We are working with the park to provide 10 pre-erected Bell tents for camping whereby you bring your own equipment without the hassle of putting up your own tent. Our Bell tents are available on a per night basis for £45 per night for up to 5 persons and only available from Aug 1st 2019 to 31st Aug 2019.
Cressing Temple itself is steeped in history dating back to the 1100’s when it was given to the Knights Templar and home to three grade 1 listed barns as well as Tudor built wall gardens. Since the former Great House, Tudor mansion was taken down in the 18th Century all that remains of the former Tudor splendor is the Tudor brick built Walled Gardens that once stood behind the mansion. It was once used as a pleasure garden and in later years as a kitchen garden.
The campsite itself has a fire pit to each tent, a wash up area, toilet area a short walk from the tents and access to a water supply. Parking can be adjacent to your tent. Local attractions include Maldon with its beautiful dockside of local barges and the beautiful Promenade Park, which provides an awesome family day out. Close by is the Freeport Designer Shopping Outlet with all major brands for an afternoon of shopping and if that’s not enough to temp you you can visit local areas of interest such as Britian’s first recorded town of Colchester, where you can enjoy endless culture, parks and leisure facilities.
