Electric hook ups available, WiFi and enough space for you to pitch with friends or have your own privacy. The short walk down to the beach leads to a large grassed conservation area, with beautiful wild flowers in the Spring, and leads on to a long stretch of unspoiled beach, where you can walk undisturbed for miles in either direction.

Owned by The Lord Family since 1918, Fen Farm offers a warm and friendly welcome to their guests. The site caters for tents, trailer tents touring caravans and motor homes of any size and boasts award wining loos plus a laundry and shower block with solar powered water heating. There is also a family sized shower room with plently of space for parents to attend to little ones at shower time.

The site’s proximity to the Essex marshes provides a unique and tranquil atmosphere, where kids can enjoy themselves without having to switch anything on or power up. There is a play area with swings, seesaws and climbing frames, plus plenty of wide open spaces to explore including a wonderful south facing beach within walking distance. There is a fenced lily pond with many koi carp and a tinkling waterfall, plus there is an open field for dog walks.

There is a museum, delightful shops, cafes and restaurants all surrounded by 12 miles of wonderful coastline. It’s ideal for those who enjoy sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing and fishing or for kids to go crabbing in the creek.
