like a proper rural hideaway – each one looks out over gorgeous green countryside and comes equipped with appropriately outdoorsy kit, including a firepit for outdoor grills in fine weather.
Although deep in the countryside, Glamping at Lodge Farm isn't the kind of place where you'll have to leave luxuries and creature comforts behind – well-maintained toilets and hot showers are a short walk away across the field, and the smart canvas units come equipped with a comfortable double bed, linen, pillows, crockery, cutlery and soft furnishings.
Glamping at Lodge Farm is in a quiet location approximately two miles from the village of Little Clacton. Handily for those after car-free trips, it's also under half a mile's walk from Thorpe-le-Soken railway station. Slightly further afield, Frinton-on-Sea's lovely sandy beach and Clacton-on-Sea's popular seafront and pier are both within a 15-minute drive. Looking to spend the whole day on the coast? Chat to the site's owners about hiring their beach hut in Holland-on-Sea (15 minutes).

Head to Clacton-on-Sea (15 minutes' drive) to see the traditional Essex seaside – a restored Victorian pier, funfairs, bowling, amusement arcades and an aquarium all provide plenty of family-friendly options. For something on the less commercial side, you could also head out to Essex’s well-preserved rural coastline to explore wildlife havens like Hamford Water (15 minutes) or the Blackwater Estuary (an hour).
After a few days spent dallying along the coast, dive into Essex's green interior with a visit to Dedham or Flatford (both 30 minutes) and see where famed 18th-century painter John Constable drew inspiration for many of his finest works. Other highlights inland include well-preserved Colchester (25 minutes), Britain's oldest recorded town where Roman heritage, afternoons in Castle Park and walking safaris around Colchester Zoo combine to make an excellent day out.
After that, this part of the world has lots of other towns that are well worth exploring, from the scenic island resort of West Mersea (45 minutes) to the ancient market town of Saffron Walden (an hour and 20 minutes).
