Glamping  at Lodge Farm: Interior

General

  • Peaceful glamping site set on two acres of scenic farmland
  • Half a mile from Thorpe-le-Soken station; Clacton 15 minutes' drive
  • Furnished bell tents with double bed, cutlery and crockery provided

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).

The very luxurious camping experience!13/09/2021

    Best ever camping experience! Super comfy tent with amazing facilities and Hannah was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble for her. As there are only two tents, it's very peaceful and private, and felt completely safe for the children. Fantastic location only 10 minutes from the seaside. We also rented the beach hut which was great fun. Highly recommended; we'll be back! Thanks Hannah!

    The tent and surroundings were great. The tent is situated on a fantastic open field with lots of green space. Loved having our own fire pit and our host was amazing, particularly helpful when we needed assistance with our fire! The tent was warm and comfortable at night and the added extras such as the welcome basket, fairy lights and the useful information handbook were great touches. Can't fault anything about this stay, will definitely be returning.

    The bell tents and setting were superb! So comfortable, everything was provided (stove, plenty of chairs, tables, crockery/cutlery, lovely fire pit, lanterns etc). It was very peaceful and very special to have the place to ourselves as we hired both tents. We’d love to come again. The host was so friendly and helpful. Loved the beach hut too

    Beautiful setting, 15 minutes by car from the sea. The host Hannah was lovely and had everything ready for us. The field only has two tents, so plenty of room for everyone. There are pots/pans/cutlery/utensils and a cooker available, which is lovely! We had a cosy fire going in no time. The bedding was really comfortable. Best sleep I've ever had on a camping trip!!!

    We loved our bell tent at Lodge Farm - the tent was all set up with a double bed with bedding as well as cutlery/plates etc. There was also outdoor chairs and access to a camping stove to cook (although we didn't make use of this). There is also a toilet and shower set up which is shared with the other bell tent but kept in very good condition. The tents are set up in a lovely field. It was a great place to get away from the city and enjoy some countryside! You are also only a short drive from the sea. We would highly recommend glamping at lodge farm!

A really family friendly site with lovely hosts and clean facilities.23/08/2021

    This wonderful campsite gave us one of the most relaxing holidays we’ve had for a while - getting back to nature and simplicity being the key. It has all new 5m Bell tents (stayed Jul 2021) very nicely furnished with a comfy double bed and quality blow up single beds for the kids - all duvets, linens etc. included (Bring your own towels though). The host was very attentive and happy to accommodate any requests, such as swapping ice packs for other refrozen ones). A large level field great for biking around for the kids, ball games or flying kites! There were only 2 tents when we stayed, so it felt very exclusive and peaceful. If you really want to get away from it all, this is for you. The new outdoor chabby chic shower was very pleasant to use and meant you could shower with the sun on your face! When hiring a fire pit, all the wood and kindling comes with it and the hosts will gladly replenish your sackful for a very reasonable £6. An outdoor table and 4 chairs is provided along with a hamper containing plates, bowls, cups and cutlery for 4. Also the welcome teas, coffees and biscuits was a nice and welcome touch after the journey getting there. All in all we found this site ideal for us (family of 4) with clean facilities, plenty of space in the tent and a touch of luxury with the bedding, side tables and lighting at night! We would definitely recommend.

    Disliked: 

    The washing-up area was well stocked, but only covered by a gazebo that got destroyed by high winds while we stayed! Perhaps in time a more sturdy, permanent structure would be a great addition. Also if the hosts put more tents on the site, more than one toilet and one shower may be required in future.

From the manager...

Great news- for the 2022 season we have now converted a redundant barn into a purpose-built kitchen area.

Directions

Local attractions

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).
