We had such a great time at Malting Farm. Sammy and her family were attentive, welcoming and excellent in every way, really making a difference to our stay. The location, being under 2 hours from London was great. The kids loved the wide expanse of grass area and the zip wire so they really did just run free for hours. Highly recommended for a break away. Thanks to Sammy for a great stay.

Great experience with our 2-year-old. Lots for him to do and animals to see and interact with. Fantastic welcome from the hosts and excellent facilities. Easy access to beaches and Colchester with its castle and outstanding zoo.

The owners make you feel very welcome and are on hand to help anytime. We had a huge thunder storm our first night and Sammy came and checked we were all ok in the morning. Can't wait to go again to be honest.

Absolutely lovely week spent here Glamping. Beautiful accommodation, friendly hosts, that are there whenever you need them. Spent time at Frinton on sea, it's likes time stood still, beautiful, and went crabbing at Brightlingsea, great fun. Would highly recommend to anyone.
A high quality glamping arrangement with excellent facilities and an honesty shop, all set in a secluded farmland location where children of nearly all ages can be left to roam free and feel refreshingly independent. The owners, Sammy and Will, are extremely friendly in general and helpful for first time visitors. We stayed with three children, ranging from 10 years-old to 6 months! All enjoyed themselves over a three night stay.
The whole thing was very well organised, the range of activities meant that even when it rained we had fun. The field is quite secluded which makes for a peaceful stay, however the location is also really accessible so there are many trips out of the farm that can be made. We didn't get a chance to visit Flatford Mill or Frinton as we enjoyed the accommodation and field so much.

We stayed here for a long weekend with four other families at the end of August. We were greeted by the friendly Sammy who was very helpful and welcoming. We had the most fantastic time and would highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting to go. Fabulous.
