Why stay here?...

Come & visit The Pretty Thing, our beautiful, peaceful, glamping, camping and touring park. Teeming with wildlife, perfect for bird watching by day and star gazing at night. If you like animals, you can often see our resident horses, enjoying their well earned, peaceful, retirement...

Relax, unwind & enjoy our friendly park close to the historic town of Colchester and the beautiful seaside resorts of Frinton, Walton, St Osyth and Clacton. The Pretty Thing is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.

We cater for tourers on the large Greens, a spacious camping field, Buttercup Meadow, and Philomena's Garden, which is exclusively for Glamping. We can assure you of a pleasant stay, whilst enjoying peace, quiet and holidaying as it used to be.

There is always something to see and we are especially popular in August to enjoy Clacton Airshow & the CAMRA real ale & cider festival, as well as many other attractions. We can also tailor theatre breaks through the Westcliff Theatre.

St Osyth, Clacton. Frinton & Walton beaches are superb and all very different. Great for exploring and only 10 minutes drive away.

With plenty to do, we are sure you will love your stay.

We offer you, your family and pets a very warm welcome, don’t just take our word, come & see for yourself, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
