The Pretty Thing Touring, Camping & Glamping in Essex

Welcome to The Pretty Thing

Come & visit The Pretty Thing, our beautiful, peaceful, Glamping, camping and touring park. Teeming with wildlife, perfect for bird watching by day and star gazing at night. If you like animals, you can also meet our horses, Anthem and Shamrock...

Relax, unwind & enjoy our friendly park close to the historic town of Colchester and the beautiful seaside resorts of Frinton, Walton, St Osyth and Clacton.  The Pretty Thing is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.

There is something to see throughout the year and we are especially popular in August to enjoy Clacton Airshow & the CAMRA real ale & cider festival, as well as many other attractions. We can also tailor theatre breaks through the Westcliff Theatre.

We offer you, your family and pets a very warm welcome, don’t just take our word, come & see for yourself, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
