Layer Marney Tower, EssexLayer Marney Tower, Essex

Nestled in the woodland of a country estate near Colchester, you will find a collection of luxury canvas tents complete with shower and wood burning stove (hot tubs an optional extra when booking). Layer Marney Tower is a popular choice amongst families, and it has recently been featured (2015) on Channel 4's Four in a Bed programme. It is a perfect place to combine a family camping holiday (with little added luxuries), woodland walks, nearby market towns and of course the beach, which is only a 20-minute drive away. You can pre-order a breakfast hamper or fresh produce box and even book use of the campfire cooking cart. Plus little ones are well taken care of with cots, highchairs and even a fireguard for the stove.
