Kelvedon Hatch Camping and Caravanning Park can be found a short distance outside the popular town of Brentwood, and is one of the most popular caravan parks in Essex. The park is open from late March to early November and welcomes tents, motorhomes, and touring caravans to its pitches, many of which are fully serviced. Tourists staying at the park benefit from access to electricity hook-ups as well as facilities for completing laundry and washing up that are easily accessible from all pitches. Wi-Fi access can also be enjoyed across the park, which is child and pet friendly with an outdoor play area for youngsters to enjoy.
Kelvedon Hatch is so well-loved because of the unique balance it offers. The park itself is among the leading holiday parks in Essex, owing to its rural location where it is easy to escape from the pressures of life. However, for those who want to explore further afield, trains from Brentwood Town Centre can have you in Central London within an hour, while in the opposite direction you can head to the fabled Essex coast and enjoy towns like Southend.
A number of walking and cycling routes surrounding the park direct you into the open spaces that are available, while you can also jump in the car and discover some the best local attractions for yourself. Old Macdonald’s Farm, situated a short distance off the M25 motorway, is a great day out for the kids, featuring rides but also opportunities to feed and pet the animals, with soft indoor play for if the weather moves in or you have smaller children.
In Kelvedon Hatch itself there is a museum which was once a nuclear bunker. Built in 1952, the building now charts its own history including the reasons why it was built, and when it was decided it was no longer needed as a bunker.
There are numerous country parks surrounding Kelvedon Hatch, while those who want shopping and other experiences should head into Chelmsford or consider a trip to Colchester Zoo. There are also numerous small streams and rivers where fishing can be enjoyed, and a number of golf courses exist in the local area, especially if you are able to head towards the M25, which will open up the whole of London for you to potentially explore.
Strike the perfect balance between the country and the city; stay at the Kelvedon Hatch Camping and Caravanning Club Site and enjoy everything available to you.
