Just got back from a last minute weekend away here staying in a silver plus caravan.
Been going to clacton regularly over the last 30 years and have been on all the caravan sites over the years. This one is one of the worst.
We arrived about 2.30 and was given our van promptly. When we got in there we found damp in the children's room, the carpet and upholstery were dirtier than I've ever seen. And the kitchen area was all sticky and greasy. I went back to the office and complained, even asking if I could upgrade at my expense. I was told they were fully booked but would send down the cleaners.
The cleaners came and told us the floors had just been cleaned but he didn't know why there were crisps on the floor, can't do much about the damp but will clean the kitchen.
We then went to the bar to have a few drinks when I noticed the other table (only other people in bar) were drinking a jug of beer, when I asked for one he went sorry we have none left, (ha ha only two on site????)
Later that night we went to the clubhouse only to find it empty. (Thought they were fully booked) when we got back we went to bed. The bed was of very poor quality infact it is the cheapest mat you can buy (yes I'm a bed salesman) so we thought we'd get out the sofa bed. Now considering we were booked in for 4 adults and 2 children (other couple changed mind) the tv and stand was in the way so you couldn't get the sofa bed out. I unplugged everything moved it all out the way and pulled it out, only to find it was all buckled and wouldn't even lay straight. Probably the worst van I've ever stayed in. Now not all park resorts are bad as ive stayed in camber sands at easter and it was alot better place.
But Valley Farm Clacton is terrible.
Alot better sites to stay in Clacton.
