Burnham Wick Farm CL is situated in a beautifully idyllic location on a working arable farm in rural Essex. Apart from agriculture,the farm has a strong emphasis on Conservation and is a previous winner of FWAG`s `Farming and Conservation` competition and also received a `Nature of Farming` award. We are signed up to the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and Entry Level Stewardship and as a result, we have established Over-Winter stubble areas, plus margins along fields have been created to encourage Beetle-Banks, with Pollen nectar-mix and wild bird-mix. A Lapwing breeding programme is being developed and Cornbuntings are in abundance. The Seawall adjoining the farm is an area of SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and birdwatching is always rewarding in this area.

There are extensive footpaths and bridleways on the farm and beyond, which make it a haven for walkers,dogs and cyclists alike.Pet Llamas and Alpacas are a feature on our farm, as well as the many beautiful horses which are in the fields near the CL. The site itself is located on a large flat field with electrical hook-ups and ample space for awnings.

We have an Information Room at the CL entrance which contains a wealth of local information and maps, as well as a good selection of novels and this has received many positive remarks from visitors. There is a local shop within a mile of the site as well as an hourly bus service into Maldon and other larger centres. Burnham on Crouch has many pubs, restaurants and even a small cinema, with two screens.

Our CL is known for its tranquillity and peacefulness and many caravanners return time and again to spend time on this gem in the Dengie Peninsula. A warm welcome awaits you!

Spring bank hol stay 2018

Sorry but a bit late leaving this review, but this CL really is a gem and is a credit to it owners. Will definitely return and highly recommend.


Tranquil

Just returned from a four night stay on this great CL. Excellent walking direct from the site along the sea wall in to Burnham on Crouch and also the wonderful surrounding farmland and all its aspects towards conservation and wildlife. We especially loved the wild flower areas and the beautiful sunflowers. Fantastic and spacious pitches, together with a very warm welcome from the owner all made for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you.


Fabulous

First stay of 2018, hopefully more before the end of the season. Wonderful welcome, as is usual. Plentiful wildlife immediately outside your 'van. First thing we heard on arrival was the cuckoo. Had a very close encounter with the barn owl too. So peaceful and tranquil, so good for the soul.


Fantastic, just love it

This was our third stay at this fantastic site. From the email before arrival telling us our pitch number and earliest arrival time to the welcome from Adrienne and Martin just perfect. This is a full facilities site within walking distance of Burnham on Crouch. Walking along the road takes about 20 minutes. Plenty of POI in the area also great walks along the river and around the farm. Fantastic wildlife on show each day.



Another wonderful stay

Just had another great stay here. Warm welcome, wonderful information room. Completely restful site with wonderful wildlife views direct from your van! Didn't see the barn owl this time, but did see the hares among the horses. The new sit and ride on mower, which collects the clippings, is given a run out as a van leaves and before the next arrives ensuring that the grass remains short. Thanks. An easy walk into town along quiet roads or via the sea wall, make it circular if you like. Town has a museum, Tesco, Co-op, pharmacy and self owned shops including a hardware and craft shop with a very knowledgeable owner, market on Tuesdays. Award winning fish and chips which are delicious and made even better for eating in the sun whilst watching the boating activities on the river. Pubs and cafes too, yacht clubs and a marina so plenty to see, in fact enough of what you need to enjoy your stay. Won't be back this year but looking forward to visiting next year.
