Barleylands: We are a family friendly site

General

  • Dog-friendly campsite in the grounds of a popular farm park
  • Between Billericay and Basildon; easily accessible by public transport
  • Restaurant, tea rooms, farm shop and kids' attractions

Barleylands is a spacious Essex farm campsite with plenty of room for families to relax (along with their dogs if they're coming along for a country break.

The level grass fields at this working farm have basic facilities including hot showers and well-maintained toilet blocks and are a few hundred yards from a popular farm park where there are all sorts of animals, shops and food options to explore. Guests staying the night at Barleylands also qualify for a special stay and play discount, making it even easier to access its walk-through aviary, tractor rides, bird of prey displays and indoor and outdoor play. The park is particularly recommended for kids between the ages of three and 10.

Also close by is the Barleylands craft village (open from Tuesday to Sunday), where there are over 30 different studios to explore. And, as it's surrounded by open countryside, Barleylands has great access to local footpaths and rights of way. Other outdoor leisure options in the area include a golf course and an equestrian centre, both of which are under a mile away.

Barleylands is also easily accessible by public transport. Regular local bus services stop opposite the park and can take you into either Billericay (journey time 15 minutes) or Basildon (20 minutes), where there are shops, cinemas, leisure centres and mainline railway stations.

Please note that this is a working farm so there may be some noise from farm machinery at times.

    No staff over the weekend, you could rock up for the weekend and no one would know. If the site was busy there would definitely not be enough toilets or showers also there was only one wash station for dishes.

  • Liked: 

    Large area and lots of open farm fields and a lake.
    Found an unexpected treasure of a site for all types of users.
    If you like camping or motor homing this is well worth the visit.
    The kids will love it.
    Great value.

    Check out some of the RVs parked on site. They look bigger than some houses.

    Disliked: 

    Poorly signposted reception booking in location.

Open Space In Abundance07/26/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomElaine D.Confirmed

  • Electric asphalt and grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Not our first visit to this site and for us and on this occassion we were joined by family and grandchildren. The main attraction is the huge open spaces along with the craft village and teashop. It is a great place for kids, room to run around until their hearts content and the children really enjoyed their visit to the Farm Park

    Disliked: 

    Not much to dislike from our point of view apart from another inconsiderate camper having parked their car in the middle of our pitch and gone out, leaving it there which meant that we were unable to get onto our pitch on arrival, not the fault of the site though. We did not use the toilet or shower facilities so cannot comment on those.

From the manager...

Hi Elaine
Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that someone didn't vacate the pitch on time but hope it didn't inconvenience you too much. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope to see you back at Barleylands again soon.
