This place is a BIG nono. Kids fighting,swearing and more or less having intercourse where all small kids would play. Didn't see a security guard. Would have felt safer in Iraq . Caravans cramed in no privacy. Food rubbish. Local kids come in and fight with kids on holiday. Felt very uncomfortable and unsafe and would not let my kids out of my sight. This is definitely the worst park resorts site I have ever been to. And my kids didn't feel safe either.

A friendly family holiday park on the Eastern coastal side of England. This holiday park is ideally situated to visit local places in the surrounding area.
This park has a good entertainments programme aimed at all ages with plenty of sports and water activities.
The park has an excellat resturant with excellant and varied meals available.
Well worth a visit to experience the fun and laughter of this park.

Valley farm was an excellent holiday for anyone looking for a nice break with children. the outdoor swimming pool was spot on, really clean and well maintained, obviously the good weather helped, couldn't get the kids out of water in the afternoons as they loved it. Evening entertainment for the children was really well run and catered well even for the younger ones under the age of 5, as our 3 year old couldn't wait to get there at halfpast six. Had read reports that the shop was very expensive but found that not to be true, it was in line with what youd expect to pay for thigns in the local corner shop. There was a tesco store just out side Clacton and was only 5 or 6 mins away in the car for anyone requiring a bit more. The park was very clean and the grounds were well looked after, and the bins were emptied on a regular basis. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Valley Farm and would definatley reccomend it to anyone.

We have not stayed in a caravan before as a family, and i haven't as an Adult, so it was with a certain amount of trepidation that we went to Valley farm.
The park was OK, the accommodation was OK. We booked a Gold Plus, despite it being August as the site said the 2 Bed version was a new model for 2012, so i was hoping it would be in decent nick. Given we booked nearly a year in advance you would have throught we would have got what we booked. We didnt, we got a 3 bed. This had pro's in that we could move both the beds in one of the rooms to put the travel cot into it, but cons in that it wasnt AS good as i would have hoped.
That said on the face of it, it looked nice. Closer inspection showed that the Freezer was soo frozen solid that the door didnt shut and non of the draws would open. The bathroom was revoltingly dirty, and the sofa's were on the way out. But if you are prepared to accept you wont be using the freezer, and you will have to clean the bathroom before anyone uses it then it was fine.
The pool area was a good size, with the option of "heated" outdoor pool (22deg), indoor pool and toddler pool, non of which were overly busy given it was the school holidays. The main irritation with this was the amount of 8ish yr olds and Grandmothers in the toddler pool!
The lack of personal care statement is down to me having an accident on site and spending 3 days in hospital before going straight home. Neither Park Resorts, or the site management themselves have so much as asked how I am.
I suspect we will not return, but may have another caravan holiday in the future

First impressions good and swimming pool great for children. Bronze caravan was good for just a weekend stay but have to say clean and had everything we needed. On the plus side the weather was fantastic so the site looked ok. It was apparent this site is mostly privately owned caravans. The downside was the public toilets in the clubhouse with no soap and dryer. Unfortunately there was excrement in the women's toilet and left there what a put off. We told the bar staff who said not much. Be prepared to be absolutely ripped off at the bar. 2 large glasses of wine cost 11.00 so not a cheap evening!!! Our kids loved the evening entertainment and had fun.
