Myself , husband, married children, and grandchidren will be visiting Valley Farm again in April.
I have not been there for two years so can't say how things are there at present. All I can say is that it gets booked up very quickly so I suppose that speaks for it's self.
I first visited Valley Farm with my parents over 50 years ago. We are now taking the 5th generation there and they love it. We couldn't more excited if we were going to Orlando (we have all been there as well!)
We have great fun at Valley Farm and the evening Entertainment is the best in any similar type of holiday camp we have ever been to.
Walking distance to beach, The Hungry Horse up the road, less than £100 for 11 of us. Great old style pier, lovely old fashion Frinton on Sea......give it a try.

Room Tip: Go Silver or above or look on line for a nice private caravan.,

Valley Farm Holiday Park is absolutely amazing!This season has been awesome despite a fee ups and downs.All staff have worked incredibly hard from the bar staff to the teamstars and maintenance staff to security.Theres been excellent external cabarets aswell as tje amazing inhouse shows from the teamstars such as super squad heroes.Activities held at the pool were really good as was the use of machines in the arcade(there was more of a variety this season).The 2013 teamstars have been absolutely awesome aswell despite frequent staff changes.Lauren,Kirsty,Jess,Terry and Lindsay put so much effort and dedication in to ensure that everyone who comes to valley has a great time.Theyve been an amazing team and on behalf of all the owners id like to thank them all and wish them all the best.Thankyou team 2013and good luck :)

Though i do have a few suggestions which i would make an already amazing park even better:
-kids disney/cartoon/generation quizzes in the afternoon along with the current general knowledge ones(which mainly applies to adults atm)
-a 12-17s club to run every day of season rather than just through the summer(although it didnt run this season)
-more inhouse shows and entertainment
-more owners events and breakfasts(there like reunions.as all owners come together and it creates such a lovely atmosphere)

Thankyou again for such an awesome season valley farm on behalf of all owners :) xx

Fantastic effort by all the Resort Parks team to make the event special - well worth the trip. And thank you Rachel McKenzie for your friendliness & help again! The week was very well organised & a really good finale for all the resort competitions throughout the summer in all parks

My 4 year old son, husband & I spent October school half term at Valley Farm in a 2 bedroom caravan 841 gold +. The best caravan we have used to date, and we have stayed in three. It was very clean, spacious, and very warm with radiators in all rooms. We stayed for 4 nights, Monday to Friday and paid for it all with Tesco club card vouchers.

The kitchen was well equipped and quite large with a big fridge & separate freezer. An oven & separate grill with hob. Couldn't get the grill to work, but not a problem as I could use a frying pan if I wanted to. There was plenty of storage for clothing etc. The bed was fairly comfortable. The shower was in a bath but was fairly powerful. The heated towel rail was brilliant and dried out the swimming stuff in no time.

The site itself was not very busy which was good for us and is closing down next week for end of season. Due to this some drinks and food advertised on the menu was not available, which was a bit of a shame but did not spoil the holiday at all. We could always get a table and drinks quickly. The food was what you expect and OK priced. Could not complain about any meal we ate.

2 pints would cost about £8, with lemonade / kids drinks about £2

All staff were polite & friendly, we had a light blow in the lounge area which fused the rest of the lighting, a quick call into reception, soon had it sorted.

The indoor pool is a bit small especially when everyone is trying to get in it at the same time so we only ventured in the pool once. My son enjoyed it. A bit odd you had to take off footwear and place on storage before you walked past the pool & into the changing rooms. This meant on the way back, your feet would be soaked and you had to get the towels back out to dry your feet. Someone also took my husbands socks!

My son enjoyed the kids show, and on his first night won a certificate for on of the games. The staff seemed to be great with the kids.

He also enjoyed the arcade with the 2p machines, air hockey and pool.

We did not use the on-site shop or laundrette, so can't comment!

We found Clacton-on-Sea closed at 6pm and nothing was open in he pier. However in the day it was open and we enjoyed it. The pier was great fun and the kids armband for rides was a bargain at only £4.

Would definitionally recommend to others, and would go back.

Room Tip: Gold + was an excellent caravan - number 841

Just spent our school half term family holiday at Valley Farm. We brake up a week earlier than London and South, a blessing in some respects, but we found Clacton-on-Sea was closed. Or good as. Valley Farm was very quiet, but the staff still made us feel welcome despite the reduced services available. Site and amenities very clean, and our caravan was presented immaculately. The best caravan we have used to date, and we have stayed in many. 2013 40" x 12" Atlantis, worth every penny. Thank you Parkresorts Valley Farm, well worth a visit.
