We have just got back from a weeks break at Valley Farm and have had a lovely time despite the weather and the restrictions bought about by Coronavirus. The site is in a good location, close to the town centre and our favourite, Clacton Pier. Plenty going on on-site for the kids who had a great time.

EssexGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Had a wonderful time at Valley Farm. All staff were friendly, polite and so helpful, entertainment was very good despite social distancing meant there was so much they couldn't do (kids games, dance floor etc, it was still lots of fun.
The Thorpe caravan was very clean, the heating was dreadful.
The social distancing measures in place were of a very good standard and it was very organised indeed.
Brilliant location, close to everything you could want.
Would definitely stay there again.
