It is with great sadness that we confirm that we have been unable to arrange any Mucky Races on the Estate at the moment. We always enjoyed welcoming bands of intrepid runners, and throwing you into the muddiest, wettest holes we could find. However, due to technical issues with the organisers we don't feel it is right to host an event in April. 

Watch this space as we may bring cross country running back to Spains Hall Estate in the future...

In the meantime if you want to speak to us about holding your event on the Estate please contact us

North Lodge receives yet another 5 star review on Trip Advisor! Thank you!

"The house is set in beautiful grounds, totally stunning. The cottage itself has been done out beautifully, it's very spacious. But the thing that really struck us was the attention to detail. Bread, milk, jams, cereals...the list goes on. Those little things make a world of difference and add to the stay. I can honestly say this is one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in and I've been to a few!"

Perfect score for Crest Lodge on Trip Advisor, thank you!
by Archie Ruggles-Brise 28 Sep, 2016
A very happy week's holiday and a chance to celebrate two birthdays. Perfect Mediterranean weather climaxed by dramatic thunderstorms. We really enjoyed the beauty of the area. The property's facilities are excellent, we enjoyed very good customer service during the booking process and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this to a friend or relative.

Camping and caravanning truly is the answer to getting away from it all. What can be better than driving off to a beautiful part of the English countryside and getting to know it literally at grassroots level? Pitching your tent so you make the most of the serene sunrise or delightful dusk, or choosing a peaceful spot in which to unhook your caravan to best enjoy your surroundings; nothing can quite equal that setting up of home from home.

If you’re looking for a new campsite to explore, why not visit Spains Hall Estate near Finchingfield in Essex. For the very first time you can take the opportunity to experience the stunning grounds of an Estate boasting almost ten centuries of history, in a location only a stone’s throw from one of the county’s most picturesque villages. The site truly deserves its classification of ‘Hideaway’; tucked away in the 11th century Estate, which is listed in the Domesday Book, you will enjoy a tranquil and leisurely break in this charming spot.

Dairyley Farm at Spains Hall is open from April to October to members of the Camping and Caravanning Club. If you’re not already a member, you can either sign up here and then book with us, or join when you arrive on site and then book your pitch and stay. Grass pitches and sheltered pitches are available for only £10 per night per pitch (up to two adults and two children). We have space for tents, caravans and motorhomes, and you are also welcome to bring your canine companion and enjoy the walking available on the many local footpaths –as long as you clean up after them, of course! Drinking water and a chemical disposal point are on hand, but be aware there are no electrical hookups on site.

Just a mile away is the quintessentially English village of Finchingfield. Stock up on supplies, visit one of the excellent pubs or pretty tearooms, and be sure to stop by the Church of St John the Baptist, parts of which date back to the 12th century. You can linger around the pond, enjoying the ducks and stream meandering through. The village also offers a restored windmill and a picture postcard arrangement of cottages and historic buildings. In all, one of the must-see delights Essex has to offer!

Whether you’re a seasoned camper/caravanner, or if you’re new to the hobby, you will find Spains Hall to be the perfect destination for that much needed rest and relaxation. Leave your everyday life behind and embrace the fresh air, enjoy the great outdoors and watch your pace of life change for the better – all excellent health and lifestyle benefits. You will be in the company of like-minded people or can keep to yourself if you would prefer – there’s enough room for everyone!

To experience a stay at this new site at Spains Hall, simply book a pitch or make an enquiry by calling 07811 454383 or emailing enquiries@spainshall.co.uk . Visit the Spains Hall website for more information and to discover more about the beautiful Estate. We look forward to welcoming you to Dairyley Farm at Spains Hall very soon.
