Park reviews: Waterside parks in Essex and Cambridgeshire


Leisure Parks UK has two residential parks, in Essex and Cambridgeshire, Hayes Country Park and Yarwell Mill Country Park.

Hayes Country Park

Hayes Country Park, in Essex, offers a combination of countryside and convenience, surrounded by fields, with river views, yet close to Chelmsford and Southend.

It’s five minutes from both South Woodham Ferrers and Wickford, with essential amenities nearby, plus train routes into London.

The park is a short distance from the city of Chelmsford, the resort of Southend, which has a thriving arts community, and the old seaside village of Leigh-on-Sea, known for its range of eateries.

Hayes Country Park is a waterside location, overlooking the River Crouch, so ideal for proximity to sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, fishing and country walks along the riverside.

Little wonder that residents say that living here is like being on holiday all the time.

The park has a clubhouse – a place to meet friends for a drink, so there is a real sense of community at Hayes Country Park.

Yarwell Mill Country Park

Yarwell Mill Country Park, in Cambridgeshire, has a lovely mix of river and countryside views. The park is surrounded by beautiful villages. Among them Yarwell, where spectacular mellow-limestone buildings create great character.

It’s just 15 minutes from Peterborough, for shopping and amenities.

The park is beside the River Nene; many of the homes have amazing views of the river.

Yarwell Mill has its own private five-acre lake, so fishing opportunities are there for you.

You can relax, enjoy the walks on the park and take in the scenery and wildlife – and the famous Nene Valley Railway is just a six-minute walk away.

A selection of new residential park homes is for sale here and also a few pre-owned homes.

And, if none of the current stock of park homes for sale suits your needs, the park can offer bespoke-built homes from manufacturers including Stately-Albion. The park offers part-exchange opportunities.
