Alternatively, you can just relax in the comfort of our comfortable safari tents with small decked veranda where you can peacefully watch the world go by where you are able to reconnect with nature, unplugging yourself from technology and finding refuge from urban existence and everyday life.
Our campsite at Essex Glamping, Hadleigh Park has been carefully selected and offers a modern toilet and shower block, café, bike hire, children’s play area, Olympic mountain bike trails created for 2012 Olympic games or indulge in the fabulous walking trails around the historic monument of Hadleigh Castle, there really is something for everyone.
Because we are passionate about what we do, our goal is to ensure you and your family have a glamping experience to remember and whether you come as a couple or a family you’ll find a whole range of activities and many places you can visit. Perhaps you’ll enjoy chilling out having a picnic, or using the accommodation as a base to explore the local towns, restaurants and shops within the local area, or maybe enjoy the areas of outstanding natural beauty that the park has to offer.
Southend on Sea provides beautiful coastlines and a day chilling on the beach is a perfect place to enjoy quality family time, or if you are feeling slightly more energetic why not take a walk along the longest pleasure pier in the world, there’s so much to choose from.
