Visit Essex and stay at Mundon Caravan Site, which enjoys views of the River Blackwater.
Mundon Caravan Site is a Caravan Club Certificated Location (CL), found on Hook Farm, a short distance south of the charming town of Maldon. As a CL, Mundon Caravan Site has space for five touring caravans or motorhomes only, including large motorhomes and ‘fifth wheelers,’ and is open for exclusive use by members of The Caravan Club. The park is open all throughout the year and it is a dog friendly campsite.
All of the pitches at Mundon Caravan Site are hardstanding and serviced with an electric hook-up. Additional facilities found on-site for guests to use during their stay include recycling points, water points and a grey water disposal point. Rallies can also be held at Mundon Caravan Site, with those looking to book asked to contact the park’s management direct.
The historic town of Maldon is definitely worth some of your time – and it is only about a 10-minute drive from this CL. The pretty high street has a mix of independent and high street shops, as well as some delightful pubs. Enjoy a walk along the promenade, grab an ice cream at one of the stalls and see people working on old boats, while you enjoy views across the Blackwater estuary.
You can also visit Chelmsford, which is about a half hour drive from Mundon Caravan Site. It's a great place for shopping and enjoying a meal out. You can also tour Chelmsford Cathedral, go ice skating, bowling or swimming, visit nearby Hylands Park and Gardens, or watch cricket at the Essex County Cricket Club.
Roman Colchester is about a 40-minute drive from this CL. Kids will love a day out at the excellent zoo or at Go Bananas, a soft play centre, plus if you visit Colchester Castle you can find out more about the town's Roman history and enjoy a stroll through Castle Park. There's also a Leisure World complex where you can do swimming or enjoy a sauna, jacuzzi or spa treatments, while the town's Rollerworld is also a lot of fun.
Beautiful Paycocke's House and Gardens, which is administered by the National Trust, is an intricately decorated, half timbered, 16th century house in the small town of Coggeshall, about a half hour drive from this CL. And Coggeshall itself is a lovely little town, surrounded by pretty countryside.

Registered an account just to post this review and warn people NOT to even consider this site. Although it appears to be a nice site it is run be an EXTREMELY rude woman. Not even worth visiting nevermind staying on at the same location as a person with this attitude.
Essex 20 Sep 2015
We didn't stay at this site, we were visiting family who had booked in for 5 nights. Have never met a ruder site manager. We parked on the hard core next to our family's pitch to save the grass as that pitch had been vacant since they arrived. As we arrived my husband jumped out to open the 2 sets of gates/barriers and was told abruptly that 'he should open his eyes and search for the correct hole before he broke the bloody thing' by one of the owners as he was closing the wooden gate behind me-he's not a stupid man(!) he can work out the correct way to lock a gate, he is 45!
After a couple of hours we were 'ordered' by hand gestures to move our car off the pitch next door. Quite happily I got up to do so as I could see that finally there was a family arriving to park up. As I got into the car I apologized to the owner, explaining that I had parked there as I didn't want to spoil the grass next to the caravan as it had been raining quite heavily recently. Instead of acknowledging this she just told me to move because 'someone else who's Are u still at monkey puzzleactually paid to be here' had arrived. as I reversed on the single track hard core she then shouted 'not over the grass you tw...'. Had my elderly father and step-mother not been settled there at this point this woman would have received the benefit of a few home truths, but fortunately my good manners prevailed. When I stupidly asked where exactly she would like me to park she suggested 'the car park'!!, by this she meant the small gravel area at the entrance of the site which was doubling as garage forecourt, full of second hand cars in various states of repair which were apparently for sale., oh and this is also where the sites 'washroom' facilities are situated. I followed all her instructions without question but still must have annoyed her as when I was walking back to my family she tried to ram me with the before mentioned wooden gate she was having to close behind her new visitors. As I approached the new visitors who we're leveling up their van, the father said to me 'quick!, off the grass before she sees you-you're going to have to get back in from that side through the window'!. Oh dear Mundon caravan site not only have you lost repeat bookings from my family, the family next door and anybody who may see this review, you have shown me, a local tourist advisor, your true colors & that may cost you dearly. Advice from my long gone Grandmother- 'good manners cost nothing'.
