Piccotts Lane, Great Saling, Braintree, Essex CM7 5DW

Golden Grove Caravan Park

Golden Grove is located in the parkland of Saling Grove, designed by the famous Georgian landscaper Humphry Repton in 1791.

Hidden by parkland trees, we are a small independent run site extending several acres available to touring caravans, approved by the Camping and Caravan club.

The North Essex landscape remains largely rural; dotted with traditional villages & tiny hamlets linked by a network of ancient green lanes, farm tracks & woodland paths.

Dramatic skylines are interrupted by the expansive branches of the mighty oaks and cedar trees. Wildlife breeds in abundance whilst the hedgerows harbour beautiful flora & fauna.
