Burnham Wick Farm is situated in a
beautifully idyllic location in rural Essex. Apart from
agriculture,the farm has a strong emphasis on Conservation and is a previous
winner of FWAG`s `Farming and Conservation` competition and also received a
`Nature of Farming` award. We are signed up to the Countryside Stewardship
Scheme and Entry Level Stewardship and as a result, we have established
Over-Winter stubble areas, plus margins along fields have been created to
encourage Beetle-Banks, with Pollen nectar-mix and wild bird-mix. A Lapwing
breeding programme is being developed and Cornbuntings are in abundance.The
Seawall adjoining the farm is an area of SSSI (Site of Special Scientific
Interest) and birdwatching is always rewarding in this area.
There are extensive footpaths and
bridleways on the farm and beyond, which make it a haven for walkers,dogs and
cyclists alike.Pet Llamas and Alpacas are a feature on our farm, as well as the
many beautiful horses which are in the fields near the caravan site (Caravan Club 5-van Certificated Location CL)
The site itself is located on a large flat field with electrical hook-ups and ample space for
awnings.We have an Information Room at the CL entrance which contains a wealth of
local information and maps, as well as a good selection of novels and this has
received many positive remarks from visitors.There is a local shop within a mile
of the site as well as an hourly bus service into Maldon and other larger
centres.Burnham on Crouch has many pubs, restaurants and even a small cinema,
with two screens.
Our CL is known for its tranquillity and peacefulness and many caravanners
return time and again to spend time on this gem in the Dengie Peninsula.A warm
welcome awaits you!
