    Just thought I'd share this one with you - absolutely lovely and very well situated for local town,pubs, station etc all within a ten minute walk. Great staff and only 5 miles from sandy beaches. Gonna call this 'home' for a while(y)

    My advice is to pass it by and start your trip at Jim's and work north.(y)

    I can vaguely remember a visit to a friend of my Mum's at Westcliff-on-Sea in the 1950s but apart from that I think the only place I've stopped at in Essex was the services on the M11 for half an hour.

    Would it be safe for somebody who only speaks English and comes from the cultured north to visit Clacton? :Eeek:

    Hahahaa.
    Had a drive all round today. Yes, clacton is a bit ...........kiss me quick!!!
    Frinton and Walton on the naze however are quite nice - great for a prom walk and fish n chips!!! Especially in this weather!

    And I reckon I could sort a rally out here - there are 3 fields and plenty of room! Let me get settled first though eh!!! Gotta make sure they'll allow us to stay on our 'rolling 28 day' basis first - all indications are good though;)

    You really want to avoid the place - scruffy in the summer and depressed in the winter. Chavvy all year round...... Go up the coast (no! not Jaywick direction) and Holland, Frinton are quite nice. Walton is ok as well. Plenty of fossilised sharks teeth on the beach at the Naze if you know where to look. Used to live in Holland on Sea for many years.

    To be fair - Clacton is a bit, .......tacky!
    But, the surrounding area is actually very nice - honest!
