Golden Grove Caravan & Camping Park

Golden Grove Caravan and Camping Park is located within the private parkland of Saling Grove Estate designed by landscape designer Humphry Repton in 1793.

Hidden by parkland trees, we are a small independent run site extending several acres available to touring caravans and campers, 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.
