Promised to take our two young grandaughters away on Fri 25 & 26 May .After collecting from school we planned to go to a holiday park with pool and entertainment within approx 1.5 hrs of Dartford.Phone calls to Park Resorts and Haven for their Essex sites have size restrictions .
We are 8mtr + bikes and this appears to be a problem.Maybe Kent ?
Any idea's for our size and distance restriction ?

There's a club site at Kelvedon which might accommodate you
Never been there but might be worth a call to them
Look up Barleylands (adventure farm/park) could suit lively youngsters
Kelvedon has the Secret Nuclear Bunker open to public
Good luck.....

If it’s 8 metres maximum, can’t you forget to tell them about the bikes?

If you do not mind spending the money and have the bikes Try Brighton CC site. Great location and lots to do and see on the sea front, seaworld and all the sea side rides on the beach plus the pier.
Can be done in 1 1/2 hours

I would give The Orchards a ring (0333 202 5262) It’s located at St.Osyth nr Clacton. Yes, it’s a Haven site, but the touring pitches are huge. Could easily manage 8m. The bikes don’t really matter because they won’t be on the van for long when the kids arrive. I’ve found the touring office people pretty good and flexible. Nothing lost by giving them a bell.

Good run from Dartford; over the bridge, A13, A130, A12, a couple of local roads and you’re there!

Not a bad site. Shop, Bar, Pool. Lots for kids and there’s a bus stop right outside the site if you fancy a trip to Clacton or the Factory Outlet.

The Chertsey CC site is near Thorpe Park if that’s any help.

Fen Farm at Mersea is right on the beach.
For another time try the CL at easton farm park in Suffolk, superb for all kids but booked for those dates this year.
