Spacious grass pitches in the green Essex countryside A 15-minute drive to Chelmsford; 40 minutes to Audley End Tractor rides on site; firepits provided for campfires. Rural walks, How about proper farm activities like tractor rides (ask site staff for details)? The place to find all this is The Meadow at Waples Mill, an Essex farm site between Chelmsford and Dunmow (and about 15 minutes’ drive from both). This family-friendly site is handy for walks on the Essex Way and other local footpaths, and tractor and trailer rides around the farm are organised on alternate days to give guests a glimpse into agricultural life. Activities complete for the day, it's time to chill out, and that should be easy here – all pitches have access to toilets and hot showers in a trailer close by, and firepits are provided so you can have a safe campfire (with wood available to buy on site and a great farm shop 10 minutes’ drive away for fireside snacks). Pitches themselves are large, well kept and well spaced within a meadow that backs onto the River Roding. Dogs are welcome, and there are plenty of places to take them for a walk nearby. London folk looking for a quick escape to the countryside, this is a place to bear in mind – it’s only about an hour and quarter by road from the city.The meadow @ Waples Mill, is an Essex farm site between Chelmsford and Dunmow (approximately 15 mins drive from both.) You can pitch your tent in the picturesque grass meadow along the river roding, we can provide you with a fire pit on request. You can enjoy going back to nature in this beautiful county meadow. This family friendly site is handy for walks along the Essex way and other local footpaths. Both showers and toilets are also available on the natural site.

I rally enjoy my time away on The Meadow. Martin was extremely helpful and checked in regularly to ensure everything was going smooth. Had a great walk in the evening; likewise the fire pits are bonus to make memories with s’mores. Would recommend

Martin is a great host. He checked us at 10pm if we’re all OK and again in the morning to greet. As bike packers from London and our first time to camp out, we were not disapointed. The campsite is great. Clean toilet and shower. Plenty of space to be close to the nature. Nice river along the campsite. Overall rating, very good.

Lovely setting and helpful host
Beautiful setting and lovely helpful host. We visited during the Easter weekend with two young children and there is a lovely river with flowering fields ro wander through and explore. The host was responsive with messages previous to the visit and brought us fresh, dry fire wood. All in all, lovely experience and would 100% recommend for a relaxing and rustic camping experience.
