    Three great things about Essex

    350 miles of coastline

    Essex’s huge coastline is home to traditional seaside towns, subtle remnants of history and and all-important breath of fresh sea air. Walk along the Sunshine Coast from Clacton to Frinton to experience it in all its glory.

    Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

    A quaint and quiet change of scenery, Dedham Vale is home to lush greenery, riverside strolls and traditional places to eat. It’s one of the best days out in Essex for all the family, and is very close to Orchards Holiday Village.

    Home to Britain’s oldest city

    The historic centre of Colchester, Britain’s oldest city, is great for grandparents, parents and children alike. The corner of Essex we call home also boasts one of Britain’s smallest towns – Manningtree, and the country’s largest villages – Tiptree, home to the famous jam!
