Essex is situated in East Anglia and close to London and some seaside resorts.
Rural Essex is delightful where it borders Suffolk.
Romans settled here and Colchester is the oldest recorded Roman town in England. Hylands House and park is a country house and parkland saved from dereliction when purchased by the local council.
It is open to the public for various events including an annual music festival.
We’re not going to harp on only about TOWIE or white stilettoes, because that would be mightily unfair to lovely Essex.
It’s home of the oldest recorded town in Britain (Colchester, but you knew that), historic villages such as St Osyth and seaside resorts including Clacton-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea.
And, more amusingly, Essex is where a holidaymaker spotted a ‘lion’ in 2012, making it top of our list for big game hunting (for actual wildlife, barn owls and otters can be spotted in the AONB Dedham Vale on the Essex/Sussex border).
Essex campsites can be used as a base to see the best of the county, from hiking Epping Forest to clubbing in Chelmsford: if you need some inspiration, take a look at the ‘Local Attractions’ tab on each listing for details of what to do in the area, or look for campsites in Essex according to leisure on site or nearby.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results.
For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
