My heart sank when I read the reviews for this place. So it was with a certain amount of trepidation I arrived at Oaklands. Greeted warmly at reception hoping to check in early. Arrived 2:45 (check in was 4:30) Got keys immediately. We stayed in a bronze two bed caravan. It was spotlessly clean and smelt lovely. Very impressed with...

This was our family holiday and we travelled over 5 hours to get there. We arrived with 2 very tired young children to find no staff in the booking office, trudged over to a full, hot, smelly pub to collect keys, waited over 15 minutes to get anyone who could help. Drove round to our accommodation to find no bedding...

Stayed for a week from the 10-17th October, caravan was clean and tidy. The beds could have been made neater as looked like it had just been thrown on.

We come to this holiday park as often as we can. We always receive fantastic customer service. We choose the same caravan so it feels like home from home. We always book with Harmony who always remembers what caravan we like to be in and nothing is too much trouble. The club house is reasonably priced and staff are friendly.

Myself, my husband and our 3 children came to Oaklands late August. We stayed in a gold 3 bed caravan, it was lovely and roomy. A bit dusty in places (maybe it had been standing empty a while), nothing major. The receptionist on arrival was lovely (I didn't get her name) as was Harmony. We had a problem with the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Oaklands is ideal for those looking for a peaceful countryside setting yet within easy reach of both Colchester with it's great shopping and the popular seaside resorts of the Essex Coast.

You don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy the lake as it’s also an ideal spot to relax and take in the local wildlife. ... more   less
