The Huntsman and Hounds, Althorne

  1. Nice little pub between Maldon and Burnham on Crouch selling Wibblers and Doombar amongst others.

    About five acres of grassland with some hook ups. Was still a bit muddy this weekend but only at the entrance behind the pub so i used the entrance direct from the roadside. Despite the decent weather it was not at all busy - about 6 caravans and 12 tents in all. Plenty of room for the kids to run around and play and looked like there were some public footpaths leading off to the rear of the field.

    However, there were only two toilets so had it been any busier, you may be forced to queue. There were two showers and these looked "used". Only £10 for the van for the night and the beer was fairly cheap too. Will probably go back due to the fact its only 40 minutes from me.
  2. decided at last minute to go out for the night yesterday and went back here. Bit more overrun with weeds since last time but still clean toilets and showers and nice pub. Only us and one other overnighter - the other 6 caravans/homes appear to be semi permanent residents of folk who appear to be contractors but didn't hear from them. Spent the night satellite spotting as it was clear skies with no street lights to get in the way.

    As above, ok for one night but probably not for any longer.
